ALPHACOOL EISBLOCK XPX AURORA BLACK CPU BLOCK
The new Alphacool Eisblock XPX Aurora CPU Water Block offers fantastic performance thanks to the patented ramp design, plus excellent quality. The new Aurora design combined with addressable RGB digital lighting offers many possibilities for outstanding lighting.
Yield in abundance!
The so-called “ramp system” ensures an even flow of water within the cooler and sits in front of the diffuser plate. This ensures that the water is pressed evenly through the diffuser plate, which in turn pushes the water evenly onto the cooling base. The cooling channels in the base of the CPU cooler have also been expanded to 34 x 32mm to accommodate the constantly growing CPU DIEs. This is especially suitable for multi-core processors with 4, 6, 8 or even 12 and more cores. In order for the heat from the CPU to be transferred to the water as quickly as possible, 81 fins can be found in the cooling plate to ensure maximum heat diffusion.
And the lighting?
All new Eisblock XPX Aurora CPU water blocks come with addressable digital RGB lighting . The aRGB LEDs are integrated directly into the CPU water cooler and operate once around the entire cooling block. With up to 15 digital RGB LEDs , the entire CPU block is evenly and brightly lit. Of course, the brightness can be controlled by an appropriate controller. And as with all aRGB LED products, all known effects can be created. From simple color changes to wave effects and rainbow lighting, anything is possible. Of course, Alphacool Eisblock Aurora coolers can also be connected and controlled via motherboardsusing the standard 3-pin 5V connector. The cable also has a built-in Y adapter. This makes it easier to connect more Alphacool Aurora products in series without having to order separate Y adapters.
Assembling the XPX Aurora Eisblock cooler is simple. The back plate is simply attached to the motherboard from behind. The mounting frame for the AMD or Intel socket is attached to the cooler and the corresponding mounting screws are pre-installed to this frame. Then just apply thermal paste and connect the cooler with the screws.
Unique Aurora design
The Alphacool Eisblock Aurora has been significantly changed at some points to its predecessor, the Eisblock XPX. The bottom of the refrigerator is completely made of brass and is no longer made of Plexiglass or transparent nylon. This changes the overall feel and quality of the cooler. Not only is it heavier in hand, but it is also much more stable than regular Plexi CPU water coolers. To visually stand out from the normal Eisblock XPX CPU water cooler, the bottom of the cooler was kept completely black. This emphasizes the visual effect of the water flow. The corners of the CPU cooler are more angular, which makes the cooler stand out from the normal Aurora Plexi Eisblock.
