Over an year and a half ago, I covered the Alphacool UT60 360 mm radiator here and it was a fairly impressive, albeit dated design radiator then. Today I get to cover the 140 mm version (the quad 140, anyway) and see how it performs. I go in knowing it is based off the same core design, the PC DIY radiator industry had not changed enough to force an update from Alphacool last year. So let’s see if that remains the case with this as well now. Thanks to Aquatuning for providing the review sample.
Let’s begin by taking a look at the specs from the product page:
|Dimensions (L x B x H):||606 x 144 x 60 mm|
|Fan mounting thread:||M3|
|Fins per inch:||10|
|Number of fans:||4|
|Pressure tested:||2 Bar|
|Thickness:||L – 60 mm|
Extent of delivery:
5x screw plug
16x M3x30 mm hexagon socket screw
16x M3x35 mm hexagon socket screw
Alphacool also provides a technical drawing which is very handy in measuring out space for the radiator inside a case and accounting for tubing as well even before your purchase it. As with the rest of their NexXxos series of radiators, the UT60 560 has a mostly copper internal (not full copper, it is still a brass alloy in the tubes and the ports) and the UT model remaining at 60 mm thick overall. This is a U-Flow dual pass model, and at this time there is no X-Flow version of this available. Alphacool has a 2 year warranty here, which is okay for a radiator as any real issues will pop up almost immediately anyway. Let’s now take a detailed look at the radiator on the next page.
