The pump on the Gletscherwasser AIO liquid coolers can be configured to either extreme performance or “virtual silence” (rated noise of 17.8 dBA). Alpenföhn promises an anti-leak design, with internal pressure avoiding any spillage should the potential for a leak occur (in all parts, including the 465 mm tubing that connects the pump to the radiators. The radiators are made of aluminium, coming in at 27 mm thickness. The Gletscherwasser 240 and 360 fans speeds range from 500 to 1600RPM, with a rated airflow of up to 92.6 m³/h, a maximum pressure of 2.19 mm Aq and a rated noise of up to 23.6 dBA, while the HS (High Speed) models fans are a bit faster and louder, reaching up to 2200RPM with a rated airflow of up to 132.4 m³/h, a maximum pressure of 3.24 mm Aq, and a rated noise of up to 36.8 dBA.
The Alpenföhn Gletscherwasser AIOs ship with Thermal Grizzly Hydronaut thermal paste, and feature compatibility with a number of systems and sockets: fir Intel, you’re looking at LGA 1200, 1150, 1151, 1155, 1156, 1366, 2066, 2011-v3, and 2011 socket support; on the AMD side, the TR4, sTRX4, AM4, AM3+, AM3, AM2+, AM2, and FM1 sockets are supported. The Alpenföhn Gletscherwasser 240 and 240 HS are both priced at £149.99, while the Gletscherwasser 360 and 360 HS are priced at £169.99, via OverclockersUK. That £20 difference accounts for one extra ARGB fan as well as the extra radiator real-estate, so it might be worth the trade-off in price.
