Arctic Alpine 12 Compact Heatsink & Fan, Intel 115x & 1200 Sockets, Fluid Dynamic Bearing, 95W TDP, 6 Year Warranty
Compact Intel CPU Cooler
Improved Cooling Performance by New Production Process
The high thermal conductivity of aluminum is fully retained by a new type of extrusion. This new production process creates a powerful yet very compact radial heat sink. The particularly thin cooling fins of the new Alpine are fanned out in a Y-shape. This increases the surface area of the heat sink and therefore the cooling capacity.
0 dB Mode
The Alpine 12 is able to switch into silent passive mode when PWM signal is below 5 % due to its new motor. This allows working at your PC in complete silence without any unwanted noise.
Lower Power Consumption & Minimum Vibration
The new Alpine 12 is powered by an updated motor and runs much more efficiently than its predecessors. Due to sinus-magnetizing the new motor creates just 5 % of the vibrations from commutation of a regular DC-motor. These factors contribute towards saving energy, lowering the coil temperature and reducing vibrations to a minimum without compromising performance.
Extended Life Span
A 10 °C lower motor temperature roughly doubles the life span of a fan.
The new ARCTIC motor has a four times longer service life through its low coil temperature.
High Quality Bearing
Thanks to an alloy/lubricant combination developed in Germany, friction within the bearing is reduced and greater efficiency is achieved. As a result, there is less heat development as well as less bearing noise, which means you can enjoy a longer service life from your fan.
Pre-applied MX-2 Thermal Paste
The pre-applied, high-performance MX-2 thermal compound ensures fast and clean installation.
Easy and Tool-free Installation
Thanks to the push pins, the installation is really easy. Additional tools are not needed to install the cooler.
