Arctic LGA1700 coolers are compatible with Intel’s next-gen desktop platform, the company confirms
Intel might not have officially disclosed its desktop Core series plans for the upcoming year, but it’s clear that cooling companies have nothing to hide at this point. Several leaks from companies like Noctua, Azza, and even the full socket design itself have affirmed its striking similarity to the LGA1700 in terms of size and potential compatibility with the current desktop socket (LGA1700).
Arctic has now affirmed that all of their LGA1700 coolers are already suitable for the new socket. Furthermore, the company has confirmed that the forthcoming CPUs will bear the name Arrow Lake, thus putting any Meteor Lake-S rumors to rest. While Arctic hasn’t specified the exact release date for the new socket, they did mention that Arrow Lake is set to launch next year.
Compatibility guaranteed! 🤝
Next year @Intel will release the new Arrow Lake processors with the LGA1851 socket. We guarantee you now that all coolers that are compatible with LGA1700 will also be compatible with LGA1851. 🤞#cooledbyarctic #intel #lga1700 #lga1851 #future #new pic.twitter.com/kBwmlq1IzS

Undoubtedly, it’s noteworthy that the Intel LGA-1851 platform won’t require a cooling and memory upgrade. Both platforms utilize the same socket design and memory technology. When transitioning to Intel’s Core Ultra 200 desktop CPUs, which is most likely the name of the new desktop series, one will need to acquire a new CPU and motherboard.
