People that are interested can go look for themselves how Alphacool is treating their customers: https://www.overclock.net/t/1624192/alphacool-pump-vpp755-review-of-noise-issues-and-problems

Pretty disturbing and worrying if you ask me.. and makes me think twice on buying Alphacool products again..

you mounting to AM4 ? if you are HEADS UP! nut is in wrong place - Yes i Know instructions tell you to mount underneath but unit doesn't make enough contact with the chip set so you are meant to mount the nut between the spring and plate for pressure. The stand along AM4 kit comes with a thick washer so you can still have the nut underneat to act as a guide

also Aurora is not support by any brands, thats the show piece fluid from Mayhems and they even state it for show purposes .Mayhems Pastel is a different matter biggrin.gif

Has anyone used both the old Eisberg and the new Eisbaer?

How do the two compared, especially with regards to noise and reliability?

My Eisberg is dying - super low flow, sometimes none at all, and the noise is getting louder and louder. And I am thinking of replacing just the pump/block with an Esibaer solo.

Thanks.

I just ripped apart my Eisbaer and reused the 360mm rad for my custom loop.

What a pile of garbage the Eisbaer 360...

I tried EVERYTHING to get rid of the air bubbles but there is no way of getting them out.. Its making a very annoying sound and i took the cooler out of my case and shook it pretty hard which got rid of the air but now its back..

I will contact my retail store if i can get a new one or my money back as i can't even change the coolant without voiding my warranty..

I really wish i spend a little more and got myself something proper like EKWB kit..

Anyone knows how to open this up please?

I want to open it to clean the window and the pump.

I have removed the 4 copper screws on the bottom, and cleaned the copper plate already, but I don't see a way of disassembling the rest?

Thanks.

There's bits that I want physically scrub off unfortunately!

On that note, Blitz says it can't be used on plated products - what's up with that?

Blitz is mildly corrosive, that is why its so good at cleaning. Pretty self explanatory why it shouldn't be used on plated goods.

I ditched the Eisbaer for a full custom loop as soon as I could. I don't trust AIOs anymore, too many things that can go wrong with no way of being corrected.

You do know that resevoir has a fillport right? its that little cap with the flathead screw on it next to the 2 hoses going in to the CPU. Its even marked "fillport" on mine. You can literally unscrew it, fill it up, screw it back and fire it up to let the coolant circulate.

I have very very limited space, hence I have to use the Eisbaer.

I want to go proper custom loop eventually, but I'll need a lot of custom parts designed and machined, so it will take a long time.
