Size over all L/B/H +++ 60/60/70 mm The heatsink size isn’t bigger than the Sockel.
Cooling output +++ 27 CFM (~5600 rpm – * also with other fans available)
Noise level – 38 dB (A) Not so loud as the N2/GH version but not even very quiet. Listen to the sound:
Mounting +++ It’s very easy to mount this fan with a screwdriver.
Cooling results +++ The Pentalpha APSK 156 in combination with N2/GH Papst fan reached 42° C and 44°C at 1,9 Vcore
General impression +++ The Pentalpha APSK 156 heatsink is available in several fan combinations and it’s a good combi with the known N2/GH Papst fan. Mounting and de-mounting with a screwdriver is very easy and the aluminium heatsink without copper got very good cooling results. This fan is also fit for using with Peltier Element !
