Arctic presents Alpine M1 Passive CPU cooler

Having a fanless CPU cooler is really nice – there’s no noise made by spinning fan blades and there’s absolutely no risk of fan failure. But is it easy to find and use one such cooler now in an era of high-performance hot chips?

Apparently, yes – Arctic has unveiled a new passive CPU cooler that is called Alpine M1 Passive. The new cooler is actually a large aluminum heat sink that comes with pre-applied thermal paste and that needs to be attached to a CPU. The Alpine M1 Passive measures 95 x 95 x 69 mm (L x W x H) and weighs 508 grams.

Unfortunately there’s a catch but this is to be expected – the Alpine M1 Passive is designed for Intel LGA 115x processors only and can cool chips with TDP of up to 48W, which makes it suitable for Celeron, Pentium, Core i3 and energy-efficient Core i5 processors only of the LGA 1150 and LGA 1151 generations. Even then the Alpine M1 Passive is a nice piece of hardware to have.

The new passive CPU cooler costs EUR 13 and is available now.
