    Default Koolance CPU-380I Waterblock

    At PureOC we are not only hardware junkies but we’re also water cooling addicts. It’s sad to see Danger Den ceased its operation. On the other hand, it is a joy to see another new water block released. Liquid cooling has become more popular these days in the PC cooling world, but if you’re not yet ready dive into the deep end of the water cooling pool by yourself, then let us take you there vicariously.Fans of Koolance might notice that the company recently launched the new flagship CPU waterblock. Continuing its two tones theme, the CPU-380 block is an innovative design which incorporates some of the most up-to-date water block technologies.The CPU-380 might be Koolance’s most eye catching CPU water block. It sports Acetal black and nickel plating, and is a dazzling compliment to any Intel or AMD motherboards. Koolance is no longer including both AMD and Intel mounting mechanisms in one-complete-package. The CPU-380 is now available in Intel or AMD version, the block is designated with a capitol letter “i” for Intel and “a” for AMD.Today we’re going to take a dive with the CPU-380I to find out how this new flagship waterblock stacks up against the other competitors.

    Stellar performance! cant believe its almost a full 3c cooler than the Apogee HD!!! Amazing indeed...looks like im going to say bye bye to my Apogee HD and hello Koolance 380i

    Deton i also noticed you've used 1/2" tubing on the 3/8 compression fittings during the test did you test it without the cuplers fitted?

    Cooling: 2x MCP655 pump, XSPC AX360, Koolance RP-452X Dual Bay Res, Scythe S-Flex @1500RPM, DIY Glycol Coolant, 1/2″ Tubing.

    I tried telling everyone that this was an excellent block, but so many people gave me a bunch of crap because Koolance made it. As far as I'm concerned, Koolance makes excellent products. Great job on the review Tony !

    Bully, where did you see 3/8" fittings?
    They are all 1/2" my friend.

    Have you guys notice all microfin design blocks response well with high flow setup?

    Whenever, I have the time then I will test the Kyros XT to see how this block response with 2 pumps but I don't think it will be over 1 degree though because its internal design is similar to the Apogee HD.
