Thermalright Rolls Out AXP-90 Full Copper CPU Cooler

Thermalright rolled out the AXP-90 Full Copper top-flow CPU cooler for low-profile PC builds. A smaller sibling of the AXP-100 Full Copper, and a variant of the aluminium-based original AXP-90, this cooler features a dense copper fin-stack that's arranged along the plane of the motherboard. Four 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes make indirect contact with the CPU over a mirror-finish copper base-plate, pulling heat through the fin-stack. A 15 mm-thick 92 mm TL-9015R fan ventilates the fin-stack. This fan takes in 4-pin PWM input, spins at speeds of up to 2,700 RPM, pushing up to 42.58 CFM of air, with as low as 22.4 dBA of noise output. With the fan in place, the AXP-90 Full Copper measures 97 mm x 92 mm x 47 mm (WxDxH), weighing 490 g. There are two sub-variants of the cooler specific to CPU socket type supported, the AXP-90 Full Copper LGA115X, and AXP-90 Full Copper AM4. Available on Chinese e-tailers such as T-Mall, the AXP-90 Full Copper is priced at RMB 299, or the equivalent of USD $42.70.

Thermalright Rolls Out the True Spirit 90M Rev B CPU Cooler

Thermalright today rolled out the True Spirit 90M Rev B CPU cooler. A major update to the True Spirit 90M Rev A from 2013, the Rev B comes with four 6 mm-thick heat-pipes instead of three. The aluminium fin-stack pushed slightly further to the left and top to free up more clearance near the motherboard's memory area and the M.2 slot closest to the CPU socket. It also has an updated aesthetic (different fan colors). Support is added for some of the newer CPU sockets, such as AM4.

Interestingly, the thermal load capacity between the two revisions remains unchanged at 120 Watts. Measuring 102 mm x 50 mm x 125 mm (WxDxH), the cooler weighs 365 g, which is in fact 22 g lighter than the Rev A. The fan takes in 4-pin PWM input, spins between 800 to 2,000 RPM, and pushes up to 39.36 CFM of air, with a noise output of 27 dBA. The True Spirit 90M Rev B replaces the Rev A at its $29 price.

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.

Thermalright Intros Silver Arrow IB-E Extreme Rev. B CPU Cooler

Thermalright today rolled out the Silver Arrow IB-E Extreme Rev. B CPU cooler. Thermalright has made changes to the design to make sure the fin-stack is slightly offset from the base in directions that free up headroom near the memory area and topmost expansion slot of a typical mainstream-desktop motherboard, giving you easy access to the memory and M.2 slots closest to the CPU socket.

Heat drawn from a heavier mirror-finished nickel-plated copper base is conveyed to the fin-stacks by eight 6 mm-thick heat pipes. The lavish use of heavy copper used in this heatsink make it tip the scales at 850 g, without fans. With both its fans installed, the Silver Arrow IB-E Extreme Rev. B can handle thermal loads of up to 320W. Each of the two included TY-143 140 mm fans spin between 600 to 2,500 RPM, pushing 31.4 to 130 CFM of air, with a noise output ranging between 21 to 45 dBA. Thermalright has updated the CPU socket support to include AM4 and LGA2066, besides LGA115x and LGA2011(v3). The heatsink measures 155 mm x 130 mm x 163 mm (LxWxH). The company didn't reveal pricing.

Thermalright HR-22 Plus Black Heatsink Pictured

Thermaltake is ready with an all-black version of the HR-22 Plus CPU heatsink. This monstrosity, pictured next to a 350 ml soda can for scale, can handle processors with up to 65 W TDP without needing a fan, and over 200 W with up to two 120 mm fans mounted in push-pull fashion. The black variant features anodized aluminium fins and nickel-plated copper fins. The fin-stack consists of 35 large indented and punched fins through which eight 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes pass, which indirectly pull heat from a nickel-plated copper base. Measuring 150 mm x 120 mm x 159 mm (LxWxH), the heatsink alone weighs 1.12 kg. The company didn't reveal pricing or availability, but apparently this variant is available in China.

