Stock Fan Performance Results

You can find our 2015 CPU Cooler Testing Methodology HERE.

These results are damn good for relatively small dual 120mm CPU cooling solution. RPM for RPM this unit is right up there with dual 140mm radiator based solutions. Unforuntately as the two fans are not all that powerful (ie low static pressure) nor that fast (1700RPM) this unit is actually outclassed by smaller units that do have faster fans. That is a shame and did leave us craving more. With that being said, as you will see, AlphaCool's cooler retains impressively low acoustics.

Quad Fan Performance Results

Once again this device is a excellent cooler, but one whose true performance potential will never be realized with those fans. Simply put they do sacrifice a lot of performance in order to be as low noise as possible. In this regard the Eisbär strongly reminds me of the Corsair H90 which also sacrificed performance for near-silence.
