With the AXP-100 Muscle Thermalright once again impressively proves that it’s possible to offer top quality at an affordable price. As a member of the “Value” series this especially compact and powerful HTPC cooler offers exceptional value for money.

The "Muscle" is a revised version of the award-winning Thermalright AXP-100. By eliminating cost intensive features, like the refined heatpipe caps and the sliding "Enhanced Fan Mount", the AXP-100 Muscle can be offered at a very attractive price.

The main feature of the cooler is the ultra-low height of just 44 mm (58 with the fan included). Thus the AXP-100 is the first choice when compact dimensions are of the essence. The AXP-100 Muscle is perfectly fitted for Home Theater/Multimedia systems with a low profile.

The AXP-100 Muscle makes use of the T-shape “down draft” cooler design, which directs the air flow perpendicular to the motherboard, thus cooling the surrounding components as well. This way voltage converter, memory banks and chipset can be effectively cooled under ideal circumstances.

In total, the AXP-100 features six nickel plated heatpipes, which are soldered to the base plate to ensure the best possible heat dissipation. The special design of the 40 aluminium cooling fins is designed to minimize air resistance and effectively contributes to a particularly effective reduction in temperature.

Included is a high-quality TY 100 fan with a fan speed of 900 – 2,500 rpm (+/- 15%), which is automatically regulated by means of PWM-signal of the motherboard (if supported). Thus the optimal ratio between sound volume (22 - 30 dBa) and cooling capacity is guaranteed at all times, without the need to manually engage. The fan sports black & white colors, as do all the “Value” coolers.

The fan covers the heat sink almost in total, guaranteeing the best possible heat dissipation. The fan is screwed to the heat sink, slipping of the fan is not possible.

The included universal mounting kit supports all actual Intel- and AMD sockets (Intel LGA775/1156/1155/1150/1151 und AMD AM2/AM2+/AM3/FM1/FM2). The installation is easy and self-explaining - an illustrated manual (English and German) is included.

The equipment is completed by the excellent Thermalright Chill Factor thermal paste (blister).
