Today, we are taking a look at the updated version of the Alphacool Eisbaer AIO CPU cooler, the Eisbaer Aurora. For its second-generation product, Alphacool has gone through the Eisbaer design and improved every single part of this cooler, from the pump to the radiator and everything in-between. Combined with its unique, modular design that allows for additional blocks to be attached to this otherwise closed loop cooler, and Alphacool has a unique and powerful CPU cooler on its hands – albeit one that carries a price premium to match.
