OC3D Review: Thermalright HR-07 Trio Heatpipe Coolers

"Need to cool down your memory modules? No room for noisy fans? Got 12GB or more to cool? Maybe Thermalright have the answer with the new HR-07 Trio..." - by W3bbo

Nice review as usual.

One issue;

Test Setup

For today's testing we will be using the Gigabyte EX-58 UD5, a mid-range Core i7 motherboard from Gigabyte that will allow us to push the memory on test to its absolute limit. Here's a breakdown of the rest of the components:

Processor

Intel Core i7 920 'Nehalem' @ 2.66Ghz

Motherboard

DFI Lanparty T3eH6 DK

I wonder if they made they a bit thinner it'd be easier to fit and would still cool them?

Nice idea though, really does look better than plain DIMMs

Looks like an ace set, although the price hurts :X. Also, I don't think it would fit on my UD5 with noctua cooler. Even as it is now the fan goes a few mm into the DDR3_4 slot (iirc) airspace.

$150 for a tri-chan setup is just too much, especially since there's nothing extra fancy about these coolers

if they were $30 each it'd be much easier to swallow

Tbh m8, I'd forfeit the second fan on the Noctua for a set of these. The second fan adds very little to the cooling of the noctua anyway iirc.

Hard to say really m8 as the heat is transfered from the outside of the module, via the heatpipe to the fins.

Price is really not too bad. Consider that some people spend just as much on watercooling connections (bitspower?) which are, if we are being totally honest, just for bling then it is not hard to justify spending the same amount on something more usefull that not only looks the part but cools great as well.

I think that the pricing is perfect considering that these do perform so sweeeetly and live up to it.

you could always turn the cooler 90 degrees.
