Comment thread for Thermalright HR-03 Rev.A Review

I've confirmed with Thermalright that the Rev. A fits the 8800GT, however the Rev. A doesn't include heatsinks for the mosfets on that cooler.

They have a HR-03GT coming soon, it's essentially an HR-03 Plus (6 heat pipes instead of 4) with a different bracket to fit the 8800GT, and a few more heatsinks for the mosfets.

I've sent an email to TR asking about the dimensions on that page; it looks to me like they got them mixed up with another heatsink. The late-night support address has replied already:


Those are the only dimensions I have.

Thermalright Support,

...but I don't think I'll have a real answer until tomorrow. :)

Edit: Yep, the dimensions were wrong. Someone else at TR informed me that they've updated the web site.

I'll be testing with my 8800GT soon. We were planning on including 8800GT testing with this review but due to time constraints we were not able to include it. As for MOSFET coolers, from what I see, if you install the optional fan it will be blowing directly onto the MOSFETs anyways...which should cool them down quite well. There is also the option of buying some cheap heatsinks and installing them on the MOSFETs.
