The Koolance Exos-Al is truly a phenomenal external water cooling kit. There are negatives like the loose slot interface and small 1/4" tubing, but the Exos-Al is by far the best performing kit we've ever seen, in fact, this Exos-Al aids overclocking in ways other kits simply can't.
The Exos-Al brings the best of both words - quiet cooling and superb cooling performance - together in one, easy to install, safe, and mobile external unit, topping it off with a stylish aluminum finish. Koolance products have been known to be high quality, and the Exos-Al is a perfect example. The kit comes with everything a user need to get a jump start on water cooling (with the exception of water blocks), and the CPU-300-H06 is a great choice for a CPU water block. The Exos-Al is priced around $200 and the block around $50. While this may seem pricey, understand that this is an investment that will last for many years and through numerous computer setups. The CPU-300-H06 is a very versatile water block and can be used with all current processors. And if the need for a different water block ever arises, the current water block being used with the Exos-Al can be easily swapped out. I highly doubt computers will output greater than 300W heat any time soon so the Exos-Al/CPU-300-H06 should last as a top notch cooling solution for a very long time. Hands down, the Koolance Exos-Al deserves the Dev Hardware Recommended award.
Just to recap the differences between the Exos and Exos-Al: The only changes are that the exterior is brushed aluminum (the rad was always aluminum), and there is a top fill hole now. The Exos-Al is approximately $20 more expensive than the regular Exos.
