Looks cheap AF. I mean yeah it's tidy, but it just looks cheap.Also a bit daft that the side loading method seems to block a DIMM.

not as nice as the xspc or bykski version , probably well built though , think the side ports are more for show guessing the 2 top ones are more useful

I'm starting to think a lot of Alphacool products are kinda crappy. Or if I'm being nice, "overrated". I like *some* of their ideas (ie the multiple ports on this thing). But overall, they leave me with a very "meh" kind of feeling. At least this CPU block isn't as repulsive as their last set of blocks (which are gross rounded stupid-looking things).

TBH they look cheap even though they are not. I have a pump res combo and the pump is crap. So noisy, even at low voltage.

Yeah I've had a Radeon 7950 block from them (no complaint), and have a pair of their Monsta rads in my current rig, and those rads were filthier than the filthiest pr0n star when I first got them. I swear I flushed those things upwards of 10 times and black gunk was STILL coming out of the rads. They project the image of a premium brand, but they're stuff is cheap. They aren't even in the same league as the bigger boys, especially Watercool. Those guys know how to make great blocks.
