The Core Distro Plate from Alphacool with VPP Apex pump is a must have for any costum water cooling system. It greatly simplifies the construction, planning and maintenance of complex water loops and due to the already pre-installed VPP Apex, no additional pump installation is necessary.
A key element of the Alphacool Core Design series are the chrome-plated G1/4" brass fittings. With the Core Distro Plate, the fittings are simply embedded and not screwed into a thread as usual, in order to avoid possible leaks due to cracking from direct threading into the acrylic. The two-piece fittings are equipped with an O-ring and counter each other during assembly in the acrylic, allowing for not only absolute tightness, but also a clear and functional look for the Alphacool Core Design series.
The Distro Plate can be easily and tool-free mounted to the case panel or radiator with the included Core Push Mounting kits. Alphacool's Push Mounting allows for a secure fit of the Distro Plate on the case panel or radiator, and allows for easy removal for maintenance or expansion.
The Core Distro Plate features an integrated reservoir and integrated VPP Apex pump, and is offered in 240mm or 360mm versions with left or right positioning of the pump top. This makes the Distro Plate ideal for custom water loops where the CPU and graphics card(s) should be cooled simultaneously. Thanks to the arrangement of the G1/4" fittings, complicated hose paths are a thing of the past. In addition, there is an additional drain port on the side, which allows for easy and uncomplicated emptying of the Distro Plate.
High-quality material selection & brilliant illumination
The Alphacool Core Distro Plate is made of high-quality acrylic glass, which allows for an unobstructed view of the coolant and creates a brilliant color display through the built-in digital addressable aRGB lighting. The lighting can be controlled via a digital aRGB header on the motherboard or optionally through Alphacool's Aurora Eiscontrol aRGB controller (part number: 15360).
The Alphacool Apex VPP pump eschews a spherical bearing and instead uses a ceramic shaft. The motor coils were laid from the inside out to make the pump more stable and quiet, and to significantly reduce vibrations. Another positive side effect is that power consumption was nearly halved.
The Apex VPP pump features a 4-pin fan connector that is connected to the motherboard or an external controller. This allows for PWM control and reading of the pump's speed range. The pump is powered by a SATA connector on the power supply.
