The Main Components
A number of special features in the Koolance system become apparent immediately - Koolance does away with both a power supply fan and a case ventilator. Instead, the power supply unit is cooled with water. A further highlight is an additional cooling element, which is designed to cool the graphics chip. This feature sets Koolance apart from the competition, which employ a conventional water cooler and usually only equip the processor with a cooling element.
To examine the system in detail, we completely stripped it down. The illustration above shows the basic configuration of the Koolance system and how it works. A heat exchanger integrated into the foot of the case contains the water that is circulated using a pump.
