Alpenfohn K2 Review

Up Close:  Packaging and contents

The K2 comes in an un windowed cardboard box resplendent with it's own pop out carry handle.  As usual the box has pictures of the cooler inside as well as giving details of specification and features.  Opening up the packaging is reminiscent of opening up a Russian doll, as there are boxes within boxes requiring a bit of a think as to how to get the contents out.

Contents wise, aside from the cooler itself we get 2 fans, 1x140mm and 1x120mm.  The fans are nicely made and are finished in that soft touch plastic that I can't help but find very tactile.  Also included are all the mounting screws and necessary brackets as well as a multi-socket back-plate.  Spring-clips to secure the fans, a molex adapter, instructions and a small syringe of TIM complete the package.

thank you GW. yeah, it looked like a contender for the title, too bad the 4.4 test bloodied
the fight, but the nominal usage looks good. the fans are quite different with the 2-tone
feature. thanks again

Benchmark tests were done during case changes and were always within tollerances of each other.

ie: the cases used made no difference from one to another how the heatsink performed.

This was the test i've been looking for!

I'm kind of surprised to see that the K2 falls behind the "big boys" significantly, while other reviews place it straight above the NH-D14!
