New Thermalright HR-02 Macho Rev. B CPU Cooler Announced

/ 2 years ago


TR Macho 1Thermalright originally released their HR-02 Macho semi-passive CPU cooler back in 2011 and it has harvested a lot of rewards and praise since then and now Thermalright is ready with an updated version, the Rev. B model.

The new version features an enlarged nickel-plated and polished base that measures 53 x 40mm. This combined with the six high-powered nickel-plated heat pipes that are said to make it able to cool up to the latest generation i7 CPUs with 8 cores.

The heatsink itself is silver nickel-plated and has a black anodized top fin, while the rest of the fins are low resistance aluminium to allow for maximum air-penetration; perfect for low-speed fans. Like the previous model, this one is also aligned to the rear to minimize possible conflict with larger memory modules.

Thermalright also improved upon the fan used and the TY 147 PWN fan with torpedo blades and enhanced hyper-flow bearings have been used. The minimum RPM has been reduced from 900 to just 300 RPM while the maximum speed stays at 1300 RPM. The fan generates a maximum of 21dBa which still is pretty much silent. Airflow ranges from 28.7 to 125 m³/h depending on running speed.

The new HR-02 Macho Rev. B weighs 880 grams and measures 150 x 129 x 162mm with the fan mounted. It should be available in stores now for an MSRP of 42.99 Euro with 19% VAT.
