The Cooler Master RL-HUC-E8U1 liquid-cooling system is an all-in-one solution for keeping your computer cool without the need for a large number of case fans. Installation is simplified thanks to its design flexibility. If your computer case has two vacant 5.25-inch drive bays, the main assembly can be installed up front. Or, if your desktop has an open power supply bay the unit can be installed there. No space inside? The unit can be kept externally as well.

The unit's three-speed adjustable cooling fan allows you to control both noise levels and cooling performance. It spins as slow as 2,000rpm generating 23dBA of noise, but under heavy loads, it can be pushed up to 3,100 or 4,600rpm. The complete package includes an LCD that can be mounted in your desktop's front panel for real-time system monitoring. The specialized cooling liquid’s temperature is customizable and the display will give you a CPU temperature warning and let you know when water levels are low.

Thanks to the assortment of included motherboard adapters, the cooling block can be used with AMD K7 (socket 462), K8 (socket 754/939/940) and Intel Pentium 4 (socket 478 / LGA 775) processors. Everything you need to get up and running, including coolant, tubes and cables, is included.

  • newegg Multiple Installation Options Install the Cooler Master Aquagate (RL-HUC-E8U1) into a standard computer case using two 5.25" drive bays, install it in a spare PSU , or even use it as an external device.
  • newegg Adjustable Fan Speed The built-in fan speed controller delivers 3 fan speed operating points (2000, 3100, and 4600 RPM) for exceptional cooling and quietness.
  • newegg Integrated LCD Screen The LCD on the Aquagate's front panel delivers real-time system monitoring and information you can use.
  • newegg Universal Socket Compatibility The bundled CPU water block features broad compatibility with all AMD socket AM2, 754, 939, 940 and Intel 478 and 775 platforms.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: Great entry level water-cooling with performance worth the money spent compared to other expensive kits. Dropped temps from low 50c to high 20c.

Cons: 1/4" ID tubing. Hard to upgrade with a second radiator without adapters. Little difficult for internal installation.

Other Thoughts: Make sure your cpu block fittings are on tight. Ran the system and forgot to tighten mine, ended up with a hair dryer and paper towels to clean up mess.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat bang for the buck

Pros: Considering the often high price of even entry level water cooling components, this is an excellent price for a pre-assembled and easy to use water cooling system

Cons: As noted by others, stock tubing is way too stiff, plastic clamps look easily breakable. Unit is louder than the stock fans in my Antec Sonata case(stock, it is built to be a quiet case) and a bit distracting.

Other Thoughts: Won't go back to air cooling. I think I have the water cooling bug and am now tempted to build my own system and spend way too much money doing it.

5 out of 5 eggsFANTASTIC VALUE!

Pros: It's quiet on the lowest setting. This is a VERY efficent cooling device. On the highest setting, I can overclock my e6400 to over 3ghz, stable!

Cons: It took over an hour to install, correctly. The fan can get VERY loud, if you're heavily overclocking your processor.

Other Thoughts: Got this for $xx after MIR!

Oh, and don't use the temperature gauge that came with this thing... it slips off your motherboard very easily, if you use the tape they provided. Just watch the water temperature!

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Cooling

Pros: This cooling system is impressive. An absolutely must-have for any Conroe owner doing mild to moderate overclocking. The system is completely adequate for voltages <1.45v. The unit is quiet, well laid out, unabtrusive, and well made.

Cons: There is an awful lot of cables to deal with, it would be best if coolermaster had chosen not to use full sized serial connectors inside of your case.. a much smaller cable could have been utilized to make life easier. As everyone has said, the lines are like glass.. they do not like to move.. however if you toss them into some lightly boiling water for a few moments, and quickly run to your computer, you can make them into very convienient semi-rigid lines which will maintain their location. They are crystal clear, and have a good finish. The unit is unusable at lvl3... it's insanely loud.

Other Thoughts: All in all this is a great unit. If you exceed 1.45vcore on a conroe you will experience heatsoaking at lvl2 speed. the unit is great, and there are MANY mods that can be done to the system to convert it to a 3/8" system for relatively little work invested. If you've always wondered about water cooling, get this system... can't guarantee you will be able to hold onto it for very long, since you'll be too excited to build your own high-end system, but regardless... you won't be disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic product

Pros: Absolutely fantastic cooling for the money. If you are overclocking a C2D, this is the cooler you want, I assure you. Average air temps for GOOD coolers (Zalman 9700, etc) are about 40c idle, 60c load on an E6600 @ ~3.2GHz. With the Aquagate @ the lowest speed you will idle at 28c idle, 39c load... and lower at fan setting 2... setting 3 is ridiculously loud. The install is so easy.. no experience with water cooling is absolutely no issue. The manual is huge, reminds me of a Ti-89 manual... almost an inch thick. It really is amazing just how effective this setup is.. just make sure you use quality thermal compound and you take your time with the setup making sure you do everything right.

Cons: Fan setting 3 is a little ridiculous, it's too loud to utilize. Internal mount has an awful amount of wires.. difficult to manage if your going for a clean case look.

Other Thoughts: You just can't beat this cooler.. anyone that says a good air cooler is just as good should be laughed at, it just isn't the case. Also, coolermaster's forums have plenty of how-tos to increase the flow from 1/4" 60 lph linesto 3/8" 160 lph lines... the pump can do 240+lph... very impressive.... so this cooler can be easily modified to a very high performing unit... however the 80mm rad will limit you to just a cpu on your loop, MAYBE a northbridge after mod.

5 out of 5 eggsvery good

Pros: it is very loud on 3 but i found out that if you switch the fan around it is a lot quieter it does a very good job on cooling everything and i have the cpu, the video card two hard drives the north bridge and the psu all water cooled with a sec. rad. and the temps never go above 105 so all in all a good buy for the price.

Cons: none at the time

Other Thoughts: the only bad thing about it is the tube it is not very flexable so my thoughts is to go the hardware store and buy some different tubes thats all but all in all very cheap system and does the job very well.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Seemed to cool alright but the beeping was to annoying to really get any load on the processor.

Cons: The temperature sensor would not work so the unit beeps constantly (telling you its not reading your cpu temp) if have not been able to get a hold of any one from coolermaster to get another one sent to me there customer service is horrible.

Other Thoughts: If it did not have this temp sensor problem it would be great especially at the price.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for price !

Pros: Good system for the price after rebates.

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: With the rebates I got it cheap and it was worth it.I'm not a big overclocker so it works for me.

4 out of 5 eggsAquagate Liquid Cooling

Pros: Reduced my CPU temp from 120-130 Degrees F to between 95-110 Degrees F over my stock AMD CPU cooler with an overclocked Atlhon 64 4000+ running at 2808MHz (over 408MHz Stock).

Cons: The water pump is a bit loud and drowns out the noise of my case fans.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Deal

Pros: Easy to install. Looks great. They are practicly giving them away.

Cons: Overall louder than the stock fan.

Other Thoughts: I suggest not shortining the hoses, rather just coil them like a spring inside the case. They actually act to dissapate more heat. AMD 4000 never gets over 34C.
