Product information - Brocken 3 Black Edition CPU Cooler - 2x140mm

What happens when you combine the best of two generations of "Brocken" coolers? The Brocken 3 with the best performance yet! The CPU cooler offers a heatsink with a large surface area and aerodynamically optimised fins as well as brushed and anodised top fins, and their fin distance is designed from the ground up for silent operation. In combination with the five 6 mm heatpipes and the two bundled 140 mm PWM Wing Boost 30-series fins, users are able to achieve unparalleled levels of cooling. The RockMount 2 mounting system also provides an optimised yet straightforward installation.

The Alpenföhn Brocken 3 Black Edition CPU Cooler at a Glance:

  • Black tower-style cooler with up to 220W TDP cooling performance
  • Five 6 mm heatpipes & optimised cooling fins
  • 2x Wing Boost 3 fans in white with PWM connector in the 140 mm format
  • Asymmetric construction of the tower cooler for maximum RAM module compatibility
  • Permafrost high-performance thermal paste
  • High compatibility with AMD and Intel
  • RockMount 2 installation system for straightforward installation

Powerful Third-Gen Alpenföhn Brocken Black Edition CPU Cooler

The third generation of the renowned and highly praised Brocken cooler from Alpenföhn is strongly reminiscent of its predecessors, yet it is able to draw on several updates and modifications to result in a marked performance improvement when compared to its predecessors. As such, lessons learned from the successful Brocken 1 & 2 are brought to bear in its construction - along with customer feedback and the input from respected online tech communities.

One particularly striking difference compared to its direct predecessor is that the dual-tower design has become a single tower, the aerodynamic qualities of which have been improved thanks to an optimised fin layout to make for significantly improved acoustics. Moreover, the addition of two Wing Boost 3 140 mm fans, which have a fixed integrated guide wheel for axial airflow alignment, has increased airflow as well as minimised air turbulence. The result is a not inconsiderable increase in fan performance, allowing the maximum speed to be reduced when compared to conventional designs.

Includes Two Wing Boost 3 Fans in White (140 mm) with PWM Connection

The Wing Boost 3 fans impress with the special angle of attack of the fan blades, meaning that they are optimised for lower speeds and, compared to other fans at the same speed, achieve significantly higher flow volume, higher static pressure and higher discharge velocity. In addition, the aerodynamically optimised blade geometry favours the axial orientation of the air flow, offering a corresponding improvement due to the waste heat from the heatsink being given more space to dissipate.

Of course, the 140 mm fan can be connected directly to the installed motherboard via a PWM connector and spins at a speed of between 400 and 1050 RPM depending on the CPU's temperature. Equipped with durable and long-lasting fluid dynamic bearings, a maximum airflow of 103 m³/h is produced at the cost of just 19 dB of noise.

The Gapless H.D.T technology, whereby the heatpipes are integrated directly into the copper base plate is once again used, and this helps to increase heat transfer. Additionally, the Brocken 3 benefits from its asymmetric cooling tower design with the five silver nickel-plated heatpipes rise so high that the radiator is not exactly centred above the baseplate, but slightly offset to the rear.

As a result, not a single RAM slot on most motherboards on the market is blocked by the cooler, even if the fan is mounted at the front - as usual - and thus blows inwards. So nothing stands in the way of a full configuration of RAM modules. All boards that have AMD sockets AM4, AM3(+), AM2(+), FM2(+) and FM1 or Intel sockets 775, 1366, 115x and 2011(V3) or Intel sockets 775, 1366, 115x can be used as motherboards. Thanks to the RockMount 2 mounting system, the installation of Brocken 3 is made even simpler.

Sahneschnittchen für 4 RAMS

Typisch Alpenföhn, wieder ein tolles Teil rausgehauen. Edel und groß. Vorher gut nachmessen ob er reinpasst.
vor allem hinten raus zur Gehäuserückwand, da könnte es bei manchen Gehäusen und Mainboards knapp werden mit dem hinteren Lüfter.
Ansonsten gibts da nix zu meckern. Durch die Bauweise können auch alle 4 RAM Bänke belegt werden und das Teil schaut edel in meinem HAF-X Big Tower aus. AM4 Kit ist auch dabei, genauso wie ein stylischer Alpenföhn Schraubendreher. Laut geht bei Alpenföhn sowies nicht, die Lüfter sind die Ruhe selbst auf meinem AMD Ryzen 2700x und Asus rog X470 F gaming


guter Kühler

Der Kühler selbst ist ganz gut. Die Lüfter lassen sich ohne viel hantieren befestigen.

Der asymetrische Aufbau ist bei ausladenden RAM-Bausteinen sehr vorteilhaft.

Die mitgelieferte Wärmeleitpaste war jedoch nicht zu gebrauchen; hier kann ich nur ein anderes Produkt empfehlen.


Richtiger BROCKEN!

Montage war bisschen friemelig, aber vielleicht nur weil ich ihn direkt im Gehäuse montiert habe.

2-Lüfter passt in mein Dark Base 700 mit Prime X470 PRO leider nicht rein.

Super für einen Kühler dieser Grösse ist die asymetrische Form das die RGB-Rams komplett frei liegen...dadurch natürlich Richtung Gehäuse Rückseite weniger Platz.



Preis/Leistung der Hammer.


Guter Kühler

Gutes Haltesystem und Backplate. Habe ihn mit einem Ryzen 2700 verwendet und mit OC auf 4,15 bei 1,42 vcore unter 80c halten können. Leider konnte ich den 2ten Lüfter nicht befestigen können weil das IO-shield im Weg war.


Großes Teil

Super Qualität. Wunderbar verpackt - der mitgelieferte Schraubendreher ist auch gut. Montage leicht frickelig mit den Lüftern.
Der Brocken hat den Freezer 7 ersetzt auf einem i7 4790K. Temperaturunterschied ca 7-10°C unter Vollast.
Empfehlenswert wäre es noch die CPU zu köpfen. Dann sind dort bestimmt ein paar Grad mehr zu holen.


Guter Kühler mit sehr guter RAM-Kompatibilität

Habe mich für diesen Kühler entschieden da ich bei anderen Kühlern oft das Problem hatte das es platz mäßig nicht mit den RAM-Riegeln zusammen passte.

Dieses Problem hat der Kühler meiner Meinung nach recht gut gelöst indem der Kühlkörper asymmetrisch aufgebaut ist.

Auch die Optik in schwarz hat mir sehr gut gefallen.

Läuft jetzt seit zwei Wochen ohne Problem und sehr leise in meinem Rechner.

Würde ihn auch wieder Kaufen.
