Alphacool Presents Eiswolf 2 GPU-AIO for NVIDIA Ampere and AMD RDNA 2 GPUs

Alphacool today presents the Eiswolf 2 AIO solution (Reference design with backplate) for AMD Radeon RX 6800/6800XT/6900 and NVIDIA RTX 3080/3090 graphics cards. As with all of our AIO models, we only use copper radiators, however, for the first time, the Alphacool 360 mm NexXxoS ST30 all-copper radiator will be used in one of our GPU "all-in-one" solutions. For the fans, we now install the new Alphacool Aurora Rise 120 mm fan. The fan impresses with a max. statistical pressure of 3.17 mm/H2O and offers a max. air flow of 119.8m3/h, at a speed range of 0-2500rpm which can be controlled via PWM.

The decision to use the larger radiator in conjunction with our new fans provides a significant increase in cooling performance. The AIO is completed with the Eisblock Aurora water cooler, which actively cools all relevant components such as graphics memory and voltage converters in addition to the GPU chip. All components used (radiator, fan, cooler, DC-LT 2 pump) including connectors and hoses are part of the Alphacool custom cooling range and are therefore available separately. This means that we're not just offering a simple AIO solution here, but a real custom water cooling system (pre-assembled & pre-filled). Only the pump housing for the DC-LT 2 pump is a custom design and not available separately. Today we present only the Reference designs. In the near future, more solutions for graphics cards in custom design from various manufacturers will be available.
More pictures follow.

That pump setup is really cool, and I can see some very cool applications for that in the SFF space. As always, it's great to see Alphacool keep using serviceable and replaceable parts and making user-extensible loops.

I dunno. You could always buy the Eiswolf 2 and imagine a 3090 is attached :)

Had alphacool hardware before.

It's good, but not what I would pick for custom watercooling.

Yes, better than most AIOs with a fan swap, but that's a low bar.

Same experience here. I bought theAlphacool Eisbaer 240 a few years ago. It was amazing at keeping temps low but the pump developed a squeek a couple of months later. This wan't an isolated incident, I read many other users has similar issues.
I'm not a brand snob. I know problems happen and I'd probably buy their products again.

Eiswolf 2 has another pump inside than the older Eiswolf edition with tha aluminium part. And it has now a mini reservoir next to the pump. So thise problem are solved now. But you need to have a part of the radiator on a higher position than the pump. This should be observed with every AIO from every manufacturer. Otherwise, air can always migrate to the pump and damage it.

It was at the top of my case but the issue was widely know hence the pretty quick RMA.
My supplier had run out of your hardware at the sime so I had to settle for another brand.
No harm done, these things happen.

That's probably why they developed a new version of the pump ;)

That wasn't directly aimed at you. It was just a general comment, because many people still don't know this and it is often done wrong. It simply cannot be mentioned often enough.

I know it wasn't. Apologies for sounding blunt.

Ah.. no problem ;-) It is sometimes difficult to assess how someone understands something when you can't look each other in the face. I am absolutely not sensitive ;-) I am german.... so.. always serious and straightforward... :nutkick:

I like it. Easily the best designed AIO for GPUs I've seen so far. Should be pretty cheap and easy to expand this to the CPU as well.

I always liked Alphacool idea of quick disconnect, it made everything easier for AIO maintenance.

Nice to find the rep here. Has there been any improvement of fans since Eiswolf 2 AIO for the 2080Ti? Gotta say the Eiswolf 2 is good for the 2080Ti I gave away. The fans are not that strong though. I would opt for something with better static pressure. It does look pretty

Finally i've been waiting for them to release these for the RX 6000 series. Will consider this when I actually get my hands on a GPU so maybe next year lol.

That was a decent thing to do.

Thanks for the case info. Looks nice. I'll take a peek on the web.

Dont. Manta is a shitty case. It was chosen simply because the owner is a girl and she likes the exterior. The airflow is terrible

Of course, AFTER i go to the expense of ordering a custom loop just for my 3090
(That then went missing in a warehouse and has taken over a month for nothing)

We have new fans on the AIO. They are totally different. I would say, you can compare them with the best fans on the market, also with Noctua ;-) So, from the technical side, they have nothing to do with the fans you got with the Eiswolf 2 edition for the 2080TI.
