When in doubt, make everything bigger? Case maker Hyte (the lifestyle brand of PC maker iBuypower), known for its Hyte Y40 and Y60 chassis that we’ve reviewed, brought its creative A-game to Computex 2023 with the THICC Q60, a liquid all-in-one of XXL size. cooler that brings two great innovations in one. The first is a giant smartphone-sized screen that looms over the pumping unit. The second is a nifty connection scheme that allows you to connect other gear, including fans and RGB strips, in series.

The THICC Q60 is the company’s first liquid cooler. As you can see, it has an IPS screen suspended on an arm above the CPU socket and cooling block…

This is a 5-inch panel with a 720-by-1280 resolution, and you can tilt it for ideal visibility. (The display itself actually comes from a maker of Android smartphone displays, according to company representatives.) The body of the screen has some “underglow” RGB backlighting to set the screen off from the rest of the case.

You control the THICC’s screen and its brightness from software on the PC side, which Hyte calls Nexus. On the panel, you can change the backgrounds, display different sources of information such as reminders, monitor system vitals, or even just display the time.

As for the cheeky name of the product, it encompasses the circumference of your radiator and fans. A Hyte representative noted that this 240mm class cooler should offer cooling performance comparable to some 360mm AIO models. Clearly, the funky screen can be cool, but it’s not that pretty cool; looking at the radiator and fans, you can see the extra thickness of both…

That means more pushed airflow (from a fan standpoint) and more surface area to cool (from a radiator standpoint). The radiator is 52mm thick and the fans are 32mm.

Hyte designed the THICC to work specifically in their Y40 chassis, allowing for ideal motherboard tray mounting next to the motherboard. It should work fine in other cases as well, with the radiator mounted at the front. However, you’ll want to check the clearance specs if you’re thinking of top-mounting the radiator, given the extra thickness. The chunky fans themselves are new offerings from Hyte, dubbed the FT12, and they connect to each other via magnetic coupling, eliminating the need for wiring for each one. Each 500rpm to 2000rpm fan also contains its own thermal sensor.

The other noteworthy aspect of this cooler is the wiring scheme, Nexus Link, which it features for connecting other Hyte fans and light strips in your case. Hyte’s FT12 fans and light strips can be connected, in daisy chain, using a proprietary USB-C type connector Hyte has developed. (The connectors have an irregularly shaped frame to prevent you from connecting them to other incompatible USB items.) This is how it looks…

Given the limitations of power delivery and the number of devices you can daisy chain, Hyte will also offer a separate module that allows you to daisy chain additional devices, the Nexus Portal, if you really want to get in on the Nexus team.

Expect the Hyte THICC Q60 to hit the streets in September for around $299.99, with the FT12 fans at $79.99 for a three-pack.
