With the new Alpine 12 and Alpine AM4 series, we are updating our portfolio of cost-effective CPU coolers.
The Alpine 12 series is designed for the 115x sockets from Intel, while the Alpine AM4 series is exclusively compatible with the namesake AM4 socket from AMD. Alpine AM4 series, except the Passive, are also backward compatible with AM3+, AM3, AM2+, AM2, FM2 and FM1.
The Alpine 12 Passive and Alpine AM4 Passive, available since summer 2018, are now being supplemented with the launch of the Alpine 12 and Alpine 12 CO. Further versions for AMD and Intel will follow shortly. The older versions Alpine 11, Alpine 20, Alpine 64 and Alpine M1 are end-of-life products that will no longer be produced.

Newly developed heatsinks
All new Alpine CPU coolers feature newly developed heatsinks.
The passive versions achieve an optimized heat dissipation to the environment through the black anodization of the heatsink. This noticeably increases the cooling performance in a fanless system.
The actively cooled Alpine 12 and AM4 models in turn have a new radial heatsink. The high thermal conductivity of the aluminum is fully retained in a new type of extrusion.
The novel production process makes it possible to produce a powerful and at the same time very compact heatsink. The particularly fine cooling fins of the new Alpine coolers are fanned out in a Y-shape. This increases the surface area of the heatsink and also improves the cooling performance.
Affordable CPU cooler for AMD and Intel
All actively cooled Alpine 12 and Alpine AM4 models use our advanced, PWM-controlled fan technology. As a result, all Alpine coolers run very efficiently, with low power consumption and at the same time within a very wide RPM range. In addition, the new Alpine series supports a 0 dB mode – if the a PWM signal drops below 5%, the fans turn off, ensuring absolutely silent cooling of the CPU.
All new Alpine 12 and Alpine AM4 CPU coolers are delivered with pre-applied MX-2 thermal compound. This guarantees a quick and easy installation.
