Without doubt, one of the biggest problem areas for the environment is the professional segment of the market. It’s a huge consumer of all things elec-tricky. While a regular user might accept a small issue with a system – and wait patiently while repairs etc are effected by the store that supplied – mission critical installations have never heard of patience. KitGuru considers a new release from Arctic that aims to keep the polar caps covered in snow and ice.
It’s not often a cooler will come with a 6 year warranty, but the Arctic Alpine 20 PLUS CO has exactly that – and it’s being offered through a variety of resellers like eBuyer and Amazon at just over £10.
So what’s the deal?
Well the Alpine 20 PLUS CO is a low profile CPU cooler with specially selected Japanese bearings – designed specifically for the 24×7 processing environment found in modern server and workstation environments, the 92mm PMW fan supplied will provide a significant improvement over stock LGA-2011 coolers – according to Arctic marketing guru Brice Vandervoorde.
For speed and ease of fitting, the cooler comes pre-coated with multi-award winning Arctic MX-4 thermal compound.
According to Arctic, it is also quieter than Intel’s stock cooler – but we’re not sure how much of a benefit that will be in most situations.
If you need to run a server or workstation hard, and feel that Intel’s stock cooler isn’t up to par, then Brice suggests that you take a look at the Arctic Alpine 20 PLUS CO.
KitGuru says: Even if it’s just a few degrees, keeping your critical systems cooler and/or using less mains juice, has to be a good thing, right?
