Thermalright Introduces the Le Grand Macho RT CPU Cooler

Admin Press Release Topics 212

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.

Included are our universal mounting kit that supports Intel LGA775/1156/1366/1155/2011/1150/2011-3/1151 and AMD AM2(+)/AM3(+)/FM1/FM2(+), the Chill Factor 3 thermal compound in a handy 2 gram syringe for multiple use, and our famous Screwdriver.

Also available in stores now are the TY 127 – for users who want to install a second fan on their cooler – as well as the TY 141SV, a slightly upgraded version of the TY 141. Both fans make use of side vents, just like the TY 147 B, in order to reduce the noise of the fan even further. At 14 – 21 dB(A) the TY 141 SV is even more silent than its predecessor.

For fans of retro coolers the original HR-02 is now available again. The cooler, which has been introduced in 2010 for the first time, was the inspiration for our Macho cooler and is still one of the most powerful coolers of its kind. The cooler comes with the VX-II bolt-through kit included, which can be used to mount the HR-02 on all current Intel- and AMD-CPUs. Our screwdriver and the Chill Factor III thermal compound are included as well.

All coolers are now available in stores. The MSRP of the Le Grand Macho RT is 69.99€, that of the TY 127 is 8.99€ and finally the MSRP for the TY 141SV is set at 15.99€. The HR-02 is available for 54.99€, however the quantity is limited, so we advise you to order soon, before they are gone again.
