Alpenfohn Matterhorn Pure CPU Cooler Review - Alpenfohn Matterhorn Pure CPU Cooler Review
Sun Aug 04, 2013 | 9:00A | PermaLink BY: Max Page
Alpenfohn are still a bit of an obscure brand name these days in English speaking countries but they are definitely up and coming thanks to hugely successful products like the “K2 Mount Doom”. Their name is much more prevalent across mainland Europe as Alpenfohn originate from Germany. Yet in the UK we are seeing them pop up more and more with Overclockers UK and CaseKing working really hard to spread their products. Alpenfohn are dark horses in the cooling market producing some really high quality “German-engineered” products at a very affordable price point. Today we are looking at their Matterhorn Pure CPU cooler which is a rather large tower heatsink cooler ventilated by a 120mm fan yet packs a very modest £30 price point. The specifications are pretty impressive too and I haven’t really seen six 6mm heat pipes on such a low cost unit before so it will be interesting to see whether this bodes any advantage for our test system. Though what tends to happen on LGA 1155 is because the CPU die is so small that only 4-5 heat pipes can actually make contact with the IHS and move heat, so having six versus four heat pipes is only a really big advantage for LGA 2011.
