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 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.
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.
