Alpenföhn Brocken 3 Black Edition – Massive Tower Cooler with Two Fans

The manufacturer Alpenföhn has long been a well-known manufacturer of CPU coolers and case fans. Especially with the names of the products Alpenföhn is able to attract attention again and again. Many coolers carry the name of well-known European mountains such as the Brocken. Since the first revision the Brocken belonged to the more performant coolers of the line-up. Two years ago, the third revision in the form of the Brocken 3 was introduced. In order to improve the cooling performance even more and to put a scoop on it optically, Alpenföhn equipped this cooler with an additional fan and coloured the heat sink. A distinction has to be made between the Brocken 3 Black Edition and the Brocken 3 White Edition. The price for the black version € 65.99 and € 65.99 must be put on the table for the white version.

In this review you can see how the Alpenföhn Brocken 3 Black Edition performed in our test parcour.

Packaging & Scope of Delivery

The Brocken 3 Black Edition comes in a very large cardboard box. The box is colorfully printed and contains a lot of information about the cooler and the fans. In addition, both color variants of the cooler can be seen on the cardboard. All information is written in English.

If you unpack the contents inside the box, you will find the heat sink, two fans, a screwdriver, detailed assembly instructions and a box with all assembly accessories (screws, backplate, spacer, bracket, thermal paste). The screwdriver with a magnetized tip is particularly advantageous and should greatly simplify the installation of the cooler. To protect the cooler and the fans from any damage, all components are wrapped in a soft foam.
