How to modify your Coolit Freezone for 20% performance gain!!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Below is a guide how to modify your Coolit Freezone to give you 10-20% more cooling power

The first thing you need to do is make two simple purchases.

1) Buy a Very high CFM 120mm fan

2) Buy a 120mm to 92 mm adapter there are only a few options of these

Remove the 92 mm fan and install the adapter and 120mm fan this will help drop temps alone because it pulls heat away from the chillers and reservior. The 92mm fan on the back of the Coolit Freezone moves about 60-80CFM. Using the adapter and new fan should help drop temperatures on the small reservoir. Please be aware that the larger the CFM moved on a fan the louder it is. If you dont like the extra noise then please dont attempt this portion of it!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you have done that to make the system work on full power all the time simply look at the unit. There are a total of 4 wires that come out of the unit, black, red, white, clear 4 pin power cord.

Hook up everything as stated in the manual except for one simple change. DON’T PLUG IN THE BLACK TIPPED WIRE!! Simply leave this unplugged. This wire regulates the power of the chillers on the unit. If you unhook this it bypasses the setting controls on the unit and forces it to run full power all the time. Note that this runs the chillers higher than what you can set it on the unit.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Also, please remove any and all AS5 from the heatsink that comes from the factory there is just to much on there. Go to AS5 website and apply it appropriately to your chipset. Espeically with quads.

I would only recommend doing the above modifications if you have a need for additional cooling such as a Quadcore chip or an Overclocked Dual core. These chips will run warmer than ambient air almost always so condensation isn’t really a problem.


If you do both of the things above you can gain about 10-20%more cooling power.

NOTE!!!!! Doing any of these modifications will VOID your warranty. So if you have problems with your unit please ensure you restore its default conditions before you send it in. The people at that company are very cool and helpful.

oh goto say iv unplugged the temp sensor(black connector)and temps take longer to drop to my normal temp with lead plugged in=25c so no gain there actually its worse due to time taken to reach temp...shall do fan mod when adapter arrives.
Its never enough
