Introduction, Features, Technical Specifications

Coolit Systems releases beefer Vantage A.L.C.

Coolit Systems built upon the success of the ECO A.L.C. and added a versatile and configurable LCD screen to their new Vantage Advance Liquid Cooling System. The Vantage includes multiple options to use the CPU cooling system in quiet, performance, and extreme modes. This gives consumers the versatility they need to use the Vantage in different situations depending upon the user's performance needs.


Integrated into the Vantage system is a programmable 84 x 48 pixel LCD screen with a dynamic, custom color backlight and 2.4GHz wireless communication module. There are two buttons on the Vantage pump housing that give users access to all the chassis fan speeds, RGB case lighting, LCD backlight color, and monitoring and alarm triggers.


Coolit Systems claims the Vantage is the is the world's first "wireless-ready" A.L.C. CPU cooler that enables the cooler to be controlled and monitored through CoolIT's Maestro software (not included, optional accessory) and USB wireless controller. Users can also upload their own images that will be shown on the Vantage display! This is a very cool feature with lots of potential for hardcore modders and enthusiasts.
