Thermalright has a new release! Le GRAND MACHO is similar to the HR-22 with 1 less heatpipe and a different base.



Didn't know they were officially out. thumb.gif
Le GRAND MACHO




Le GRAND MACHO has 7x 6mm heat pipes with a different base to accommodate them, but has same size fin pack as HR-22 with 8x heatpipes. The new base sets the fin pack back 3.5mm more than HR-22 fin pack. This means the distance from center CPU to front of fin pack is 22mm (HR-22 is 25.5mm). This means a fan like the TY-147A (26.5mm) on the front is only 48.5mm from center CPU .. no clearance issues fwith RAM!!


Edit: updated dimensional drawings Verified by Thermalright and used by Thermalright.com

Thermalright posted some of their test results with Le Grand Macho.
Better cooling passively than new Intel TS15A at full speed.


Way better than NoFan CR-95C

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 biggrin.gif (to which I agree)
Also the marketing on the box. Innovated, not imitated.

inb4 Macho Rev.C, El Gigante Macho LE and so on biggrin.gif

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. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
XtremeSystems. Xeon E5-2687W, 8c16t [email protected](?), 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.
C01-Thermalright-Le-Grand-Macho-temp-max-rpm.png
C02-Thermalright-Le-Grand-Macho-temp-800-rpm.png

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.

Le%20Grand%20Macho_overclockersRU.png
* 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.

Yeah, I don't. Distrust, verify and still be suspicious works quite well biggrin.gif But it does look promising.
I'll post again when I buy it but it's gonna be a while though. I've more pressing matters right now than some silly cooler which is totally just a thing I want, not what I need. biggrin.gif
