The Alphacool Eisblock XPX cooler is the newest innovation in the CPU cooler field, developed by Alphacool. The XPX cooler’s performance has gotten a major upgrade compared to its predecessor, the NexXxoS XP3. This was only possible because Alphacool completely re-developed the Eisblock XPX cooler from the ground up. For one, the fin structure was refined to 0.2mm and the fin count raised to 81 fins. This makes for a much larger cooling surface through which water can flow. In order to ensure the water is evenly distributed over the cooling fins, Alphacool developed and patented the “Ramp”. It ensures there is no turbulence in the water flow over cooling fins, which would lead to uneven water distribution over the cooling fins. Alphacool also used a double distributor to ensure less resistance. Paired with the ramp, this means the pump pressure plays little to no role in the performance of the cooler. You can turn the pump power down and run your system even more quietly without losing any cooling power.
The bottom area of the XPX Eisblock has been optimized for CPUs with large DIE, as the cooling surface onto which the water actually flows was enlarged to 34 x 32mm, meaning even large 10 core CPUs present no problem.
The bracket was also adjusted and simplified. This means new brackets for any socket type can be produced easily if required later. The aluminium frames also come in the same colours as the cooler itself. Alphacool has catered to users looking for customized design options, since the aluminium body which covers the entire cooler can be switched out for other models in different colours. Even the mounting kit can be colour-coordinated. For the illuminated Alphacool logo, alternative insets in different colours are available.
This way, every user can build a cooler in whatever colour they desire while also owning one of – if not the – most high-performance CPU coolers on the current market. Features • Highest cooling performance.

Watercooling for the PC has been around for years in some form or another, for at least as long as Scan have been in business, with basic physics defining why you want to use it. That means for air cooling, to cope with increasing temperature in the heatsink you need to move the air across it faster. That is why thermostatically controlled fans in your PC will turn faster the hotter something gets.

Anybody who has been near their share of computer systems will appreciate that not all systems make the same amount of noise. There are a number of reasons for why this is so. Firstly, a computer makes noise for different reasons. Generally, anything mechanical is going to make noise.
