Let me put it this way - I just swapped out my Koolance system for air.

Not to say that their stuff is BAD, but their waterblocks are poorly designed compared to competing solutions, and their aluminum radiators basically require you to use their waterblocks or face the prospect of galvanic corrosion. Compared to building the system yourself, their pricing is pretty brutal as well, and they'll nickel and dime you into poverty on stuff like fittings and adapters. Put simply, there is much better for much cheaper.

That said, I rather like their basic fan controllers (although I think they're only available as part of their cooling systems). You just plug in a standard temperature probe, and it'll vary the speed automatically within a preset range. Or you can override it with a button push. Extremely simple, surprisingly hard to find elsewhere.
