Thanks to its radial heat sink and good fan design, the Alpine 12 CO offers a lot of performance at a very low price point. In internal tests leveled to 28 dB, the cooling performance of the Alpine 12 CO exceeded the competition, in some cases by more than 10°C.*
* Tested with Prime 95, CPU Power Package 65 W
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.
