For Sale:
Complete Koolance Exos Water Cooling System

Will Ship To: Anywhere

This is a complete water cooling system, including blocks. When I first started water cooling, I went with a "kit" system because I could be sure that everything worked together properly. I've added to it, within the same product line.

I just replaced the 3 fans with brand new ones, as they had become less than silent. I ran it overnight on the bench and am happy to say that it is once again silent.

Koolance claims that this will remove 700 watts of heat. I don't know how much it handles with the fans on lowest (silent) speed.

  • Main Unit: Exos. This easily sits on top of a tower case.
    • Bracket contains hose pass-through and power board. This will plug into the SW header on the motherboard and shut off the PC in an overheating emergency.
    • The blue hoses connect to the main unit using auto-shut-off quick disconnect fittings.
    • Three 80mm fans, adjusts speed based on temperature probe connected to the CPU block.
    • The radiator inside the unit is 120×240mm. The fans are "pulling" with shrouds.
  • All the components have quick-disconnect fittings, and there are some extras.
  • CPU Block — similar to this one except for the connector size. I've most recently used it on AM2 and AM3 CPUs, so I know the mounting hardware fits that just fine. I don't know about a new Intel, but Koolance has been good at getting updated mounts before.
  • General Purpose Blocks (2) — this one and this one (low profile). I've used them variously for cooling a video card and motherboard chips.
  • Dual HDD — this one mounts a hard drive on either side of the pillow. They are very simple to change. I put generic 3½ to 5¼″ mounting brackets on one of the drives and inserted the pair in the drive bay. If you only need one HDD, don't bother with their dummy cap plate: just attach an unused old HDD to the other side.
  • HDD coolers (2) — Two single-drive cooling plates, screw to the electronics side of a drive. You'll need fresh thermal putty or sheet. I notice that new drive coolers came with a small sheet as the electronics of the drive are now very small. Originally I covered the entire bottom, as I used 10000RPM SCSI drives that would run hot.
  • Hose is attached to most of the components as "leads" that have quick-disconnects on the ends, so they can be simply plugged together. Some of the hose is discolored and less flexible, but still sound. A piece of unused hose includes a label to easily note the size. I originally picked it up at a local hardware store, and it is just as cheaply replaced.
  • Includes a little over half a liter Koolance coolant. I've only run it with Koolance coolant.
  • Includes a little filling funnel, and a "lucky coin" that I use to unscrew the cap.

Get a complete system for a fraction of what you would spend to get started with water cooling. Note that with any external unit or "kit" you still have to buy blocks separately.

I've done very well with this, and I hope I can pass it along to someone who will continue to appreciate it. I'm asking USD $200 for the whole thing, Exos and blocks and misc. parts.

If you're willing to part out, let me know. I'm interested in one of the general purpose blocks, the QDCs and the HDD coolers.

Perhaps. Which of the general purpose blocks, and which/how many HDD blocks?

Which model are the single HDD blocks? I'm interested in the GPU-180-H06 (and the memory heat sinks if you still have them) and both of the single HDD coolers if they're compatible with my system.

I don't know a model number on the single HDD coolers, and Koolance doesn't show them in their catalog anymore. It screws to the board side of a standard 3½″ HDD, and the long screws are included. You need a new thermal pad to cover the electronics (or the motor area if applicable); I had used moldable putty that sets to the shape, and is single-use.

It is much lower profile than the these and others I see for sale today of similar design. You have some chance of fitting the HDD+block in a single 3½″ bay without blocking the adjacent one, depending on how much air-flow gap you have betweeen them. This is the thinnest HDD cooler I've seen and the only one that has any potential of that.

I've also stacked two drives (with coolers) directly together using Velcro tape and mounted the stack in a tray style mount. The normal way of using a tray style drive mount is with screws through the board side of the drive (rather than in the side) and the cooler uses those same holes.

I think I still have the little memory heat sinks that came with the GPU-180. I'll check to see how many there are.

I was more asking because I have tray style drives in the bottom of my case at the moment, but I guess it actually won't matter. I can just mount the drives into the 5.25" bay areas. There should be 8 memory heat sinks with the GPU-180. I'll take all of the HDD coolers then.

Out of curiosity, how do these types of "kits" compare against a full custom loop, or something like an xspc rasa?

if you're separating, how much for just the unit? what size connectors can it take?

Let's see... comparing against the RASA RS240, which has the same size radiator, RASA doesn't state just how powerful it is, while Koolance rates their kits as to how much heat dissipation it is meant for. It really is integrated and engineered to go together, rather than parts sold in the same package deal. It is an external unit that combines the pumps, radiator, fans, reservoir, and brains in one chassis.

I don't know how powerful the pumps are in comparison, but it claims to be good for 700W of dissipated power.
It has 3 80mm fans while the RASA kit has 2 120mm fans, but it also has a well engineered shroud rather than just mounting the fans directly against the radiator, and is nicely trimmed out with the enclosure.

The CPU block was awsome when it was new. The mounting is wonderful, with a single torque-limited thumb screw to give the proper pressure and uniform distribution. The bottom was lapped optically flat (it has wear scratches now) and gold plated. It's much "finer" than new ones, IMHO.

The RASA kit doesn't include a "brain". This shows the temperature at the CPU block, adjusts the fan speed, and even hits the power button (which you might set to hibernate or sleep) in an overheat emergency.

I had no trouble cooling a new high-power AM3 (hex core) CPU with the fans on minimum. With the fans replaced (I put in brand new ones), that will be as silent as it gets.

You might need to obtain new mounting parts for the latest Intel sockets. I don't know if the grab-bag of parts included originally adapts to that. I do know it fits the latest AMD.

New, the Koolance external units are much more expensive than the RASA kit, and don't include blocks or accessories.

With the RASA RS240, you need a pair of free bays for the reservoir and room to mount the radiator somewhere, which would either be internal to the case OR you still need to arrange for pass-through and finishing it off; you apparently are intended to mount the fans directly to the radiator, or sandwiched between the radiator and the case (no shroud). The Koolance is an external unit that sits nicely on top of the tower case. For passthrough it has a bracket and tubing that is multi-layer cloth like a garden hose, not bare clear tubing.

Hope that helps!

Oh wow, that was insanely helpful, as I'm an admitted nooob that hasnt even finished my new box yet and wc virgin wheee.gif. Question, coulnt quite tell from teh picture, but the "casing" or shell on the exos, is it removeable, including the face? i'd hate to mount this huge silver thing on top of an all black case.
Damn, you more than answered the rest of the questions i had piled up. How much are you asking for "what's left" or is that the 130?
