My time with the CoolIT ECO A.L.C. has left me with a sly grin on my face, almost like I was privy to some secret information that I'm not allowed to discuss. The good news is I am allowed to tell you all about it. Where do I start? Everything about the ECO is solid and well thought out and no one part is any weaker than any of the other components, making the ECO one really efficient, all-in-one water cooling solution that should stand most of the air cooling crowd a curve when they look at this solution. The previous thought of pre-built water cooling solutions is that they are subpar and can't hold a candle next to great air cooling.
I am here to dispel two myths; one being that a good water cooling solution can't be had for less than $150-200. And second, that all pre-built systems are not up to par. Simply today, things are changing and companies like CoolIT are out there providing us with the simple answers to long time issues in the PC community. The ECO offers superb installation along with great performance capable of contending with extreme air cooling solutions, but it won't break you and your wallet to get this maintenance free system to cool your processor.
The system is not completely maintenance free, as just like any other fan driven cooling device, you are pushing whatever is floating in your room into the radiator, so some cleaning is required just like any other cooler. The system itself is built to be near bulletproof and from that I see it really is. With all the love CoolIT packaged into making this the most user friendly cooler experience I have had to date says a lot about their ECO A.L.C. and I can't wait to see what else CoolIT has up its sleeves in the future.
For now, I highly recommend taking a long hard look at the ECO A.L.C. for any of your future cooling needs. Priced less than some of the big boys, at around $75USD, depending on where you buy it, this all black, attractive piece of kit should make a perfect edition to any chassis in need of cooling.
