  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Description

Improved cooling performance by new production processors 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. The Alpine 12 LP 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.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.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 html and Mini-ITX cases.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.

A shorter, quieter intel stock heatsink with a lower performance ceiling
This cooler is... Ok. It's not bad, you just need to know what you're getting. The aluminum fins are almost the exact same size and design as an intel stock heatsink, but the fan is lower profile and quieter at the same given rpm as the intel one. However, it caps out around 2200 rpm, whereas the intel goes up above 3000 rpm. While this means the max operating noise level is lower, it as well lowers it's cooling potential. I tested this on the i5 9400f. Running an x264 stress test, the stock heatsink would keep the temperature below 90 degrees c. I swapped to this cooler and ran the same test, and the temperature stayed below 100 c. Technically still within operating temp, but definitely way higher than i like. I did eventually undervolt the cpu and it was able to keep the temps below 80 c, which is much more acceptable. Basically, this is an inexpensive stock intel heatsink replacement that performs similarly, but has a lower profile and quieter fan. Take its tdp rating seriously and you'll be happy with it. After the undervolt, i am very happy with it as it's not just quieter, but less.... Whiny. Seriously, the fan on the intel stock cooler sounds like trash.
