Accessories and Documentation


Thermalright has always sent their goodies in sealed bags to ensure the parts count is always right, and it is easy to tell where everything is. Here we have the universal backplate and nylon isolation material for it. In the middle are all of the screws, standoffs, and nuts needed to mount the cooler, and another bag with an LGA pre-load spacer, AMD, and Intel washers, and black tubing used to isolate the fan from the fins. Then, at the bottom, we see the packet of Chill Factor thermal paste, enough for a few mounts.

In a larger bag, free of the rest of the hardware, we found the universal top plate portion of the mounting hardware. The plate that straddles the base of the cooler and mounts to the plate to its left, and four wire fan mounting clips covers all of the hardware. To help put it all together, Thermalright supplied the Macho 120 SBM with a long Phillip's head screwdriver, which is long enough to go through the entire coolers fin stack.

The manual supplied with this cooler is as good as it gets. A full parts list, detailed and well-written instructions, along with renderings of each step, you have everything you need to know. At the back of this manual is a bit about the warranty coverage and site information. If you do have an issue, all of the information is at hand. With this little booklet, even the greenest of builders will have no issues mounting this cooler to a compatible socket.

After a year of gaming, Chad caught the OC bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and Chad has had many air and water setups. With a few years of abusing computer parts, he decided to take his chances and try to get a review job. As an avid overclocker, Chad is always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals.
