Heartburn Soul Runner Wind Protector Guardian Angel The TRUE Spirit 140 Direct

The TS-140 Direct optimized for use on LGA1151 / Skylake CPUs. A Thermalright LGA1151 Spacer is included, and we are surprised by that 1.3V Overclocking the TS-140 Direct has heat dissipation that is only 1c warmer than Silver Arrow IBE. The TS-140 Direct cools as well and better than most CLC water coolers.

Why are we saying that? Heartburn Soul Runner Wind Protector Guardian Angel? Because the True Spirit 140 Direct is now transformed back to the old school approach to make it with high quality of performance. The CPU is like a heart of a core of the computer, so attached to the soul of Thermalright power to maintain core together. Wind protector, ran out of a primitive style for everyone’s heart’s core. Guardian Angel is suited for everyone can wear it, that’s why we don’t raise the price we keep it quality up. We just want everyone can have their cooling way to make it that soul! We are ready to ThermalRight your PC Cooler!

Heat sink increase the compatible of ITX MB & LGA 2011, in order to ensure that even the RAM modules increase high heat to radiator but the cooling still fit in. Our new Aluminum heat sinks with True Spirit designs to accelerate airflow to increase the efficiency of the cooling fan.

2007 start with the TS series, Thermalright continues increased TRUE Spirit direct HDT (heat pipe direct touch) the CPU heat sink. TS direct, we have taken the famous TRUE Spirit designs to the next level with a large cooling capacity for the players. TRUE Spirit silent cooler using TY-140 Black fan (TY-140 series proven fan) were optimized at an attractive price provides excellent thermal performance.

TRUE Spirit use the principle of Heat pipe direct touch. High performance with special 5 heat pipe with 6 mm heat processor provides effective heat dissipation. The bottom of heat pipe using our mature technique convex design. Combine the Patent concave and convex shape of the contact surface of the heat pipe, heat pipe is set slightly lower than the cooler base that combination gives the TRUE Spirit excellent thermal performance.

Skilled Technology TRUE Spirit Aluminum fin design allows for very low air flow resistance. Cooling fins additional perforations helps to accelerate the flow stream between the fins to improved the efficiency and reduce the temperature.

TY-140 Black included (PWM) fan Macho direct optimization. At 300 RPM idle speed with 16.9 CFM and a maximum 1300 RPM speed with 73.6 CFM air flow with a very quiet operation even at higher speeds. TY-140 Black use our proven low-wear “Hyper- flow enhanced bearing.”

This proven design incorporates with a larger traditional fan diameter 140 mm with conventional fan mounting points feature 120 mm fans. The fan is firmly fixed to the newest designs include pads which provided heat sink fan bracket to the excellence of the performance.

Including Macho direct universal mounting kit supports all current Intel and AMD sockets (Intel LGA 775/1150/1151/1155/1156/1366/2011 / 2011-3 and AMD AM2 / AM2+ / AM3 / AM3+ / FM1 / FM2 / FM2+).


The package also included our most superior popular Thermalright Chill Factor thermal paste. Please read and pay close attention to the instructions in how to apply thermal paste. The first HDT cooler, Thermalright TS releases the immediate innovative again. In General “pea” does not meet our HDT base design work.

Thermalright’s All Heatsinks upgrade new package with LGA1151 Spacer solves Intel Skylake

Thermalright’s All Heatsinks upgrade new package with LGA1151 Spacer solves Intel Skylake
Thermalright’s all series of Heatsinks upgrade new package of the accessory which include the LGA1151 Spacer. That could proprietary support plate for Intel Skylake processors.

After seeing the photos and reports of Skylake PCB deformation on internet, Thermalright decided to address the issue. It appears the LGA1151 may have some potential problems dealing with the mounting pressure and / or weight of heavier aftermarket coolers (over 500g as specified in Intel LGA1150 socket Application Guide). In our endeavour for excellence Thermalright is trying to lower the possibility of this happening by developing a spacer to fill the open area between the load plate and PCB to hold it tightly in place. The spacer fits onto CPU with a 0.5mm raised surface around the IHS fitting snugly on CPU PCB when load plate is latched down.

As you can see the spacer has a 0.7mm taper from back to front with a 0.5mm raised area where it fits around the IHS. The taper matches the slope of the socket load plate. Thick edge of taper goes toward load plate hinge. When the load plate is latched and presses on mounting points of IHS, it also presses on Thermalright 1151 spacer. This holds the CPU PCB firmly in plate. Making it harder for it to deform and cause problems.

