ohhh that's nice... too bad I don't trust alphacool worth a damn.

Their hardware is always the first to fail, so I've quit buying it. however... Not sure how a giant chunk of brass could fail, unless a rotary, or radiator.

I don't think that top existed 6 years ago when I got my MCP35x2, the only other block around then was the triple, n it's garbage.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.

I still have my s5 but at this point, I wouldn’t recommend buying one. Their modularity was a major selling point, and since they’re not making any more parts, if something breaks, it’s hard to find replacements.

I will say, that this is a great time for a fabricator to start making aftermarket parts for those who have CL. They’d make a killing.

I’ve heard good things about the Lian li O11

This! I will never buy alphacool ever again. I bought a bunch of their 90 degree rotary fittings and they sprung so many leaks...their radiators would be ok if they had a higher fpi.

This weekend I redid my loop and the elbows sprung a leak and almost shot a jet of water at my gpu... I’m throwing them in the trash. I keep telling myself this every time, and yet I always rationalize and end up keeping them.

Their radiators always seem to retain a bunch of air too. When I redid my loop, I used black ice 240 + 360, and it was just as complicated of a loop, and yet I had very little flow restriction...before that I had 4x280 alphacool rads and it was ridiculously restricted. There were persistent air pockets that wouldn’t resolve themselves.

yeah, I had to have my 60mm vertically mounted in the front of my STH10 so I could use the valves to bleed the air, otherwise it was a crap shoot.

also - removing it + the leaky ancient EK radiator increased my temps by basically nil. Not a huge shocker really, the original loop was built to cool 3x GK110 titans, 3930k, 64gb or memory, & mobo.


The EK radiator sprung an unknown leak somewhere inside the radiator after 4-5 years.

The Alphacool radiator formed a leak at one of the plugs after 2 years.

I'm excited for the day that the rest of my radiators fail so I can finally upgrade to some epic black ice tier units, then I can use half of my 40+ AP15s in a different build

Seems my warranty is void on this pair, good thing these things tend to last for years.

Spoiler!

The new one looks to be a better job.
Will be keeping an eye on this
If your pump unit is still within warranty period, you can still get support. Most if not all States signed "Right to Repair" into law. So as long as you have your receipt, the product company has to honor the warranty. UNLESS...

pretty sure a Kinder could figure the last bit out on their own, but...

...unless physically altered or damaged. Then it's time to worry about warranty stickers. lol

I am really starting to feel my Oats as a long time member of OCN. Why did we go back to this system again?
