Arctic Intros The Alpine 64 PLUS CPU Cooler for AMD Users

Following the successful launch of Alpine 11 PLUS for Intel, ARCTIC has received a number of requests from AMD users for a compatible version with the same outstanding price-performance ratio. In order to fulfill this market demand, ARCTIC introduces the Alpine 64 PLUS to satisfy AMD power users.

The Alpine 64 PLUS provides a perfect cooling solution with its optimized heatsink to dissipate heat from the CPU. Its high performance 92mm PWM-controlled fan operates at a fan speed range of 600 to 2000 RPM - reaching a maximum cooling capacity of 100 Watts. With a noise level of only 0.4 Sone even at full load, you can hardly hear any sound from this cooler. Furthermore, it comes with a pre-applied ARCTIC MX-4 thermal compound and a transport-proof mounting system for quick installation and maximum user-friendliness.

Arctic To Sue AMD Over ''Fusion'' Brand Name

Swiss company Arctic (formerly Arctic Cooling), has used the brand name "Fusion" on its PSU products well before AMD's so-called "Fusion" APU family came to be. Arctic was smart enough to register its trademark, and is now piling up ammo to take AMD to court over alleged trademark infringement. Arctic acquired the brand name "Fusion" from Boot Up International Ltd., and its Fusion trademark is valid in Europe. Still a sizable market for AMD.

The interesting part is, AMD doesn't use "Fusion" as a brand name anywhere, except maybe its company slogan "The future is fusion", where "fusion" is used as a verb (fusion of various computing technologies to give a homogenous computing experience), and the company internally referring to its APU architecture as "Fusion", on the outside though, AMD brands its APUs under its Vision processor family, with no "Fusion" branding anywhere, except the company slogan.

Arctic Shows Off Freezer i30 and A30 CPU Coolers

Arctic showed of two nearly-identical CPU coolers, the Freezer i30 and Freezer A30. The two are identical till the point where the i30 is designed for Intel sockets only (LGA2011, LGA1155/1156), while the A30, for AMD sockets only (AM3+/AM3/AM2+/AM2). The two share a tower-type aluminum fin-stack heatsink design, capable of handling thermal loads of up to 320W.

The heatsink uses four 8 mm thick exposed-copper heat pipes that make direct contact with the CPU at the base, and pass through the heatsink, which is then ventilated by a 120 mm PWM-controlled fan with a fancy-looking frame. Rubber standoffs attach the fan to the heatsink dampening vibrations. The retention clips come attached to the heatsink out of the box. A 0.5g syringe of Arctic MX-4 compound is included, while the coolers' base don't come with the compound pre-applied.

Arctic Readies the Alpine 64 PLUS CPU Cooler

As revealed on its website, Arctic will next month be releasing a new, cost-conscious cooling solution, a CPU cooler called Alpine 64 PLUS which specifically supports AMD Socket 939, AM2(+), AM3(+) and FM1 processors.

The upcoming cooler measures 115 (L) x 98 (W) x 70 (H) mm, it weights 430 grams, and features an aluminum heatsink and a 92 mm FDB (Fluid Dynamic Bearing) fan operating at 600 to 2000 RPM. The Alpine 64 PLUS comes with pre-applied MX-4 thermal compound, is backed by a six-year warranty, and is set to become available on February 20th, priced at $14.95 / €11.27.

Arctic Readies the Accelero Xtreme 7970 VGA Cooler

The soon-to-be-released Radeon HD 7970 is certainly getting its share of waterblocks but there are also air-based custom coolers coming for AMD's flagship card. One of them is Arctic's Accelero Xtreme 7970 which measures 288 (L) x 104 (W) x 54 (H) mm, weights 653 grams, and features 84 aluminum fins, five 6 mm copper heatpipes, a copper base, and three 92 mm PWM fans that work at 900 to 2000 RPM.

Arctic's cooler comes with pre-applied MX-4 thermal compound, is CrossFireX compatible, and is backed by a six-year warranty. The Accelero Xtreme 7970 costs $97.95 / €73.83 and is set to become available on January 31st.

Arctic Intros S1 Plus Turbo Module

Arctic unveiled the latest accessory for its VGA coolers, the S1 Plus Turbo Module. Arctic releases "turbo module" accessories to provide active air-flow for its passive (silent) VGA coolers. The S1 Plus Turbo Module works with the recently-released Accelero S1 Plus VGA cooler. It's not much more than a 120 mm with a special mount hole spacing. The fan spins at speeds between 600 and 1000 RPM, with noise levels as low as 0.25 sone. Its package includes rubber bolts, that dampen vibrations, a Molex power adapter, and a syringe of Arctic MX-4 thermal compound (you'll probably need to remove the heatsink to attach this, and so you'll need fresh thermal compound). Backed by a six-year warranty, the Arctic S1 Plus Turbo Module is priced at about $12.
