Arctic Alpine 12 LP CPU Cooler for Intel Socket LGA 1151 / 1150 / 1155 / 1156
Alpine 12 LP - Low Profile Intel CPU-Cooler
Top-Notch Price-Performance Ratio
Thanks to its radial heat sink and good fan design, the Alpine 12 LP 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 LP was on par with competition while offering a much smaller footprint at a more affordable price.
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 LP 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 LP 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 vibrations from the 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.
Low Profile Design
With an installation height of only 42.2 mm, the Alpine 12 LP is particularly suitable for small and narrow housings. It is easy to assemble and allows full access to all components close to the CPU. The compact Top-Blower CPU cooler also cools areas around the CPU socket and is predestined for HTPC and Mini-ITX cases.
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.
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.
Easy and Tool-free Installation
Thanks to the push pins, the installation is really easy. Additional tools are not needed to install the cooler.
