Page 1: Alpenföhn Matterhorn PURE
For quite some time we have seen that in other hardware sectors it is usual to firstly release the high-end products and later on, more cost efficient middle class products. In the last months Thermalright showed as well that it is indeed possible to reduce some features at a CPU cooler without reducing the cooling power. Alpenföhn is the next competitor which follows this path with the Matterhorn Pure.
By this effect, the Thermalright HR-02 Macho, the "light Version" of the HR 02 became quite a best seller so to say since the performance was equally good for less money. So, we are not wondering about the fact that Alpenföhn wants to do the exact same thing with the Matterhorn PURE. The following test is supposed to show if they succeeded.
But at first the data of the cooler:

We want to thank caseking.de for supplying us with the test sample.
