Product Overview Alpenföhn Matterhorn
Alpenföhn enters the next level and presents the „Matterhorn".The brand new 120mm tower cooler. Highest manufacturing quality, noble matt black finish as well as multiple features make this cooler the best solution for any application.

Features Mirror finished Fin design
The special trapezoid shaped fins that are placed in a 180° rythm creating two essential advantages:
- Narrow Fin pitch in the center of the heatsink
This feature increases the thermal surface and ensures a higher heat dissipation
- Wide fin pitch at air inlet area

By having a wide fin pitch at the air inlet area the Alpenföhn „Matterhorn" can be run with very low fan speed as the airflow faces less resistance.
Despite that the "Matterhorn" cooler has closed sides. This helps guiding the air through the narrow fin area and offers better mechanical stability

Heatpipe/Baseplate:
The six U-shape Heatpipes have a large contact area to the full copper baseplate to optimize the heat-transfer from the CPU.
By precision CNC machining the surface of the base plate is extremely flat.

Fan
The “Föhn120 WB” fan is equipped with injected anti-vibration elements, WB technology and HDS bearing.

MPM-System
The new MPM-System (Multi-Positioning-Mounting) offers highest contact pressure and ensures a solid mounting.

Supported sockets:
Intel Socket 775, 1156,1366
AMD Socket AM2, AM2(+)and AM3.

Special Feature
The positioning of the cooler towards the case back panel is possible for intel systems as well as AMD systems.

Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.
