    Default CoolIT Freezone Elite v2

    CoolIT has released an update of the Freezone Elite, the v2. It is aptly called a revision since the design has not been overhauled; its more of an evolution and includes tweaking in specific areas. The TEC technology is still the same, and the overall setup generally remains unchanged as well, but there are a few minor changes. So, what improvements are found in the v2 and how is the cooling performance in this new Freezone Elite? Let's take a closer look at the Freezone Elite v2 and find out.

    Great Review Deton, It would have been nice to see the Elite preform a little better with higher clocks, but I guess that would nudge in to the Boreaus's class of cooler.

    Great review deton, i was surprised that i kinda struggled to keep the heat down at 4ghz my assumption for this TEC cooling was somewhere between the Boreas and a highend customized watercooling setup.

    Price is also a serious consideration factor here

    Yeah, CoolIt rates the Elite is capable to cool up to 250W max. 4Ghz is over the Elite limit as you can see in the results.

    Like smduff said, if you want better performance then you have to go with the Boreas.

    TBH, I don't think you can find any TEC chiller more efficient than the Elite and Boreas. If you use more powerful Peltier, you'll run into couple problems. Power comsuption; a dedicate PSU needed to power the cooler. Heatsink aircooler can't cope with all the heat from the TECs.

    Good review Deton. Most people that buy the Elite will not be running their chips at 4GHz, for people that do run chips at 4Ghz and higher, like you mentioned CoolIt does have other cooling options available .

    UPS just delivered the Elite, so I'll try to install it in the 800D and see what kind of temps I get with the 980X this weekend.

    yeah, try to give the chip a mild OC to see how the cooler cope with the 6x cores.

    Hi Guys,

    This is Barry w/ CoolIT just wanted to pop in and thank the PUREOC for another thorough, honest and easy to understand review.

    As someone who has explained this tech over and over again, I can attest that sometimes its easier than others and PUREOC has again demonstrated their mastery of knowledge regarding our TEC products.

    I am looking forward to having them review our new ECO A.L.C (rad based) and Vantage A.L.C (which is really going to be something revolutionary!)

    Cheers!

    B

    Great review thanks Deton!
    I am actually surprised that the unit did not perform better at the 4.0 GHz level. The Domino ALC unit I have will keep my 920 DO at the exact same temps that you posted when clocked @ 4.0GHz under full load.

    For the price tag I, and I think most people would expect far better cooling performance when overclocking to the 4.0 level.

    @4hams;
    if you really understand how TEC works you know the reason why. Let see how I'm going to explain this straight forward to understand.

    Let assuming you have 260w for the heat source and the pelties is capable to chill up to 250w which is 10w under power. Let say the TECs putting out another 100w which the heatsink/fan need to dissipate up to 360w total.

    Ok, if you take the exact amount of TECs from the Elite and put then on water cooling instead of aircooler. You will have better temps. The problem with this is the cost.

    Thanks for the reply Deton.
    I have done some reading on the Pelties principals of cooling and understand what you are saying. My point was that the cost of the unit for the cooling ability it has is very high.

    There are alot of people worldwide that get the same readings for temperature using high end Air coolers and such at a fraction of the price...

    Current MCC software has a problem working on systems that have the i7-980x installed. And maybe with all Hexa Core CPUs. Verified on two different systems. One running Win 7 x64 Ultimate and the other running Win XP Pro x64. Both had the latest OS updates. So did the MCC and the Freezone Elite controller firmware.

    CoolIt is actively addressing the matter. If you need something that works out of the box today you may want to wait a bit, or choose an alternate solution.

    An yes, with the i7-980x running at 4.3GHz being loaded down with LinX the Freezone Elite will eventually be overloaded with the heat dumping from the CPU. YMMV but the run times I had for several runs were about 7.5 minutes before crying uncle with the CPU cores up to 101C.

    Big overclockers running 7/24 at full load need an bigger solution than the Freezone Elite. Anyone else should be well served by this kit.

    The only real complaint is the usage of MIM screws in the kit to hold down the waterblock. The screw metal is cheap, brittle, low strength, and does not match the quality of the rest of this fine kit. Overtghten, even by a relatively small amount, and you'll be up for a postage charge and some time cooling your heels getting a replacement delivered from Canada. Thankfully CoolIt is very understanding about cost of the screw itself.

    I have to say the Freezone Elite DOES provide a very palatable solution for its intended use. Once the software is updated (and the screw quality addressed) the kit will be a perfect compact and unitized Water-TEC-Air cooled solution for the plug-and-go enthusiast.

    As someone who has explained this tech over and over again, I can attest that sometimes its easier than others and PUREOC has again demonstrated their mastery of knowledge regarding our TEC products.

    I am looking forward to having them review our new ECO A.L.C (rad based) and Vantage A.L.C (which is really going to be something revolutionary!)

    Cheers!
