Alphacool Eissturm Gaming Kit Review

So you’ve got yourself a brand spanking new PC on order and you couldn’t be more stoked. This time you went all out. The latest high end desktop processor, flagship motherboard, maxed out memory, m.2s galore, and you even managed to snag a pair of 1080 ti’s right out from under a crypto miner’s nose. But did you consider cooling when you put that parts list together? That processor has more cores than it knows what to do with and they run hot. Hot like Hawaii growing further out of the Pacific, hot like the forest outside LA last summer. For cpu heat like that there is no other long term solution better than a traditional water cooling loop. And therein lies the problem. Watercooling is a whole new level of technical parts and perceived dangers. Luckily manufactures have realized this; enter the kit. These boxes come complete with all the parts that you need to put together your first loop. The bonus being that you are guaranteed to have compatible parts and if you choose the right kit you get real quality parts that can be used for years to come as you expand and upgrade. Today we are taking a look at one of those kits, the Eissturm Gaming Kit from Alphacool. Alphacool are old pros in the watercooling game hailing from Germany so expectations are high for this 360mm rad equipped loop. Follow along as we find out just how cool this kit can keep your processor.

Alphacool Eisblock HDX-2 M.2 Cooler Review

If there is one thing we've learned about fast M.2 drives over the past year or so is that many of them get hot, very hot. Hot enough that that they will actually throttle and cause slower transfer speeds. We actually saw this in our review of the Kingston KC1000 M.2 drive. Obviously with many major drives (Samsung 950, anything Phison E7-based) having this issue something needed to be done, especially with so many of these drives out there. Well Alphacool has you covered with their Eisblock HDX line of M.2 coolers. There are actually 4 coolers in the line, but we will be mainly concentrating on the HDX-2, which is basically a PCI-Express 3.0 x4 card with an M.2 slot on it and a very large aluminum heatsink. This should definitely solve all of your M.2 throttling issues. Let's take a look!
