Arctic Cooling presents the Alpine 20 Plus CO, a new low-profile processor cooler for Intel LGA2011 based workstations/servers. The cooler measures 99mm x 95mm x 80mm, it weighs 440g and features a 92mm PWM fan.
According to Arctic, this cooler keeps an Intel Core i7 3930K processor at 59.3°C versus 66°C with Intel's stock cooler. While the thermal performance doesn't really impress, the difference in noise level seems to be more substantial. Arctic says the stock cooler of the Intel Core i7-3930K has a noise level of 2.0 Sone, whereas the Alpine 20 Plus CO has a noise level of just 0.5 Sone.
ARCTIC proudly announces the Alpine 20 PLUS CO, a low profile CPU cooler dedicated to Intel LGA-2011 socket. It uses a high quality dual ball bearing from Japan to offer a lifespan up to 5 times longer than common sleeve bearing types. This low profile yet long-lasting CPU cooler is no doubt an excellent cooling solution for entry level servers.
Equipped with a 92 mm PWM fan with low noise impeller, the Alpine 20 PLUS CO offers a decent boost of cooling performance and lowers the noise level significantly compared to the box cooler. Thanks to the PWM control, it adjusts the fan speed according to the CPU temperature and thus the noise is always maintained at an absolute minimum.
The pre-installed spring-loaded screws guarantee hassle-free setup and ensure optimized contact pressure. Further we save you one installation step with the pre-applied award-winning MX-4 thermal compound which enhances the heat dissipation from the CPU.
The Alpine 20 PLUS CO comes with a six-year limited warranty and the MSRP is EUR14.50, excluding VAT.
