Intel 10th and 11th generation Cores use LGA 1200 interface, while the next generation of Core will use LGA 1700 interface, the old radiator will not be able to be installed directly.
In this regard, the radiator maker Owl stated that it will introduce upgrade components for the old NH-U12A radiator for adaptation.
In response to online users, Owl said that the current relevant details are still being kept secret, but Owl will release upgraded components to ensure that users’ NH-U12A radiators can continue to be used.
The Intel Alder Lake processor uses the LGA1700 interface that is the same width but longer than the old model, which makes the old radiator unable to be used directly.
Now’s NH-U12A radiator is compatible with the LGA2066 interface and is larger than LGA1700. Therefore, this radiator can be adapted by upgrading components.
