Thermalright HR-22 CPU Cooler Displayed
Ryan Martin / 3 years ago
While we did our best to cover as much of Computex as possible in our Computex event section, it just wasn’t possible to cover everything as there was so much at Computex 2013. But thankfully TechPowerUp were at hand to grab a lot of stuff we missed and interestingly they managed to find the new Thermalright HR-22 CPU cooler at the Nanoxia booth.
The HR-22 is the evolution of the HR-02 from Thermalright. The main change is a shift from six 6mm nickel plated heatpipes to eight 6mm nickel plated heatpipes which means it should have a fair bit of extra cooling potential. Furthermore the Thermalright HR-22 has an even larger aluminium heatsink stack when compared to the HR-02. Like the HR-02 it is expected that this CPU cooler can be used passively but Thermalright will supply a version with a fan, as these images show.
The HR-22 continues the off-centred design that allows in the most part 100% RAM compatibility even with a full sized 25mm thick 140mm Thermalright TY-141 fan. Yet on LGA 2011 and LGA 1366, where there are RAM modules on both sides of the socket, you will probably find that the RAM slots near the motherboard I/O (as demonstrated in the above picture) end up getting blocked while the ones nearest the SATA ports are unobstructed.
Expect more details of this product soon and hopefully we will have a review for you guys. If you missed our review of the Thermalright HR-02 then be sure to check that out here.
