|Optix||Awesome! I love it when manufacturers take an active role on the tech forums. It gives them a direct pipeline to the people they are designing their products for and it gives us a chance to ask questions or provide feedback. Very cool.|

|b1lk1||Welcome Barry! We certainly have no issues at all with manufacturers posting and welcome any and all feedback as well. I am sure the readers will also welcome the idea of being able to not only ask us questions but you as well.|

Hi Guys, this is Barry w/ CoolIT. The reason our rad doesnt' benefit alot (it does some) from push/pull configs is because it is optimized for low CFM. That means you keep the fin pitch low so you get max performance out of the rad w/ a quiet fan. Just one of the intricacies of designing a powerful but quiet system
Anyways, real reason I registered instead of posting as a guest is because I have been getting more and more involved with various different forums and we just honestly impressed by the quality of questions and answers been tossed around in here so I figured I'd hang around when I can.
I hope its ok for MFG's to post here... If so, i'm happy to help answer any other questions as well.. its going to be a big year for CoolIT and liquid cooling in general.
Keep up the good work!

i assume that like the other coolit systems, this one is set up to pull air into the case from outside. thus in a case like mine with one input fan and one output fan, using this system would leave no output fan. i assume that to properly use this system you must use a case with more than one (preferably on top) output fan. correct me if i am wrong please.

|Rob Williams||After goofing around with Corsair's H50 for our contest PC, I have a new-found respect for this style of cooler. Quiet, and effective... can't beat that.|

|b1lk1||Yes, it is compatible with all current Intel sockets.|

|killem2||Maybe I didn't see it or maybe it isn't there, but is this compatible with socket 775 intel chips?|

|Optix||I'd still like to know how this would stack up against a TRUE, Megatron, Performa and the like. It's an extra $25 tacked onto my budget build.|

|b1lk1||I sure hope to get my hands on one.|

|Optix||It is also great not to have a monster heatsink if you're using some Thermaltake cases where the upper edge of the motherboard is right at the top exhaust fan(s). The V3 is one of the major culprits and sometimes requires you to remove the exhaust fan all together or angle your tower heatsink straight up.|

Whoops! Thanks b1lk1!
My teacher used to say I know just enough to be dangerous. He was a tool.
Speed reading with a squirmy child on my lap is something I'm going to have to keep trying.
Any idea how this would stack up against a CNPS10X Performa? I'm likely going to go with one of the two.
Oh, Direct Canada has it on for $66 and change.
