Kanie Hedgehog 238M N2/GHH Review with online sound

In this review we have tested the Kanie Hedgehog 238M N2/GHH Cooler and measured the temperature results with our test setup. Additionally you can listen to an embedded MP3 fan sound sample of the fan on the respective heatsink.

Name Hedgehog 238M with 6700 rpm (612 N2/GHH) Papst fan *
Size over all L/B/H +++ 60/65/69 mm The heatsink size isn’t bigger than the Sockel.
Cooling output +++ 33 CFM (~6700 rpm – * also with other fans available)
Noise level — 43 dB (A) With closed case much louder than my HDD raid ! Listen to the sound:
Mounting +++ It’s easy to fit this fan without screwdriver or anything else.
Cooling results ++++ The kanie hedgehog N2/GHH combination convinced with 37° C (40°C at 1,9 Vcore). Don’t mount the fan blowing to the heatsink the results would be a few degree higher.
General impression +++ After one or two minutes assmebly you get a very good fan with top cooling results. Because of the very high rotation speed the fan is like a hurricane in your PC and louder than the N2/GH Papst fan. This is a very heavy full copper version of Alpha PAL 6035 but it’s also more expensive. It’s also possible to use this fan for Intel FCPGA CPU and there’s also an english mounting guide included. This fan is also fit for using with Peltier Element !
