Thermalright Macho Rev.A review

16 November 2012
  • Conclusion: In many regards, the Macho Rev. A is similar to the CNPS14X. Noise levels with both are pleasingly quiet, and the delta T results achieved by both were only 1°C apart in both Intel tests (once again the Macho Rev. A could not be mounted to our AMD system).

  • Summary: The Thermalright HR-02 Macho was able to passively cool our mildly overclocked Sandy Bridge quad core processor with very little case airflow, though the temperatures were rather high as one would expect; we wouldn't attempt it with anything more demanding like a Bulldozer , Nehalem or Sandy Bridge...

Thermalright HR-02 Macho Super-Cooler Review

X-bit labs
5 October 2011
  • Summary: It looks like Thermalright decided to leave all of their competitors without any revenues, because their new HR-02 Macho cooler offers unprecedented combination of cooling efficiency and price, which is unreachable for all other manufacturers of processor coolers.

Thermalright Macho HR-02 CPU Cooler

Benchmark Reviews
25 August 2011
  • Conclusion: Please remember that these test results reflect our experience with each cooler on a specific motherboard, with a specific processor, BIOS revision, BCLK and voltage settings, and test programs. The results of this test cannot be directly compared to other tests since many factors will have changed.
  • Pros: Excellent performance for the price, Offset design clears memory sockets, Quiet, PWM-controlled fan
  • Cons: Requires special screwdriver to easily mount on a motherboard inside a case, No way to easily store unused mounting bits, Dramatic performance difference depending on orientation, but no recommended orientation in docs, Only one set of fan clips included

Thermalright HR-02 Macho CPU Air Cooler Review

26 July 2011
  • Summary: Thermalright is a long time tried and true brand here at [H]. Very rarely have we seen a product from Thermalright that did not deliver a solid product to enthusiasts in one way or another. The new Macho aims to hit the value, quality, and performance segments...all at the same time.

  • Summary: The thermal performance of this cooler speaks for itself; even with sub-optimal alignment, it produced very good temperatures for such a power-hungry CPU. The quality of the included accessories is for the most part quite good, but the lack of included mounting kit for AMD boards is disappointing.

Thermalright HR-02 CPU cooler review

The Guru of 3D
7 September 2010
  • Summary: It's hard to be disappointed with Thermalright products and well, you surely will not be disappointed by the HR-02. Throughout the installation we already had that weird 6th sense that we had something distinctive in our hands, and it is exactly that, the HR-02 is distinctive.