Thermalright Intros AXP-100 Full Copper CPU Cooler

The last time Thermalright gave a "Full Copper" twist to one of its bestselling CPU coolers was 10 years ago. The AXP-100 Full Copper sees the coming together of a pure copper fin-stack, six 6 mm exposed copper heat pipes, a copper base for indirect transfer to the heat pipes, and a reddish-orange fan. The height of the heatsink is 44 mm, which interestingly, is less than even that of the AXP-100 RH (reduced height) variant. The heatsink measures 108 mm x 121 mm x 44 mm (WxDxH), weighing 640 g, almost double that of the AXP-100 RH, and about the same as the AXP-100 Muscle. The included TY-100 fan is a 120 mm spinner, with a range of 900 to 2,500 RPM, PWM input, 16 to 44.5 CFM air-flow, and 22 to 30 dBA noise output. Among the sockets supported are LGA2066, LGA115x, and AM4. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Thermalright Intros Silver Arrow TR4 CPU Cooler

Thermalright today introduced a variant of its Silver Arrow dual fin-stack, tower-type CPU cooler for AMD socket TR4, meant for Ryzen Threadripper processors. Capable of handling thermal loads of up to 320W, the cooler can be paired with even upcoming 250W TDP 24-core and 32-core Threadripper II models. Although bearing the same name, the Silver Arrow TR4 bears little design resemblance with the Silver Arrow ITX-R or the Silver Arrow SB-E, or even the original Silver Arrow from 2010. It's the largest cooler of this class, with an enlarged nickel-plated copper base designed to provide full coverage of the Threadripper IHS, from which eight 6 mm-thick heat pipes draw heat, with the two aluminium fin-stacks propagating along their ends.

Nested between the two fin-stacks is a 140 mm fan which takes in 4-pin PWM input, spins between 600 to 2,500 RPM, pushing 53.3 - 220.9 m³/h, with a noise output ranging between 21 - 45 dBA. With its fan in place, the Silver Arrow TR4 measures 155 mm x 103 mm x 163 mm (LxWxH). The narrow width ensures clearance for the memory slots that flank the CPU socket from either side. The fin-stack itself is offset sideways to ensure clearance for the topmost PCI-Express slot on your motherboard. You can latch on two additional fans. A syringe of Thermalright's Chill Factor III TIM comes included. The cooler tips the scales at 1,050 g. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Thermalright Intros ARO-M14 Series CPU Coolers for AMD Ryzen

Thermalright today introduced a pair of high-end CPU air coolers specially designed for AMD socket AM4 processors, the ARO-M14. Available in two variants, the ARO-M14G with a grey top-plate, and the ARO-M14O, with a "Ryzen Orange" top-plate, the two coolers are heavily based on the company's HR-02 Macho Rev B cooler, but feature socket AM4 retention modules (support no other socket), an embossed Ryzen logo on the top-plate, and come with pre-applied thermal paste. A 2 g Chill Factor syringe is included for future top-ups.

The ARO-M14 features a large aluminium fin-stack that propagates at an offset from the base, for additional memory area clearance. Unlike the Macho Direct, it features a nickel-plated copper base through which six 6 mm-thick heat-pipes pass, indirectly drawing heat. The aluminium fin-stack is capped off by a die-cast metal plate. An included TY-147 A 140 mm fan, spinning between 300 - 1,300 RPM, pushes air through the heatsink at 28.7 - 125 m³/h, with a noise output of 15 - 21 dB(A). Thermalright claims the cooler can handle TDP of up to 240W. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Thermalright Announces Retail Availability of the AXP-100RH CPU Cooler

With the AXP-100RH Thermalright presents a slightly higher version of the popular HTPC cooler to match the AXP-100H Muscle. We would also like to use the opportunity to introduce the Silver Arrow ITX-R, which will become available at the beginning of March. The AXP-100RH has been designed for users who are looking for maximum cooling capacity at minimal dimensions. The adjustment in height became necessary to match the higher VRM cooler of the most recent ASUS "Republic of Gamers" MAXIMUS motherboard series.

The black and red design of the original AXP-100R was meant as a homage to the "Republic of Gamers" series. In order to use the cooler on the new Mini-ITX motherboards, the height was increased by 7 mm. With its 51 mm (65 mm with the fan), it is the perfect cooler for compact home theater/multimedia systems or minimalistic work stations with a limited height.

