Alphacool at Computex presented a few new products that highlighted what the company has been working on. First off, we have the Apex Stealth Metal fan among the latest products introduced by the brand, hailed as the world's first computer fan designed with entirely decoupled propellers, bearings, and motors from the chassis. The design minimizes both the vibration and the noise generated by the fan. The fan frame is constructed entirely of metal, showcasing the fresh Apex design. Additionally, it employs a 6-pole motor. The fan is touted as being silent due to its HDB (Hydro Dynamic Bearing) bearings. The fan blades are also fine-tuned to achieve maximum airflow and pressure, though specific details will still be released. The Apex Stealth Metal fan will be accessible in black, chrome, and white variants. Also in the pipeline is a unique variant called Alphacool ES Stealth Metal Fan Black, specifically designed for "Enterprise Solutions," featuring an integrated ventilation grill. The Apex Metal fan SKUs will be available for around $30 or less.
Alphacool also introduced its inaugural modular case, featuring uprights made from carbon fiber reinforced polymer and a custom distro plate. The design of the chassis harks back to a custom case style. The case is fully dismantle-able and rebuildable, making it a potential favorite among modding aficionados. The product, called Alphacool Apex Skeleton Carbon Case, will be offered in two variations. These are the Alphacool Apex Pro Skeleton Carbon Case and the Alphacool Apex Skeleton aluminium Case, the latter of which does not include a distribution plate or support for a vertical graphics card. The Apex Pro case with a custom distro plate will be available for $899, while the case-only solution will be available for $499.
In addittion to the case and Apex Metal fans, Alphacool also introduced a few of the additional components for water cooling. There are new CPU water blocks called Core 1 CPU series, which feature company's 3D Jet Flow engine and a new coldplate design. Next up, the company presented the Core T45 Aurora copper Radiator, which is a 45-mm thick pure copper radiator with aliminium casing. We have also pictures some fans, some, 3-1 USB cable, as well as massive CPU water blocks for LGA 4677 socket, in 1U and 2U configurations.
The case design is interesting.
