Le Grand Macho RT

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.

Macho 120 SBM

A new cooler joins the Macho Family: With the Macho 120 SBM we add a compact version of our popular Macho 120 Rev. A to our 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.

The TY 127, our first 120 mm model in the well-known TY-design, offers a wide control range between 300 and 1,300 rpm, which results in an air flow of 21.9 – 94.8 m³/h. Thus the fan offers a higher airflow when compared to the 120 mm fan of the Macho 120 Rev. A. For users who prefer to add a second fan, a total of two pairs of fan clips are included.

Macho X2

With the Macho X2 we offer a limited special edition of our award-winning Macho Rev. B. Two black TY 142 fans (800 rpm, 15 dB(a), 77m³/h) guarantee a powerful, yet silent cooling of your CPU.

Like the Macho Rev. B the Macho X2 features the enlarged, nickel plated, and polished base (53 x 40 mm), which we only used for our high-end models in the past. The heatsink shines in silver nickel plating and features a black anodized top fin.

The Macho X2 comes with two TY 142 fans with double-ball bearing. This not only allows for an even better cooling performance of the highly regarded cooler. The use of two fans guarantees also an extremely silent operation. An enclosed Y-cable allows it to operate both fans on a single connector on the mainboard.

By the way: For users, who want to add a second fan to their existing Macho, the Macho fan clips are now sold separately.

Macho 90 and Silver Arrow ITX

Right before for Christmas we present two new CPU coolers, which have been designed especially for fans of compact Mini-ITX or Micro-ATX systems: The Macho 90 and the Silver Arrow ITX.

The Macho 90 is the newest member of our highly successful Macho Family and rounds off the series. The layout is tailored to fit the typical limitations encountered when dealing with small sized Mini-ITX motherboards. The height of just 135 mm allows the installation of the cooler in various compact PC cases.

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. Other features include the premium processing with four nickel-plated heat pipes, highly polished base and black anodized top fin. Included is a high quality 92 mm PWM fan (max. 27 dB(A)), as well as our popular screwdriver.

The Silver Arrow ITX, which has been introduced by us during Computex 2014, is aimed at power users, who are looking for exceptional performance for their compact systems. The cooler comes in a stylish black nickel design.

The TY 149 has been specially designed in cooperation with Asus to meet the color combination of the high-end “Republic of Gamers” product line.The layout of the Silver Arrow ITX is optimized to guarantee no incompatibilities to those Mini-ITX boards, so the cooler will not interfere with VGA-cards or RAM modules.

True Spirit 140 BW Rev. A

Soon after the launch of the Macho Zero and just after the updated Thermalright HR-02 Macho Rev. B has been released, we now present the True Spirit 140 BW Rev. A.

Our latest single tower cooler is the optimized version if the True Spirit 140, which works as a more compact version in addition to the True Spirit 140 Power. True to their motto “innovated – not imitated” we again implement ideas from our fans worldwide.

The True Spirit 140 BW Rev. A offers maximum cooling capacity at an affordable price with very compact dimensions.

For the best possible compatibility to motherboards and PC-cases, the aluminum fins of the True Spirit 140 BW Rev. A are laterally offset. This way, incompatibilities to top mounted fans or PSUs can be completely avoided. Additionally, the total height of the True Spirit 140 BW Rev. A is reduced by approximately 5 mm with the new design, which means that the cooler can now be installed in more compact midi towers, for which the predecessors were simply too high. In addition the top-most PCIe slot will not be blocked anymore.

Like with its predecessors the width of the True Spirit 140 BW Rev. A is just 80 mm including the fan. Incompatibilities of the fan to the adjacent memory banks are avoided. In terms of optics, the True Spirit 140 BW Rev. A follows the design of the “Value” series: The copper heat pipes and the base of the heat sink are nickel plated and offer in combination with the black anodized top fin a highly refined look.

The original: HR-02 Macho Rev. B

Ever since we released the 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, we did not rest on our laurels and continued to develop the cooler. Based on our 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).

Thanks to this feature – otherwise only seen in our high-end models – the cooling capacity could be significantly improved and the advantage in performance over competing models further increased. First reviews from renowned test pages offer an impressive demonstration of this.

In order to further improve the look of the Macho Rev. B, the heatsink shines in silver nickel plating and features a black anodized top fin, like other “Value” coolers.

The proven TY 147 PWM fan has been improved as well. In the new revision TY 147 A, the minimum rpm of the fan has been reduced from 900 to just 300 rpm. The maximum speed of 1,300 rpm remains unchanged.

Maximum cooling at 0 dB: Macho Zero

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, our most favorite cooler of all times is available in a Special Edition for silent fans.

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. For the introduction into the market, the cooler is bundled with a 120 or 140 mm fan duct for semi-passive operation. Thus, the user can fit the cooler according to their desires. Whether you want to use the cooler in passive mode, combine it with a fan duct for semi-passive operation or use it in active mode combined with a suitable fan – everything’s possible.

A special feature of the Macho Zero is the redesigned base plate of the heat sink. Like with our “IB-E” flagships Silver Arrow and Archon X2 it now is much larger (53 x 40 mm) and has been optimized for state-of-the-art multicore processors, like the new Intel Core i7 models.

The Single-Tower cooler elite: Archon IB-E X2 and True Spirit 140 Power

Yet another proof that Thermalright coolers are among the best that is available around the world can now be seen online. After the True Spirit 140 Power has been awarded the “Kauftipp 2014” Award by the well-known reviewers from Ton’s Hardware, shortly after the cooler had been released, now the Archon IB-E X2 made quite an impact.

Well known is the asymmetrical design of the new heat sink, which ensures maximum compatibility to actual motherboards and cases. This new design was the reason for the Tom’s Hardware editors to grant it the “Elite” award, which is reserved for products that offer highly innovative features. That this award is only rarely used can be seen in this excerpt from the test summary:

"Given the unique properties we assign - for the first time in years - an “Elite” award for the best currently available cooler in this size class on the market."

New Single-Tower cooler flagship: Archon IB-E X2

With the Archon IB-E X2 we present a revised version of one of the most powerful single tower coolers in the world. The Archon IB-E X2 uses a dual-fan design as well, which has been optimized for the needs of the most demanding users.

The cooler has been revised in accordance with current customer requirements and makes excessive use of innovative new features to improve an already excellent product even further. The most important innovation of the Archon IB-E X2 is the new layout of the heatsink:

To ensure the best possible compatibility with motherboards and components used, the two aluminum cooling blocks are now arranged asymmetrically. In addition, with the overall lower design and the resulting reduction in the total height a greater compatibility with current cases has been achieved.

Thus we demonstrate once again that the suggestions from the fan base and constructive criticism are taken seriously. The revised design of the IB-E ensures that the top PCIe slot on ATX motherboards is no longer blocked by the heatsink. This is a point of criticism frequently expressed by testers and users when using the predecessor.

Silver Arrow IB-E - „Best overall package in the Dual-Tower-Field“

True to our motto "innovated - not imitated" we present with the Silver Arrow IB-E the new flagship of our cooler series. The Silver Arrow IB-E is the successor to one of the world's most powerful twin tower coolers. The cooler has been revised in accordance with current customer requirements and makes excessive use of innovative new features to improve an already excellent product even further.
