Accessories and Documentation




With the Omni, you get a simple set of instructions on how to install the cooler both on the card and how to install the radiator in the chassis. Along with the well drawn and written instructions you will receive the bulk of the hardware kit; four screws.


That is all you need besides the card and cards screws to get underway. Simply screw these four screws into the back of the fan with any accommodating 120mm hole in your case.


Fit and Finish




The test subject, again my vanilla EVGA GTX 470, is up for more torture.




With the card prepped and ready for assembly, we can now fit the Omni to the card.




Using twelve of the screws that you removed from the factory cooler, you align the threaded holes in the Omni with the factory holes and secure the screws. Of course, you should have peeled all the plastic off the underside of the interposer plate prior to installation.




Wow! The Omni is really low profile. Once the plate is secured to the card, the sleek black plate sits a little short of even a stock one slot cooler. Definitely no clearance issues here for other cards or even a dual GPU setup. You just need to have room for both radiators.




Looking at the way it covers the card, CoolIT has put a lot of thought into it. While it covers the majority of the left side of the card, they added ventilation to the caps at the right end. Even with adding the large holes at the end for the caps, the Omni is a solid component and the way the hoses run up naturally, there is little force down and the Omni doesn't weigh the card down when it is mounted in the case.




Now that we have covered both ends of the unit and the installation, I thought it was only appropriate to see the completed unit ready to install in my chassis.
