CoolIT Domino ALC Water Cooling Review

Manufacturer: Coolit Systems

Features and Specifications


CoolIT Systems has built a reputation for bringing liquid cooling to the masses. With its various, integrated, sealed-unit liquid coolers, it has removed the need for amassing radiators, hoses, reservoirs, water blocks, and other miscellany and then assembling them into a working system free of air and contaminants.

Most of CoolIT's liquid coolers come with a reservoir/radiator/fan that mounts over the more-or-less standard, rear, 120mm fan grate found on most enclosures. Two hoses connect the unit to a water block that fastens to the CPU. The new Domino A. L. C. keeps up that same tradition, but comes with some new twists that make it even more compelling than earlier CoolIT liquid cooling systems.

We installed a CoolIT Domino A. L. C. on a ASUS P6T motherboard fitted with an Intel Core i7 920 CPU, with the intention of seeing just how much better--if at all--this liquid cooler is than a stock air cooler. Then we overclocked the holy heck out of the CPU to see if the Domino could really keep it cool.

Features and Specs

The CoolIT Domino A. L. C. comes with mounts for every current CPU socket, including Intel LGA1366 and LGA775 sockets and a litany of recent and current AMD sockets.
