Nice, would be great to see how it measures vs the Kotetsu/Ninja4. Personally i dont get why they have so many very similar coolers.

Review at ComputerBase.

tl;dr: Improvement over Mugen 4, close to Thermalright HR-02 Macho Rev. B performance while taking up less space and no RAM restrictions. Downside: some bearing noise.

Also includes a fun Googlish translation. "Alpenföhn Brocken 2" translated to "Alpine fowl chunks 2". :)

And seemingly it likes more highish rpm (-0.4/0.9°C) than lowish ones (+1.0/1.4°C).

Fin spacing shows design intent - the wider they are spaced, the quieter it will be. To make up the surface area of wider spaced fins, the Ninja has larger fins, which makes it bigger.

Not really a review - just a recap of the release.
