Alphacool HF 14 GPU ATI NVIDIA Smart Motion Universal Copper Edition – the optimal water cooler for a GPU-only cooling system.
A GPU-only cooling system, that is, purely cooling the graphics card’s processors, offers a great price advantage over the complete cooling solution.
With graphic cards that have been purchased cheaply, a complete cooling system is often seen as too expensive by comparison and often not even necessary. Additionally, VRAM components and voltage transformers often come with passive cooling as a factory standard and do not need a water cooler.
With a high-end graphics card, the opposite is often true. With such a high-performance graphics accelerator, it seems the GPU as well as VRAM and voltage transformers should be water-cooled. In such cases a complete cooling solution for maximum performance is standard procedure. But is this economical?
Complete coolers are mostly intended for specific graphics card types and are often not capable of being retrofitted. Thus the cooler becomes obsolete along with the graphics card, which can often be the case as soon as 2-3 years.
The GPU-only solution is different: with the Alphacool MCX System and a GPU-only cooler, the graphics card cooler does not become worthless scrap metal when the card is changed, but can be universally adapted to a new card. The system is compatible with nearly all cards on the market and offers excellent cooling performance!
Besides the well-thought-out basic concept, considerable experience and development effort have been incorporated into the design of the cooler. For example, the connecting threads stand at a 45° angle to one another, which allows for a more compact size, more spaces for hose connection while simultaneously not limiting the connection size.
Naturally, the bottom plate is made of copper and thereby offers the best thermal conductivity and consequently the best cooling performance.
The design of the cooling structure offers very little flow resistance as well as the highest safety and first-class cooling output for your computer.
The term “universal” here depends on the bracket, which, with a hole spacing of between 53.5 to 61.5 mm, has fit onto all the models tested by us until now. Despite the great variability of the hole spacing, we ask that you double-check the spacing on your graphics card before purchasing, in order to avoid a possible incompatibility.
Known compatibilities to date:
- ATI/AMD: 6950/70, 6970 V2, 6990
- GeForce: 580/570
Does not fit:
- ATI/AMD: ----
- GeForce: 590
We rely on feedback from our customers for this. If you find further compatibilities, just send us an email!

Attention: The manufacturer Mayhems advises that Mayhems fluids, especially the Aurora line of products, have been manufactured and distributed solely for show and modding purposes. These should not be utilized in the system for more than 14 days.
We would also like to advise that Mayhems fluids can damage water cooling products, and using Mayhems fluids can thereby void the warranties offered by the following manufacturers: Koolance, Phobya, Alphacool, Aqua Computer, Watercool.
Damages such as: clogging, corrosion of aluminium radiators, deterioration of glued containers, etc., are a consequence of the use of Mayhems, but will not be reimbursed by Mayhems. Use is therefore at one’s own risk.

Ich muss meine vorrige Bewertung revidieren, mir ist ein kleiner entscheidener Technischerfehler unterlaufen. Nach dem beheben des Fehlers läuft es Super und Kühlleistung ist Erstklassig.
GTX 970 OC
Bei einem von Boost Takt 1241 MHz liegt die Temp bei ca.34°C
(im Kreislauf 2X360er Radis + CPU)
Die Kühlleistung ist unterlast recht identisch mit der Luftkühlung, vllt etwas besser und die Taktrate bei der GPU(GTX 970 * ) bleibt konstanter. Ist auf jeden fall leiser als mit Luftkühler insofern wenn man auch ne recht leise Pumpe hat;)
