Manufacturer: Thermalright

Components and Design

The HR-03 Plus features classic Thermalright construction and incorporates a solid copper base, six copper heat pipes, and a large array of aluminum fins. 



Nickel plating gives the cooler a uniform appearance and allows the different materials to be soldered together for optimum heat transfer.

The new HR-03 Plus is very similar in design and construction to the original HR-03 except for the extra two heat pipes and a larger base.



The fin assembly features what Thermalright refers to as 'proprietary through holes on fins for efficient ventilation and proficient cooling'.



The top surface of the wing incorporates two small ridges, which are used to locate a 92mm fan of your choice.  The fan is held in place with classic Thermalright wires.




The Nickel plated copper base exhibits fine machining marks from when it was fly-cut to insure a flat mounting surface.
