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.

Raijintek Orcus 240 Liquid CPU Cooler Review

We’ve mentioned it before and it’s still true today, the AiO market is jammed full with competition making innovation a struggle for even the most experienced Engineers and R&D teams. Enter the Raijintek Orcus 240 all in one liquid cooler. Immediately you notice the cylindrical device attached to the tubing and know that something is different here. While most companies are sticking with the tried and true pump on block combo the German designed and Thai built Orcus 240 (thank you Raijintek for the simple name) took the pump and placed it externally on the tubing. This left space for a reservoir/flow meter on top of the block and of course you also find RGB leds everywhere. No doubt innovation was at the top of the bill for this cooler, but let’s find out what that nets Raijintek in terms of performance, ease of use, and quality.
