  • Description

    Only  few companies can look back to such a long history of experience and  tradition in CPU water block development and manufacturing as Alphacool.  In the young water cooling sector, from 2004 to 2007, Alphacool aced  many tests with the NexXxos HP and NexXxos XP CPU water block series. A  multitude of awards and 1st places were the reward for offering the best  water block on the market. With the "Alphacool HF 14 Yellowstone",  Alphacool continued water block development. The result: Alphacool was  voted "CPU water block manufacturer of the year 2011" by the PCGH user  community.

    Since  the beginning of 2010, Alphacool has been developing and testing the  successor for over 14 months. Never in company history had such an  effort been made towards improvement of a product, but the goal was  clear: The new Alphacool NexXxoS XP was not only being developed to  better its predecessors, but also exceed the cooling performance of all  other products on the market.

    Different tests have already proven that the goal has been achieved and that Alphacool has created a true flagship water block.

    In the first review, great flow rates and exceptional cooling  performance ensured a solid win for the NexXxos XP [18.6.2012, Source: 

    Technical features: 

    Cross-slotted structure: Having been patented for the NexXxoS XP  in 2004, the cross-slot technology in the cooling plate was developed  even further. An even finer structure of fins and channels now ensures  stunning performance. The remaining pins are 1x1mm wide and have a  height of 2.5mm. With this technology, it is possible to transfer great  amounts of thermal energy very quickly from cooling plate to coolant.. 

    Backflow channels: The patented backflow channels were also  improved and optimized for maximum flow rates. Coolant can now be  drained very efficiently above the pin structure, reducing flow  resistance and improving cooling performance.

    Injection: A  multitude of approaches for ideal coolant injection into the cooling  structure exist, and many of them show great potential in computer  simulation.

    Alphacool went one step further, and has actually realized many  different technologies and tested them under real-life conditions. These  prototypes were combined with different backflow possibilities, until  an ideal solution was found: Slotted acentric injection in combination  with backflow channels in opposite directions allowed a performance  improvement which also worked on larger chips and Multi-core processors.

    Coolant recirculation:  Unlike many current water blocks, where the recirculation of the  coolant was only seen as a secondary issue, the NexXxoS XP was also  optimized in this point. Hence it features an unusually large collection  reservoir all along the pin structure of the water block. This allows  coolant flow from all directions, removing it from the pin structure in a  highly effective manner.

    Size:  Both in regard to cooling plate dimensions (56x56mm) as well as top  plate dimensions (57x67mm, plus mount), the XP has grown to be a  full-size water block. Main advantage of the larger dimensions is  optimal cooling of multi-core processors.

    Mount: The  XP features a circumferential elevated strip, offering a secure hold  for the mounting plate. This new feature allows switching of the cooling  plate without having to disassemble and open the water block.

    With water blocks from the competition, installation of a different  mounting plate is often a hassle without the necessary technical  know-how, and not many users have the experience to be able to  disassemble a complicated water block and reassemble it correctly  without damaging it.

    Such worries are now thing of the past! Included with the water block  come two mounting plates, one for installation Intel sockets, the other  for use with AMD processors.

    Versions:  Two versions will be available upon release: For budget-oriented users,  the affordable entry-level version with Acetal is the right choice. For  those looking for something a bit more advances, a version with brass  top and elegant black nickel plating is available.

    Cooling performance of the Acetal version is only approximately 2°C  behind the performance of the brass version, meaning that the Acetal  version delivers top-notch performance at an affordable price.
