Alpenföhn Civetta CPU Cooler Review
Luke Hill / 11 years ago
Since releasing the very popular Matterhorn earlier this year, Alpenföhn have been working extremely hard to build upon that success. Their CPU cooler line-up has widened tremendously while VGA coolers, HDD coolers and notebook coolers are just some of the other product markets Alpenföhn have expanded into. Today we will be taking a look at one of their low cost solutions which targets system builders on a budget.
The Alpenföhn Civetta utilizes a triplet of 6mm copper heatpipes feeding into an aluminium fin array. The H.D.T. design should allow for fast heat extraction from the CPU, off-loading that heat to the aluminium fin array for it to be dissipated by the 92mm 2,800 RPM PWM fan.
Available for just €17.90 Alpenföhn set the Civetta at a price point which everybody can afford. Weighing in at a mere 290g for the heatsink alone and with a maximum height of just 120mm, Alpenföhn’s Civetta could be the perfect low cost CPU cooler for users with space constraints. Will the performance on offer allow the low profile crown to be passed on to the Civetta?
