Thermalright Enters the AIO CLC Market with the Turbo Right Series

Thermalright set the standards for CPU cooling with its iconic tower-type heatsinks through the 2000s. The company finally bit the AIO liquid cooling bullet with the new Turbo Right series. Unlike other closed-loop coolers (CLCs), the Turbo Right ships with a full-copper radiator, in which both the fins and coolant channels are made of copper. The base is made of mirror-finished nickel-plated copper. These coolers come with a fill-port and an extra 100 ml of coolant, so you can replenish it over time. The pump-block features an ornament on top with RGB LED lighting.

For now, the Turbo Right comes in two variants based on radiator size, the Turbo Right 240C, and the Turbo Right 360C, featuring 240 mm x 120 mm and 360 mm x 120 mm radiators, respectively. Depending on the variant, you get two or three TY-121BP 120 mm fans, which take in 4-pin PWM input, spin between 600 to 1,800 RPM, and push between 25.76 to 77.28 CFM of air, with a noise output of 19 to 25 dBA, each. Among the CPU sockets supported are LGA2066, LGA115x, and AM4.

Being able to top up a CLC is pretty cool, and Thermalright always did do some great air coolers so maybe these will be good.

it bothers me that we live in a society where everything we buy comes with a screwdriver, instead of people just owning one or borrowing one from a neighbor. the waste of our modern existence is astounding at so many levels.

bad example I know, just eh.

Why is there a picture of a dart board on the CPU block?

Right. What I'm saying is, couldn't they have made it look less like a dart board?

You laugh, but back in the day (mid 00's) people would actually buy Thermalright coolers because they saw the screwdriver as a value-add - the one they were shipping with coolers like the ultra 120 and the TRUE, was actually a pretty good quality tool with a proper handle, not an L shaped object like most.

I know at least one person that bought an Ultra 120 instead of a Tuniq Tower 120 because they knew installing it with a real screwdriver would be less of a chore.

Whats a flow indicator supposed to look like? If its going to be spinning 2000rpm a minute i dont think it would look much like a dart board after that

Or more importantly why does it have to display a flow meter? Software alarms and rising temps will be enough to tell you that it's not working!

Most users simply don't monitor their temperatures or even have software temperature alerts set up. They will simply be using their computer and it will turn off. In those instances, a flow indicator is simply "A thing that moved before that does not move now" when they reboot the system and could be a useful diagnostic tool.

Secondly, it's aesthetically pleasing.

As if I'd share my knowledge with someone who can't even be nice on the internet.

In fact I've lost all my good screwdrivers, and I remember these which come bundled with Thermalright coolers, are fine.

Full-copper radiator. This is great and I'll support their effort $$

Did I mention full-copper rad?

I didn’t see it... but this looks like an Enermax rip off.



You can also fill this up yourself.

Its not copying, it's OEM manufacturing. Enermax makes their own design, offers to build more of the same, with tweaks, for other manufacturers just like Asetek and coolIT do.

Its an AIO, so no, it will be mediocre like all of them, with a price tag that is far too high. Cooling is a simple game of physics, size matters and AIOs lack it.

Sure, it can also be a swirly whirlpool sort of thing so you get dizzy staring at it. Anything else? :D

The Thermalright screwdriver is sweet, I use it all the time :D It came with Le Grand Macho RT, and is needed, unless you have one long enough.. which is doubtful, but maybe. I cant speak for the Ultra 120, but the Ultra 120 Extreme was better than Tuniq Tower.

As for the Turboright.. I am assuming its to appease the massses, since they are infatuated with these types of coolers..

The original ultra was outdone by the Tuniq, and the Extreme added two heatpipes to outdo the tuniq, IIRC.
