Koolance Exos Watercooling
 

Quote:

A while ago, I tested the Koolance PC2-C watercooling solution. Today, the Exos system has landed on my desk. The PC2-C is a complete case with watercooling, but the Exos lets me choose my own case with the benefits of a complete watercooling.

:bash: almost forgot to congratulate you on a great article

question1: Would you consider buying one as you have that "noise" problem or would you choose a custom solution ?
question2: Installation in one hour ? Seems mighty fast.
question3: Is the Exos fastened to your box or is it just placed on top ?

my side of things, as I was there when he installed the system:

Q3: there were large Velcro’s in the package, so you can secure it to up to a certain point to your case.
Q2: the installation wasn’t rushed or anything, less then 1 hour when working at a steady pace if very feasible in my humble opinion
Q1: Don’t think it can cool down my 172Watt pelt :)

Good to know the Exos is silent, i didn't expect that from 3 80mm's. :) A pitty about the price though, you can build your own, more powerful watercooling for less.

yes, but you don't have the plug & play capability with that one!

1) I still haven't disassembled it :D
2) -Going to shop for better clamps: 1 hour
-Disassembling mainboard 10mins, putting cooler on cpu 5 mins, cutting tubes and mounting 15 mins, mounting mainboard and periphals 15 mins, filling and bleeding 15 minutes > 1 hour
3) not permanent fixed but easy to do soo, one can buy straps as an option (did mention it on page 1 I believe)

I suppose the tubes are going from the top trough an opened PCI-"gap" at the back. Aren't you creating a possible danger of bending the tubes too much this way ?

Nice review :o But could it be possible to show a pic of the back of your case? I'm wondering how far the tubes come out of the case. Are they attached to the case or just hanging from the top till the pci-slot?
