Thermalright AK120 MINI

Thermalright Just released a new cooler, which is currently the smallest 120mm single tower on the market at 135mm tall. Should come in around 30USD.

That's a really nice design on the tower. 5 heatpipes (I assume 6mm), tight fin array. I have a feeling this is going to give the 212EVO fanboys fits.

I'm interested to see how the fan does. While the TY-143 and 147 series are among my favorite 140mm fans, Thermalright's 120mm offerings have always disappointed me (but are still far better than CM's fans included on their coolers).

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

Yep, this definitely looks like it has one of their lesser fans. But its probably fair enough for the class its in.

They also have the Silver Arrow 130, which covers the more premium segment of tiny 120mm fanned coolers. Its even shorter at (H)130mm(duh), as well. I wouldn't be surprised if the fan on that one is a bit nicer.

Seems like Thermalright is going to have a very productive year between this, the black eagle, and the frost spirit. Now they just need to actually release their products. Hopefully we will see them sometime early summer. Im personally release curious how the frost spirit will perform

Wouldn't this particular cooler benefit from using a single NF-A12x25-PWM fan?

No idea tbh, not a single review out yet. But I don't think it would make much sense.

First of all this cooler requires round frame 120mm fans, so it wouldn't fit without some tweaks. Second its a $30 cooler... slapping a $30 fan to it kinda defeats the purpose of a budget cooler. You're probably better off just spending $60 on a better cooler, like the even smaller Silver Arrow 130.

Not easy to get, when you're living here in Convict Town.

Sometimes you have to get what you can, then apply some radical coupling of another fan to help boost any cooling performance.

Would love to buy a Silver Arrow 130, if only it appeared on Flebay.....

Thermalright coolers, especially the new ones, are kind of a pain to get anywhere outside of Asia atm, the SA 130 never came to europe either as far as I'm aware. Most of the ones I've seen came through taobao.

Hopefully they can get their supply chain back on point after this whole covid ordeal is over.

Edit: removed image as it was already posted.

Wish we could find dimensional drawings. I'm guessing a standard 120mm fan could be used without much trouble.

New Thermalright fan clips are way better than they used to be.

Here are specs in English without Asian text:
