Following Noctua's example, Alphacool will also offer free Intel LGA1700 support brackets for the owners of select AIO coolers and CPU blocks. Besides the Intel LGA 1700 support bracket, customers may also claim a free Intel LGA 4189 support bracket.
Owners of the Alphacool Eisblock XPX Pro and non-Pro CPU water blocks and Eisbaer Pro and non-Pro AIO coolers will be able to claim a free LGA 1700 support bracket. Those who own the Pro variants of the Eisblock XPX and Eisbaer AIOs may also ask for an LGA 4189 support bracket.
Those who own an Alphacool Eisblock XPX block (Pro and non-Pro) don't need any additional mounts to use it on an LGA 1700-based system because they already come with the necessary mounting gear. The owners of these water blocks may need to follow new instructions to mount the block using the support bracket. These instruction manuals will be available when the Alde Lake-S CPUs release. As for Eisbaer CPU AIO watercoolers, you won't need additional instructions to mount them on an LGA 1700 socket.
If you want to ask for a support bracket, you may contact Alphacool through the [email protected] email address, but you will need to provide proof of purchase.

KitGuru says: As the launch of Intel Alder Lake approaches, other brands should follow Noctua, Phanteks and Alphacool's example. If you plan to buy an Intel Alder Lake CPU and want to avoid changing the cooler, it may be worth waiting for a statement from your cooler's manufacturer about offering mounting brackets for the LGA 1700 socket.
