I am still having sticker shock over the 79 Dollar MSRP of the Domino A.L.C., but for once this is a good thing. There are very few liquid cooling systems in this price range; even the L.C.L.C. from Asetek is supposed to be higher and it does not come with the advanced electronics.
This is a launch day review so availability will be slim for the first week or so, but CoolIT Systems has a vast amount of retail and e-tail partners who keep their products in stock. So after the initial week we should see the Domino A.L.C. all over the place, just in time for those last minute holiday shoppers.
When it comes to performance the Domino is clearly able to perform up there with the best of air coolers. It is too bad the TECC has already been sent to Chad, but after he gets everything squared away I will send the Domino over so he can log the performance in the database. At that time we will see how the Domino stacks up against the other 2008 CPU coolers. Judging by the apples-to-apples test with the MaxORB, it should fair very well.
As a pre-built liquid cooling loop the beauty is in the mechanics. Pre-built systems do not require maintenance, extensive setup or the hassles of component liquid cooled systems. The Domino A.L.C. system is a great place for people to start down the path of overclocking and liquid cooling. It allows you to get a taste of the performance without the high cost or risk; something that cannot be said for component systems.
