Alpine 64 GT: Cost-Effective Ultra Quiet AMD CPU Cooler OC3D Official Press Release logo
 
The Swiss cooling solutions provider ARCTIC COOLING today announced the launch of the Alpine 64 GT. This new cooler is designed for AMD CPU, offering a cost-effective and ultra quiet solution for system builders and distributors.
 
High price-performance ratio
Unlike other low cost coolers, the cost-effective Alpine 64 GT comes with high quality components, making it a complete thermal and noise management solution. The pre-applied high performance thermal compound MX-2, an optimised heatsink and an 80mm fan provide satisfactory cooling performance. The Alpine 64 GT is extremely quiet, generating only 0.3 Sone of noise compared with 0.8 Sone from a standard cooler. Moreover, with the PWM function, the fan runs just at the necessary speed, resulting in lowest noise level possible at sufficient cooling capacity. Together with the low noise impeller and the patented fan holder, noise level can be kept minimal at all time.

Arctic Cooling Alpine GTEasy installation
With the user-friendly design, the Alpine 64 GT can be installed within minutes. Remove the standard cooler, place the Alpine 64 GT on the CPU, lock two lugs with the retention module, and you are ready to enjoy the quietness brought by this
cooler.

Dimensions: 100 L x 84 W x 64.5 H mm

I remember the day when texts were 20p a piece and I used to rack up £400+ a month in texts alone. o2 (or BT Cellnet as it was at the time) used to block my mobile every month because they thought I wasn't going to pay the bill.

Then along came Genie with unlimited free texts and boy did I take them for a ride. Me + a handful of others were prolly soley responsible for their swift demise :p

I'm on Orange PAYG, top-up £10 a month for 300 free texts. Now I still usally have like 150 texts left after the month has ended but instead of letting me keep them until i top-up they get rid of them.

Orange's new advert sucks aswell, makes no sense

Me too, but i also got 700 off peak minutes to orange phones and £4 of on net access, but that's a crock as it takes about one pounds worth of time to load each page.

Been with o2 for over 8 years myself and despite having ups-and-downs with them they have been overall a decent network.

I wouldn't dream of changing now tbh.



I have been running a Blackberry with O2 and am loving it. So I shall be sticking with them for some time.

Wish I had used them sooner really. :)

LOL I remember calls being 60p a min! 1p a second lol. 'HellowhereareyouokI'llbetherein5' was probably the extent of my conversations then!

Me and mates had Genie sims too, we used to spam people with blank texts and cause their phones to lock up for aaaages hahahahahaha. I used to get warning text messages through saying if I continued the abuse of the free texts I'd be restricted to 500 texts a month...

Anyway, weren't BT Cellnet and Genie part of the same thing which were bought out by MMO2 (part of Telephonica) now just O2?

Who cares.

Orange suck.

I've been with Vodafone for 2 years now and currently get 9000 minutes (using stop the clock), 500 texts, unlimited HSDPA internet and accidental damage insurance for £42 a month, aswell as my upgrades being free (last upgrade was a Tytn 2). They even phone me up if i'm over or under spending to sort me a better price plan.

I was with T-Mobile for a year and hated them, customer service was crap and so were the price plans. My GF is with them now and nothing has changed, they wanted £120 to upgrade her phone to an LG Viewty 2 months early, Vodafone offered me a Nokia N95 8GB for £50 6 months early.

aye, genie was just a variation on the bt cellnet network, which is now basically "o2 online", which i believe most PAYG people use. the one whr u top up X amount a month and get X amount of texts.
