    Alphacool presents the Eiswand ("Ice Wall"), a water cooling set for your CPU that can also be expanded on through its two quick-release connectors. For example, you could add one of the prefilled graphics card coolers in the Eiswolf GPX-Pro series, which would even add an extra pump to your system. You can find a fitting graphics card cooler using the configurator at http://www.hwconfig.com.

    The Eiswand itself has two DC-LT low noise pumps built into its illuminated bottom. Even in the unlikely case that one of the two pumps fails, the cooling loop will continue to operate with only a marginal decrease in cooling performance. This means the Eiswand offers you enormous system stability.

    The core component of the Eiswand is the 360mm full-copper radiator, which is equipped with six Eiswind fans. The fans' Push&Pull configuration gives you optimal cooling power. You can also use a Silent Adapter to severely restrict the pumps and fans, lowering the volume even more. Cooling power is only slightly reduced with the adapter.

    The external radiator's case is made entirely out of aluminium, emphasizing its elegant appearance. The set includes a 4m-long black hose, as well as 2L of coolant for filling the system, connectors, anti-kink springs, and various other parts such as a corresponding external power supply to power the system. The Eiswand is a complete system that comes with all the parts you need for cooling your CPU.

    Whats in the box:
    • 1x 360mm XT45 full-copper radiator
    • 6x Eiswind fans 1100/700 RPM
    • 1x XP3 CPU cooler
    • 1x external power supply
    • 1x 4-pin molex extension
    • 4x Anti-kink springs
    • 4x straight connectors
    • 1x Silent Adapter 7.5V
    • 2x Quick-release connectors
    • 2x 1L Celvin Catcher coolant

    Weird combination here- the CPU block is over 5-6 years old, and they introduced a new CPU block which I expected would be in here instead. Ditto with the QDCs, although I expected this since they used the same on their Eisbaer CPU coolers also.

    Also, someone should tell them the configurator is incorrect and has some entries that are very.. telling.. of some "borrowing" done from the EK configurator.

    No problem using a "not new" block, and the most important aspect of QDC is that they do not spill when you uncouple them.

    Also, small radiator.

    CPU blocvk being 5-6 yrs old has little performance impact.

    How is a 360x45 a small rad???

    Except this particular block is mediocre at best to begin with, and costs $5 less than the newer one which is built better and performs better. The mounting on the old one is also not "precise" and requires some guess work, as well as some trial and error to see if you have a good TIM spread.

    The QDCs in question are not spill-proof, there will be some drops of coolant that will come out. However since these will be outside the case, it is not that bad imo.

    I am guessing the small rad size comment was in reference to this being an external radiator where most others tend to be much larger (9x120/9x140/6x140 etc being the usual type).

    when 9 x 120 is what you are used to then a 360 becomes small.

    Since the spill now will end up on your carpet its still bad, and remember that when you go external rad you usually have to disconnect the rad if you want to move the setup more than 30 cm (a foot).

    And since you no longer are constrained by what your chassis can take leaving it at a 360 is the bare minimum.

    Reminds me so much of those Reserators back in the day.
