Alphacool Debuts its First Compressor Cooler - The $1000 Eiszeit 1500 W

Alphacool is putting its hands on more exquisite - for the CPU cooling market - forms of cooling. The company has now launched their first foray into the compressor-based cooling market, with the Eiszeit 1500 W. As the name suggests, the Eiszeit delivers up to 1500 W cooling capability, much higher than most ordinary cooling solutions can handle. That is a mammoth cooling capacity, equaled by the Eiszeit's weight, which comes in at 29 Kg. But neither of these figures holds a candle to the Eiszeit's price - 960€, or around $1000.

The Eiszeit makes do with a pump of greater endurance and capacity than the usual D5 or DDC pumps, delivering a maximum flow-rate of 600 liters per hour from its 9-liter reservoir. The Eiszeit was designed to integrate well with Alphacool's existing cooling solutions. The Eiszeit uses standard G1/4" threads, also making it compatible with most liquid cooling setups in the market. The outgoing water temperature can be adjusted in 0.3 degrees Kelvin increments through the front display. There is also a built-in alarm, as well as a normal function indicator. The Eiszeit also features a convenient alarm for when temperatures fluctuate outside the normal parameters or when flow rate drops below a set minimum threshold.

I was reading this with keen interest, until I saw it comes with standard G1/4 fittings. This has to be a revelation in high end PC cooling!

Definitely getting my order!

Definitely interested in moving up from a custom loop, but would like to know about noise levels and thermal output -- where does the extracted heat go?

Just like any refrigerator it gets expelled by coils

If you're not dealing with extreme cold (like double digit Kelvin) why not just say 0.3 degrees Celsius... in fact, it is not technically correct to say degrees Kelvin.

My buzz kill moment.

I am glad I am not the only one who saw that and got bugged by it, not a chem major but close to it but this is high school chem knowledge :P

What happened with pelletier-effect coolers ? They were all the rage in the P4 era.

Too inefficient then, and there was no set standard in thread size nor the amount of QC we see today so there were leaks galore among the DIY crowd. I doubt they will ever make a come back now with hardware focusing on power and heat efficiency so much.

lol I can probably kiss a review goodbye then. The Hailea chillers are less expensive, but do need pumps and compressors that can withstand continuous load, which this should be designed for.

So hang on, this replaces rads, fans, res and pump??! Leaving you only with blocks required?? That's AMAZING!!

Those already lazy enough to have a mini-fridge in their office/gameroom should already be used to the annoying compressor hum, so this shouldn't bother them. The rest of us should probably keep our $1000... @Raevenlord - 959.95 euros ($1033.53) is the price, a little detail that might interest your readers more than it's weight (which Alphacool lists as 31 Kg, not 29). https://www.alphacool.com/detail/index/sArticle/21410 Maybe because the heavier one in the link is the European model (220V 50Hz). Finding more info took me about 5 minutes, perhaps in the future you could save us all the trouble of doing the research and just put the price right in the title -

As mentioned in their video the unit can be stored in another room/basement as the pump can handle it.

Throw away your office chair and put wheels under this thing, and a cushion on top.

Hey, Hood. The Eiszeit weighs 29 Kg net - I think that's the figure that matters for your choice of desk (or floor). The 31 you mention refers to shipping weight, I'd wager.
However, what you mean regards the pricing is correct. I will update the story with your info, and will look towards doing a better job next time =) Thanks :toast:

Wouldn't there be some concerns about condensation on the CPU block?

Still using my CoolIT SYSTEMS FREEZONE Thermoelectric CPU Cooler on Z170 mobo / i7 6700K. I keep making new brackets, So it's been working on all my CPU's since the good old P4 days. Keeps everything nice and COOL

troll?
Of course there is, you might want to do a quick Google search on the subject before spending $1000 on a cooling solution that is for a high end rig. this isn't for the daily driver or the every day gamer. would be like driving a 800HP car to work every day, not really practical to have a $1000 cooling system if you don't know why condensation forms ;)

Depends on how cold the actual coolant gets vs dew point at your specific location. All we know is the 1500 W dissipation number, but no delta coolant - ambient provided, so let's see. The industry standard is 25 °C.
