Intel would also change its fans

Intel would also change its fans

48 hours ago one of our sources sent us some images of what would be the future fans of the Alder Lake-S range. Of course, we have to be careful because we could not cross-check this information. It should also be noted that Intel has gradually removed its radbox from a large part of its CPUs. The bad tongues will say that these fans were so ugly that it was not a big loss. However, seeing the rise in TDP of Intel CPUs, it seems more logical to think that Intel didn’t have an interesting solution to propose without blowing up the costs.

Alder Lake Radbox

The images we have in front of us are proposals for the future fans that will equip the box versions of some Alder Lake-S. These would be called Intel Laminar RH1, RM1 and RS1 and would be for 65W CPUs. It is difficult to draw conclusions from this image but we can notice 2 important things:

  • First of all, the aesthetics are a little better worked than the old versions that were really starting to show their face. The left version in particular is similar to what AMD does on some of its series.
  • The fixation of the cooling unit seems to adopt the same system of plastic pins that are inserted in the motherboard… And this is not really a good news because this system is not really a model of reliability especially when the system that is equipped with it travels before arriving at the final customer.

The old Intel cooling unit…Which we will all miss :-)!


In short, this rumor may seem anecdotal for most of us but if it is true, it is another sign that, down to the details,this 12th generation will mark a break in the history of Intel CPUs