Thermalright LGA1151 Support Spacers will be available free of charge at most of Thermalright resellers by March 15th, 2016 for users buying a Thermalright cooler. Please consult with our resellers for availability before you place an order. If you already have a Thermalright cooler and are moving it to Skylake CPU, just show your Skylake proof of purchase to one of our retailers. Of course if this is done online, you will have to pay the postage costs.

Thermalright’s New Macho Direct HDT Cooler

Thermalright’s New Macho Direct HDT Cooler

Continuing on with the HR series of coolers that started way back in 2005 and has evolved into the Macho coolers, Thermalright now adds the Macho Direct HDT (Direct Heatpipe Direct Touch) CPU-Cooler. With the Macho Direct we have taken the well-known HR-02 / Macho design to a new level, giving price conscious users great cooling on a budget. This silence optimized cooler using the TY-140 Black fan (from the TY-140 series of time proven fans) offers exceptional cooling performance at an attractive price.

The original concepts of the Macho have been maintained. The heat sink is aligned to the rear of the PC case to ensure that even ram modules with high-rising heat spreaders will fit. The aluminum cooling fins use our proven design to counteract air accumulation between the cooling fins.

The Macho Direct makes use of the Heatpipe Direct Touch principle. Five high-performance 6 mm heatpipes provide efficient dissipation of processor heat. The bottoms of the heatpipes use our proven convex form. The patented convex shape of the heatpipe contact surface combined with the heatpipes setting slightly below the cooler base gives the Macho Direct outstanding cooling performance.

The HDT heatpipes setting lower means the Macho Direct is 4 mm shorter in height than other Machos. This allows it to fit into cases where the “normal” Macho is too tall.

The proven design of Macho aluminum fins allows very low airflow resistance. The additional perforation of the cooling fins helps eliminate heat buildup between the individual fins increasing efficiency and reducing temperatures.

The included TY-140 Black (PWM) fan is optimized for the Macho Direct. With an idle speed of 300 rpm with 16.9 cfm and a top speed of 1,300 rpm with 73.6 cfm, the fan moves lots of air and runs exceptionally quiet, even at higher speeds. The TY-140 Black uses our proven low-wear “Enhanced Hyper-Flow Bearing”.

This proven design combines the features of conventional 120 mm fan mounting points with the larger fan diameter of conventional 140 mm fans. The fan is fitted securely to the heatsink with the included, revised fan brackets with specially designed anti-vibration pads to give unsurpassed performance.

The universal mounting kit included with the Macho Direct supports all current Intel- and AMD sockets (Intel LGA1156/1155/2011/1150/2011-3/1151 and AMD AM2/AM2+/AM3/FM1/FM2/FM2+).

Also included in the package is our popular Thermalright magnetic tip Screwdriver and our excellent Thermalright Chill Factor thermal paste.

Please read and closely follow the instructions in the manual on how to apply the thermal paste. The Thermalright show innovation again with release of its first HDT cooler, Macho Direct. usual “pea” method does not work with our HDT base design.

Thermalright added top of the line semi-passive heat-sink, Le GRAND MACHO.

Thermalright added top of the line semi-passive heat-sink, Le GRAND MACHO.

Thermalright long a major player in the CPU cooling market have always been intrigued with the idea of semi-passive and even passive cooling in a computer. After our previous presentation of using a fan duct along with our Macho heatsinks, Thermalright yet another approach by making a slightly larger Macho that will cool your computers without a fan or even the necessity of a fan duct.

To clear any doubts of compatibility issues with gigantic heatsinks in general, we have prepared photos showing LGM will clear VGA card as well as tall memory modules.

As average end users who care about the capability to be able to replace stock heatsinks (Intel TSA15), we have also prepared test data to show, when the rear system fan is on, LGM without a fan performs as good as a TSA with its 2500rpm fan in full speed, and this in on a hot 6700K 1151 processor!

In short, LGM is good for average users who prefer a quiet operating environment, 24/7, especially those of you who are not happy with the noise of their computer at home, dorm room, or in an office, it’s never too late to switch to Thermalright’s new LGM, as it is also, backward compatible to earlier Intel or AMD platforms such as Intel 1155/1155/1366/2011 or AMD AM2/AM3.

For aggressive friends, who may do a little overclocking and want to include a fan later on, you can add our TY-147A fan which is also available in retail or any 120mm fan. Our performance tests show the LGM with fan is only 2C shy of our Silver Arrow model. Not too shabby at all, considering the Silver Arrow is still leading the twin tower cooler market since its introduction in 2009!
