About us      


Since the establishment of the brand in 2001, Thermalright has been dedicated to engineering professional computer cooling solutions for more than a decade. We have set many standards in the cooling industry which are still widely implemented today, and have been the leading brand that others tend to follow and imitate. Quality and performance are the very goals Thermalright pursues. By improving product details and consumer experiences, we provide products that stand out in both quality and performance to our users. Look at what Thermalright achieved in the past decade; are you familiar with all our achievements?

SK6 /
2001

Copper Heatsink & Fan Clip. Do you know where they came from?

In 2001, Thermalright introduced the first copper heatsink while other brands were still manufacturing with aluminum materials. Thermalright’s copper heatsinks were compatible with 60mm fans, and were mounted with fan clips. This innovative mounting solution gave users the option to choose from a wider selection of fans to mount.

Installing an 80 x 38mm fan. Wasn't that a crazy idea back then?

These heatsinks, like the SK6, were entirely made of copper, but were capable of mounting an 8cm 38mm thick fan.

Unleashing heat-pipe performance

SP-94 97 has always been an unforgettable product to overclockers.
Although there were already a few heat-pipe solutions in the market at the time, none of them took advantage of the heat-pipe performance to the limit.
It was after the announcement of SP-94 97 when heat-pipe performance was truly unleashed.

 

XP120 /
2004

12cm fan on heatsinks!

XP120, a super large heatsink that could mount 12cm fans, was our ultimate masterpiece.
At that time, many motherboards were not compatible with this gigantic cooler.
We therefore received requests from motherboard manufacturers for the specifications of this heatsink,
which they later used as reference when redesigning their motherboards to achieve better compatibility with the XP120.
It was then we realized that overclockers’ desire for performance is unstoppable!

 

HR 01 /
2005

At this time, the market started to split into two major groups of users, one group seeking performance

while the other seeking silent cooling solutions. HR-01 was designed for the latter group; with a fan duct as an accessory, users could use the heatsink without a fan.
Patented pinched heatsink fins increased the contact area.
The total height of the heatsink was 16cm, a size that could fit into all tower cases, and this dimension became a standard followed by other cooler manufacturers even today.

 
 

Ultra 120 Extreme / 2006

The legendary convexed-base heatsink

This was the year our Ultra120eXtreme was announced, featuring a copper base that was no longer manufactured as a flat surface, but especially engineered as a convex base with the precise curvature carefully calculated by our engineers. When the U120E first hit the market, the performance was a stunning 10 degrees Celsius less than all its competitors, but such engineering methods were also criticized by many competing firms. Just like our other innovations, eventually the competition gave in. Now check out your heatsink and see if the base is flat!

 
 

Thermalright has always been devoted in seeking all possible methods to maximize our coolers’ quality and performance, even if it takes three months to increase the performance by a mere 1 degree difference. It is our belief that only through persistence could we gain our users’ trust and support!
