Alpenfohn Sella 92mm Fan CPU Cooler Review
Ryan Martin+ / 9 months ago
Alpenfohn may be a brand more associated with their high performance products but today we are examining their Alpenfohn Sella CPU cooler, this is Alpenfohn’s attempt at making a much more budget friendly CPU cooler option. The Alpenfohn Sella is a 92/90mm fan based CPU cooler, similar to products like the SilverStone AR02 and the Cooler Master Hyper TX3. With three 6mm heat pipes, a 900 to 2200 RPM 92mm fan and a pretty thick heatsink – the Alpenfohn Sella promises punchy performance without a premium price point coming in at the sub-£20 region.
With the Alpenfohn Sella we have compatibility with the main sockets on the market such LGA 115X (0/5/6), LGA 775, AM2(+) and AM3(+). There is no official support for FM1 or FM2 (but FM1/2 are AM3(+) inter-compatible) APUs as far as I am aware and LGA 2011 and LGA 1366 are not supported. Though you can buy an LGA 2011 specific version (which they do make). Despite this the Alpenfohn Sella covers the main bases, that is socket LGA 115X and AM3(+)/FM(1/2) so most users will find this suits their platform. Without any further ado let us now proceed through the review and see what this budget CPU cooler from Alpenfohn can offer us.
