ARCTIC Expands Alpine Cooler Series

It's getting frosty: With the addition of the new Alpine 23 CPU cooler, ARCTIC's diverse product range is expanding with new fan variants. Compact, solid, affordable - that's ARCTIC's Alpine series. The series expands with the Alpine 23, the further improved successor Alpine AM4. This new AMD cooler boasts a revised assembly system and long life span.

The Alpine 23 can simply be plugged into the existing AMD retention modules and screwed tightly; robust metal clips guarantee stability and safety. High-performance MX-2 thermal compound is pre-applied, making it easy to get started right out of the box. Thanks to radial heat sinks and a broad, PWM-controlled speed range, the compact CPU cooler offers sufficient performance as well as low noise levels at a very low price.
  • Powerful yet very compact radial heat sink
  • Wide speed range
  • Lower power consumption & low vibration
  • Lower coil temperature means longer service life
  • Simple and safe assembly
  • Pre-applied MX-2 thermal compound
Alpine 23 CO

The compact AMD CPU-cooler is also available in a CO variant for continuous operation. The Alpine 23 CO is equipped with premium quality Japanese dual ball bearings which allows for continuous operation 24/7 without the slightest compromise in performance. Dust and high temperature are affecting this bearing a lot less than generic sleeve or one ball bearings and thus make it the perfect choice when reliability is essential.

Pricing & Availability

Both the Alpine 23 and Alpine 23 CO are now available with an MSRP of 13.99 USD and 14.99 USD respectively.

I've got a chipset cooler more beefy than this looks. I swear they just bought a used Intel throw away heat sink off Ebay for 10 cents and attatched a different fan with more aggressive blade on it.

The Alpine series has been around for over a decade. I remember seeing them when I bought my first aftermarket heatsink: an Arctic Freezer 64 Pro. They looked like barely better than stock cooler replacements then, too.

The coldest thing about this release will probably be the market's reception to these coolers.

Genuine question: who are these coolers for, and are they the best choice in any scenario? I really like Arctic, I just can't help but assume they're losing money on these through materials and R&D...

Probably integrators who are buying low-power chips in tray quantities.

System integrators likely buy these in bulk directly from Arctic, as well as trays of CPUs (with no included heatsinks) from AMD.

Arctic is likely just diverting a few extra into retail boxes to maintain some shelf presence.
