Alphacool Eisbaer 240LT Review

Closer Look
Moving onto the cooling loop, we’ll start by looking at the heatsink/pump unit. This is topped with a brushed steel insert with the Alphacool Eisbaer LT logo stamped on top. The pump enclosure is relatively small and very sleek looking compared to most AIO loops. No RGB lighting in sight, either.

The cold plate on the bottom is a solid piece of copper, with copper screws holding things in place.

Forming a connection between the pump enclosure and 240mm radiator is a pair of anti-kink pipes. One of the tubes obviously differs from the other with the quick release G1/4” connection, allowing you to add in components quickly and easily.

The radiator, constructed entirely from copper for better heat transference, is only 25mm thick, or roughly as thick as a typical case fan. You can actually see the copper colour through the thin paint on the radiator fins in the centre.

The pair of Eiswind 120mm case fans sport 7 fins each with a fairly tight lip clearance from the enclosure, but again, no RGB lighting here either, helping to keep costs down as well as maintaining a clean and simple aesthetic.

Finally, attaching the fans with the included screws, the simplicity of their design sadly makes the cooler appear a bit cheap and nasty. An Alphacool sticker in the centre hubs would’ve been an improvement, at the very least. Also, if you look carefully, you can see that the fans aren’t quite true to each other, meaning the mounting slots haven’t been machined perfectly.
