Alphacool Unveils Eisbaer Solo Chrome DIY CPU Pump+Block

Alphacool today unveiled the Eisbaer Solo Chrome DIY pump+block, a variant of Eisbaer Solo that features a chrome mirror-finish body along three out of four sides, and the top, with a clear acrylic window covering one of the sides. You plumb your own coolant tubes and radiator to the contraption, which combines the functionality of a CPU water-block, a 70 l/h pump, and reservoir into one. The pump features an ultra low-noise ceramic bearing and operational speed of 2,600 RPM and a maximum head of 0.85 m. The package includes mounting brackets for LGA2066/2011, LGA115x, LGA1366, and AM4 sockets; in addition to some thermal compound. Available now, it is priced at 54.95€ including taxes.

That design looks familiar but this would be great for ITX builds

Well if that chrome is real metal and the housing that can help with dampening the noise of the pump. If is still plastic... Hell no !

I remember this unit when was released the noise of the pump were the main problem.

A fill point on a reservoir that sits on top of the CPU. How many people will try to fill the reservoir in situ? I can't bear to look.

no on top so when the case is upright you can run a tube into it and fill it... in that position it cant be used for a waterloop because the tubes come out the same way the fill-port is facing. So you have to angle it so that it's at the top of the loop, so that the air bubble comes into the resevoir, then when you flip it to fill it the air bubble runs right up the tubes again.



You can see the yoga that's necessary to fill this here:




if the fillport was on the side where the window is his life would 10x easier.

If i made an ITX loop with this it would have to have a t-line.

My ITX build would need it the way it is built... so I guess you would just prefer a multi-ported (reservoir/pump) combo unit?
