CoolIT Domino A.L.C.
Today we will be analyzing the Domino … and no we’re not talking about that hot bounty hunter played by Kiera Knightly…maybe next time. No, today we’re examining the latest creation from our friends at COOLIT Systems. This is an A.L.C. (Advanced Liquid Cooling) for modern processors and their power-hungry overclocking users pushing them to new limits. Liquid cooling has several benefits over air, but two of the most fundamental are that silence and heat dissipation; you end up with a quieter setup since there are no high-airflow fans needed, and water has a greater capacity to dissipate heat over air. This second factor becomes critical to people who like to overclock their CPUs (like us!); as cooler temperatures allow higher, more stable overclocks.
However, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, right? Well, the corresponding two problems with liquid cooling is usually that the costs are rather steep, and the knowledge required to build an effective liquid cooling system can be rather intimidating to beginners (not to mention worries about leaks!) And this is where the CoolIT Domino comes in: a self-contained liquid cooling setup for your CPU that is easy to install and maintain, and all at an affordable price that is accessible to the masses.
CoolIT has become well-known for their thermoelectric (TEC) cooling solutions such as the Freezone and Freezone Elite, and appears to be heading into the more “mainstream” market of water cooling with the release of the Domino. As such, the Domino is strictly a water cooling-only product, no TEC technology at work here. This means the system should be simpler and more cost-effective to produce, allowing novices enter the world of water cooling very easily.
Thank you to our friends at CoolIT for supplying the review sample.
For years, CoolIT has been working with leaders in the computer industry to research, design, and provide an affordable new cooling product that provides a comprehensive solution for end users while exceeding high OEM standards. This carefully designed and patented technology unleashes the full potential of a PC, providing superior cooling performance while reducing system level noise and improving reliability of vital components. This small, but potent, pre-assembled product can be easily installed inside any standard chassis.
