Thermalright HR-07 Trio Heatpipe Coolers

Introduction

Introduction
 
Ask any enthusiast worth his salt which manufacturer makes the best air coolers and more often than not, the company that gets the honours is Thermalright. The all conquering Thermalright Ultra Extreme CPU air cooler was widely accepted to be the best CPU cooler for the s775 based motherboards. Along with the TRUE, Thermalright expanded on the successful design with chipset and MOSFET heatsinks. They also made memory heatsinks which worked perfectly for those using two slots.
 
Problems however were encountered with using the same heatsinks for the latest Intel chipset because the new design heralded the advent of 6 memory slots, all packed closely together meaning the old Thermalright design could not be used successfully with all six ram slots populated. Never ones to stand still, Thermalright have just released the HR-07 Trio pack which consists of either Type H (high) or Type L (low) heatsinks to combat i7 fitment. Should you wish to cool all six modules together then you now can with the latest kits. 
 
Here's what Thermalright had to say about their latest cooling product:
 
- You won't have to worry about space. Easy installation, no tools needed, able to install 6 DIMMs, high cooling performance and extends life expectancy of your memory module. What more could you ask for?
- Double heatpipes to double heatsinks for fast and efficient cooling
- Proprietary through holes on every fin for efficient ventilation in passive mode
- Vast compatibility across multiple types of memories
- No tools needed for an easy installation keeping manufacturer’s warranty in tact without voiding it
- Supports triple-channel Mode. Option to install on all four memory slots
- Warranty in tact without voiding it

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 DIMMsQuote

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.Quote

$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 swallowQuote
