Alphacool Unveils New Core Flat Reservoirs

The Alphacool Core Flat Reservoir not only looks sleek with its aRGB lighting, but also offers flexibility with a total of 5 connections. The reservoir is made entirely of acrylic. The installation of a D5 or VPP pump is required for operation. Due to its flat design, the Core Flat Reservoir also fits in small cases.

Core Design
A key element of Alphacool's Core Design series are the chrome-plated G1/4" connections made of brass. In the Core Flat Reservoir, the connections are recessed rather than screwed into a thread, bypassing the problem of possible leaks due to cracking from the direct screwing of the connections into the acrylic. The connections are in two parts, fitted with an O-ring and counter each other when mounted in the acrylic. This not only ensures absolute sealing of each connection, but also allows for the clear and functional appearance of the Alphacool Core Design series.



Easy installation
With the included Core Push Mounting kit, the Core Flat Reservoir can be mounted on the case panel or on a radiator. The metal pins are attached to the radiator or case panel and the matching female sleeves are attached to the Flat Reservoir (see manual). In the next installation step, the Flat Reservoir is simply and tool-free pushed onto the pins. Alphacool's Push-Mounting allows for a secure fit of the reservoir on the case panel or on the radiator and allows for easy disassembly for maintenance or expansion projects.

Gamechanger
The Core Flat Reservoir is offered as a 240 mm or 360 mm version, with right positioning of the pump top. This makes the reservoir ideal for custom water loops. An additional drain port is located on the side, allowing for easy and uncomplicated draining of the Flat Reservoir.

High-quality material selection & brilliant lighting
Alphacool's Core Flat Reservoir is made of high-quality acrylic glass, allowing for an unobstructed view of the coolant and brilliant illumination by the built-in digital addressable aRGB LEDs. The lighting can be controlled via a digital aRGB header on the motherboard or optionally through Alphacool's Aurora Eiscontrol aRGB controller (item number: 15360).

Nice looking rads, and perhaps it is "flatter" than it appears in the pics, as it doesn't look that much thinner than most other rads, or are my eyes deceiving me again ?

imo lacking a ~120x120 version is a big miss. The 120mm fan slot at the back of the case above the motherboard IO is usually a weird spot that isn't really used.

No point having a drain port on it if it is high up, the drain port needs to be the lowest point on the loop.

They look pretty good, but after my experience with a EK one, the pump does not really like the small distance from the pump inlet to the edge of the res (10mm) it made my pump noisy.

That ones are available. Mounting system seems different tho.

Should make a dual pump, serial and high flow rate (side inlet/outlet) version so I can finally retire my Koolance RP-452X which after more than a decade still outperforms every res which can mount a pump.

Edit: oof based off how alphacool have been exposed lying in marketing for their new apex fans maybe not.
