Arctic Cooling Alpine 64 CPU Cooler
A quiet serene desktop workstation or a performance pixel churning cooling mammoth? Two extremes of the PC cooling world I know, my point being, can a balance be maintained between them?
My current computer has a huge Thermalright XP-90 heatsink and 92mm fan cooling the CPU with an additional 3 80mm case fans. Which as you can imagine isnít the quietest. But because I always use headphones on and can sleep through the noise when left on overnight I donít see a need for change. But for some people sound is everything the slightest hum is an assault on their ears.
So for most people I believe they wish to maintain stability and have moderate to high end components while still keeping a reasonable level of noise. This is where my article comes in. In this review I am going to look over Arcticís Alpine 64. I believe this to be cooling with enough performance to handle all CPUs of the current time while maintaining a reasonable amount of noise. I will be testing its cooling performance against the huge performance monster of Thermalrightís XP-90 and the stock AMD cooler.
