Alpenfohn Black Ridge Low Profile CPU Cooler - 120mm

New from the premier fan and cooling accessories manufacturer Alpenföhn. The Black Ridge CPU cooler is the perfect complement to small form factor (SFF) cases such as the recently refreshed DAN case. In fact, the Alpenföhn Black Ridge was made in association with Daniel Hansen, the designer of the famed DAN case. The decision to mount the fan below the heat sink has freed up significant space, yet without any compromise in cooling performance.

The features of the Alpenföhn Black Ridge at a glance:

  • Optimal cooling design with fan mounted to bottom of heatsink
  • Exceptionally quiet 92 mm PWM fan included
  • 6 x 6 mm copper heatpipes
  • Slim heat sink with aluminium fins for additional cooling
  • Compatible with most current AMD and Intel CPUs

An outstanding design for quiet and efficient cooling:

The Alpenföhn Black Ridge is ideal for small form factor cases or builds with micro-ATX or mini-ITX motherboards. The dimensions of the Black Ridge enable it to maintain a low enough profile to fit comfortably in SFF case and Alpenföhn’s high quality engineering means that the Black Ridge has excellent thermal performance.

Alpenföhn have further innovated by attaching a 92-millimeter fan to the base of a high quality heatsink and in so doing have cut the overall height of the cooler to just 47 millimetres. This extraordinary design also has the added benefit of reducing fan noise.

A Premium Heatsink made from high quality Materials

The Alpenföhn Black Ridge features a total of six copper heatpipes. Each are six millimetres thick and designed to transfer heat away from the copper baseplate. The heat is then dissipated across the heatsink's aluminium fins. These fins have a large surface area which aids in the cooling of your CPU.

The other benefit of this design is that RAM modules of up to 33 mm in height will not impede the cooler. Additionally if VLP-RAM (Very Low Profile) is used a 120 mm fan can be mounted to the cooler rather than the standard 92mm fan.

The Black Ridge's bundled 92 mm fan is capable of providing exceptionally cooling relative to its size. Spinning at up to 2800 RPM, it achieves an airflow of more than 80 m³h. This is more than enough to meet the performance needs of a 95 Watt TDP CPU and all the while generating a mere 37.6 dB(A).

The Alpenföhn Black Ridge is compatible with all current Intel and AMD sockets and it creates a lasting impression of uncompromising quality with a sleek black colour.

The best air cooler for the Dan Case and maybe one of the best slim coolers overall

So this is Rev2 which fixes the the solder gaps in Rev1. Despite its name this cooler is not black, more of a dark metallic with light shade of black? So if you are thinking you are getting some all matte black cooler like the picture think again. My cooler had a slightly bent fin and some excess solder spilled on it. Also the provided fan is pretty bad and already was making a big of noise since the sticker was falling off. The fan itself felt cheap and has a bit of flex. I changed that for a Noctua slim 92mm fan. Installing is easy and Alpenfohn provides thermal paste. I would be aware of RAM and motherboard heat sink compatibility. Larger RAM will not work with this cooler and I suggest LPX RAM and the Asrock Z390 Phantom ITX does work. This cooler was designed for the Dan Case and barley fits in there and has a rated TDP of 95W. Using a delided Intel i7 8700K My max gaming temps were 72-74 degrees at 3440x1440 resolution. I would highly recommend this cooler for anyone who wants to go air cooled in a Dan Case.
