Compatibility and Installation Tips
As I wrote above, the Alpenföhn Nordwand is equipped with the same fasteners as the Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme, so I won’t discuss them here. I can only add that the distance from the mainboard to the cooler’s bottom plate is 43 millimeters.
Inside a system case the new cooler looks like that:
The cooler is 3-4°C better in this position than if you turn its heatsink by 90 degrees counterclockwise. The reason is obvious if you compare the prints of the CPU’s heat-spreader on the cooler’s base that have been shown above.
The fan of the Alpenföhn Nordwand has four blue LEDs that create a soft highlighting inside the system case.
