Kanie Hedgehog 238M NGML Review with online sound

In this review we have tested the Kanie Hedgehog 238M NGML 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 3000 rpm (612 NGML) Papst fan *
Size over all L/B/H +++ 60/65/69 mm The heatsink size isn’t bigger than the Sockel.
Cooling output + 15 CFM (~3000 rpm – * also with other fans available)
Noise level ++++ 19 dB (A) If your case is closed it’s impossible to hear this fan !!! Listen to the sound:
Mounting +++ It’s easy to fit this fan without screwdriver or anything else.
Cooling results +++ The hedgehog 238M also convinced with the very quiet NGML Papst fan at 42° C (46° C at 1,9 Vcore). Mounting the fan blowing to the heatsink give you nearly the same cooling result.
General impression +++ After one or two minutes assmebly you get a very good heatsink with top cooling results. In combination with the very quiet NGML Papst fan you’ll get a nice HSF combination for highend socket CPU and if you’re using good case cooling you don’t notice the difference to much louder fans with higher rotation speed. 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 !
