A leaked image suggests that Intel may be releasing new stock coolers for its upcoming 12th Gen Core “Alder Lake-S” processors. It seems that Intel is getting on the RGB train; two of them have blue illumination around the fins. All are labeled “Laminar” for use with 65-watt boxed CPUs. The RH1 features an Intel Core i9 logo; the RM1 features i3, i5, and i7 logos; and the non-RGB RS1 features Pentium and Celeron logos. The RH1 features a taller and beefier-looking heatsink and screw design. If real, it will be interesting to see what the cooling performance is for these coolers.

Intel reportedly developed the Laminar series from feedback obtained from its partners and customers. There is a possibility that the chipmaker will roll out three different thermal solutions for its 65W Alder Lake parts.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
