Another week goes by and we have yet another cooler from Alpenföhn, in the shape of the Himalaya. This time, ultimate performance makes way for a cheaper, smaller, lighter and more space friendly alternative. That’s not to say that Alpenföhn are targeting those on a strict budget because the recently released Triglav takes that position already. Instead, Alpenföhn are aiming at the same market Thermalright currently do with their Archon and Venomous X; single tower coolers delivering excellent cooling potential without the cumbersome size-related issues that plague dual tower coolers. Certainly, we only have to look at the six heat piped design of the Himalaya to get an indication of where Alpenföhn are placing this product. Marketed as a ‘SlimTower’ cooler, it fulfils the requirements of enthusiasts looking to buy tall heatsinked memory modules without the compromise of diminished cooling potential that typically goes alongside smaller-sized coolers or so it aims to accomplish. Like many previous Alpenföhn coolers, the Himalaya is hoping to continue the company’s virtue of aesthetics and innovation, which on initial impressions they seem to be achieving thanks to the cooler’s slick aluminium construction and uniquely shaped fins.
