Aus der Community: Alpenföhn Gletscherwasser dreimal im Lesertest

From the community: Alpenföhn Gletscherwasser tested three times

In January, three ComputerBase readers had the opportunity to test an all-in-one water cooling system of the Alpenföhn Gletscherwasser (HS) type from the premium segment: detailed results of the community tests were posted on the ComputerBase forum.

Community members “charmin” “DJKno” and “! Faculty” had a choice between a water from the Alpenföhn glacier 240mm or 360mm aluminum radiator, which, depending on the refrigerator model, is equipped with two or even three Wing Boost 3 ARGB fans and is available in normal and “high-speed” versions.

ComputerBase reader “charmin” tested the Alpenföhn Gletscherwasser with a 360mm radiator alongside a be quiet! Dark Base 700 also on a Lian Li O11 and was basically very satisfied with the all-in-one water cooling.

I achieved my goal of cooling the hardware a bit to a comparable volume and I also really like the look (…)

In the end, the tester was also convinced of the volume of the cooling solution, even if he had to do it himself.

However, you must manually intervene to silence the AIO system by setting a separate PWM curve for the pump and fan.

The full reading test for the Alpenföhn Gletscherwasser 360 “High-Speed”, which was carried out with an AMD Ryzen 9 3900 (test) on a Gigabyte Aorus X570 Pro, can be found on the ComputerBase forum.

Alpenföhn Gletscherwasser 240 in the reader’s test

The ComputerBase reader “DJKno” settled on the Alpenföhn Gletscherwasser 240 and tested it with an AMD Ryzen 7 2700X on an MSI MPG X570 Gaming Plus. The author especially highlights the optical advantages of AiO water cooling.

The AiO has a lot to offer in the optical area. In addition to the RGB lighting of the pump and fans, the replaceable cover plate of the pump stands out in particular. The optics can also be adjusted individually.

The cooling performance can also convince the “DJKno” and goes hand in hand with a non-intrusive noise development. The Alpenföhn Gletscherwasser 240 outperforms several comparison candidates in the reader’s test.

The cooling performance clearly outperforms all other coolers in my comparison. In idle you can also use the AiO as a silent lover without a problem if you are ready to manually adjust the fan curve, which is generally recommended. The cooling is clearly noticeable under load, but it doesn’t get too loud.

With his reader test on the ComputerBase forum, the reader also shows that the AiO water cooling also copes very well with the tight space conditions of the Antec NX400 case.

Alpenföhn Glacier Water 360 HS on a decapitated i5-8600K

In the reader’s test “! Faculty”, the Alpenföhn Gletscherwasser 360 HS had to prove itself on a decapitated Intel Core i5-8600K and was able to convince the author in all areas also in this discipline. The ComputerBase reader certifies that AiO water cooling has “superior” cooling performance and praises the fact that the fans can be regulated over a wide range of speeds.

The water from the Alpenföhn glacier offers superior cooling performance. The fans can be regulated in a wide range. If you let them run at full power, they are very audible. However, this setting is not necessary as the raw power of the AiO is sufficient to shut down the entire system.

“! Faculty” also expressly praises the processing of the Alpenföhn Gletscherwasser and states that all components leave a very valuable impression.

The Alpenföhn Gletscherwasser 360mm HS is a super-processed AiO cooling system that leaves nothing to be desired. The look is correct, adaptations to your own taste are possible by changing the logo plate. The processing quality of all supplied parts is excellent, everything makes a valuable impression.

In his reading test on the Alpenföhn Gletscherwasser 360 HS, the author repeatedly shows the large AiO water cooling reserves with a 360mm radiator.

During the testing phase, ComputerBase was in contact with the three testers and the testers also with each other to help with problems and, when in doubt, to be able to approach the manufacturer. The editors instructed the reviewers to draw a conclusion that was based on tangible findings and that did not compulsively favor the manufacturer. Because, like publishers, readers should also try ComputerBase for readers and not for businesses.
