Arctic Releases Cheap Socket LGA2011 CPU Cooler

Arctic has announced the arrival of a new CPU cooler, the Alpine 20 Plus. The cooler is only compatible with the LGA 2011 socket, but works for both desktop versions of the Intel Core i7 as well as the Xeon CPUs that drop into the LGA 2011 socket.

The cooler itself is made from an aluminum block, which has a number of aluminum fins through which air is pushed by a 92 mm fan. The fan has a rotational speed that can vary from 600 RPM all the way up to 2200 RPM and is PWM controlled. The cooler weighs 440 grams and measures 99 x 95 x 80 mm.

Arctic's Alpine 20 Plus cooler has an MSRP of $14.50 and should already be available at select retail stores. The unit also comes with a six year manufacturer warranty period.
