Is a Koolance Cooling System worth it?

I'm thinking about getting a Koolance cooling system for my 1080 TI Poseidon. I seen on Hardocp forums the guy benchmarking the video card I have using one and this give me the idea to invest into it. I see that these are external and don't really require much thought to put together. I was wondering do you think it's a good move?

I have used one for benching. It cools well. I use the EX2-1055 3 fan model, but the 755 model does well at about 590watt of cooling.

That said, aestheically a plumbed system in your case is nicer. It looks better and is all self contained, if that matters.

From a pure cooling point of view, however, both the 1055 (900watts) and 755 (590watts) are hard to beat in cooling performance for a 360 or 240 configuation. You are always getting cool ambient air to cool your radiator and not dumping any warm air into your case.

So it depends on your priorities.

Why not just get one of their radiators and drive bay coolers? keep it all internal.

Radiators aren't hard to mount, and a drive bay pump/reservoir combo saves space and makes mounting it easy.

i think he's talking about those really fancy external AIO+sensor things they sell. Or maybe the chiller? Or maybe the externals are so expensive because they use chiller properties? IDK. I've never seen one in action. I just know products like it are why some cases still include external tubing ports.

I'd 100% go with a solution like this if I were ever to build a tiny PC.Mine would likely just be home made.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
