Thanks
Infonec in Markham (infonec.com) sells these. I saw a bunch of them at the store when I bought a Thermalright 90 Ultima for my Q6600.

I've also got the HR-03 for my X1900GT. I must say it is a great cooler, especially compared to that crap stock one. The adhesive on those ramsinks is terrible, A few that came in the package just wouldn't stick. Will definitely buy again for future cards, unless something better comes out.

Ya that's what everyone says about the little ramsinks, they don't stick very well..
I wonder if you heat them up first, like warm them up in the oven for a minute that might activate the sticky properties.
I just got confirmation from Fedex my HR_03 + is in my local Fedex hub, so I will be getting today..
I also just bought a AF 9225 fan for it..

Well I just got it at 1:30pm and installed it..
Now my idle temps are at 52c which is good because with stock cooling it was almost 70c and high 80s to low 90's load..
Now load is 60-65c
I used AS5 for thermal paste instead of thee included cheap stuff.
I also use a AF 9225 Fan 2000rpm 34.0 cfm Fluid Dynamic Beraing
I give this cooler a big thumbs up..
PS I never had any of the ramsinks fall off either..
I just really cleaned the ram chips with alcohol and then used can compressed air to dry them..I guess it worked..

Hey, anyone know if this will work on a P35 board, like yours, Jhayman, only with a Thermalright Ultra 120 Xtreme? I would want to mount the cooler the way you have it, over the top like that. I can't discern if there is enough room....

Is it the same board Asus P5KC?
If so I think it will just barely fit with like an inch between the 2..

well since installing HR-03 Plus for 24hrs now idle temps used to be 60c now they have gone down to 48c idle I guess the AS5 is doing it's job right..

If I take the side off my case my idle temps go down to 46c.

Yea I have the same problem with the ram sinks on my hr-03. If you dont' get them on right the first time they loose all their stickiness. Now they won't stick on at all. I'm having 2 end up using some thermal epoxy to get them on.

Think that's bad? My review unit was missing the screws for the HSI bridge heatsink. Well, looks like that review will be pushed back until TR can send me some more...
