lol.. very much not.. lee63 will tell you.. I've been building, ocing, and modding machines for years.. I guess I just don't feel like ramming this thing into my machine with a shoehorn to get 100 or 200 mhz extra OC.. or something like that.

anyways.. I haven't sold it yet.. it's sitting on my office floor in purgatory... still thinking..

a lotta problems. Those people won't even RMA that thing.

But system works fine, sometimes....
i was getting 23-24c ldle stock . Max oc 3.9Ghz 42c ldle.
Still something's wrong.
I read on CoolIT's site that the Eliminator is geared more towards the AMD series while the FreeZone is geared towards the Intel family. People may want to keep that in mind as they are considering those products....

Well DiscipleDOC I'm glad that we like the cooler. But I do feel bad that not everyones experience has been the same.

I do too (kinda)...but I can't understand the problems people are having. I was able to hook mine up and get it working on the first try....

no that's not a problem. The system works fine! But the big disappointment is that this product is made of crap!

If you're pushing 1.5v into your CPU and running @ 3.4+ you would do better with Corsair's Nautilus 500:

Heck the TT Big Typhoon can match the CoolIT's load temp.

If you want something better than the Corsair Nautilus 500:

I have yet to see any TEC handle 1.5v @ 3.4+ well.

I love my Freezone. Works like a charm and took me 20 minutes to install.

Finally I was able to get the CooliT Freezone at reasonable price in Canada, from DirectCanada
$318 CAN about $270 USD and Free Shipping.
Also for ever waiting for the R600 and Barcelona before I decide on my next CPU and Graphic Card upgrade leaves me with too much cash to play with, so why not go little more exotic on the CPU cooling.
Originally I was going to buy the Tuniq Tower 120 at about $65 USD, according to many reviews the best air cooled heatsink also probably smarter buy.

I did read some negatives about the Freezone in this tread, gues some people got unlucky with defective unit, hope it wont happen to me but being in Canada the RMA should not be such a big deal also I do hear much more positive about the cooler not only from TiKiMaN1 ( who should get some commission from CooliT) and DiscipleDOC but also from many reviews
http://www.google.ca/search?q=Coolit...ient=firefox-a

Should get the cooler in couple days and will report how it works.
Right now my overclocked AMD X2 4200+ runs idle about 42C and Orthos StressPrime CPU &
RAM goes to 63C only after few minutes before I stop it.

Just received and installed the CoollT System Freezone and with my luck it's defective unit.
With the potentiometer set to maximum it's extremely noisy, at mid setting it's not too bad, I probably would tolerate it, if that noise was at high setting.

The fan speed jumps from about 25000 RPM to 65000 RPM which I'm sure is not right, sometime it shows about 3000 RPM, probably right but the extreme noise is same.
The reading is from ASUS PC Probe ll and the BIOS.

The potentiometer was set to maximum from the box, I doubt that's factory default setting so I almost believe CanadaDirect might have send me returned unit.

I tried the cooler only at maximum setting and the temperatures are GREAT, at least something I'm happy with.

My AMD Athlon x2 4200+ is overclocked to 2.65GHz and the Vcore is plus .200v
Temperatures with stock AMD cooler
Idle about 40C
Full load with Orthos Stress Prime CPU&RAM would stop in couple minutes at 60C (my set threshold at at PC Probe) so not sure how high it would go.

Temperatures with Coolit Freezone
Idle about 23C
Full load with Orthos Stress Prime CPU&RAM about 47C.

Did call the CooliT System and was switched to answering machine where I left a message, hope they get to me soon.
Could have RMA the unit to the retailer but like to find out what CooliT has to say.

About installation for owners of Antec P180W, since the case has 120mm exhaust fan the supplied adapter plate has to be used, the cooler has 90mm fan.
I had to cut and file some new holes on the P180 honeycomb grill in order to reach the holes on the adapter plate, easy mod since it's aluminum.

Here picture:


Freezone installed


Front view of the case I love:

So I have the CoolIT Freezone, and a E6700 OC'd to a 3.3, but my idle temps are around 36-40.

VCore is at 1.42V

I'm just seeing idle temps around 16-17C and wondered if I'm doing something wrong too?

Do those temps seem normal?
Do you not put the AS5 on the CPU and put it on the Freezone CPU block?
Do you not tighten all the thumbscrews done?

I put AS5 on my CPU and it was actually kinda tough balancing the CPU block on the CPU while trying to tighten the thumbscrews at the same time. Anyone else have this?
