When the first test results begun to come in i was quite surprised to see that the AXP-100 managed to surpass the Noctua NH-L9i by a quite large percentage without producing more noise. However just by looking at both solutions the performance part was...

Pitting the AXP-100 up against competition nearly 3 times its size might seem unfair at first. The numbers may appear to be against the AXP in both CPU cooling graphs but in actuality it is quite the contrary. Sure the larger coolers may perform that...

Demand for small yet powerful systems has gone up in recent years as the viability of owning mini-ITX and HTPCs with powerful CPUs has also increased. However, with this comes a need to dissipate lots of heat from a tiny space, preferably with minimum...

Thermalright has proven once again that it is a company that knows what it's doing when it comes to cooling CPUs. With the AXP-100, it's created a cooler that can comfortably cope with an overclocked LGA1155 CPU (a likely candidate for HTPC and...

Thermalright sent us four CPU coolers that have been out for a while, but that we did not have the opportunity to test earlier. We compare the True Spirit 120 Rev. A, True Spirit 140, AXP-100 and Silver Arrow SB-E Special Edition with 44 other CPU...

With the AXP-100, Thermalright has a promising cooler for HTPC's or small form factor desktop PCs in its portfolio. Already at a first glance it shines with a very good build quality and no less than six heatpipes. We're already curious how this thing is...

All said and done, the Thermalright AXP-100 did an excellent job of maintaining a respectable level of temperature on the A10-5800K APU which has a rated TDP of 100W. Obviously most processors suitable for HTPCs will have a far lower TDP than our...

The Thermalright AXP-100 performed exceptionally well for a low profile CPU cooler. Even being only 2.28 inches (58 mm) tall with its stock fan, it outperformed all the low profile coolers and even some big tower coolers we tested. Besides that, the...

The AXP-100 is a highly versatile and compact heatsink designed for small systems. It can be installed with or without the backplate, in case there are large components on the back of the motherboard. Larger fans with 120 mm mounting hole spacing can...

The current crop of mini-ITX mobos, with their full-spec desktop chipsets, are just the job for building a powerful HTPC. There's a multitude of small, compact cases around to build them into, but there is a snag - how do you keep the CPU cool in a...

To be honest, once I opened the box and saw the way the cooler was packaged, I thought to myself, this is nice, and more manufacturers should do this. Then as I dug the cooler out of the inner packaging and got to looking at it, I realized that this...

Which brings me today's product. For anyone who has ever put together a HTPC or small form factor PC you know the difficulty in finding an aftermarket cooler that is small yet powerful. When space is at a premium I found myself sticking with the stock...

Hersteller Thermalright hat beim neuen AXP-100 Muscle nicht zu viel versprochen. Der preislich attraktiv gestaltete Top-Blow-Kühler bietet eine sehr gute Leistung, geringe Lautstärke und eignet sich dank kompakter Bauweise auch für kleine Gehäusetypen....

Thermalright rundet das Portfolio der HTPC fähigen Kühler mithilfe der Muscle Modelle sinnvoll nach unten ab. Die Kühlleistung reicht aus, um Mainstream CPUs/ APUs innerhalb der Spezifikationen zu betreiben. Dabei sind die Änderungen am Kühlerboden und...

Der Thermalright AXP-100 Muscle überzeugt nach seinem Facelift und der extra Portion Power auf ganzer Linie. Klein, kräftig und mit der Möglichkeit zum Aufrüsten bietet er alles, was man für ein Mini-System in Sachen CPU-Kühler haben möchte – vielleicht...

International Review By 3dnews.ru on

Около полутора лет назад мы изучали и тестировали четыре компактных кулера стандарта HTPC (Home Theatre Personal Computer). Ввиду сравнительно низкого спроса на такие системы, обновления систем охлаждения для них происходят не так часто, как в обычных...

Thermalright kann mit dem AXP-100 auf ganzer Linie überzeugen: Zunächst einmal bietet der kleiner Kühler eine herausragende Leistung in seiner Größenklasse und kommt mit einem guten Lüfter mit weitem Regelbereich daher, wodurch die komplette Bandbreite...

International Review By CowcotLand on

Sorti il y a quelques temps, le Thermalright AXP-100 est un petit radiateur low-profile surmonté d'un ventilateur de 100mm. Un modèle à priori très intéressant pour les configurations les plus compactes, notamment en Mini-ITX. Voyons voir ce qu'il a...

Mit dem AXP-100 hat Thermalright endlich wieder einen Top-Flow-Kühler im Portfolio. Der kleine Kühler ist durchaus auch in der Lage selbst stärkere CPUs zu kühlen. Gerade für einen Kühler seiner Größe erledigt er dies auch wirklich sehr gut. Auf...
