ARCTIC Coolers fully Skylake Compatible

Posted: Dec 7, 2015 1:53 am | Cases, Cooling & PSU Press Releases | Stock Ticker: NASDAQ:INTC

Certain CPU coolers may damage Intel's current Skylake processors for socket LGA 1151 - this has just become known. The Background is obviously a too high pressure, which can cause damage.




With this official statement we would like to assure that ARCTIC coolers are not affected by these problems - and thus fully Skylake compatible.

All ARCTIC CPU Coolers complies concerning the released sockets with the mechanical specification from Intel. With our coolers there are no problems on Intel CPUs of the 6th generation (Skylake) for LGA 1151.


Depending on the parcel service drop heights of over 2 m can not be excluded. Therefore we recommend regardless of the CPU used to carefully evaluate the dispatch and the packaging used and to possibly mount larger and heavier CPU coolers by the end-user.
