Alpenfohn Black Ridge CPU cooler is 47mm in height and features 6 copper heat pipes for cooling. The Black Ridge only supports Low Profile RAM with max height of 35mm. An additional 120mm fan can be mounted on top of the Black Ridge cooler, giving a max height of 62 / 72mm dependant upon the top fan thickness.

Testing is carried out on BC1 Mini v2 (open testbench), using the following hardware, in 20°C ambient room temperature. We noise normalised the cooler fan speed to 35dBA at distance of 50cm. This helps eliminate brute force cooling from higher RPM fans.

We use Cinebench R23 multicore (stability test), for period of 30 minutes. This provides worse case scenario for a given CPU. CPU coolers are tested across range of CPU’s for data validation and to reduce risk of errors in testing. This also helps account for variables between CPU platforms.
