Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Let's start with what we know. The Omni comes with the same 120mm radiator that we can find on the ECO or Vantage coolers. It's just that this time the pump has been assembled on a bracket which is screwed onto the intake side of the radiator. The pump, radiator and GPU plate are plumbed with the same black rubber tubing with the hard plastic outer cover as well. From the pump and radiator combo, the anticorrosion/anti fungal fluid is sent down over 12" of tubing to a pair of 90°, swivel fittings, then into a pair of shorter tubes that supply and return the coolant to the radiator for cooling.
Inside the super low profile universal liquid plate, CoolIT has designed it with micro-channels to remove the heat from the memory ICs, the voltage regulators, and of course, the heat the GPU produces. The idea that makes the CoolIT Omni stand ahead of the curve is that there are optional interposer plates for the Omni system. While you can buy the cooler with one of four optional plates at this time, fitting the HD 5970, HD 5870, GTX 470, and GTX 480 currently, you have the ability to change your mind later. This allows for upgrading the card along the way with the use of a different interposer plate to match the new card.
Adding to the fact that the cooler can be thought of as a long term investment, CoolIT offers things like a Ceramic Bearing in the pump with a rating of around 50,000 run time hours. Realistically, in a number you can fathom, that is over 5 years of use. Matching the radiator with a high reliability 120mm fan that can produce up to 2500RPM, or as little as 1100, depending on your needs. Lastly, the Omni carries a 2 year warranty on the entire system against any leaking or poor workmanship issues. In the samples I have received, there have never been any issues.
Availability is quite limited at the moment. You can buy all four versions directly from the manufacturer with pricing of $214.99 for the single GPU versions, and $239.99 for the HD 5970 version. Doing the usual Google search, my specific model, the AC-N470, could only be found at a Canadian e-tailer, which makes sense since CoolIT is of course from Canada, and they should get the first samples to hit the stores. The e-tailer in question only ships Canada wide, so even though the pricing is awesome at $179.98, unless you live in Canada that price will soon go sky high once you get a buddy to ship you one. So for this I will base my opinions on the direct from CoolIT pricing since that seems to be the only way to attain one at this point. As far as the changeable interposer plates, rumor has it they are going to be placed around $75 once they go retail, but as of yet I can find very little information on attaining one if I wanted to run let's say a HD 5870 on my Omni.
