aside from the main talking point of being all copper, it's not that special. low profile and uses a 15mm 90mm fan.

could be a blessing for the SFF crowd though!

edit - I Googled to see if I could find weight and stumbled upon a slightly larger all copper model running the odd sized 100mm fan. it's under a lb in weight, so the 90mm variant should be even less:

Looks pretty similar to the low profile Noctua that I use in most of my things lately.

I love those style of coolers, because they also help cool the MOSFET's and other VRM components on the MB as well due to the Airflow path.

You mean your Noctua looks similar? I say that because Thermalright has been around about 4-5 years longer. This cooler here is an old design revamped.

TR left North American market a while back I think? I don't see their products for sale up here much anymore.

But yeah, the Noctua I use is this: https://noctua.at/en/products/cpu-cooler-retail/nh-l9i. The mounting system looks very similar as well as the overall footprint, though the TR is taller.

it's a sad thing that TR doesn't have a presence in the NA market anymore...not sure I understand why. sure it's a tight market and there's a lot of competition, but in the Athlon XP / P4 days, they were the very best. I had some 92mm tower of theirs on my 2500+ ye olde days of far past.

It's probably any number of reasons. I always loved their Air Cooling Monsters, but yeah Downdraft has been my go to for a while because I found there was a lot of Airflow lost or blocked using the big Towers on some cases. It got mitigated a bit when cases started having top mounted fan arrangements though.
Still, for my mATX and ITX builds they were unmatched in their potential.

Ahhh memories of the good ole T.R.U.E., of which I had at least two. I also still have a ThermalRight Venomous X in a box somewhere around here, socket 1366 I think? Quality gear at the time.
