Alpine 12 CO – Compact Intel CPU Cooler For Continuous Operation
Top-Notch Price-Performance Ratio
Thanks to its radial heat sink and good fan design, the Alpine 12 CO 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 CO exceeded the competition, in some cases by more than 10°C.*
- Improved cooling performance by new production process
- 0 dB mode; Japanese Dual Ball bearing allows continuous operation; extended life span
- Lower power consumption & minimum vibration
- Pre-applied MX-2 thermal paste
- Push pin for easy and tool-free installation
* Tested with Prime 95, CPU Power Package 65 W.
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 CO 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 CO 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 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.
For Continuous Operation
The premium quality Japanese dual ball bearing allows continuous operation 24/7 without the slightest compromise in performance. Dust and high temperature are affecting this bearing a lot less than generic sleeve or one ball bearings and thus make it the perfect choice when reliability is essential.
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.
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.
