ARCTIC Alpine 11 Passive review

Yes, it does look spectacular. Our good friend Thony was able to sample ARCTIC's Alpine 11 Passive, and the most affordable fanless CPU cooler offers solid performance.

Tested with the 35W Celeron G1820T and i3-4350T, as well as the 53W Pentium G3258, temperatures barely reach 50°C playing a 1080P MKV file for 2 hours. Even 60 minutes of Handbrake video-encoding run just fine. The i3 and Pentium experience thermal throttling only running OCCT tests.
