My System Specs

Default Coolit Domino

Hey guys I was thinking of venturing into the world of liquid cooling and while I am not interested nor have the time to maintain a full functional H20 system I figured this would be a suitable and very inexpensive solution.

Domino A.L.C.

NCIX.com - Buy Coolit Systems Domino CPU Water Cooling System AUTO-REGULATED & Maintenance Free LGA1366/LGA775/AM2 - DM-1000 In Canada.

What is your take and experience "Linus"

It's functional, but limited by the 120mm radiator.

Same is true of all other 120mm integrated solutions, be they from Swiftech, Thermaltake, Asetek, CoolIT, etc.

You should get performance about on par with a Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme, which is nothing to sneeze at, especially with how much lighter the load on your CPU socket is.

Hey Eagle Eye,

I was actually looking at this recently for a friends build (who really feels the same way).

Legit Reviews - Coolit Domino A.L.C. Water Cooler Review - Water Cooling For Just $79

Thats a good review of the Item in question. I would take there advice and bolt the unit to the back (no mods required) rather than using those rubber pieces.
Other than that, for the price, its how DIY kits should have been made.
I hope the other companies out there are listening. *cough* Thermaltake *cough*

If you get it, and hook it up, let us know how it works out!

Best Regards,
ST


P.S. - Linus, you never did respond back to my PM lol!

I would like to see a socket 775 review its seems most reviews are beginning to use the Core i7 as their testbed and I can't determine only assume that it will do just as well maybe even better on a LGA775 test bed.

LOL @ AkG , I'll wait and see to, I like having multiple opinions on a subject before I suggest a yes or no to my friend.

But Eagle Eye, I think the Thermal Output of an i7 is higher than the old LGA 775, so one would assume it would perform better on the older setup.
(someone with an i7 correct me if I'm wrong, I haven't owned one yet).

I wish I could find the shrouds it has on the Rad..

Most likely he has a Freezone Elite, a very powerful (yet different) beast. Not putting the domino down, but the Elite will smoke it...as it should :)

Of Course it will AkG, TEC Hybrid vs Sealed Water cooler is no contest really.

The Elite is one amazing unit, but it does command a hefty price.
I like How the Domino is setup, I just wish these DIY all-in-one kits had software controls/monitors like the Elite has. One day perhaps.

Look forward to seeing your guys take on it,

Regards,
ST
