Macho 120 Rev. A


The Macho 120 „Revision A“ as the compact version of the legendary “HR-02 Macho” is one of the most sought after silent-coolers in our program.

The design of the heat sink basically matches that of the bigger HR-02 Macho. At 120 x 130 x 150 mm (L x W x H) the Macho 120 is more compact that its “bigger brother”. Thus the 120 mm Macho is designed for the needs of silent-oriented users that use systems where the Macho is too big to fit in.  

In accordance with the more compact design, the Macho 120 sports a silent-running 120 mm PWN fan and 5 high-end heatpipes.

In the “Revision A” the cooler is part of the most recent, high-quality implementation of the redesigned “Value” Series. The copper heatpipes now are nickel-plated and offer in combination with the black anodized top-fin a very elegant appearance.

Those changes can be found in the True Spirit 90 M and the True Spirit 120 M BW as well. With the revised design, Thermalright combines the high-quality optics of the high-priced high-end coolers with the award-winning, outstanding proce-performance ratio of the proven "value" models.

The outstanding cooling performance of the Macho 120 Rev. A is based on the innovative design of the 30 cooling fins in combination with the use of 5 high-end 6 mm copper heatpipes. The cooling fins are perforated by a plurality of air holes, which counteract air accumulation between the cooling fins and guarantee optimal air exchange. An oval air duct in the middle of the cooler provides controlled air turbulence within the heat sink, whereby the heat can be dissipated more effectively. The special design of the heatsink’s aluminum fins allows for a particularly low air resistance and has been optimized for low-rpm fans.

The heat sink is aligned to the rear of the PC case, which ensures that even when using ram modules with high-rising heat spreaders no incompatibilities will arise despite the impressive dimensions of the heat sink.

A temperature-controlled 120 mm PWM fan is part of the package. The high-end fan has a speed range of 600 – 1,300 rpm (+/- 15%), producing a maximum air flow rate of about 78.5 m³/h. Due to the temperature-dependent control of the fan by the motherboard (if supported), the optimal ratio between volume and cooling capacity is achieved at all times, without the need of manual intervention.

The fan is mounted with the included fan clips on the cooler.

The Macho 120 Rev. A is multiplatform-compatible and includes mounting material for all common CPU-sockets.The cooler can be used on Intel LGA 775/1156/1366/1155/2011/1150/2011-3/1151 as well as on AMD AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+/FM1/FM2/FM2+ boards. In addition, the cooler is equipped with mounting material for the new AMD AM4 Ryzen processors and can be mounted on the new Intel LGA 2066 processors.

Included are self-adhesive anti-vibration pads for the decoupled mounting of the fan, as well as the Thermalright screwdriver. With this extra-long screwdriver, which has a magnetic tip, it is very easy to install the cooler, even if the motherboard has already been mounted in the case (given that an appropriate mounting hole for the installation of the back plate is available in the motherboard tray).
