Product information - Matterhorn Threadripper EditionIn the past, Alpenföhn expanded their product range at a rapid pace, releasing high-end CPU coolers like the Clockner, Brocken and Nordwand. Like other unforgettable classics from the manufacturer, the Matterhorn Threadripper Edition receives a fresh update with the addition of the Wing Boost 3 premium fan.

- High-rnd CPU cooler with 6 heatpipes
- Special black coating
- 120 mm WingBoost 3 premium fan
- Specially designed for AMD Socket TR4 Threadripper
Heavyweight PerformanceThe creation of the Matterhorn Threadripper Edition represents the culmination of multiple excellent design variants of earlier models over the course of many years. This time however it comes with an attractive black coating. Weighing in at almost 800 grams without a fan, it is certainly one of the heaviest coolers out there. Six black copper heatpipes are set into a black copper socket. The U-shaped heatpipes are attached in four rows to the heatsink, helping to improve the total surface area and provide improved airflow. The sideways facing seals also help to increase the stability of the fins.
Perfect BalanceThe asymmetrical layering of the slats is the central feature of the Matterhorn's construction. They are the result of two contradictory requirements: a high density of fins offering good cooling performance, but without obstructing the air flow and thus requiring high fan speeds. This would naturally increase the total noise levels to an unacceptable level. This is why the blades on the air intake side are very far apart at first, so that the air flow must only, to all intents and purposes, encounter resistance against every second blade.
The intermediate fins begin only inside the radiator itself, where the negative influence of the airflow is significantly reduced. This design has ultimately been realised in such a way that two tapered arrangements of fins are pushed into each other in a staggered manner. In addition to all the improvements in cooling and functionality this setup offers, it also happens to be visually attractive to boot.
The State of the ArtAs a fan, Alpenföhn includes a cutting-edge representative from the revised "Wing Boost 3" series, impressing users with its PWM connector and new "S-shape" blade geometry. This version of the Alpenföhn Matterhorn is specially customised to meet the needs of Threadripper CPUs, and is also both safe and easy to install thanks to the robust and stable backplate design.
In the bundle of the Matterhorn Threadripper Edition, in addition to the materials needed for mounting it to the TR4 socket, there is also a tube of high-performance Permafrost thermal paste from Alpenföhn, a 5 Volt- and a 7 Volt adapter for additional fan RPM regulation as well as four fan brackets to enable a second fan to be mounted on the heatsink for additional cooling performance.
