Alphacool is not as well known for their all-in-one liquid CPU coolers, but they are starting off 2018 with a bang! At CES 2018 they showed us their brand new Eisbaer Extreme! This all-in-one liquid CPU cooler is one of the coolest we’ve ever seen, but it backs that up with performance as well!
Starting off with looks we have a very unique block design, this is a full fledged CPU block, not pump on top of it or anything like that. The block is clear and has a very cool ring of RGBs that will illuminate it perfectly. Alphacool will actually be selling the RGB rings as an accessory as it fits their Eisblock XPX CPU block.
Moving on top the radiator, the version we saw was a 280 mm version, but Alphacool tells us there will likely be 240 mm and even a 360 mm version. The radiator and its housing seems to be thicker than your typical AiO radiator, so you can expect some pretty good performance. When it comes to fans Alphacool has worked with be quiet to have their Silent Wings 2 fans come with this kit. If you are wondering where the pump and reservoir are they are up in the radiator unit.
There is also a section of RGB LEDs lining each side of the radiator unit. The design of this RGB strip is not final, Alphacool tell us they are going to make the actual diffusion of the LEDs better. Being that this is an Eisbaer unit it is expandable too, so you can add other parts to the loop.
No word yet on pricing, but expect the Eisbaer Extreme to be available very soon.
