Arctic launches Alpine M1 passive CPU cooler

by on25 January 2016

For Intel LGA 115x CPUs with up to 47W TDP

Arctic has rather silently launched its new Alpine M1 passive CPU cooler designed to be used with Intel LGA 115x CPUs with TDP of up to 47W.

Since it can support up to 47W TDP Intel socket LGA 1150, LGA 1151, LGA 1155 and LGA 1156, this rather limits the list of the CPUs that can be cooled by Alpine M1 to most Core i3, Pentium and Celeron, as well as certain Core i5 CPUs.

To be precise, Arctic notes that CPUs with TDP of over 35W may reduce the clock during longer periods of full load. The design is also quite straightforward as it is practically just a simple aluminum heatsink that comes with a pre-applied MX-2 thermal paste. 

The precise dimensions of the Alpine M1 are 95x95x69mm and it weighs 508g, which should also make it fit in most PC cases.

According to Fanlesstech site which spotted the new passive Alpine M1 CPU cooler, it should already be available with a price of €12.99.
