But as new video cards are released, new designs must be taken into account. Thermalright has combined the wrap-around design of the original V1 cooler with their through-hole technology from the HR series and produced the HR-03 VGA cooler. There are several versions of this cooler, the HR-03 GT represents the latest edition, compatible with the newest nVidia G92 (8800 GT/GTS) and ATI RV670 (HD38x0) cards. The HR-03 GT features six heatpipes and the capability for a 92x25mm fan (not included) as well as the ability to mount in either a wrap-around or forward-hanging orientation. Thermalright claims the cooler is so good, it can even be used passively, without the benefit of a fan.
