Opinions Please. - Alphacool

What do you guys think of their blocks?

Good? Bad? for a budget cooling.

ive got the all metal Nexxxos block and its does good job. They are excelent considering the pricees over at ST.

The only gripe i have theyve fixed with theyre newer blocks. The mounting brackets a a bit of a pita.

Very good value for money, thats all there is too it really. Also the mounting system isnt that attractive on the cpu blocks

Yeah the NexXxos block was one of the best around until the Swiftech Storm/Apogee, MP-05 and Fuzion came along. Defiantly a good buy - and so is most of their other gear.

Alphacool blocks are nice, and very nice quality too compared to some others we've seen and stocked in our time.. The prices are decent becuase theres LOTS of competition in the UK so for one retailer (i,e us) to sell lots of these blocks we'd need to have a fantastic price becuase there is that many other stores selling alphacool gear! ST would probably back us up on this as well

If you go for them, i would suggest the NexXxos XP Bold or XP Bold HIGHFLOW as these are the top performers in the NexXxos range.
