Thermalright Intros TA140 EX CPU Cooler

Thermalright today updated its CPU cooler lineup with the new TA140 EX, a tower-type air CPU cooler. The cooler looks slender, but that's only because it's ventilated by a large 140 mm fan. Five 6 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes make contact with the processor through a mirror-finish base of nickel-plated C1100 copper, conveying heat through an aluminium fin-stack of 53 fins.

The included TL-D14X fan features a fluid-dynamic bearing, turns at speeds of up to 1,800 RPM, pushing up to 95.5 CFM of airflow, at 2.25 mm H₂O static pressure, and 30.2 dBA maximum noise output. Among the CPU socket types supported by the Thermalright TA140 EX, are the LGA1200, LGA115x, LGA2066, and AM4. Measuring 145 mm x 72 mm x 158 mm (LxWxH, including fan); the cooler weighs 840 g. The company didn't reveal pricing.

158 mm is tall? When the fan is 140 mm? You've got to be kidding ;)

You need to review Thermalright coolers history m8, Venomous X, Archon, Archon SB/IB-E X2, TRUE POWER, Macho B/C, Macho X2, Le Grand macho.

Prolimatech Armageddon was beaten before it was launched.

Unfortunately I cant find one, its also that Armageddon comes fanless and I think you wont find a review with Thermalright fans on it for direkt comparison with slim one tower Thermalright cooler and same number of identical fans.

Another PR that tells you all the good stuff except TDP rating.

Most coolers don't list TDP anymore. There are a few that still do but for some reason, many have moved to a "compatibility" list.

Given how wonky Intel and AMD’s TDP measurements are I don’t know why anyone would trust a heatsink manufacturers TDP “rating.” There’s a reason Noctua’s recommended list comes with pages worth of clarification.

Agreed. I really do wish AMD and Intel would just agree to a set standard for measuring TDP.
