It comes with pre-applied TIM as well as a small tube of Chill Factor 3 TIM,

is there something specific about the base or is this just one of their other coolers that fits the AM4 socket mount.

While Thermalright has several aluminum base instead of all copper and their direct contact heatpipe aluminum bases have mounting flanges on them, but I think this is only aluminum base encompasing heatpipes with mounting tabs.

The origin of this design was many years go when HR-01(no offset base) and HR-02, then bigger HR-22 (became Le Grand Macho). HR-02 became Macho and smaller Macho 120 before evolving into Macho Zero, Macho 120 SBM, HR-02 Macho PCGH, Macho Rev.A, Macho X2, Macho Black, Macho Direct, etc. This is just the latest evolution of HR-02.

It is an extremely good design. I think Thermalright has sold more of these HR-02/HR-22 base design than any other cooler .. mostly because line as been in production for so many years.

I love Thermalright coolers.....but between the orange and the TY143, they really need some help choosing colors.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Certainly not LGM to me, this seems to be yet another HR-02 and there have been many variants of that one.

They already have all the dimensions and details on their product pages Doyll.

Plus it is not black version it's a brown version. Macho Rev.B is black. It's a brown and orange variant of Macho Rev.B, even my Rev.A is same except cosmetic details of base width and mounting. Seems they finally got rid of the put over plate for which one needs 3 hands to mount the cooler easily. Finally it's integrated into base. On the other hand they omit parts that may be necessary/useful for mounting on other platforms than AM4. So while this mounting update is welcome the omission of parts that Rev.B and .A come with is not welcome.
At least you get the screw driver, the best thing about this cooler LOL

I'm adding more detail, like on top view showing the base to CPU contact area in top view.

Yeah, fixed bracket makes it much easier to install. They've done that with several other Macho and TRUE Spirit coolers the last few years.

I have the gun metal/dark pewter colored one here. It's more black than brown., but yeah, it s of off shade.

Pretty cool, I currently have a Macho Rev.B on my Ryzen system, wonder how much better this will be.

I was pretty confused about that extra 13mm when I first saw the cooler on the product page, it really wasn't clear on their pictures that it was the longer mounting system on the base, maybe the should just use your technical drawings instead.

Assuming your Macho base is covering the area of IHS over Ryzen chips I wouldn't think cooling would be any different.

Yeah, giving cooler size including mounting tabs on base is confusing. They could have added 'including mounting tab on base' but ...

Definitely easier to mount.

I want one that has better fan clips that allow for height adjustment.

Any ideas where to buy the grey version? It's somewhat alarming they don't intend to include Intel support. They should pass the savings in materials to the consumer.

Considering the Macho Rev B managed to match the Scythe Mugen 5 more or less on Ryzen 1st gen I'd be interested in how well this one does since it's more or less a Ryzen logo Macho Rev B.
