    Apart from the Silver Arrow dual-block tower CPU cooler, Thermalright is also readying a gargantuan single-block tower CPU cooler, the HR-02. Measuring 110 (L) x 140 (W) x 160 (H) mm, this cooler makes use of nickel plated copper heatpipes, aluminum fins, and tips the scales at 1.1 kg. Heat is conveyed to the 32 aluminum fins using six 6 mm thick heat pipes. The fins are punched in places to increase turbulence and area of dissipation. Although it doesn't ship with any fans, there are two sets of 120 mm and 140 mm fan retention clips included, along with a tube of Chill Factor III TIM. All current CPU sockets are supported. The HR-02 will reach stores soon.

    Holy smokes 1.1Kg without any fans :eek: add 2 120mm/140mm fans to that and your talking 1.2/1.3Kg :confused:

    the depth of the heatsink also suggest you might need 38mm or thicker fans :eek:

    JMCslob has a post about how these heavy heatsinks can go bad, and what to do to rectify the problem.

    Heatpipes were huge success years ago. I'm wondering what else breakthrough will happen if at all.
    I mean, heatpipes alone seem to work only with massive heatsinks. I wonder if anyone will make very compact cooler with very high heat dissipation capability.

    Indeed, I could see a motherboard easily warping with that heatsink. I have seen mobo warpage after 2 yrs with a noctua 120mm heatsink.

    Thats enough weight that on a bench you wouldnt even have to fasten it down lol

    Perhaps someone will come up with something, but the nasty laws of physics keep getting in the way. ;)

    heatpipes are the same as watercooling, it just moves the heat away from the CPU so it can be dissipated elsewhere. the next big thing will be like the corsair H50, miniature water cooling units that DONT suck.

    "heatpipes are the same as watercooling, it just moves the heat away from the CPU so it can be dissipated elsewhere"

    Well not entirely, water cooling does not involve phase change, where as heat pipes usually do, hence their good heat transfer properties.

    Heat pipes usually have some liquid and a wick, and the liquid will evaporate when heated, and then when it cools it condenses on the wick and returns to the heat source to start the cycle all over. It's the phase change that produces the best heat transfer.

    Doesn't show that well on the pictures, but shown on computes the base is offset to the right, so you can fit high ram modules.

    And for the weight, obviously you'd want these coolers only if they get bolted through the motherboard. My CPU cooler is 929g and problems with it :)

    Only use I see for this is benchers or those with desktop cases, who uses them nowadays ? :confused: oh, and nubs who will break their motherboards and rip their CPU's out of the socket cause they just have to have the big-ass heatsink :roll:

    Does anyone know what the weight limit is for Socket 1336 and 1156?

    Yeah, but that is because the craptastic stock AM2 retention bracket failed. Bolt-thru kits eliminate that issue.

    Well, I can tell you this, I wouldn't strap that in a tower case (unless I literally used straps to hold it upright). 1.1kgs is a MONOLITH heatsink, and I said that about the Prolimatech Megahalems which I got rid of because I was worried about the weight of it, and that was only 800 grams. Well lets hope that from all that weight it will be a brilliant cooler. I'd gladly use it on a bench system, but there is no way I'm strapping that to my motherboard in a tower (even with UD3 and it's 2oz copper core, I wouldn't).

    1.1Kgs isn't that bad, the TRUE Copper weighed in at 1.9Kgs and it didn't have problems with broken boards. The backplate spreads the load out over more surface area of the board, and makes heavy heatsinks like this not an issue.
