Performance of the new Alpenföhn Olymp?

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
This just got released a couple of days ago:

http://www.alpenfoehn.de/en/cpu-cooler/olymp


What is interesting about it is the angled design of the CPU fins:


They also advertise their "shock killer pole" to try to reduce pressure on the CPU.




It has a mass of 1.2 kg without the fans, so somewhat heavier than the D15 and R1 Ultimate, although not nearly as heavy as the 1.9 kg True Copper. Comes with 6 x 6 mm Heatpipes. I think there may be slightly more surface area on this CPU than on the other coolers.

On the downside, it looks like the heatpipes may not be soldered onto the fins individually.

What are your thoughts?

Think it's going to need powerful fans to push through those canted fins. Could be a noisy, turbulent beast. If the fins aren't soldered, that might hurt it too. However, it's always good to see new big, burly air coolers even if it whistles while it works.

Just noticed the Raijintek Tsis Core refresh - a decent value cooler, now in sexy black!



Sadly for frozen north air fiends, Alpenfoehn isn't sold in Canada. Appears Raijintek has discontinued distribution as well. Joining Scythe and Thermalright as great brands not available to purchase. Oh, well, too many choices is never a good thing. ;-)

Looks like a bigger version of Atlas



As you can see, only the outer edges of fins are angled.

Alpenföhn stuff seems to never get to top of the pack in reviews, always mediocre somehow.

But they only sell in euro anyways~

I think nans should ship to Canada, and scythe actually have serveral online retail carrying them in US. If you in Canada, I don't see why you can't get one for cheap shipping.

Reason is defective testing by reviewers, not the coolers themselves. Alpenfohn, DeepCool, Gamer Storm .. same with different names. For example Alpenfohn K2 was Deep Cool Assassin.

I was wondering why they didn't go for 8mm heatpipes, like a TS 140 power and maybe the Nh-u14 S ? Where the larger heatpipes seem to allow them to match the performance of larger heatsinks with smaller pipes. Interested to see the performance but I can't imagine it's that far beyond what we've already seen, especially on mainstream Intel.

Hopefully someone will review it on a higher tdp chip to see what it will really do.

So the same Chinese manfacturer disguise as European.

Because extensive testing has shown 6mm vs 8mm to not make much of a difference. Perfect example is TRUE Spirit 140 Power and TRUE Spirit 140 Rev.A. Almost identical performance.

Interesting, they have the same performance at high tdp with overclocks?

do your homework mate. Deepcool is Chinese, Alpenfohn is German. Always has been. But what isn't make in China now?biggrin.gif
