New from the premier fan and cooling accessories manufacturer Alpenföhn. The Black Ridge CPU cooler is the perfect complement to small form factor (SFF) cases such as the recently refreshed DAN case. In fact, the Alpenföhn Black Ridge was made in association with Daniel Hansen, the designer of the famed DAN case. The decision to mount the fan below the heat sink has freed up significant space, yet without any compromise in cooling performance.
THE FEATURES OF THE ALPENFÖHN BLACK RIDGE AT A GLANCE:
AN OUTSTANDING DESIGN FOR QUIET AND EFFICIENT COOLING:
The Alpenföhn Black Ridge is ideal for small form factor cases or builds with micro-ATX or mini-ITX motherboards. The dimensions of the Black Ridge enable it to maintain a low enough profile to fit comfortably in SFF case and Alpenföhn’s high quality engineering means that the Black Ridge has excellent thermal performance.
Alpenföhn have further innovated by attaching a 92-millimeter fan to the base of a high quality heatsink and in so doing have cut the overall height of the cooler to just 47 millimetres. This extraordinary design also has the added benefit of reducing fan noise.
A PREMIUM HEATSINK MADE FROM HIGH QUALITY MATERIALS
The Alpenföhn Black Ridge features a total of six copper heatpipes. Each are six millimetres thick and designed to transfer heat away from the copper baseplate. The heat is then dissipated across the heatsink's aluminium fins. These fins have a large surface area which aids in the cooling of your CPU.
The other benefit of this design is that RAM modules of up to 33 mm in height will not impede the cooler. Additionally if VLP-RAM (Very Low Profile) is used a 120 mm fan can be mounted to the cooler rather than the standard 92mm fan.
The Black Ridge's bundled 92 mm fan is capable of providing exceptionally cooling relative to its size. Spinning at up to 2800 RPM, it achieves an airflow of more than 80 m³h. This is more than enough to meet the performance needs of a 95 Watt TDP CPU and all the while generating a mere 37.6 dB(A).
The Alpenföhn Black Ridge is compatible with all current Intel and AMD sockets and it creates a lasting impression of uncompromising quality with a sleek black colour.

I was skeptical that I would find the Alpenfohm Black Ridge for purchase in the USA then I found shop4megastore.com. They provided the cooler for a fair price and quick shipping. I could not be happier with my brand new and undamaged purchase. The Black Ridge's construction is black nickel plated with smooth cooling fin edges. Build quality is excellent. While mounting was simple, it is not compatible with all motherboards, tall RAM kits, and Small Form Factor cases that cannot accommodate a cooler height of 47 mm. Also, given the size of the heatsink and 92mm fan (that I swapped out for a Noctua NF-A9x14PWM for lower noise) this cooler is not recommended for CPUs with a TDP greater than 95W and definitely not recommended for overclockers. While I highly recommend this cooler as a good, elegant choice for Small Form Factor Builds, its understandable size and temperature limitations require careful consideration based on build components.