Thermalright Intros the Silver Arrow ITX-R CPU Cooler

Thermalright unveiled the Silver Arrow ITX-R CPU cooler. A variant of the original Silver Arrow, this cooler is optimized for mini-ITX builds, with a design focus on clearance near the bottom fins of the fin-stack, making them fit for mini-ITX motherboards, including clearance around the memory, VRM, and PCI-Express slot areas. The cooler features a conventional type-D dual aluminium fin-stack design. The included 130 mm fan, nested between the two fin-stacks, spins between 300 to 1,300 RPM, pushing up to 94.8 m³/h of air. Measuring 103 mm x 153 mm x 150 m, it weighs about 600 g, and supports most modern CPU socket types, including LGA2011v3, LGA115x, AM3+, and FM2+. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Thermalright AXP-100H Muscle and the Narrow ILM Mounting Kit Now Available

Introducing the AXP-100H Muscle and the Narrow ILM Mounting Kit. With the AXP-100H Muscle, Thermalright offers a slightly modified version of the HTPC "Value" cooler, which is aimed primarily at price-sensitive fans of compact coolers. The AXP-100H Muscle has been heightened a little bit in order to ensure, that it fits for example on the Asus "Republic of Gamers" Maximus VIII Impact motherboard, with its higher VRM-coolers.

Due to the higher distance between base and heat sink, the cooler is only 7 mm higher than its predecessor. Still, the AXP-100H "Muscle" is just 51 mm high (or 65 mm with the fan included). The most striking feature of this powerful cooler thus remains the particularly low profile. As such- due to the higher distance between base and heat sink. The compact cooler is predestined for HTPC systems or minimalistic work computers.

Thermalright Announces the Le Grand Macho RT CPU Cooler

Thermalright annouced the Le Grand Macho RT CPU cooler. With the Le Grand Macho RT we offer an actively cooled version of our famous semi-passive flagship. Thanks to the silent-running TY 147 B with fluid dynamic bearing, the Le Grand Macho RT can cool up to 280 Watt. The design of the heat sink has not been changed and is still asymmetrical. This offers the highest possible compatibility to the most recent motherboards. Thus it is guaranteed that the Le Grand Macho RT neither blocks the RAM spaces, nor the top-most PCIe slot on current ATX-boards.

Visually, the Le Grand Macho RT is top of the line. The heatsink shines in silver nickel plating and features a black anodized top fin, combined with the black and white fan. The Le Grand Macho comes with a TY 147 B PWM fan included. The fan is a slightly upgraded version of the TY 147 A. It uses an FD bearing and is, also thanks to the side vents in the fan frame, even more silent than the TY 147 A. At 14 - 20 dB(a) the fan moves up to 125 m³/h through the cooler. The fan speed ranges from 300 - 1,300 rpm.

Thermalright Announces the Macho 120SBM CPU Cooler

Introducing the Macho 120 SBM. A new cooler joins the Macho Family: With the Macho 120 SBM Thermalright added a compact version of its popular Macho 120 Rev. A to its portfolio. Its narrower design makes it the ideal candidate for Mini-ITX or Micro-ATX systems, where it can score with its maximum compatibility. With dimension of 130 x 101 x 150 mm the Macho 120 SBM is noticeably thinner than its "big brother." Thus it can easily fit in cases for which the Macho 120 Rev. A was too big. The newly designed TY 127 PWM fan provides the necessary airflow and guarantees the cooler an outstanding cooling performance.

The concept of the heatsink aligned to the rear that is used for all the coolers of the Macho family is also part of the design of the Macho 120 SBM, which eliminates the possibility of interference with RAM-coolers almost completely. Five 6 mm heatpipes, in conjunction with the 30 aluminum cooling fins in the typical Macho design ensure that the cooler offers a superior heat dissipation. The fins offer a particularly low air resistance and have been optimized for low-rpm fans.

Thermalright Announces the Macho Direct CPU Cooler

Introducing the Macho Direct from Thermalright. With the Macho Direct we present our first Heatpipe Direct Touch cooler. We are expecting it to reach the top of the HDT-cooler charts thanks to its particular conception. The cooler is based on the proven Macho-Design and is aimed at customers who are looking for an effective cooler at a budget.

The successful concept of the powerful heatsink, which is still aligned to the rear, was not changed. The Macho Direct also uses the special design of the aluminum cooling fins - indicative for a very low air resistance - that has been optimized for low running fans. Several openings counteract the accumulation of air between the cooling fins, so that an optimum air exchange is ensured.

