Alpenfoehn Brocken 2 CPU Cooler Review

While this image is typically of the front of the packaging, technically speaking we are looking at the top of the box. Here Alpenfoehn flanks the product name and the image of the cooler and fan with what appears to be some sort of rocky crevasse.




The longer sides of the packaging display information, while the shorter panels are left all black. In this instance, we can see the history of this cooler, and the changes made to advance the Brocken 2 from its original design. The addition of the Wing Boost 2 fans is also addressed in the second section.




The bottom of the packaging offers some information as well. Here we find a specifications list, along with the socket compatibility list, and a section dedicated to informing us that we are looking at a CPU cooler.




The last panel to offer anything worth looking at is the second, longer side panel. Here we get a look at the pair of nickel plated top plates on the towers, next to three renderings of the cooler with the dimensional specifications added to them.




The top of the box opens up to expose the manual resting on top of the fan. Both the fan and the tower are resting in dense foam compartments to isolate them during transit. The hardware is all contained within the thin white box sitting in the end nearest in the picture. In addition to the dense foam used, the cooler is also wrapped inside of a plastic bag, and has desiccant packets in with it to absorb any moisture the cooler may encounter during transit. All told, the cooler arrived in great shape, with no bent fins or scrapes to speak of.
