Product Overview Alphacool‘s kits of the latest generation, tailored to customer requirements!
The Alphacool complete cooling kits consist of carefully chosen Alphacool products which maximize usability for you. The “Cool Answer” complete cooling kits are the answer to both small cooling requirements as well as large system with multi-core processors and/or extremely over-clocked systems. Alphacool can look back on more than 10 years of experience, resulting in ideally configured cooling systems.
The current kits differ in the reservoir/pump combination and in radiator size respectively radiator thickness. The LT/ST kits consist of the latest Alphacool DC-LT pump in combination with a 5.25” slot-in reservoir. A 30mm thick full-copper radiator from the ST series completes the LT/ST cooling kits.
DDC/XT kits offer the proven Laing-DDC pump with a higher pump performance as well as a 45mm thick XT radiator for additionally improved cooling power.

At the core of the water cooling system: The CPU water block
The new Alphacool NexXxoS XP³ has risen to the top of the water cooling charts (as of September 2012, source: Xtremesystems water cooling charts) and has beaten the competition. The patented cross-slot technology of the popular NexXxoS XP was developed even further, improving both flow rate as well as cooling performance. The water block is compatible with all current sockets on both Intel and AMD Mainboards. Two mounting brackets are included with the water block and can be exchanged without having to disassemble the water block.

The motor of the water cooling system: The pump
Alphacool has implemented a new concept for pump installation with the DC-LT by enlarging the proven Repack reservoir and integrating the pump into the rear of the reservoir. The DC-LT pump has an impressive pressure head of 2.2m at 12V and is fully functional even at a water temperature of 65°C. The pump has a very low power consumption of only 4.9W and can be connected directly to the Mainboard via a 3-Pin plug, just like a fan. With the included adapter you can run the pump with 5V or 7V to reduce the volume.

The tank of the water cooling system: The reservoir
Having been redesigned, the Repack reservoir for DC-LT pumps is a true optical highlight. Up to four 5mm LEDs (not included) can be integrated to create unique lighting effects within your system. Filling is quick and easy with the top-side filling opening. At the rear, up to 2 DC-LT pumps (only one included) can be installed. This allows for extra pump performance to be added at a later point in time, whilst maintaining whisper-quiet operation.

Heat dissipation for the water cooling system: The radiator
Alphacool‘s NexXxoS XT45 Full Copper radiators are a completely new development from Alphacool and offer the unique feature of copper fins, copper channels and copper chambers. Up until now it was standard to manufacture only the fins from copper, and all other components from brass. But Alphacool went one step further! As a result, the new Alphacool radiators established themselves as the new standard for high quality and cooling performance in many tests. Depending on the set configuration, different radiator sizes are included (Single, Dual, Triple or Quad).

Connection elements in the water cooling system: Tubing and fittings
Alphacool utilizes the large 13/10mm tubing size for the Cool Answer kits, allowing maximum flow rates. The “deep black” fittings in combinations with the clear tubing create an elegant high-end look. The other components included with the Cool Answer kits are coolant, fans and an ATX bridging plug. The proven coolant CKC Cape Kelvin Catcher is used undiluted and filled directly into the system. For the radiators, suitable quiet fans are included. During the first filling of the cooling loop, the ATX bridging plug can be used to start the power supply without turning on the computer to allow the pump to run for de-aeration.

Mounting and expandability
After installation of the CPU water block reservoir and radiator, the included tubing must be cut to suitable lengths (e.g. with a tubing cutter or Stanley knife, not included) and installed. Additional components such as mainboard or graphics card water blocks can always be integrated into the cooling loop later. Hence the Alphacool Cool Answer complete cooling kit is the ideal starting point for a successful start into the world of computer water cooling.
We offer three different types of kits: Economy, Business and First Class. Just as in air travel, each class has its very own appeal!

Watercooling
Date Issued: 19th Jun 2008

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.

Reviews
Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good and bad points. This has good quality compression fittings, 30mm radiator not 45mm. The bottled water is good because it comes with a nozzle that prevents spillage. However the negatives: The reservoir is very poorly designed, it is virtually impossible to fill the reservoir up to 100% since the inlet is recessed down below the marker. When the reservoir is not filled up to 100% the pump will drag in air and become very noisy (overheat then break). You are able to purchase a second pump, and in place of the pump is a cap. However the cap on my reservoir leaked, and scan was very unhelpful with this. To rectify this I had to purchase another pump, costing another £20 (which comes with no screws and no rubber grommet, causing the pump to be noisier). Another problem that will need to be rectified is the amount of water in the reservoir. To do this I had to purchase a y bracket, with two more compression fittings and a plug, this will then leak the air out and allow for another inlet. This cost another £20, making this whole system cost around £160. With all these problems scan had very poor customer service, ignoring emails and not helping. Recommendations: This is a good product once it is up and running, however I recommend purchasing: -30mm radiator with 2 120 fans. -reservoir that connects to g1/4 tubing -a pump that connects to g1/4 tubing. - tubing that is g1/4 - about 6 compression fittings. - and a chipset block. -distilled or purified water (it doesn't really make a difference). You should be able to get it cheaper purchasing them separately. 15 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good kit for first time water cooling or if on a budget! This is a very good kit, especially for the price. Are are some really high quality parts in this kit like the CPU water block, the compression fittings are very nice an the radiator is nice and open for good airflow. Although in the product overview it says the radiator is an XT45 which is a 45mm thick radiator, this is wrong as included was a 30mm thick radiator. I can't comment on the two included fans as i used some corsair sp120 fans which i run at 3v although the specs of the fans seem good. The reservoir is decent, so is the pump although the pump is noisy unless you run it at 5v like I'm doing. On an after market air cooler my AMD FX8350 under load would reach 58c but now under load it reaches 30c. When i over clocked it to 4.5ghz it stays under 40c which is very good. Overall a great kit but when i expand my loop to the GPU i will be purchasing a different pump and reservoir. 08 January 2015

Answer: 
Hi, you would need a GPU block, more hose fittings, and maybe more water.

Check which GPU you have, and find out whether it can be watercooled, it might be hard to remove its fan.
