Improved Cooling Performanceby New Production ProcessThe 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.Lower Power Consumption & Minimum VibrationThe new Alpine 12 is powered by an updated motor and runs much more efficiently than its predecessors. Due to sinus-magnetizing the new motor creates just 5 % of the vibrations from commutation of a regular DC-motor. These factors contribute towards saving energy, lowering the coil temperature and reducing vibrations to a minimum without compromising performance.Extended Life SpanA 10 C lower motor temperature roughly doubles the life span of a fan.The new ARCTIC motor has a four times longer service life through its low coil temperature.High Quality BearingThanks to an alloy/lubricant combination developed in Germany, friction within the bearing is reduced and greater efficiency is achieved. As a result, there is less heat development as well as less bearing noise, which means you can enjoy a longer service life from your fan.Pre-applied MX-2 Thermal PasteThe pre-applied, high-performance MX-2 thermal compound ensures fast and clean installation.Easy and Tool-free InstallationThanks to the push pins, the installation is really easy. Additional tools are not needed to install the cooler.
