So in response to this Thermalright developed the T-Radē specifically aimed at supporting multi-card configurations. With its slim 25mm height the T-Radē offers the same nickel-plated copper heatpipe and aluminum fin cooling as the HR-03 series, but in a much thinner package. The original T-Radē supported nVidia 8800 and 9800 series as well as ATI 3800 and 4800 cards. Once again however the nVidia GT200 core cards were left out. I'm happy to report that Thermalright has addressed this and have sent over their latest revision of the cooler for review, the T-Radē GTX.
The T-Radē GTX continues support for nVidia 8800/9800 and ATI 3800/4800 cards while adding the nVidia GT200 55nm core cards to the compatibility list, although for some reason the 65nm GTX 260 and 280 cards are not included. The T-Radē GTX uses the same overall design as the original, including six copper heatpipes, large aluminum fin surface area and dual 92mm fans included. Can the compact T-Rad really cool as well as the awesome HR-03 series though? Join me as I aim to find out!
