Arctic Alpine 12 LP 92mm PWM Fan Intel Low Profile CPU Air Cooler
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 ProcessThe 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 RangeThe 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 VibrationThe 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 DesignWith 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.
