A few years ago Coolit released the Domino cooler which at the time redefined liquid cooling for the ‘masses’ – bringing it out of the basement of hardcore enthusiast users and firmly into the mainstream market. Everyone wanted a Domino, they were affordable, well built (although not without some issues it has to be said) and could handle overclocked systems with relative ease.
The release of the Domino paved the way to show other companies how lucrative this market could be and when Corsair released their H50 the performance mantle changed hands. Coolit, not surprisingly didn’t rest on their laurels and went back to the drawing board to regain their crown. Aspects such as the mounting of both the heat exchanger and radiator were factors that came into play. Coolit have been extremely focused on getting this product as close to perfect as possible and when the press complained about some mounting issues they recalled them all and fixed the problem areas. You have to give them some credit for this move.
This leads me nicely into the product we have for review today – the Coolit ECO A.L.C which shares the same basic principles but adjusts the design and key performance areas for a superior cooling experience. Coolit also offer a confidence boosting 2 year warranty which is a good sign.
