Thermalright is known for releasing neverending waves of products, and this trend continued at Computex 2024. The company had more CPU coolers than we could realistically cover including several coolers with screens. We’ll walk you through some of the highlights, which include an air cooler with two 140mm fans, a cooler with a 90mm fan, and more.

Royal Pretor 130 and Royal Pretor 130 Ultra

The Royal Pretor 130 is an air cooler with two 28mm thick fans, which is 3mm thicker than standard 25mm fans. One fan is 130mm and the other is 120mm. It will retail for $50.  

There are variations of it including the Royal Pretor 130 Ultra. Differences we noticed include the number of heat pipes and fan thickness. The Royal Pretor 130 has 6 fans while the Ultra variant has 7. 

The Royal Pretor 130 Ultra also has a 25mm thick front fan.

Like we recently reported on with Scythe, Thermalright is also soldering its heatpipes to its fins rather than using a press-fit solution. The company says it's doing this more for build quality than thermal performance. Thermalright says it’s tested the Royal Pretor 130 at 300 watts under an Intel heat load and compared to the Peerless Assassin 120, the company says it’s seeing about a 4 degree difference on its Intel IHS test. That's a pretty big difference and probably comes mostly from the pressure generated by the fan thickness and from the 130mm fan.

Peerless Assassin 140

Moving on, Thermalright also showed off its new Peerless Assassin 140. It will come with 2 fans, though the version we saw on the show floor only featured 1. It will be $35, which is the same price as the Peerless Assassin 120, and will have thicker finstacks than the Peerless Assassin 120. It’s 159mm tall and features a 140mm fan, so it’s a big air cooler. 

Royal Knight

The Royal Knight is almost a Fuma-style cooler with a slimmer front fan coupled with a more standard fan thickness in the center. 

It’s also offset backwards for better RAM clearance. The downside to this design is that when you shorten the front fan, it reduces pressure. According to Scythe, setting the heat pipes at an angle rather than going straight theoretically reduces performance. So the benefit with this design will be in regards to clearance. 

The Royal Knight will have 6 heat pipes and will cost $35 like the Peerless Assassin 120 before it.

This shirt features band-style "tour dates" on the back, detailing the most disappointing moments in PC hardware for all of 2023. They also have an explosion diagram of a RAM module on the front. Buying these directly funds our AD-FREE website reviews and our in-depth testing. Charcoal Heather is ultra comfortable and still in stock! Once these are gone, we will not be restocking them!

Peerless Assassin 90 SE

The Peerless Assassin 90 SE gets its name from its 90mm fan size. It’s very stout and only has 4 heat pipes, but at $20, it’s one of the cheapest coolers we’ll test, alongside the Jonsbo CR1200 (watch our review). 

Burst Assassin 120 Evo

The Burst Assassin 120 Evo has 6 heat pipes. The cooler uses a push-pull configuration with the back fan acting as the pull solution with its reverse blades. It will retail for $25.

Burst Assassin 120 Vision

There will also be a Burst Assassin 120 Vision variant. It adds a screen to the top of the cooler and costs $50.

AIO Hypervision

In addition to the wide array of air coolers, Thermalright also showed off its AIO Hypervision liquid cooler, which features a 3.95-inch display. Instead of pogo pins, it uses a cable, which the company says it incorporated so users have more control over where they put its screen. It will cost $130 when it releases in July. 

Thermalright says it’s also working on something that may compete with Tryx, but we’ll leave it at that for now.

Warframe Pro Cooler

The Warframe Pro Cooler is another Thermalright liquid cooler with a screen

More Coolers with Screens

Thermalright has a variety of other air and water coolers with screens attached to the top of them.

Interesting Fan Colors

The company also showed off a variety of interesting color options for its fans.

Liquid Crystal Polymer Fan

Thermalright is also working on a Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) Fan, which has been something Noctua has been talking about for the past year. It’s something many companies are getting into and allows the blade to get as close to the inner wall of its frame as possible without clipping. The major downside is that LCP fans are extremely expensive. 

On the display fan we saw, we noticed there’s a little bit of a larger gap between the fan and its housing. When we asked Thermalright about this, the company told us that it was a deliberate choice to support higher RPMs, which is something we personally couldn’t validate at the show.
