Thermalright AXP-100 Muscle Low Profile CPU Cooler

- Replaced by the Thermalright AXP-100H Muscle Low Profile CPU Cooler

The Thermalright AXP-100 Muscle is perfect for cooling a CPU quietly where space is at a premium.

The Thermalright AXP-100 Muscle once again impressively proves that it’s possible to offer top quality at an affordable price. As a member of the "Value" series this especially compact and powerful HTPC cooler offers exceptional value for money.


  1. Designed for ITX and HTPC systems
  2. Total height is only 58mm including the fan
  3. Adjustable Enhanced Fan Mount
  4. Full nickel plating finish
  5. Supports Intel LGA1150/1/5/6/1366/2011 and AMD AM2(+)/AM3(+)/FM1/FM2(+)

The "Muscle" is a revised version of the award-winning Thermalright AXP-100. By eliminating cost intensive features, like the refined heatpipe caps and the sliding "Enhanced Fan Mount", the AXP-100 Muscle can be offered at a very attractive price. By eliminating the backplate the assembly has been further simplified.

The main feature of the cooler is the ultra-low height of just 44mm (58 with the fan included). Thus the AXP-100 is the first choice when compact dimensions are essential. The AXP-100 Muscle is ideal for low profile Home Theater/Multimedia systems.

The AXP-100 Muscle makes use of the T-shape "down draft" cooler design, which directs the airflow perpendicular to the motherboard, therefore cooling the surrounding components as well. This provides cooling to not only the CPU but also the voltage converter, memory slots and chipset.

In total, the AXP-100 features six nickel plated heatpipes, which are soldered to the base plate to ensure the best possible heat dissipation. The special design of the 40 aluminium cooling fins minimises air resistance that effectively contributes to a reduction in temperatures.

The included fan is a high-quality TY 100 fan with a fan speed of 900 – 2500 RPM (± 15%), which is automatically regulated by means of PWM-signal of the motherboard (if supported). The optimal ratio between sound volume (22 - 30 dBa) and cooling capacity is guaranteed at all times, without the need of any manual intervention. The fan sports Thermalright's black and white colors, as do all their "Value" range.

The fan covers virtually all of the heatsink, guaranteeing the best possible heat dissipation. The fan is screwed to the heatsink, rather than using clips, making it a secure and stable method of mounting the fan.

The product is supplied with the excellent Thermalright Chill Factor thermal paste.
