    Default Thermalright HR-02 Passive Heatsink

    The Thermalright HR-02 is a passive CPU cooler, and we're not going to baby it today. Not only are we going to strap it without a fan onto a Core i7 monster, we're also going to run it head-to-head against two of the best heatsinks we've seen on the market, the Noctua D14 and Prolimatech Megahalems to find out which one is the best passive heatsink out there.

    Thanks guys.

    The i7 was not overclocked for the passive test. 2.93GHz and hyperthreaded was enough to push the heatsinks to their thermal limit, and in the case of the Megahalems, fail.

    Screwdriver was a very nice bonus, I have to admit. The HR-02 is a huge single tower heatsink and awfully pricey, but the build quality is outstanding and it's the best passive cooler I've ever seen.
