LEPA LV12 CPU Cooler Launched in Europe

With high-end power supplies like the G1600, LEPA has already built a reputation in Europe. Also the chassis and fans of the young brand enjoy an increasing popularity. Now, the manufacturer enters another cooling section: The CPU cooler LV12 is the result of extensive research and development. The engineers designed a slim and compact heat sink which avoids compatibility issues with higher RAM modules while maintaining a high performance capability.

LEPA relies on a new technique for efficient air stream conduction: Small air vents improve the air circulation inside the heat sink and increase the heat dissipation rate. The heat pipes rest directly on the CPU so that hot spots can be eliminated quickly. Due to these techniques, LEPA engineers have been able to lower down the thermal resistance of the cooler to just 0.095°C/W.
