Arctic Introduces Alpine 12 Passive CPU Cooler for Intel Sockets
Arctic introduces the new Alpine 12 Passive CPU cooler for Intel socket processors offering efficient and silent cooling for Intel CPUs up to 47W TDP. The Arctic Alpine 12 Passive offers a fully fan-less and silent cooling solution that offers better cooling performance than Intel’s bundled stock cooler. The Alpine 12 Passive features black anodising that improves heat dissipation of the heat sink. The micro-porosity resulting from anodizing treatment on the heat sink surface optimizes heat exchange between the aluminium and the surrounding air.
The Arctic Alpine 12 Passive comes with pre-applied Arctic MX-2 thermal compound for a quick and clean installation. The Alpine 12 Passive is exclusively compatible with the Intel 115X sockets only with an easy mounting mechanism but totally reliable and fool-proof. The cooler has a dimension of 95mm x 96mm x 69mm (WLH) and weighs at 508 grams.
