burned out

Anonymous, Newegg
2 May 2010
  • Summary: it probably wasnt the manufacturers fault. it could just have been faulty
  • Pros: worked really well for about 20 minutes.
  • Cons: after awhile of playing i began to smell the distinct smell of something electronic burning. I opened the case to check it out and a fuse must have blown b/c the fan speed was then stuck on ultra high. I ignored it because it still worked, and I'm too lazy to return it after I put all the stuff t...

Seemed alright

  • Summary: Aside from all that the system does keep my 980x cool cpu temps reading at 23c as Im writing this.
  • Pros: Lots of pictures for easy install. Looks cool.
  • Cons: The pump. Booted my new rig up for the first time got windows and drivers installed and rebooted. Then I noticed the pump's blue led started to flicker then shut off compleatly to the red beeping. Looked it over noticed a small crack where the refill cap is and noticed the pump was still running ...

Perfect all in one system at this price point

Ian G., Newegg
25 March 2010
  • Summary: PLEASE REMEMBER - Your CPU is never going to IDLE at a lower temp than the ambient air temperature. If you keep it really warm where your tower is, the CPU is going to run hotter. The purpose of this unit is to wick heat away quicker than air cooling.
  • Pros: The system comes complete with everything you need to install it. Despite what some other reviewers said, the directions were very clear and easy to understand. There is no lack of pictures for those who are more visual to boot. The added fan on the CPU helps keep the MOSFETs and Northbridge cool...
  • Cons: For a mid-ATX case, it's a little bit of a tight fit. This really isn't a con, just a heads up. Also, you do have to use 90% of the fluid when you install the system. Including more fluid would have been nice, but you do have enough.

Update from my 07' review

Glenn R., Newegg
20 March 2010
  • Summary: Have used this since June 07' and no problems at all. Yes it did develop a small crack at the fill port at top after almost 2 years but never leaked. It does however evaporate like any cooling system and has to be kept topped off of course.
  • Pros: Cools well , dependable , easy to install , all needed accessories in kit. Almost 3 years now and still works great.
  • Cons: Was out of stock at Newegg at time of purchase so had to buy elsewhere. Hard to find Blue coolant. Clear tubes discolor over time. ( Cheap to replace from local hardware stores ).

Great system

Anonymous, Newegg
12 March 2010
  • Summary: Phenom II x4 965BE @24*C idle 46*C 100% load after an hour of testing Set up in just CPU loop
  • Pros: Low price Easy Install External Radiator Good coolant
  • Cons: The radiator is aluminum instead of all copper design. This just means you should be aware of galvanic corrosion after a while. The fan setup is a little loud on full speed, but...Nothing is perfect.

Nice product

Spencer O., Newegg
22 February 2010
  • Summary: Was my first attempt at Water cooling and it worked out great. I had read hte pump can fail, but in just over 2 years mine is still going strong. I did buy a larger rad later (and its loads better then the stock one). Having a kit with everything and easy to install is nice.
  • Pros: Works as intended Easy to install
  • Cons: Rad is a bit small for any heavy OC

Good setup for the price...

Gerhardt V., Newegg
16 January 2010
  • Summary: Running a Q6600 @ 3 GHz, it idles right at room temp with radiator fan running at minimum. At full load, it has never gone above 35 degrees. Also, I was lucky that I had a Gigabyte 3d Aurora 570 case(Early version of the Sumo 5115, for the most part), so installation was a snap since the case was...
  • Pros: Good system, especially for newcomers to liquid cooling. Simple setup, and everything is there. I also like having an external, case attached radiator. The radiator shroud does a good job of protecting the radiator as well. The low coolant alarm and shutoff feature is nice as well. Also like that...
  • Cons: Can be a pain in the backside to install, depending on what kind of case you have. Would have preferred a copper radiator, even at the incurred price increase. Was not impressed by the coolant.

User Review

  • Summary: I recommend advanced users to buy all their watercooling parts from respected companies like Danger Den, Swiftech, EK, etc. These companies are the best for water cooling. I suggest any water cooler to read on them
  • Pros: Good starter kit for beginners.
  • Cons: bit of an hassle to install. quality isnt as good as individual makers.

it was ok

Anonymous, Newegg
20 November 2009
  • Pros: nice pump, block and hoses cools well too.
  • Cons: when i started it up one of the valves started leaking from the bottom from one of the places you can put a screw i just bypassed it because i am not adding blocks so it is pointless also the humongous radiator blocked all my video connections so i had to drill holes in my case and mount it somew...
