I would like to thank Alphacool for providing the review sample and ModMyMods for the PWM extension cables used in this review.
Well known as a custom watercooling supplier, Alphacool has now completely entrenched themselves in the all-in-one market not only with their own offerings but as an OEM. Their selection of customizable and upgradable all-in-one liquid coolers has continued to grow in recent years, and it's not just for the sake of having a product to sell. These coolers, alongside offerings from the likes of Swiftech and EKWB, have flipped the script on what a liquid cooler can be.
In today's review, I focus on the all new Eisbaer Xtreme. This fully encased 280 mm all-in-one liquid CPU cooler may not have any flashy RGB LEDs, but what it does offer is expandability, ultra-quiet be quiet! 140 mm fans, a VPP755 V3 pump with reservoir, and quick disconnect fittings for easy expansion. It's definitely a well thought out and exceptionally solid kit. But before I praise it any further, let's take a closer look at the specifications.
