The EKWB Phoenix 360 is end of life. No longer available for sale. I know not why.

Alphacool does have the 280mm Eisbaer Extreme AIO with a professional quality pump, water block, and a thick radiator. It has gotten good reviews. It is expensive though and runs about $279. Probably worth every penny of it.
Good for you. Still, I wouldn't dare to call it baloney
Mine started becoming noisy and you'll find a lot of similar reports online. Also refilling is a pain in the a** w.r.t. open loops or constructions with fill ports on the highest point of the loop. I never disputed the good cooling capacity - that after all was the main reason for me for buying it in the first place. Still I'd not buy it again. It is good cooling wise yes also the rads are great (I'm still using all Alphacool parts now), but there are issues (e.g. refilling) and it is more expensive than comparable aios (see e.g. Gamers Nexus last roundup).

Has the dc lt pump been revised? Are there batchs of the same model?

Forgive my ignorance, I'm new to AIO's and have a few questions.

1. The Eisbaer 360mm is listed being "expandable". I understand that means it's compatible with some of their GPU waterblocks. What else does that cover? Other brands of waterblocks? Full coverage one's meant for Custom loops? What all could be used with this unit?

2. Do many of you run push pull fans on this AIO? Any issues?

3. How long could one expect to go before needing a refilling?

THIS is how you bleed an Eisbaer or Eiswolf

THIS is how you bleed an Eisbaer or Eiswolf. I have an Eisbaer on my CPU and Eiswolf on my Vega 64

Keep the radiator hooked up, just use the quick disconnect extensions and the flow indicator as a temporarily inserted bleed point.
Remove everything from the case and run the pump.
Shake rotate, turn and invert all the components except the flow indicator, keeping it as the highest point for the air to collect.
Open the extra plug at the top of the flow indicator, fill with fluid and repeat.
remove the extra extensions and flow indicator, or keep it inline if you want.

I guess i'll go fully with EK instead hen they restock the core-rad parts.
I just bought the Eisbaer Extreme 280 a week ago. Aside from going crazy trying to fit it in my Corsair Graphite 780T case which is a large tower (I had to mount it outside of the case on top because the top drive cage is welded and not removable, but it works quite well in that location. I can't attest to great thermals as my computer is in my sun room and even with 2 air conditioners it gets quite warm at this time of year. I will have a better idea how good it is in September when it cools down a little. Also my MSI X470 Gaming M7 AC does not have the greatest vrms. I will upgrade to the MSI X570 MEG ACE in a month and I will report my findings then.

2. Push-pull is a waste of time on thin radiators like this

3.When pre-filled good for usually 3 years before refill. Mine still is good after 3 years. But it varies to a degree not all experiences are the same.

So do you disconnect from the radiator? how do you get air out of radiator, I am missing something.

Thanks for the tip.

It is not the pump . It is air in the pump. Bleed the system and the noise will be gone. "No investigation, no right to speak. " - Mao Tse Tung
