We test and review the CoolIT C240 ALC ECO CPU cooler. Though these standalone kits are pretty darn good, some of you would prefer to see a product based on not just that 120mm radiator/fan size, but a dual-radiator 240mm product. CoolIT listened, learned and adapted. As such a couple of weeks ago they started selling a dual-radiator (ALC ECO 240) liquid cooling kit.
The products are all based on the ECO series, yet with that bigger radiator and two fans. This should help shave off another 5 to 10 degrees C of the processor temperature.

"For those that do not know me, my name is Deanzo. I am an extreme overclocker from New Zealand who competes in online and live global competitions hosted by the likes of GIGABYTE and MSI. What that means is, I like to torture hardware with sub zero cooling; dry-ice and liquid nitrogen (LN2) are my preferred weapons of choice to obtain the highest levels of performance.
For my first article here at TweakTown I am putting the mainstream AMD Athlon II X4 630 on the chopping block. How far can I push it with only a 14 times multiplier to play with? How will the CPU and motherboard hold up to minus 180 degrees celcius? And of course, there’s the all important benchmark numbers. I would be lying if I said I wasn't hoping to see a 6 GHz screenshot."
