After testing some "giant coolers" today we reviewed a "normal sized" model, Alpine 11 Pro from Arctic Cooling, which has a conventional size, no heatpipes and a full-aluminum heatsink. Will it perform well in our tests?
From the box you can see the difference: it is far smaller than the one from other models we have tested recently. Even Thermaltake ISGC-100 box is bigger than this one. General aspect is good, in white and bright gray shadows, matching the idea behind the model name.
Inside the box we found the cooler with the fan preinstalled, installation manual and a bag with the clips that hold the cooler on the motherboard.
In Figure 3 you can have a general view of Alpine 11 Pro, with its 92 mm white fan inside a plastic cage. Its looks a little like the Intel stock cooler, but a little bit bigger.
