CoolIT Intros Freezone Elite V2 CPU TEC Cooler

CoolIT silently introduced its newest CPU pre-assembled thermoelectric couple water-cooling kit, the Freezone Elite V2. Like the Freezone Elite, the new cooler comprises of a CPU water-block with factory fitted water loop connecting a reservoir, pump, and radiator. Its CPU block has a nickel-plated copper base, its retention modules support sockets LGA775, LGA1366, and AM3/AM2+. Its pump can circulate 210 litres per hour with a noise output of under 15 dBA. Heat is dissipated in a 121 x 82 x 65 mm aluminum radiator, cooled by a 120 mm dual-ball bearing fan that spins at 1100 to 2500 rpm. The CoolIT Freezone Elite V2 should be available soon at a price of 339.99 EUR.

339EUR .... :wtf: ... one can build his/her own water cooling solution with the money i guess (dont know much about WC) ... may be even a better one ...

UGN!

why didn't they have the pump on the block like the other models, it allows a much more powerful pump to be fitted : /


@ above its a TEC water cooler, not just a water cooler. It is still over priced mind you.





I see MK is on viewing the thread, not sure if you read what I posted somewhere else, but the barbs are now metal by the way.

Still a bit too high but that pump looks like it is more powerful, just based on the size (maybe a Laing D5 by corsair??) than what is usually on their kits.

Wich Corsair pump are you refering to WarEagle? That old external "set top box". I vaugely
remember it, but not the pump it had. The new corsair has a D5 or DDC pump?
I always thought Coolit made, well.... Cool looking stuff. I like the idea of the TEC cooling, but thay are so damn expensive not to mention loud. They did have some really nice gpu full blocks this year at some of the trade shows.
I think they really need to find their niche market. Their top end stuff is not good enough for extreme cooling and their low end stuff is less than stellar, and worse than a high end heatsink w/fan. The Domino was around long enough to be destroyed, price and performance wise by the Corsair improved Asetek -all in one.
I'd much rather build my own. But, for those who cannot this could be an alternative if the price where around 200.00 US. But I'll wait to see reviews.

Holy crap are US dollar is getting so weak!!!
If they converted prices one to one this thing is 667.00 US!!!!!

These 'new age' compact water cooling system has no clear advantage over a tower aircooling system. for a watercooling system to work properly, you should first have a large radiators so that you don't need high speed fan to remove heat thus making the system quiet. secondly, you should have a large water reserve, that dampens all the temperature spikes. finally, a good quiet pump, one that can do 800L/hr.

I still use my zalman reserator version 1. this baby is so good that no other cooling can match it at the same noise (quiet) level. This is because the reserator is a passively cooled watercooling system. I can't believe my water cooling kit is over 5 yrs old and still a benchmark.

the resereator is rather awesome, but it wouldnt work so well in situations like mine (where ambients go into the 40C+ range)

With that price id rather buy a DIY or one of those combo packs from petra's im pretty sure for 1/2 the price i get get something that is 2x better on petra's for the same amount we could probably get a very highend one!

You are missing the obvious with this one though. The original version was powerful enough to create condensation at full power, which means below ambient cooling potential.

Let me see you do that on air.

LOL for that price i can buy a new Single Stage unit...:banghead::banghead::banghead:

Agreed...But I think that was considered flawed by CoolIt, since all subsequent versions did not cool below ambient. I think????
I never really did give these much considerstion, mostly do to their volume( Both the amount of liquid and db ). I too think that this would be nice if they could incorperate a larger rad.

Yeah the US dollar is taken an ass kicking lately but that doesn't take away from the fact this thing is WAY over priced! Most people on this forum can build a loop that would destroy that thing for half that price.

I just did the conversion through google and it only came to $462 and change, not $667:confused:

Also water cooling wont go sub ambient w/o adding more loot for a TEC and the goodies that have to come with.

A: I didn't do the conversion.

B: I didn't see it was TEC.

C: I fail.

a: wasnt directed to you specifically

b: It is;)

c: not fail just looking to get the best bang for ur dollar.
I'm in now way condoning the pricing, but those who are picking on it need to see the whole picture, not just a CoolIt ECO with a neat LCD poster on it.

Not on the quads when they released. The original revisions aren't powerful enough for today's cpus. We'll have to wait and see for this new revision.

I have to agree on the fact we are playing with much hotter toys these days.

which makes me sad :(

i like cool running systems that dont fail even if all the fans do in 40C weather.

well I dont think it would fail on air without the fan on, at least on a air cooler. They just throttle and keep producing;)

sorry, for GAMING :P

my current system (video cards aside) is very power efficient. tis why i want 5K cards.
