Thermalright Readies Le Grand Macho Passive Cooler

Thermalright decided to gladden all devotees of ultra-quiet PC systems by designing an efficient passive cooler – Le Grand Macho. This is a conventional tower cooler, supporting new and outdated CPUs of up to 95 W TDP. Hence, the greenhorn is compatible with Intel LGA 775/115x/1366/2011/2011-3 as well as AMD FM2/FM2+/FM1/AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+ platforms.

Initially, Thermalright Le Grand Macho is void of any fan; nonetheless, its framework presupposes the installation of one or two high-efficiency fans (120/140 mm), which are able to cope with 300-watt CPUs.

The cooler consists of a nickel-plated base, seven heatpipes and a voluminous aluminum heatsink with 35 fins. The latter come with perforations which counteract air between the plates with low air resistance. The base features a convex-shaped contact surface (that optimizes cooling efficiency) and is perfectly polished. Seven 6-mm heatpipes are solidly integrated into the base, ensuring ideal heat dissipation.
