Intel Branding Part I
Intel Branding Part I
Date Issued: 1st Jul 2009

Intel’s been on a mission of late. That mission revolves around grouping and standardising key technologies under various banners that are designed to ensure hardware compatibility and consumer ease of use. We’ll take a closer look at three such technologies that fall under the headings of Centrino, Viiv, and vPro, respectively.

Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

Date Issued: 14th Jun 2008

There’s been a lot of hype about Intel’s Core 2 recently, even since they launched Core in fact. Words like Conroe, Badaxe and Allendale have been flying around. The bottom line is that Core 2 is the name of Intel’s latest line of CPUs, based on a new micro-architecture, designed for speed and efficiency.

Thermalright Macho Rev.B Intel/AMD CPU Cooler with Enlarged Copper Base + Ultra Low Noise TY-147A PWM Fan is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big fat and silent cooler for AM4 I bought this cooler for a Ryzen 5 1600X. The idle temperature with this cooler is around 30°C. Despite the description on the website doesn't say, the cooler I received actually supports AM4 out of the box, without the need to ask Thermalright for an AM4 kit. The only problem was that I had to manually punch the plastic that goes over the plate with a screwdriver because it was missing the 4 AM4 holes. But the plate actually has the holes, so it was relatively simple to fix. I found the mounting of the fan to the cooler a little complicated. The cooler comes with some thermal paste. It is not fancy but it does the job. The fan is quite silent and it's PWM so it will change speed depending on the CPU temperature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective Cooler Easy to install, point to note is with the AMD AM3+ socket fitting for the top plate, the holding bolts do not locate into any of the pre-drilled holes, but sit around the edge of the plate located by half round recesses along the edge of the top plate. Be advised, this heat sink is very big, check the dimensions before you buy. The heat sink itself is very effective, my FX-9370 runs at 7 - 15 @ 1.4 ghz, and 30 - 50 @ 4.4 ghz.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent cooler Very pleased with this purchase, best cooler I've used personally. Keeps my pc at least 10c cooler at idle, and 12c-15c cooler while gaming :) Big thumbs up ! Highly recommended in air cooled category.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great cooler from Thermalright I've always been a massive fan of Thermalright coolers so I'm a bit biased. However 29 degrees at Idle on a stock I5 6600k and 41 degrees under load is pretty amazing I have to say.... I'm using mine in a Corsair 600Q with the extra 140mm fan added in. So it is in a high airflow environment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great engineered cooler although tall I bought this cooler because I wanted a cooler that was big enough that I could run passively but if needs be could run it with a fan and so far it runs so well without the fan that I havent even used the fan yet. The only thing I would say is that it is very tall and just fits into my case and the fan sits up slightly higher so make sure you measure your case first before deciding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cooler Bought this as part of a system upgrade to Skylake and I am seriously impressed with it. It keeps my 6600k @ 4.8Ghz at around 20c idle and never over 60c full load all while running whisper quiet with 2 fans in push/pull. Note that the cooler only comes with one fan though but does include fan clips to add your own second fan. Awesome product. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SOME MACHO TEST FIGURES Okay first the rig i installed this cooler into : - Wizard case with 200 mm side cooling fan. Asustek P5q Pro MB. Xeon X5470 CPU. [ running at 11% overclock and only 1.18 volts ] Thermalright Macho rev B Gigabyte gtx 660 OC graphics. OCZ ZS 650 PSU In a room about 27 deg Running on desktop duties : - CPU 29 - 30 deg MB 32 - 33 deg Running normal games duties : - CPU - 33 - 35 deg MB - 38 - 39 deg Running a full stress test : - CPU - 41 - 44 deg MB - 49 - 50 deg The case and MB are 6 years old, the psu is 3 years old, the graphics card is 3 years old [ bought recently secondhand ]. The CPU is 6 year old, bought recently as new " old stock " [ converted from socket 771 ]. The system was revamped to give extended life to an old but able system, originally Q8200 [ 12% overclock and stock 1.32 volts ]. I'm still running XP but will shortly upgrade, running XP in a virtual partition, the real reason for CPU upgrade as Q8200 isn't enabled for this. I've been an electronics amateur and professional for 45 years and been building PC's for 20 years and after trying just about all combinations of cooling you could think of i use a simple formula for maximum bang for buck cooling. Use the biggest fan you can cram in the side of the case blowing on the MB " DON'T " use extract fans,so maintaining positive pressure in the case, but cut extra vents as necessary.Get the biggest meanest heatpipe cooler that will fit into the case, thats the MACHO ! Notes : - My case has a 200 mm wide chassis, the minimum width i would recomend for this cooler [ and when i say 200 mm chassis i mean it, not 200 mm width to include side panel bulges !!! ] as i had to transfer the big side fan from the inside to the outside of the case ! The Xeon X5470 is faster, more stable and more efficient than the fastest Core 2 extreme, as it was a " from the top of bin chip " for high end server use but can generate more heat, reason for the MACHO ! As a reference the Q8200 with a lesser 3 heatpipe cooler, 6 years old, ran CPU about 2 deg cooler in desktop duties and about 3 deg hotter in games. The graphics card runs at - 30 deg desktop - up to 47 deg games, courtesy of the side fan ! Recovery time for CPU to drop from games to desktop temp - 80% within 10 secs - 100% within 45 secs, i think you'll agree, not shabby ! All temps checked externally at multiple points with calibrated laser sensor and found to be + - 1 deg. MB temp = Northbridge temp, this is greatly relieved by the downdraught 200 mm fan !! I give the Macho 11/10 for performance, quality and robustness the mounting system takes " ALL " the strain from the CPU socket but personally i'd use Arctic Silver 5 for mounting. Review by Joe
