The Alphacool Aurora Acetal GPX-A 6800/6900(XT) Eisblock combines style with performance. With experience of over 16 years, Alphacool the ability to create GPU blocks that represent high quality and fantastic performance. This perfectly describes the Aurora Acetal GPX Eisblock
During the development of the EIsblock Aurora GPX-A 6800/6900(XT) graphic card GPU block, we wanted to further increase the performance. The first step was to move the cooler closer to the individual components by reducing the thermal pads to a thickness of 1 mm. Next, we reduced the thickness of the nickel-plated copper block. Instead of 7 mm, it is now only 5.5 mm thick. The water flow inside the cooler has also been optimized. All important components such as the voltage transformers and the memory are now significantly better and more effectively cooled by the water. All this ensures a significant increase in cooling performance.
Copper or Aluminium?
Of course, Alphacool only uses copper for its water coolers. With the Aurora GPX-A 6800/6900(XT) Eisblock, the copper is nickel-plated. Compared to its predecessor models, Alphacool has improved the nickel plating even further, which has considerably increased the acid resistance. This means that the nickel should resist flaking. Why does Alphacool rely on copper instead of aluminium? Simply, copper has almost twice the thermal conductivity of aluminium and is therefore clearly the better material for water cooling.
Is There Anything Else New?
The Eisblock Aurora GPX-A 6800/6900(XT) also relies on the new patented stop fittings, which sit flush with the surface of the terminal. On the front of the terminal you can see the corresponding names of the compatible graphic card types. IN and OUT are now marked by small triangles. They are easily recognizable and fit perfectly into the entire aesthetics of the graphic card water cooler.
The Alphacool Aurora GPX-A 6800/6900(XT) Acetal is a complete redevelopment of the previous Alphacool graphics card water coolers. No technical compromises were made, but the entire technical know-how flowed into the development and implementation.
