Just like the ice wall guards the northern border of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros from the White Walkers, Alphacool's Eiswand 360 CPU ("Ice Wall") wants to save your liquid-cooled rig from overheating. The Eiswand is an all-in-one CPU liquid-cooling solution, meant to stand alongside your PC instead of inside it. Old-enough gerbils may see a similarity to the Zalman Reserator from days of yore.
The core of the Eiswand contains a 360mm full-copper radiator equipped with six Eiswind fans and mounted above a pair of DC-LT pumps. For those particularly concerned about noise, the Eiswand comes with a "Silent Adapter" for restricting pump and fan speeds in order to keep the beast quiet with "only slightly reduced" cooling power. A black aluminum case surrounds all that gear. Alphacool says the Eiswand has enough cooling power for "any combination of CPU and GPU," too.
Alphacool includes a 4-meter black hose, two liters of coolant, the required connectors and parts, and anti-kink springs. The Eiswand has been in the wild for a few months, but it's now available in the U.S. through Aquatuning's American site for $368.
