- 1st and 2nd Generation Designs: The DHCR is available with a 1st generation design, or with a new 2nd generation design that includes curving cutouts in the front horizontal air channels for improved airflow and heatsink cooling with 2021-2022 MacBook Pros (M1 Pro/Max), as well as curving cutouts in the through hole for improved active airflow cooling with the optional Cooling Fan Fx. The 2nd gen DHCR is recommended for 2021-2022 MacBook Pros (M1 Pro/Max).
- Cooling Fan Fx: The DHCR has been designed to work with the optional Cooling Fan Fx accessory that boosts heatsink cooling, as well as providing direct internal processor cooling on 2021-2022 MacBook Pros (M1 Pro/Max). The Fx can be bundled with the DHCR or purchased separately later. The Fx comes in multiple fan configurations. The B16 is recommended for most users as a baseline of always-on ultra-quiet cooling. The W20 is recommended for more aggressive cooling that can be used in less noise sensitive environments or switched on as needed. The R17 falls between the B16 and W20. The Fx can be ordered with one of the fan models installed, with the B16 installed and the other two fans included for exchange, or without a fan and electronics for a DIY setup.
- Future Options: The Cooling Fan Fx can be order separately in the future, and the Fx’s bolt and snap modular system allows for easy fan exchange through accessories, and will work with any standard 80x80mm fan.