Thermalright Intros Le Grande Macho CPU Cooler

Thermalright rolled out its latest flagship CPU cooler, the Grand Macho, or Le Grande Macho as it's probably known in French markets, as picked up by our colleagues at FanlessTech. An extremely beefed up version of the original Macho, this off-center aluminium fin tower-type cooler features more fins, including odd-shaped fins that wrap around the base; an additional heat-pipe, taking its tally to 7, compared to 6 on the original, and 8 on the HR22.

Another of its characteristics is a matte-black top-fin. Although the tower is off-center, there are cutouts in the fin-stack for DIMM clearance on either sides (should help with LGA2011/v3 builds in which there are DIMM slots on either sides of the socket. The cooler measures 150 mm x 120 mm x 159 mm, weighing 900 g. The cooler is designed for both passive (up to 95W TDP), and active (up to 300W), with a pair of 120 mm spinners in push-pull configuration. The company didn't detail pricing or availability.

In order to avoid incompatibilities to RAM modules or motherboard components as much as possible, the nearly square heatsink has been placed directly above the CPU-socket.

Thermalright Announces True Spirit 140 BW Rev A CPU Cooler

Air cooling expert Thermalright launched the True Spirit 140 BW Rev A CPU cooler, the latest iteration of its popular 140 mm-fan ready tower-type cooler. This revision sees the overall height of the main heatsink lowered by 5 mm, by thinning the base a little, and compacting the fin-stack (without reducing the number of fins). A matte black fin tops off the stack. The cooler uses six 6 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes, that convey heat drawn from a mirror-finish nickel-plated copper base, through the fin stack, which can hold on to a pair of 140 mm fans. A Thermalright TY-142 spinner comes included. Including this fan, the cooler measures 80 mm x 155 mm x 165 mm (WxLxH), weighing 770 g. It supports nearly every modern CPU socket type, including LGA2011v3, LGA1150, AM3+, and FM2+. Thermalright could price the cooler on par with the existing True Spirit 140, at US $55.

Thermalright Announces HR-02 Macho Rev. B CPU Cooler

Since the release of the Thermalright HR-02 Macho in the summer of 2011 the semi-passive cooler has been the reference in the field of low-noise coolers. Copied several times since then, the Macho is still unbeaten in its price range even after more than 3 years.

Nevertheless, Thermalright did not rest on their laurels and continued to develop the cooler. Based on the new, highly acclaimed "IB-E" flagships Silver Arrow and Archon, the Macho Rev. B now also features an enlarged, nickel plated, and polished base (53 x 40 mm).

Thermalright Announces HR-02 Macho Zero CPU Cooler

Since its release in the summer of 2011, the Macho is undoubtedly the first choice for hardware enthusiasts who are looking for a very powerful and quiet CPU cooler. Now, the favorite Thermalright cooler of all times is available in a Special Edition for silent fans. True to its motto "innovate - don't imitate," Thermalright consequently improves on the original cooler concept and implements suggestions by their fan base. The result is a further optimized cooler which is not only improved in terms of its looks.

The cooler is presented in a stylish "Black Nickel Design" and thus stands out from the "gray" mass of CPU coolers. The copper heatpipes and the mounting kit are also black nickel plated. In connection with the black anodized Top Fin the cooler offers a probably unique elegant appearance. The main focus of the Macho Zero was ultra-quiet operation. The cooler is accordingly not equipped with a fan.

MSI Planning Gaming Series Cases and Coolers

"Gaming Series" proved to be a successful way for MSI to package its graphics cards and motherboards. The signature deep-red and black color scheme, coupled with the "dragon" logo deck up MSI products in a premium way that only ROG managed for ASUS; and the company is looking to milk it further. According to an Expreview report, MSI is planning to launch Gaming Series-branded cases and cooling solutions. MSI isn't new to cases, but its cases haven't exactly made a mark for themselves, or seen wide availability. The company will, hence, tie up with proven case (and cooling) manufacturers such as NZXT, and share its branding with them.

Enthusiasts in China spotted MSI Gaming Series variants of popular NZXT cases, such as the Phantom 410 (pictured below), and also certain cases from Jonsbo, a local Lian Li-like case maker that specializes in all-aluminium monoliths. Sources also told Expreview that MSI could share the Gaming Series brand with the likes of Thermalright/Cogage, which could launch a variant of its True Spirit TS120 tower-type CPU air cooler.
