Thermalright HR-01

The Thermalright HR-01 is relatively new design for Thermalright. In fact, this is the first Thermalright heatsink to use the tower design. Hence the name HR, which stands for High Riser.

The main advantage of the tower design is that it eliminates most of the compatibility issues that plague large heatsinks. It is also easier to optimize case airflow with such a design, than with a traditional horizontal design.

Now, let's start with a look at the packaging.


The Packaging

Again, Thermalright kept to their classic and functional brown cardboard boxes. Nothing special here, but it does a good job of protecting its contents. Especially with Thermalright's use of custom-fitted styrofoam frames.

In this case, the sticker doesn't tell the full story. The HR-01 supports the Intel LGA775 platform as well as the AMD Socket 754/939/940 platform.

When you open the box, you will find the HR-01 heatsink nicely packed in a thick layer of styrofoam. There's even a piece of foam to cover it and protect it from any damage from the top (of the box). The piece of paper you see in the first picture is actually the user manual.

There is a smaller cardboard box on the right side. This is where all the additional accessories are stored.


The Contents

Inside the box, you should expect to find the following items :

  • One Thermalright HR-01 heatsink
  • One LGA775 mounting clip
  • One Socket 754/939/940/AM2 mounting clip
  • One tube of thermal transfer compound
  • One pair of 120mm fan mounting clips
  • One user manual for K8 installation
  • One user manual for LGA775 installation
