Alpenfohn K2 CPU Cooler Ready to Freeze

Alpenfohn did say, a while ago, that it would launch a new high-end cooler, and the moment has arrived at long last, the K2 finally stepping forward to have its mettle tested.

Processors from Advanced Micro Devices and Intel, at least those aimed at enthusiasts and gamers, now have a new cooler to lie under. 

The K2, as the newcomer is called, is compatible with not just Intel LGA 775, LGA 1155, LGA 1156 and LGA 1366 chips, but also AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+ and FMI units from AMD.

It is a fairly effective active air cooler, though 'fairly' may be something of a massive understatement at this point.

The fact that it weighs a massive 1,415 grams an measures 143 x 154 x 160 mm makes it obvious that the case of a PC will have to be big and spacious on the inside.

The rest of the specs are in order with what a high-end cooler is supposed to accomplish, from the twin-tower heatsink to the existence of two bundled fans instead of just one.

The Alpenfohn K2 , to be more specific, has two Wing Boost PWM fans, one of which has a diameter of 140 mm and a rotary speed of 300 to 1,100 RPM (rotations per minute) and another, a 120 mm model, which works at 500 to 1,500 RPM.

In that order, they produce maximum noise levels of 19.4 dBA and 24.8 dBA, respectively.

As for what the item is actually composed of, the copper base and eight nickel-plated, 6 mm copper heatpipes handle the part of CPU heat absorption and conduction.

Finally, the aluminum fin towers (two, also nickel-plated) spread the heat around, leaving it to the aforementioned fans to disperse it.

Caseking is already shipping this product, for the price of 74.90 Euro, which more or less equals $100.54, based on current exchange rates.
