CoolIT ECO A.L.C. reviewed - 5. Mounting the ECO A.L.C.

Review: CoolIT ECO Advanced Liquid Cooling






We must admit that this year’s CooIT favorite makes last year’s Domino A.L.C. a giant in comparison, as ECO A.L.C. is rated as ultra low profile advanced cooling solution and it sure justifies its rating. The “hardest” task you’ll encounter will be if you don’t have a hole in your motherboard tray, in which case you’ll have to remove the motherboard in order to mount the backplate - everything else is a matter of minutes.

The radiator and the fan are easy to mount and although the pipes leading to the pump are pretty short and rigid, they will reach the rear panel of the case. The fan is already mounted so inexperienced users will have their work cut out for them.

CoolIT’s user’s manual says to connect the pump to either three-pin fan connector rather than the four-pin CPU fan connector. On the picture above, you see ECO A.L.C. mounted in Corsair Obsidian 800D case and on EVGA 3xSLI X58 motherboard. The picture below shows the cooling mounted on EVGA 4xSLI Classified. The cable starting on the pump is only 17cm long and in our case this was a problem during mounting. Namely, the cable barely reached the fan connector on our EVGA 4x SLI motherboard.

The fan is mounted to draw air through the radiator and push it out of the case.
