Alphacool Eisbaer Extreme 280mm Review

Rating: 8.5.

If you have come across Alphacool in the past, it’s probably because you have some experience with custom water-cooling, rather than AIO coolers. For a while now, Alphacool has been introducing products under its Eisbaer range which are aimed at bridging the gap between maintenance-free AIOs, and custom loops.

These pre-built, pre-filled units share a lot in common with custom water-cooling loops, primarily in that they can be disassembled or expanded. With the Alphacool Eisbaer Extreme priced at just under £230, is it worth the money?
