Some Intel Alder Lake CPUs can benefit from the clever positioning of the cooler

As we get closer and closer to the release of Intel’s 12th-generation processors, interesting new information gradually surfaced.recent MSI Insider live Contains some interesting tidbits about the existence of at least two different Alder Lake-S chips, as well as potential problems that may arise when the 12th generation CPU is cooled using certain heat pipe coolers.

The first wave of 12th-generation CPUs are all high-end, unlocked “K” SKUs, and all contain Gracemont high-efficiency cores. However, for processors lacking these E-Cores, there seems to be a different chip configuration.
