Thermalright Unveils Macho Direct, the Company’s First HDT CPU Cooler
Thermalright has introduced their new effective cooling solution targeted at the budget segment. Based on the proven Macho-Design, the Macho Direct is the company’s first Heatpipe Direct Touch (HDT) cooler, about which Thermalright is confident would reach the top of the HDT-cooler charts thanks to its unique conception.
The Macho Direct retains its successful concept of the powerful heatsink aligned to the rear, along with featuring a special design aluminum cooling fins that are optimized for low running fans while delivering a very low air resistance. Further, several openings counteract the accumulation of air between the cooling fins, thus ensuring an optimum air exchange.
One of the distinguished features of the Macho Direct is its specially designed, concave formed heat pipes which allow for an effective exchange from the CPU. This patented design helps the cooler achieve a cooling capacity that Thermalright claims to be “outstanding for an HDT cooler.”
The cooler packs a TY 140 Black PWM-fan with a low-wearing “Enhanced Hyper-Flow Bearing.” The black fan runs at a speed range between 300 to 1300 rpm, coupled with a relatively silent noise level from 15 to 21 dB(a) that’s almost inaudible while operating.
Further, the Macho Direct is 4mm less in height than the Macho Rev. B again thanks to the direct touch heatpipe design. That allows it to be easily installed in even more cases. The weight of the cooler with a fan mounted comes down by 820g.
The Thermalright Macho Direct costs around 36.99 Euro, including tax.
