Intels nya mellanklassprocessorer i Core i5 familjen är fortfarande ett flertal månader in i framtiden. Men marknaden börjar redan göra sig redo för den nya LGA1156 plattformen som processorerna kommer att jobba på. Vi har vid flera tillfällen sett skymtar av P55-baserade moderkort, som blir den första LGA1156 styrkretsen, och nu är det dags för de första kylflänsarna. Arctic Cooling har tillkännagivigt sin Apline 11 serie av CPU-kylare som just är utvecklad för LGA1156 sockeln. Kylarna har även stöd för Intels LGA775 plattform och verkar precis som processorerna komma med ganska konkurrenskraftiga specifikationer.

Alpine 11 Series Ultra Quiet Coolers for Intel Socket 1155/1156

To cope with the future demand for the up-and-coming Intel socket 1156, the Swiss low noise cooling solution provider ARCTIC COOLING today announced the launch of the new Alpine 11 series. This new CPU cooler series consists of three models – Alpine 11 Pro, Alpine 11 and Alpine 11 GT to target different purchasing groups.

The Intel Core i5 for socket 1156 is expected to be released in Q3. Multi-compatible with both the new sockets and 775, this new Alpine series is definitely a perfect choice for those who would like to go for a future-proof cooler.

Highly price competitive cooler – Alpine 11 GT and Alpine 11
These two cost-effective Alpines are targeted for users who look for a quiet and efficient cooler. At a reasonable price, the coolers feature some high performance components. The Alpine 11 GT and Alpine 11 are equipped with an 80mm and a 92mm PWM fan respectively. With PWM function, the fan runs at the necessary speed in order to offer sufficient cooling at the lowest possible noise level. The low noise impeller keeps the fans as quiet as 0.3 / 0.4 Sone – even at full speed.

The Alpine 11 GT and Alpine 11 are designed with an optimised heatsink and the preapplied MX-2 to offer optimal heat dissipation. The Intel push pins guarantee easy and quick installation. With these outstanding features, the Alpine 11 GT and Alpine 11 offer the best price/performance ratio for mainstream users.

Designed for silent-enthusiasts and system builders – Alpine 11 Pro
The Alpine 11 Pro is for users who look for an extremely quiet, high performance and easy to install cooling solution. The Alpine 11 Pro features a more sophisticated acoustic design than the stock cooler. Thanks to the patented vibration absorption and fan holder, the cooler is barely audible – only 0.4 Sone at 2,000 rpm – a standard that the stock cooler cannot compete. With a 92mm PWM fan and a bigger heatsink design, the maximum cooling capacity of the Alpine 11 Pro achieves 95 Watts.

Moreover, the unique mounting system is very user-friendly and provides an absolutely transport safe solution. The cooler is fastened by screws, no back plate is necessary nor has the mainboard to be disassembled. The whole installation can be done in less than a minute. This is a totally peace of mind solution for Intel users.

The Alpine 11 series comes with a 6-year limited warranty. They will be available in May 2009. The MSRP is: Alpine 11 GT – US$8.00 and 5.60€ / Alpine 11 – US$10.25 and 7.10€ / Alpine 11 Pro – US$14.35 and 9.90€ (excl. VAT).
