Alpine 12

Compact Intel CPU-Cooler

Top-Notch Price-Performance Ratio

Thanks to its radial heat sink and good fan design, the Alpine 12 offers a lot of performance at a very low price point. In internal tests leveled to 28 dB(A), the cooling performance of the Alpine 12 exceeded the competition, in some cases by more than 10°C.*

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.

Wide RPM Range

The Alpine 12 features a new motor technology with a very wide, PWM-controlled RPM range. This keeps the noise level at a minimum while guaranteeing maximum cooling performance when needed.

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.
