The Colorcase Cool Sprinter
When I first saw this kit, my expectations were high and it looks like I was right. The Colorcase Cool Sprinter might just be the first kit on the market with decent performance...or maybe not?The box.
This kit was not packaged in a box. But it's a test sample so I’m not going to consider that as a negative point.The waterblock
This copper water block looks nice, real nice. It was lapped very well and it has a simple mounting system which is usable both for AMD and Intel. No fancy design, just a copper block with an aluminium plate on it.The pump
The same pump as in the Poseidon kit. A 600L/H Micra pump should do the trick for most systems. But Colorcase said that they are thinking about offering an Eheim pump as an option, because they think the pump could be a bottleneck when the radiator and the water block are well-performing.The reservoir
Here we see again a component it has in common with the Poseidon kit. It's not bad, but taking pieces from different kits and sell it as your own is not entirely fair. But who are we to complain? If it's performing and cheap nobody will complain.The radiator
“Oh my god, it’s gigantic” was my first impression. Several copper tubes surrounded by aluminium fins should (in theory) give the best performance for any heat-dissipating object. You can mount a 120mm fan of your choice on it, and because it's just as big as a 120mm fan, you can mount it on a 120mm cut-out in your case. It's securely attached with a high CFM fan that is being used as a case fan at the same time.Clips & tubing
The kit uses the quick seal mechanism. Just screw of the bolt, put your hose trough the bolt, put the hose on the end of the water block/radiator and screw the bolt back on. It's that simple, if your tubing has the right size. If the tubing is a little bit larger or smaller then the bolt, you'll have a problem. Leaks may occur, or the tubing wouldn't fit in the bolt. So you're stuck with this equipment. No chance of changing the radiator to another one, because your tubing won’t fit anymore. Noiseblocker 120mm fan
A transparent/blue 120mm fan from the German company 'Blacknoise'. It should be very silent, as long as you don't mount it on the radiator. When mounted on the radiator however, you'll get resonance with the aluminium fins, and suddenly the whole thing makes a irritating, low, buzzing sound...unless you screw the bolts, which are used to keep the fan in its place, tight enough. No messing with my ears, I’m not an 'I've got the biggest Delta Fan' kind of guy.
