The Alpine 64 Pro features a lot of high standard components. The 92mm fan comes with PWM function, which controls the fan speed, and thus, lowers the noise level to a minimum according to the CPU load. The PWM function guarantees sufficient cooling at the lowest noise level possible and saves energy simultaneously. Together with the patented fan case, low noise impeller and the vibration absorption, the Alpine 64 Pro is as quiet as 0.4 Sone at full speed (2,000 rpm).
Apart from the PWM fan, the Alpine 64 Pro also features an optimised heatsink and extremely low resistance thermal compound MX-2 for efficient heat dissipation from the core. The above high quality components offer excellent thermal and noise control management. Without a doubt, the Alpine 64 Pro is one of the most cost-efficient cooler of its class.
