Gigabyte confirms existing CPU coolers can work with Intel Alder Lake

51 Views

The official word from Intel is that its 12th Gen Core processors based on Alder Lake will arrive in the second half of this year, leaving us to speculate a tighter time frame. Our assumption has been that Alder Lake will drop sometime early in the fourth quarter, but perhaps an earlier release is planned, based on an update Gigabyte made to its Aorus Waterforce X all-in-one CPU liquid cooler manual.

In the mounting bracket section of the manual (PDF), Gigabyte added instructions for installing the cooler on Intel’s not-yet-released socket LGA 1700. That’s the socket Alder Lake will use, with support for a new chipset family—almost definitely Z690 at the high end, unless Intel throws us a curveball.
