Cooling specialist EKL unveiled the Alpenfohn Peter, a high-end VGA cooler which the company plans to release at this year's CeBIT event, in March. Visualized in CGI drawings below, Alpenfohn Peter is a large GPU heatsink which could span across the length of most high-end graphics cards. It makes use of two high-density aluminum fin arrays that use a zig-zag fin design to add turbulence and improve heat dissipation. Heat is conveyed to the two fin arrays by six nickel-plated copper heat-pipes that pass through the GPU block. For ventilation, Alpenfohn Peter will be the first VGA heatsink to use two massive 140 mm fans that latch on to it using a PCI bracket with a rail fastening system. The Alpenfohn Peter should be compatible with most square GPUs. More info and pictures at CeBIT.

the 450 is so weak it doesn't warrant speding so much money (as I expect this won't sell cheap) on a custom cooler for it

looks small.. i bet heat would saturate the sink to its full wattage threshold in a short time.. but the 'zigzag' fin design thing would probably make it quite efficient in dissipation.. provided the low pressure 140mm fan would push through the 'high density' fin.

:laugh:

Too right, I'll get one of these! love big heatsinks :laugh:

Think I'd strap some 92mms to it though.

Or run it demi passive and have the 140mm fans to the side of it instead.

( it looks small because it's next to 140mm fans, it looks to me like it will be same width as card if not a cm or 2 bigger, and length wise it's about 24 cm)


By the way mounting system looks universal so aslong as your gpu is far enough way from the pcie bracket (rev1 5770 = fail)

seeing stock high gpu can have up to 250 tdp, it will be instresting if we can use gpu cooler for cpu, especialy if it have performance like hd 5970 cooler

Looks alot like the Deepcool V6000, but with 140mm fans.

Even the fin design is very similar.

Deepcool are one of the OEMS EKL/Alpenfóhn use.

For example "Brocken" is iceblade pro by deepcool : ]

I have thought this for a long long time. considering the gpu coolers often are cheaper than the cpu coolers
