Alienware Dual-Zone Liquid Cooling question? - Page 4

post #31 of 33
Yeah, its impossible because it breaks the second law of thermo, but it looks like they are using a TEC on the gpu loop. Look at the bottom right of the case. So they might be telling the truth for the gpu loop, but not the cpu loop. From what I have found coolit is making all of their systems, so I don't think its too far fetched.

Petra's will sell you a solid cpu set up for like $220- or a really good one for $250

althought yeah, a good setup will cost $. especially if you want GPU or chipset cooling. Gpu blocks cost a bundle.

you are correct. Coolit makes all of Alienware cooling systems.

So it is a coolit system. I have a freezone CPU cooler from Coolit on my quad right now, and i get around 38 degrees (not sure what my ambient is) OC'ed at 3.6 with 1.48 vcore. I agree though with everyone else, you will not see a huge improvement over a tuniq or a TRUE. If it was me, i would buy the system, and if you do not want it, resell it. The standard freezone goes for around 100-125 here on OCN.
