The multi-talent from Alphacool, the Eisbaer Pro Aurora CPU AIO has received an upgrade! It is now available with the extremely powerful NexXxos HPE radiator. This improvement enables even processors with particularly large CPU cores to be cooled even more effectively. The included mounting kit allows high compatibility with all common sockets, including the new AMD AM5.

The NexXxos HPE radiator uses the same materials as the previous NexXxos models, but goes a step further technically. Due to the condensed internal structure, the number of water channels and copper fins has been increased. Thus, a larger volume of water is in direct contact with the cooling fins and the heat transfer is improved enormously. Alphacool continues to use the Rise Aurora 120 mm fan. The fan, which can be controlled via PWM, is almost silent at 800 rpm, but still offers a good air throughput together with a high static pressure. The cooler as well as the fans feature digitally addressable RGB LEDs, allowing for a brilliant illumination.



As usual, all components used come from Alphacool's classic DIY water cooling range and some are even used for enterprise servers products. The Eisbaer Pro HPE Aurora 360 CPU AIO is a powerful all-in-one water cooling system that is as easy to install as an AIO, but offers the performance of a pre-assembled and pre-filled custom loop.

Ah the Eisbaer. The AIO that got me into Watercooling. I still have the head from my original. This looks insanely cyberpunk and paired with one of those nice brushed aluminum boards like the MSI Ace series would be beautiful. I like that these are coming just in time for AMD 7900XTX I want the As Rock Aqua card.

Yeah, I have mine too. Still a solid performer even after 5 years.

I really wish these were available in New Zealand. Just unrealistic to import one.

Would these be safe to mount on the bottom of the case?

Yes but that would be counter intuitive. Exhausting the heat into the case is not a good idea with today's parts. You would even have better performance mounting at the front as exhaust but your space will heat up.

Would these be safe to mount on the bottom of the case?
You could make it safe to do so
I'm confused by what kapone is saying above as i think he's misunderstood your question so i'll try and answer both of you at once

1. Best situation is top exhaust, second is front intake
2. Bottom intake is doable as well, but you need to take care of air bubbles in the pump
3. Oh hey a G1/4 fill port right in the pump letting you totally do exactly that


It may be fiddly or a pain in the butt, bit with a fill port you can get rid of any and all air bubbles, or even add something to that location - literally any water-cooling fitting that can trap some air will prevent it being trapped in the pump


I wanna know how this AIO would handle an average GPU block added into the loop, it's no D5 pump but it shouldnt need to be with the bare minimum fittings and a single rad

Combine this with a block for something in the 150W range like my GTX 1080, and it should work fairly well

Between the cpu and gpu coolers: one IS going to exhaust into the other. You have to go out of the way to avoid it, or strictly use blower gpu with a cpu tower cooler.
Depending on how you use the PC, pick the lesser evil.
FYI, it's an Eisbaer Aurora doing the bottom intake. Up top is a Celsius S36.

Alphacool did something so simple... why haven't the other guys done it?
That window is handy for watching the fluid level so you don't dry up the pump. You also know that the pump is lower than said window... bottom intake is a more viable option with Eisbaers.

Agreed on the window, damned handy for knowing you need to top it up and when to stop
EK have those super small drain valves with a G1/4 fitting in them that would be fantastic to slap into one of these blocks for easy refilling and clonk, cap goes on
1670553592087.png

Y'know, if EK didnt want three testicles for one

100C on a CPU could have a 40C fluid temp resulting in 30C air from 21C ambients
30C air blowing over components is a ton better than no air (since that no air will heat up much higher over time anyway)


If only the rad had a drain/fill port too, but it does make sense to simply raise the pump/block up high and fill that way when its out of the system

I have a 6800XT and you would be surprised at the amount of heat that comes out of the top of the case when Gaming. I now have the 7000D airflow and have the GPU water cooled on a 420 rad (from my original Eisbaer). This AIO was created for CPUs like the 7950X and 13900K and probably to exhaust as much heat away from the chip as possible. That says to me that the heat from the rad should never be exhausted into the case.

I have had this cooler before and you need to add at least a res to account for the extra heat. Some of Alphacool's blocks come with pumps in them as well but you would need more liquid to accommodate for the heat the GPU would produce. Even a small chip like the 6500XT can run plenty hot. The best thing about this though is the fact that the res sits on top pf the CPU meaning all of the volume of that liquid goes into cooling the chip. The GPU I ran my original with was the Vega 64. That is not a good example though as the design of the Vega card lends itself heavily to watercooling.

I have a 3090, i know how bad the heat gets - the key is that moving hot air is always better than no moving air at all
There is no such thing as "should never" and none of these staples should ever be viewed so simply, you need to find out WHY they suggest those things

Sure, 5C higher case temps will raise air temps 5C

But when the 3080 FE was tested and people whined about the top-exhaust fan cooking their CPUs testing found it lowered CPU temps because it was moving air and proved "common knowledge" wrong

FE wasn't dumping as much heat inside PCs because of that 2-way design.
If there's less heat being dumped in the case, you get lower case ambient, and that in turn, lowers cpu thermals.

With a gpu AIO/CLC or gpu only custom loop, one can take what's usually the most power hungry component and dump its waste heat directly out the top of the case = lower case ambient, unless you don't have air conditioning.
... which is why top mounted cpu liquid cooling - or rather the popularity of it - has me scratching my head.

FE still added "hot air" but again it's all about moving air

You then need to exhaust that moving air, but theres this mistaken concept that warm air is bad - but you literally cannot cool those devices without heating up the air.
The advantages of colder air vanish within single digit seconds as you reach the thermal limits of a cooler and equilibirum occurs, it only really helps your idle temperatures
If the PC is overheating its because of a lack of intake air, not because of anything else - you increase the air intake and that extra pressure forces the hot air out anywhere it can go, simple as that.


As for the CPU concept: intels CPUs are why.
When you have 250-350W CPU's, they truly were the highest wattage component - and then Nvidia with the 20 and 30 series made it almost impossible to get cheap watercooling on GPU's or in aftermarket cooling at all except full cover blocks
