Joe at overclockers has a first look at Koolances' second entry HERE (http://www.overclockers.com/articles457/)
Looks VERY sweet!!:D
That really looks sweet Rando, beyond anything I need right now or the immediate future. The design looks interesting and I'm wondering what the price is gonna be.
Makes me want to Water Cool....NOT :p
The design is sure really PURRRTY :thumbsup:
IA's Aesthetic Approval
That's a coveted Award :D

It's a good looking case IMO, hopefully they did their homework with this one on some of the design issues. The intro unit was priced incredibly low, maybe this one will be too, or at least reasonable.:D

Well one of the first revies of the coolance cases i read at www.tomshardware.com just made me laugh, it was so badly deigned. But what i've just seen there is very nice.

The new koolance case dose look cool, to bad it cant cool worth its life...the hoses are to small and the waterblock is poorly designed.
If your gonna be spending that much on watercooling you should just buy a kit from dangerden...

That's what I was thinking when I read the review. Still using 1/4 pipes instead of the standard 3/8. Hell, everybody should use 1/2 pipes. But you do have to give them props for the new clamp design. It's pratically fool proof like your gas tank cap.
Excellent radiator is a plus. At least they are learning. But I don't know about the chimney fans and the stick out shroud.
One more thing. Man, stop shipping water with the system. Damn water's gonna cost me an extra $20 for shipping. No to mention major leakage if dropped or bumped.

Thats a few other things...
Koolance needs to use a copper coil radiator (like the DD cube or aqua coil from becooling) instead of aluminum radiator they are using now.
They also need to make a seprate compartment in the case just for the radiator so that no air from the computer gets heated or heats the radiator.
I really recommend people looking to go into watercooling not to get a pre-made setup like the koolance case. You will get much better results building the system yourself, and probely save a few bucks in the process.
