The name is a bit.. I remember someone somewhere on the internet saying that in french it means the tall guy
and another one commenting big fat cooler
would've been better
(to which I agree)
Also the marketing on the box. Innovated, not imitated.
inb4 Macho Rev.C, El Gigante Macho LE and so on
But jokes aside, this is an amazing cooler judging from the reviews.
I think Thermalright has nailed it.
I'm interested in buying one to replace my current HR-02 Macho Rev.A.
Sure what I already have can handle my 3770K at it's OC, no worries, but I caught the upgrade itch.
Here in Finland this LGM costs 65€. For comparison HR-22 is 80€, NH-D15 90€.
I might grab the 140mm fan duct and play around with it, only 6€ and looks nicer (it's black instead of red or yellow) than a MacGyver solution would.
That is if the thing even fits between the rear fan and the LGM. With my current Macho it should fit, I think. Maybe I'll measure the distance and ask TR what's the min distance for the duct to fit..
Here's a review list (incl i2hard.ru doyll already linked)
Few results I picked from those reviews.

XtremeSystems. Xeon E5-2687W

(?), OC [email protected]
Case used was CM Silencio Pure 650 according to the test system list yet pictures show it on a test bench. If inside the case, fan speeds/amount? If stock fans then it's [email protected]
2x front/1x rear.
Ambient? Don't think these are delta's, with 20C ambient the Venom would be cooking the Xeon's hottest cores above 100C. Also he says "average of four cores". Uhm, it's a octa core, did he record the hottest cores or is that just a typo? I don't know and not gonna bother asking.
He also used the Venomous X BTK II bolt thru kit instead of the TRUE Universal that comes with it. I have no idea why. (edit: probably because he tested the HR-22 before)LGM with TY-147A
Tomshardware. i7-5930K stock. I don't know what the case is or amount of fans. Previously Kai has used CM Storm Stryker and it has 2x12cm front, 1x14cm rear and 1x20cm top out of the box. In the review he says the speeds for only front and rear fans.
So I'm going to assume the 200cm top fan wasn't used but the others were.. Max rpm is front/rear ~1150-1200rpm/1050-1150rpm.
These are delta's, ambient was according to review 23C.
Overclockers.ru. i7-5960X stock [email protected]
.96V or [email protected]
This is of course on a test bench but anyway..
Passive testing/comparison to Macho Zero was done with a TY-141 placed 35mm away from them @450rpm to simulate case airflow (sure, w/e) and 4Ghz testing was done with a NF-A15 PWM.
* in there implies "alternative fan was used" which I think for all is the NF-A15 PWM (retail version), hence the NH-D15S not having a * next to it since it comes with it (well the 1500rpm version..) and is not an alternative fan for it.
