    Koolance Exos-Al Review


    (Page 1 of 6 )

    "Water cooling? Well, I have a bit of a problem putting any liquid inside my computer." That was common to hear in the days of do-it-yourself water cooling, but not any more. Water cooling is going mainstream, and on the PC side of things, Koolance is leading the charge with the Exos-Al. Find out why our reviewers are calling this unit "by far the best performing kit we've ever seen."

    Ten years ago the realm of computer water cooling consisted of only DIY (do it yourself) enthusiasts. Curious onlookers weighed the pros and cons of water cooling and the general feeling was that the traditional heatsink and fan was enough. Then Koolance came along and began development on a consumer line of PC liquid cooling systems. They aimed to bring water cooling to the mainstream, and in order to make that hurdle they had to put together an easy to install, good performing, eye-catching, quiet, stable, and most importantly, safe water cooling solution, which they did in the form of complete water cooling cases.

    Koolance Exos-AL Review

    "Legitimate" liquid cooling has long been relatively crude, often requiring components to be purchased individually, and a large compliment of power tools to install. Lacking ease of use and established support, these kits were simply not designed for the general market.

    Of course, things have changed today, and water cooling is no longer just "relatively crude." Some people will opt for the relatively crude method of drilling their own water blocks, pulling a radiator from a junkyard, slicing up their cases to mount a reservoir, etc. But by following a water cooling guide on a tech website or forum, it is easy to pick out the necessities: pump, radiator, water block, Koolance Exos-AL Reviewreservoir, tubing, correct fittings, and distilled water, then hook the system together and have a top-notch water cooler. For another group of users however, this is still to difficult and the lack of guaranteed performance, ease of installation, and safety is major concern.

    This is where Koolance comes in. The company's trademark Exos water cooling kit has been recognized many times as the best external kit for new and professional users alike. Reviewed here, the Exos is truly one of the best self-contained water cooling systems that anyone can use. But as there is always room for improvement, and Koolance has improved on the Exos with the Exos-Al.

    Today, Dev Hardware will review the Koolance Exos-Al. The major change from the Exos to the Exos-Al is the unit's construction material. Featuring high-quality, brushed aluminum, the new Exos-Al is lighter than the previous version. Koolance's latest water block, the CPU-300-H06 will be used with the Exos as we face the Koolance solution against water cooling kits from Zalman and Global WIN.
