Introduction

CoolIT made a splash (no pun intended) at the Consumer Electronics Show in 2006 with the introduction of their Freezone Liquid CPU Cooler. A self-contained liquid cooler was nothing new in 2006, but what made the Freezone unique is the fact that it used TEC (thermal electric cooler, also known as a peltiers) devices to chill the liquid in the cooling system for an added level of performance. Hardware review sites and computer enthusiasts alike were buzzing about the potential of the Freezone. CoolIT has since went on to develop a few other new products which we showed you during our 2007 CES Coverage of CoolIT's Booth last month (including the Freezone which is still very popular), but at the end of the day, we were still left wondering if the year-old Freezone would be able to tackle the demands of today's dual core processors. Clearly the gang at CoolIT has faith in their product and thus agreed to send over a review sample for us to put through the paces.





The Freezone arrived in a stylish retail package, complete with product specifications / features and even a chart detailing comparisons between the Freezone and "the competition" although, no specific names are mentioned. The box looks good and does its job of grabbing your attention and showing you what the product has to offer. Speaking of offerings, a complete list of specifications and features can be found below, borrowed from FrozenCPU.com



The Freezone has a lot going for it right out of the gate. CoolIT claims the Freezone can go head to head with the best watercooling systems, right out of the box. The "kit" comes pre-filled and pre-assembled so all you need to do is install the cooling block on your processor and mount the chiller assembly in your case. Yes, everything fits inside the case; yet another advantage over some watercooling kits on the market today. With six TECs employed to keep temperatures at a minimum, the hype that the Freezone has generated over the past year could have some validity... but the only way to find out for sure is to test it for ourselves. Continue ahead as we check out the package contents and take a closer look at the Freezone...
