Alphacool Eisbaer 240 Expandable AIO Review

Rating: 8.0.

Recently we have seen a fair few all-in-one liquid coolers here at KitGuru. While they offer good performance, typically better than competing air coolers at least, you simply stick them in your case and forget about them. Alphacool wants to change that mentality with its new Eisbaer range. The Eisbaer AIO is expandable – meaning there is more to it than simply whacking it in your case and enjoying the reduced temperatures.

Essentially, the Alphacool Eisbaer 240 can be expanded to cool extra components – such as a graphics card, for example. All of this is made possible by the use of quick-disconnect fittings attached to the hosing. You can easily ‘disconnect’ (as the name suggests) these fittings, connect a couple more hoses and a GPU block, and carry on as before – but now your GPU is watercooled too. This makes the Eisbaer a good starting point for users looking to dip their toes into the complicated world of custom water loops.
