Alpenfohn Unveils the Olymp Dual Fin-stack CPU Cooler

Alpenfohn unveiled the Olymp premium twin-tower type CPU cooler. This aluminium fin twin-stack cooler features a unique design, in that the aluminium fins of two stacks are slanted in opposite direction to each other, to increase air turbulence, and improve heat dissipation. Six 6 mm thick, nickel-plated copper heat pipes convey heat drawn from a nickel-polished copper base, to the two fin-stacks.

The two stacks are ventilated by a pair of 140 mm fans in push-pull configuration, which each spin at 300-1,400 RPM, take in PWM input, and push up to 123 m³/h, with a noise output ranging between 8-26.8 dBA. The Olymp offers cooling capacities rivaled only by liquid cooling solutions, handling thermal loads of up to 340W. It hence supports all modern CPU socket types, including LGA2011v3, AM3+, FM2+, and LGA115x. A tube of Alpenfohn Permafrost TIM comes included. Measuring 165 mm x 151 mm x 150 mm, the cooler weighs in at 1.2 kg. The company didn't announce pricing.

The side of the fins isn't exactly sharp. The corners are another story though. I've had my bloody experiences with these kind of coolers before, and it ain't pretty. Always wear a glove when you're installing a new, shiny air coolers.

My NZXT T40 cut me fairly bad when I installed it. It's sharp. :(

Those edges look like they're going to saw your fingers off :D
My CNPS10X Performa was notorious for that.

If it cuts through your fingers, then you know it'll cut through though the air moving through it. Really, it's a feature. :p

At 165mm tall, this is one of the larger coolers, and it looks even bigger - looks like a close fit, even though the Evolv mATX case pictured has 192mm CPU cooler clearance (27mm to spare).
