Pre-cut filters that can fit between the radiator and the case for inlet filtration. Cleaning filters and fans is fiddly, but ideally a washable filter with a silicone gasket to give it a great seal and prevent scratching the case when installing (trying to force the radiator into place). There could even be different grades of filter for minimal / regular / extreme filtration. By using a physically thicker material, it should be able to filter well with low restriction as opposed to the paper thin filtration materials which are generally available (e.g. car air filters).

Off the shelf filtration material tends to be much too fine (restrictive), hard to cut to shape, unsealed at the edges etc. It's not that this would be expensive to manufacture, just that nobody seems to offer one I can buy.

Hi Alphacool. Any news on the release of the Eisboard MBX? I would like to see the Eisboard MBX in a multiport version.

Hey Alphacool!

Just a little feedback and maybe a few ideas on how to improve the Eisbaer Aurora to become even better:

Tubing:
-The 420mm rad version could use a bit longer tubes as they can only be installed in the top position if the inlet/outlet is at the back of the case otherwise the pump/reservoir combo cannot be mounted on the CPU as they are too short for that. Probably a 5 to 10 cm longer tubing can solve this issue.
-The tubing is too stiff and works againts the user when trying to mount the pump requiring 2 people to properly install unless you mount it on the cpu while the motherboard is not installed in the case (which would make the installation of the mb a bit more challenging).

Mounting:
I'm sorry to say, but this is worst part of the cooler as coupled with the problems with the tubing it makes almost impossible to be installed by a single person as I've to use 1 hand the apply pressure to the pump to keep it in place while with the other hand I've to apply significant pressure on the screws in the mounting bracket to push them down enough to catch the thread in the nut within the backplate and while I need a third hand to hold the backplate in place to prevent it from popping off from the backside of the mb as the adhesive on the backplate is pretty weak.

How to solve this:
Instead of the long screw in the mounting bracket which goes directly to the nut in the backplate add a spacer nut to the kit which can be screwed into the backplate from the front side and a shorter screw for the mounting bracket which can be screwed into the spacer.
This will provide the following benefits:
1. The backplate can be secured to the mb prior to the mounting of the cooler without the fear of it popping off when the pump is being installed
2. The spacer nut can prevent the overtightening of pump as the screw in the mounting bracket will bottom out in the spacer nut.
3. It doesn't require the retooling of the production line

It's not really my idea just saw similar mounting solutions from at least 2 different manufacturers which made the installation of their cooler much easier.

I see Alphacool has couple of 92mm fan based radiators, but they are very thicc (XT45) compared to the fan size!

Given how popular 92mm fans (like the Noctua NF-A9x14) are in "SFF"- (small form factor) communities (SFF.network, r/sffpc etc.) nowadays, I would really like to see thinner options like ST30 or even more thin (20 to 25mm) come available.

Also 3 (x92mm) fan option would be popular too, as many SFF-cases still support ~300mm long graphics cards and 3-fan 92mm radiator would be ~320mm long compared to normal 360 rad (~400mm).

These radiators would fit many SFF-cases and the community is constantly designing new cases, so if there were small and slim radiator options, people could use them as the basis of their design.


------------------------------------------------

Also, can Eisbaer LT-radiators (25mm thick) be made available without the block pump-combo. I would see these could be popular too.
Ah, I see! Im sure SFF community thanks if you release these slim 92mm radiators.

Theres also use case for slim single 92mm radiator in Dan-case A4 where currently the only watercooling option that fits is Asetek 645LT AIO-cooler. Many would rather get Eisbaer "LT92"
Now that Eisbaer LT92 is reality, can you revisit these other things I asked for? :) ITX and SFF seem to be growing FAST this year ;) Would especially like to see those 25mm or even thinner radiators released and 80mm/92mm based radiators atleast in 30mm like in LT92.

Suggestions? Wishes? Suggestions? Comments? Ideas? Improvements? New product?
Not really a new product request but will the cad models be available for the new Eisblock ES Acetal for the reference 3080/90. I'm mocking up a triple 280 rad itx system and this will make my life so much easier. The 3d models are needed to figure out how I'm going to support everything in the case I have to build.

I current have a 1080ti in a different block mocked in but the Eisblock is what i'll be going with. Please help....
