1 out of 5 eggsDo NOT get this product! I repeat do NOT

Pros: None.

Cons: After about year and a half, I heard a loud pop and the unit started beeping. It leaked coolant all over the top of my video card, motherboard, CPU, and even one stick of ram. I still don't know the extend of the damage as I have to get a new heat sink to test every component. I am pretty sure the video card did not make it, though. This unit is flawed by design. I am very surprised they still sell this product, with all the money people who bought this product have lost on damaged equipment. I am really surprised there isn't a Class Action Suit in the works. But don't take my word for it, look at the high percentage of 1 stars reviews in this site.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Heatsink and Quiet

Pros: I've had one of these for over 2 years. It's worked flawlessly on my overclocked Core i7-920 CPU. The fan is very quiet - much quieter than a comparable air-cooled heatsink.

Cons: Seems to take a little longer than it should to ramp up fan speed when the CPU is stressed (using Prime95). Otherwise, would have given it 5 stars. However, it does ramp up the fan speed and does so sufficiently fast to protect the CPU (and how often do you really run all your cores at 100% anyway?).

Other Thoughts: Would be nice if there were an option to connect the digital display and controls to a front-facing 5 1/2" slot for easier access and viewing.

1 out of 5 eggsNot the best cooler to buy,,,

Pros: *Compact design didn't block any RAM channels like my air cooler did. I have tall RAM heatsinks, and space was an issue until I bought this.

*Different operating modes gave me some control between better cooling or low noise.

*Side-panel LCD display gives useful information.

Cons: *Bulky, almost didn't fit in my case.

*Gave hotter temperatures (>10*C) than my air cooler did that I bought for $30 (I might have applied the thermal paste poorly, though)

*Louder than my air cooler mentioned above.

*It exploded. After two loud bangs, I opened my computer to find that two metal rivets holding the side panel down broke after some of the thermal pipes expanded. My computer suffered no damage, luckily. I was able to remove the device before it started leaking. I'm trying to RMA, and customer support is not the fastest. They want to send me another, but I have no plans on putting another bomb into my computer.

Other Thoughts: The Cool It Systems ECO or Vantage looks more promising, and have had better reviews. Domino owners can buy either one for a generous discount, which I will probably do.

1 out of 5 eggsBEWARE

Pros: Great cooling, LCD read out.

Cons: One this unit the pump fails often. When the pump fails it beeps for 12 hours. If your like me and leave your comp on all the time ie. night, you wont notice the beeping. After the pump fails the liquid boils and causes serperations of fittings and on mine it split the radiator in half cause catastrophic failure.

Other Thoughts: CoolIT Discontinued this product in placement of their ECO line up. After the coolant splattered my comp they were very helpful in resolve the issue and have sent me a new eco. The down side is the ECO has no lcd.

1 out of 5 eggsBeware

Pros: When it worked my ALC was ok cooled well but was a little loud, compared to what I expected.

Cons: Pump went out after a few months about 6-4 don't remember exactly when I put this machine together.

Other Thoughts: The big thing is this, I can not get an RMA from CoolIT, I lost my receipt and they will not take responsibility for their product. It's a two year warranty, It hasn't even been out for a year, but they will not support it without a receipt. If you have a good product I would think you'd want to support it. Their attitude seems very short sighted to me.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY, Good while it lasted..

Pros: Kept my i7 OCed at 3.8 at very nice temps

Cons: The issue everyone already knows about, the leaking and destruction of rigs. See other thoughts...

Other Thoughts: I bought this thing the day it came out. Got it and set it up in my i7 gaming rig with a geForce GTX 285 on an Asus P6T deluxe. The thing worked great, until January of 2010, when I turned on my PC one morning to find it wouldnt boot up. After examining it, i found liquid had leaked on my video card which was directly below this cooler. The liquid spread and hit my motherboard as well, destroying 600 dollars worth of computer parts. I called the Coolit company, and they claim the first batch of coolers that were sent out had improper packaging, causing the hoses to be shipped in a way that made them become faulty after a while. The only thing they offered to do was send me another Coolit Domino, one that was packaged properly and had been tested against leaking. I still have that new CoolIt sitting in my junk box in my closet, because I will never trust another pre-built watercooler again. Do yourself a favor and buy a Thermalright CoGage True Spirit or similar cooler and lap ur cpu

1 out of 5 eggsBlock leaked

Pros: when it doesn't leak, works great

Cons: less than two years coolant seeped out of block, fried mobo and chip

Other Thoughts: Had this system in three other rigs, pulled them all out to examine, the others appear to still be sealed, but not taking a chance

1 out of 5 eggsA problem waiting to happen

Pros: Cheap

Cons: After 3 months of use the water cooler pipes broke and destroyed my video cards, ( hd4870 x2 in crossfire x) my zalman 1000 watt power supply, creative xfi sound card, and my asus x58 motherboard. So stay away from this product, It cost me $100's in damage.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY

Pros: It worked for a little while...

Cons: So I bought a Domino and it worked fine until yesterday...

The CPU block cracked open while my computer was running spraying coolant all over my motherboard and videocard frying both. Yeah not a hose, or something else, literally the side of the CPU block.

I contacted Cool It about this problem. Their response was that they would send me a new cooler from another line as they are discontinuing the Domino "for obvious reasons". I requested that the parts damaged due to their faulty unit be replaced. Their response was you should get those replaced under the warranty of the manufacture. Im sorry Cool It but you're exploding unit is NOT covered under my other components warranty.

Bottom line is this unit has cost me over $600, and I would highly advise everyone to stay away from this company and their products.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy ANYTHING FROM THIS COMPANY.
