Alpenföhn may not be a name some will be familiar with but over the last couple of years they have steadily been gathering momentum, releasing some fantastic products which have proven their worth in an extremely competitive market. Alpenföhn’s CPU cooler lineup take their names from a mountainous theme. We’ve had K2, Himalaya and many others – today we taken on a cooler which again takes its name from a mountain pass – Gotthard.
Gotthard is the second top-flow design CPU cooler in Alpenföhn product range. It features a three heatsink design, six copper heatpipes and a single 140mm Wing Boost cooling fan. Gotthard has the makings for a very effective cooling solution and it can support a plethora of CPU sockets but how will it cope with the high-end LGA2011 and Sandy Bridge-E?
