Alpenföhn® Brocken 3

The 3rd generation of our success cooler!Brocken3 1


Brushed and anodized top fin, large surface heatsink having the fin spacing designed for silent operation in combination with aerodynamically optimized fins – Brocken 3 comprises the best out of two generations of “Brocken” shooting them to a new level of performance!

The also included 140 mm PWM fan of the new wing boost 3 series takes care of the required airflow. Because of the rigidly integrated guide wheel for axial flow direction we have achieved not only an improved cooler noise but also a minimized twist of the airflow at the heatsink. This results in the enormous performance of the cooler where the maximum speed has been reduced significantly compared to alternative layouts.

The mounting system “RockMount2 “ offers an even more improved user friendliness when installing the cooler.

Key Features

  • Tower cooler having 5*6mm heatpipes and 220W TDP
  • Aerodynamically optimized fins creating increased flow speeds
  • Asymmetrical structure of heatsink for close to 100% RAM compatibility
  • WingBoost fan of the 3rd generation including guide wheel for axial flow direction and minimized twist of air flow allowing whisper quiet operation
  • RockMount2 mounting system – warranty for quality and safety
  • Permafrost high-performance heat-conductive paste



HighEnd Heatpipes with gapless H.D.C-technology

Thanks to the gapless H.D.C –technology the five high performance heatpipes have direct contact to the cpu.


Asymetrical heatsink for enhanced flexibility

Due to the asmetrical heatsink all memory slots can be populated – even if high heatspreaders are used on the modules.


140mm WingBoost 3 Premium Fan


By means of a new blade angle the rotor has been optimized to lower speed in order to achieve in comparison with other fans a significantly higher volume flow, total pressure and exit speed at the same speed. And what is more, the aerodynamically optimized blade geometry favors the axial flow direction. Compared to conventional fans this “dispersion” of the airflow offers an increased surface to efficiently dissipate the heat of the heatsink. Additionally, the new blade geometry prevents the backflow of the proper flow direction – especially with higher counter pressure!

Below there is the immediate comparison between a conventional fan and the re-developed WingBoost 3 Premium Fan:

Guide Wheel

The rigidly integrated guide wheel in the fan frame allows to significantly increase the static pressure as well as to reduce the twist of the exit flow. The result is a further optimization of the radial flow component and the resulting noise reduction because the flow is not broken abruptly when the airflow hits the aluminum fin.


Plus Function

WingBoost3 includes a "Plus Function". It means that a Y-switch has been fastened at the PWM-plug for a second PWM fan. The switch allows controlling another PWM fan via a PWM board signal so it does not have to be connected via a cable adaptor or a 3-pin connection. Please note: When using a WingBoost3 fan up to three other fans can be connected to just on PWM board signal.


RockMount2 Mounting System – Warranty for Quality and Safety even better now

RockMount2 has become even more user-friendly when you install the cooler. RockMount2 supports all common bases from Intel and AMD. 2011, 2011-v3, 2066, 1366, 115x (Coffee Lake compatible), 775, AM4, AM3(+), AM3, AM2(+), AM2 as well as FM1. RockMount2 , as it usually does with contact pressure, counts on the base specific requirements of the respective manufacturer, while considering weight and size of the cooler.
