A Closer Look – The Alphacool Cape Corp Coolplex Pro 10Lt and 50Lt

 

All the models come in a very hard cardbox for protection during shipping. At the front side, we can find the Alphacool logo as well as a picture of the actual tube. Of course, the 50Lt model has the longest package box, as we can see in the third picture.

 

 

All the contents are secured from damage using protective foam.

 

 

Inside the package we will also find two screw plugs. We can also see the two mounting clamps supplied.

Generally, the reservoirs are well-built and carefully designed. The top and bottom plates are made of acetal material, while the main body is made of high-grade plexiglass for safe operation. The reservoirs can be installed horizontally or vertically, according to the user’s needs.

 

 

For maximum compatibility, all threads are of G 1/4″ type.

 

 

The top piece of the reservoirs is  equipped with an additional thread, making them great for installation of a Fillport.

 

A Closer Look – Alphacool Cape Corp Coolplex Pro 25Lt and 25Lt Copper Edition

 

The 25Lt model comes in two versions, the simple one and the copper edition. From the second picture we can see that the copper edition has a much brighter and elegant appearance. At the third picture, we can see the ventilation tube which tube is removable for applications where the top of the reservoir is used as an inlet. As expected, the copper version feels much heavier than the simple 25Lt versions, as the plates are made of good copper material. As in all models, three G 1/4″ threads are utilised for maximum compatibility.

 

Verdict

Generally we have to do with a series of solid and versatile reservoirs with multiple G1/4″ ports. We can easily recommend them for use as multi-option liquid cooling reservoirs that are perfect for the most advanced users.
They can be connected through the top and bottom reservoir ports so the reservoir never has be moved for filling, priming or draining your system. These reservoir are also well suited for applications that need multiple pumps drawing from them. They are manufactured using first-class quality acrylic tube that is build to last. Overall, neat appearance and functionality

But how much do they cost?
10lt: 18 euros
25lt: 25 euros
25lt Copper Edition: 25 euros
50lt: 32 euros

We can surely say that all models are totally worth the money and the choice is dependant on your capacity needs. The 25Lt Copper Edition reservoir is a solid choice, given the fact that it is offered in the same price as the simple one at the Aquatuning eshop,

Pros
