Intel RM1 Stock Cooler for LGA1700 CPUs
The first review of the Intel stock cooler appears online.
The long-awaited refresh of the Intel stock coolers is coming with the 12th Gen Core 65W CPU series now set to launch in early January. Intel will be releasing three new stock coolers for Core i7, Core i5, and Core i3/Pentium SKUs, each with its own parameters and heat dissipation capacity.
The cooler which was tested by the team over at 163 is the mid-tier stock cooler called Laminar RM1. It is confirmed now that the blue ring around the fan is actually not LED illuminated. So this light-emitting feature will remain exclusive to the higher-end RH1 cooler.
The reviewer tested the CPU with a yet unreleased Core i5-12400 6-core processor. It is reported that the average power consumption of this CPU is 81W with a peak of 89W (with PL1/PL2 limits are set to 224W and 250W respectively).
In the AIDA64 8 minute FPU stress test, the CPU reached a peak temperature of 75°C and an average of 70°C (with 20°C ambient room temperature). The CPU fan speed was 3100 RPM which was described as audible (no noise measurements were conducted though).
Intel Laminar CPU coolers will be released alongside boxed 12th Gen Core Alder Lake-S desktop processors on January 4th.
