The last thing that can be said about the people at Koolance
is that they don't stay in touch with the computer market. When water-cooling products started to flood the shops, they hopped on the bandwagon and introduced a line of cases with a build in water-cooling system. Today, more and more demanding users create there own modded case and are just looking for a good cooling solution, nothing more nothing less. So Koolance
presents us today with the Exos, a good looking and complete water-cooling kit.
When you look inside the box you'll find a very complete set:
For starters the black beauty of a cooling unit with three (!) 80mm fans, pumps, reservoir, radiator and the led temperature read-out unit with fan control.
PumpS, a spelling error? No, inside the reservoir Koolance
build two pumps, one for intake and one for outlet so whenever one pump fails, there's still some water movement so your cpu won't fry.
You'll also find tubing (for inner and outer use), a bag filled with ready-to-use cooling fluid, the slot interface, a power cable that feeds the goodies, a temperature probe, some nozzles and finally all the mounting aids like rubber pads etc...
I've just started writing this article and I already told you a lie, way to go no? The Exos kit isn't complete when you buy it :( If you're really want to use it right away, a cpu water-jacket will come in handy. So, don't forget to order the cpu200-g cooler which can be used for both AMD and Intel processors. Wim @ Loveno
was nice enough to throw in a chipset jacket (that will be used to cool down the good old Kyro 4000 XT) for this review also. When you consider water-cooling your gf4, you can't use this one, you need to buy the graphic cooler due to the bigger size of the GF4’s GPU.
The unit itself measures 7.25" 3.75" 18.5" (18.4cm x 9.5cm x 47cm) WxHxD and weighs about 7.3 pounds (3.3kg). Koolance
also provides some options like attachments for frequent moving systems, a chipset spacer kit and even an adapter kit for Xenon support!
Ok, now that you know what I'm talking about lets move on to the next page and start assembling this beauty
