Black spraying gives the product a solid look, although without it it could be done for the sake of maximum efficiency of heat removal for this design. A small 92 mm fan is "hidden" under a dense array of aluminum radiator plates. It can be used both in the normal position and on top (if the dimensions of the body allow), or replaced with a more productive 120-mm. The latter seems to be the optimal solution, especially from the position of overclocking, but the highlight of Black Ridge — compact size — is lost. By default, the cooler takes 140 mm in length, 120 mm in width and 47 mm in height, and weighs 407 g, taking into account the weight of the fan.

Cooler has a copper Nickel-plated base and six copper heat pipes with a diameter of 6 mm.the method of direct contact of tubes with the processor cover is not used because of their large number, as well as a small area of crystals of modern processors. By the way, EKL/Alpenföhn Black Ridge is compatible with the CPU and motherboards Intel LGA1150 LGA1151, LGA1155, LGA1156 and AMD FM1, FM2, FM2+, AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, AM4. When using a complete fan, the maximum allowable level of TDP of the processor is 95 watts. In other operating scenarios described above, this value is higher.

The fan supplied with the cooling system is based on a hydrodynamic bearing. The thickness of the propeller body is 15 mm, the connection connector is 4 — pin. The radiator is blown at 800-2800 rpm, with a maximum air flow of 80 m3 / h, and the noise level varies from 14 to 37.6 dBA.

Some Western European stores offer black Ridge cooler under the brand EKL, others - Alpenföhn. The price range is from €42,50 to €44,99.
