CoolIT ECO A.L.C. CPU Watercooler continues the pre-assembled trend

While custom built water-cooling setups can offer very impressive performance there’s quite a bit of effort and money to be sunk into such systems. Going the pre-built route can save you that headache and still offer commendable results.

The CoolIT ECO A.L.C. CPU Watercooler sees the company move away from the pump attached to the radiator method for the pump on the waterblock approach which should ease installation and could allow for a second fan to be mounted. Overclockers Club has the review:

The installation process is pretty straight forward, and is as simple as installing a fan and bolt on heatsink. Once the board is in, I installed the radiator into rear 120mm exhaust fan location. Then I removed the protective cover on the pump/heat exchanger and mounted it to the board using the thumbscrews that thread into the backplate. Plug in the power wire for the fan to the CPU fan header and the pump to an available header or a 3 pin power connector and you are ready to enjoy the benefits of a liquid cooled system.

Well that was easy enough and there’s no need to worry about clearance issues or the like as with high-end heatsinks.
