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.

barrolde 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!

b1lk1 No the ECO pulls air out of the case through the radiator. You can always tell which way a fan pulls as they always pull through the open end of the fan itself past the bracket and fan motor.

fan direction

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.

I believe so. There are three back plates shown so I am assuming it is LGA 775, 1156 and 1366 since they all have different mounting hole locations.

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.

Unregistered Just to let you guys know, there is a 240mm radiator version of this cooler coming out

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.

Dual fans never seem to help these units and if I do add another fan it introduces an extra variable since not all fans are created equal. If anything, using this inside a case with side panel fans and better airflow would have better results. The chassis I use, the Zalman GS1000 has no side panel fans or front panel intake fans as well so it is not as efficient. I use this chassis as it keeps the playing field level and forces the cooler to cool the CPU and stops the chassis fans from adding extra cooling that others may be able to give.
I can understand that from a review standpoint it is probably best to test with the stock configuration to keep things fair. I have an Asetek cooler (similar to the H50) and it got a couple of degree temp drop off adding a second fan. It was about the same drop as adding a shroud to a single fan. What I really like about these small water cooling setups is how it clears the space around the CPU and RAM. Tower coolers have a tendency to crowd the RAM slots.

Optix 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.
