third party compatability with alphacool

Hi @Cyber MageKnight

I would personally advise against such a cooler. Firstly, the cooler is made of aluminum, and the Alphacool components are mostly made of copper (or nickel-plated). However, aluminum and copper react with each other and this can be fatal for the water cooling system.
second is the description more than trustworthy (sarcasm), inner tube diameter 4cm, outer 6cm?

Alphacool is already asking for a water cooler for m.2 ssd's, but it has to be connected via PCie, I'll link the product.


I hope I could help.
Best Regards

If you use that aluminium cooler with copper parts..... and normaly all water ooling parts are made of copper.... good luck, you will destroy your loop. The reaction between copper and aluminium is, the aluminium will dissolve completely over time.

I saw this listed on Aquatuning but it's out of stock. Found it on the manufacturer website though. I believe it's nickel plated copper!
