Alphacool presents today the Core XP³ Brass CPU cooler. Due to the still high popularity of the very compact Core XP³ CPU cooler, Alphacool has decided to offer another variant. The Core XP³ Brass is, as the name suggests, made of brass. Together with the nickel-plated copper base, the waste heat from the CPU is even better distributed and more efficiently transferred to the coolant.

The high weight and perfect color coating leave no doubt about the high value of this CPU water cooler. With this full metal cooler you get a very compact CPU water block for all current mainstream sockets from AMD and Intel. It offers the typical high Alphacool quality paired with outstanding performance at a fantastic price.

That's good to hear, and (what I) expected.

From what I've seen, not much needs to change for most blocks/AIOs, etc. Akin to 1200->1700. As soon as they are allowed, you'll see other announcements of AM5 support of many existing products too.
