CoolIT Eliminator and Freezone CPU Coolers Review

Cooling/Water Cooling by jmke @ 2007-10-01

These two all-in-one water cooling units from CoolIT provide plug and play performance cooling with help of several TEC elements to keep CPU load temperatures down. We stress test the Eliminator and Freezone models on an overclocked Intel processors to see how they stack up against the competition.

CoolIT Eliminator: Specs and in the Box

CoolIT Eliminator

The Eliminator is the lower cost product of the two tested today, with an estimated retail price of $199 it’s more expensive than most CPU cooling devices, but on par with mid-range water cooling kits.

The Eliminator is an all-in-one product, no need for assembly by the end user, you mount the CPU cooling block and the Eliminator inside the case are you are good to go, to be able to fit all the components in a small profile they had to sacrifice on pump and radiator size as you will see in the photo’s below.

The package arrived safe and sound with the product protected inside by large pieces of foam:

Inside the box you find a very instructive manual with pictures and step by step instructions to install the unit on all current platforms. The small bags contain mounting gear separated by platform.

Full specifications can be found at the CoolIT website here, we will list the most important ones here:

  • Fits on AMD Socket S939/AM2 and Intel S478/775
  • Copper water block (CPU Fluid Heat Exchanger)
  • 6 TECs Max total 56Watt
  • 12V Pump with 3.5L/min flowrate
  • 92x92x38mm temperature regulated fan

    The Eliminator comes with build-in performance/noise switch, you can set the unit to High/Medium/Low setting using the switch seen in the photo below:

    You also notice that the tubing has been surrounded by a metal spring, this is to prevent extreme tube bending which could cut off the water flow.

    The TEC units are quite low profile and can be seen here squuezed between the radiator and water blocks:

    The 92mm DFB923812H fan is a Young Lin model rated at 3200rpm at 12v, pushing 63CFM at 38dB.

    The CPU water block is compact and comes with thermal paste pre-applied:

    The finishing on the bottom is near perfection:

    the condensation seems troubling. eventhough it only formed with the case open, it's no guarantee it might not happen under certain circumstances with a closed case.
    Comment from jmke @ 2007/10/05
    it only happened with case open + idle system + at maximum performance setting;

    as you can see from the dBA reading, you don't want to have it running at max performance all the time, not good for the ears, as soon as you throttle it back, the Pelts use less energy, less risk for condensation, you work at your PC, every small load will increase temp, no condensation, closed case = forced airflow front>back, less change for condensation.

    It all depends on humidity level in the area of use. It's called or similar to pipe sweating -

    If you are in hot and humid climate; running at max level with ATX case that has a large screen side panel might have a problem. Naturally, operating such system in North America other than the State of Florida in summer, likelihood might be less.
