Alphacool is expanding its Core series product line, by adding new CPU coolers that they simply called Core 1. The new coolers are designed to deliver top performance and brand-new aesthetics. Looking at the new water blocks, we can already tell that the simple, but eye-catching design is far different from previous Alphacool products. To know how it performs, you have to read our review.
As usual, let’s start with some technical data and product features.

New Generation – Be impressed.
Be impressed by the latest generation of Alphacool water coolers. It impresses with the usual high quality, remarkable performance as well as functional design.
The Best of New and Old
Alphacool brings the best of both worlds together with the Core 1. In addition to the new 3D-Jetplate, Alphacool returns to its roots by using a proven cross-slot technique to distribute coolant evenly across the redesigned cooler base. Inside the cooler, O-rings ensure precise water flow for effective cooling. The Core 1’s housing is machined from a high-quality brass block and features nickel-plated connectors. The cooler’s copper base, also nickel-plated, has been enlarged to ensure full coverage of large CPUs.
New Mounting System
The mounting system has also been revised. Compared to previous Alphacool models, it requires fewer screws. First, the pre-assembly of the backplate (Intel) is done with four spacers. After that, the thermal paste is applied to the CPU. Then, the matching mounting frame is put on the CPU cooler and fastened with four nuts on the spacers.
The functional and elegant design is a key element of Alphacool’s Core series. The nickel-plated connectors and the discreet contour line stand out from the high-quality brass housing. The rounded corners add the perfect touch to the overall look. The Core 1 is available in various color designs, as well as in discreetly illuminated aRGB Aurora models.
