    Now looking forward to Installing and Testing on a Couple of my Rigs,

    One will go into Jolly's CM-690 Case Mod v2.0 and the other will be Tested on Jolly's Tech Bench 2010
    ,
    Then one will eventually find its home in my Wife's Storm Scout Rig

    A very Big Thank You to Barry Reicker (CoolIT Systems)
    For supplying these Wonderful Cooling Systems :thup:

    Also mdcomp has one of these too so will be hopefully seeing some results from him!


    So Stay Tuned for some Testing and a Review of the CoolIT VANTAGE ALC
    :rock:





    -------------------


    Update Sun 15th August 2010

    Installing the CoolIT VANTAGE ALC


    This is what Jolly's CM-690 Case - Acentos de Cobre with the current Modded Scythe Ninja current configuration.

    [​IMG]

    First up we remove the Scythe Ninja

    As seen in the previous Update the CoolIT VANTAGE ALC comes with one 120mm x 25mm PWM Fan and on the other side of Rad is a 120mm x 20mm Shroud.

    I am going to be making another Fan Shroud from and old coolermaster fan and adding second ThermalTake 120mm x 25mm Blue LED SmartFan2 to the Rad Shroud.

    So the configuration will be Push Pull,,, ( <<<< Airflow) Drawing cool air from front of case
    <<<< 120mm PWM Fan | Mount Plate |120mmx20mm Shroud |CoolIT RAD |120mmx 25mm Shroud | TT 120mm x 25mm Fan <<<<

    This will be mounted in the 5.25 Drive bay area as see here in pic below

    [​IMG]

    First we take the CoolIT 120mm PWM fan and grill off the RAD

    [​IMG]

    Then attached second 120mm x 25 Shroud I made to RAD

    [​IMG]

    Next we attach the Intake Fan (TT Blue LED 120mm fan) to the 120mm x 25mm Shroud, then the Mounting plate and CoolIT 120mm PWM fan &Grill to the 120mm x 20mm Shroud

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately dont have a pic of all put together as dint save to Camera Compact Flash, think it was full,

    Next we install the Coolit RAD into position in 5.25 Drive bay, then the CoolIT Pump block to Mobo.

    Man you need to be a Octopus to do this, need more hands,lol

    Now connected everything back to PC on my desk and testing also setup the Menu for the CoolIT VANTAGE

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    MENU's

    With the CoolIT VANTAGE ALC there are various Menu's for Set-up from changing the Colour output of the LCD Screen,
    from White, Amber, Green, Red, Blue, OFF or have on TEMP where the colour changes according to Temperature rise
    and fall, also PULSE where the LCD Pulse's like a heartbeat.
    Other setting are for the Fan Speeds - Quite - Performance -Extreme
    Also Display orientation, so it doesnt matter which way you have the CoolIT Pump Block mounted you can rotate the LCD
    screen to suit Landscape or Portrait and change screen angle to 0, 90, 180, 270 Degrees

    VANTAGE ALARMS
    When Either Pump, Fan or Temperatures sensor fails or the Coolant temp goes above 99C/210F the VANTAGE will provide
    visual and auditory alarms


    With my System currently OC'd @ 4.275 Ghz CoreTemp Reading 44C and CollIT VANTAGE ALC coolant Temp @25.6C

    That's all for now, will do some more testing and Benchmarks soon,
    On the Jolly's Tech Bench too as soon as I get another HDD , as I was doing some benchmarks over the weekend
    and the Dam HDD crapped out on me, ::) :(

    Update Wed 18th August 2010


    Installing the CoolIT VANTAGE ALC

    Into Jolly's Tech Bench 2010


    [​IMG]


    Current Set-Up on Jolly's Tech Bench 2010 with the Q6600 @ 3.2Ghz and cooled with Vendetta 2 HSF,

    [​IMG]

    There are some Screen shots in above Post for Core Temps ect, and also since being so cold here lately the Temp,s are even better than above with Q6600 @ Full Load sitting nice @ 30C -35C across all 4 cores


    So on to Dismantling Jolly's Tech Bench to make ready fro CoolIT VANTAGE ALC Installation


    Dismantling Jolly's Tech Bench

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    With Mobo off and Vendetta 2 Removed, just leaving the HR-05 NB HSF, it was now onto making another Fan Shroud for the Coolit VANTAGE ALC

    Now the last one was simple , but this one needed some modding to be done to it, as where the screw holes go it was the solid closed type,
    As seen in pice below, with one corner done

    [​IMG]


    Now with the 120mm Fan shroud made its on to installing them on the CoolIT VANTAGE ALC with a second 120mm x 25mm Antec Tri-Cool Fan

    So the configuration will be Push Pull,,, ( <<<< Airflow) Drawing cool air
    <<<< | Antec 120mm x 25mm Fan |120mmx 20mm Shroud |CoolIT RAD|120mm x 25mm Shroud |120mm PWM Fan | Black fan grill <<<<

    [​IMG]

    Very Happy with the Results of Temps on Par with the Vendetta 2 HSF,
    The only Quibble I have is that it took some time for the Dam Beeping Alarm on the CoolIT VANTAGE ALC to stop as when the Coolant is below 19C it beeps,
    So when the system was Idle Coolant Temp was @ 15C then after a while Folding @ 100% Coolant slowly raised to above 21.5C Beeping Alarm stopped

    Q6600 Cores Temps were around 25C-29C but have since settled to 22C-25C across the Cores

    Ambient Temps were 6C- 8C when I installed the CoolIT VANTAGE ALC that night

    So overall the Set-up Configuration I have is Pretty good and fairly Quiet too!

    Very Impressed!

    within 1 degree of the H50, but the H70 beats them both (out of the box configuration)
