Looking for a an absolute monster of an aftermarket heatsink to whack onto that monster 8800 series graphics card of yours? Then you'll be glad to know that Thermalright have just finished modifying their HR-03 VGA cooler to suit 8800 cards, now stamping it the "HR-03 Plus".

You can get the full scoop on this badboy over at Thermalright's website.

Before the end of 2006, many Thermalright supporters and users got to feel the wrath of the awesome cooling power of our VGA cooler, the HR-03. It received nothing but accolades and praises from hardware sites to world-wide end-users. Then near the end of 2006 Nvidia released their 8800 series and we started receiving inquiries about HR-03 compatibility with it. We tested the new 8800GTX in our own lab and found that performance does indeed rise up to expectation but so does the heat that it produces. Unfortunately, HR-03 did not have what it takes to work with the 8800 series, so we hastily went back to the drawing board, did a research on 8800's structures, heat dissipation pattern and amount, and evolved HR-03 into something greater! In time for the celebration of the new year 2007, we proudly announce Thermalright's HR-03 Plus!
