CoolIT Systems FreeZone SLi Cooler

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
CoolIT Systems is arguably the most innovative computer enthusiast oriented company out there. When they first broke out into the computer enthusiast scene with their FreeZone CPU Cooler, no one had ever seen anything like it. Their use of TECs to chill the coolant in this self-contained liquid cooling kit was unlike any before it. Not only was their design innovative, but effective as well. With rave reviews from any reviewer lucky enough to get his hands on one, it looked like CoolIT Systems was here to stay, especially with companies such as Alienware and Dell using their products. However, as incredible a piece of hardware the FreeZone was, it was still out of reach for those enthusiasts on a budget. Recognizing this, CoolIT Systems released the Eliminator, which is basically a scaled down version of the FreeZone. Even though the Eliminator's performance is not on the same level as the FreeZone, it still eliminates heat quite nicely.

CoolIT Systems continues to keep up with the latest trends in computer hardware as evidenced by their venture into Quad SLi cooling and now their single SLi cooler. I am been lucky enough to have the honor of being one of the first to review their new FreeZone SLi cooler. This new component is a modified FreeZone with the cooling capacity to tame even the hottest GPUs of today. The CoolIT Systems FreeZone SLi Cooler is compatible with all NVIDIA GeForce cards from the 6800 to the 8800 and all ATI Redeon series cards from the X1300 to the X1900.

For this review I will be using a pair of EVGA GeForce 8800GTX graphics cards in SLi. I will be testing the limits of these two cards on stock air cooling and with the FreeZone SLi Cooler to compare the results. I have high expectations for this piece of hardware and I know I won't be disappointed.

any news on this review? been waiting to hear something but still can't find ANY real-world performance data on the web. does that mean there are problems? i know the freezone cpu cooler was an awsome piece of hardware (though it had some limitations in terms of cooling very hot systems). i'm dying to see how well it would handle a couple 8800s in sli. those things get pretty hot.
