CoolIT Freezone Elite CPU Cooler

Coolit Freezone EliteThe cooling systems employed by enthusiasts today are constantly increasing in complexity and expense, in a bid to increase efficiency, reduce noise and provide a means for increased overclocks. Todays review item is a product which, through use of a lesser known cooling solution, aims to hit these goals on the head and provide users with the best performance available without the need to insulate and risk hardware failure.
The Freezone Elite is a CPU cooling system fairly unique in its design. Essentially it is a compact liquid cooler with your typical waterblock and pump, however, in addition to the norm, the Freezone Elite uses two banks of 3 TEC blocks in place of a radiator to cool the coolant. Designed to fit neatly into the inside of most regular chassis with minimal work and maintenance.
CoolIT are not a particularly widely known company, mostly because of the specific and unique nature of their products. The fact that the company is not the biggest could well work in the favor of the CoolIT Elite, allowing far higher attention to detail and care in the units construction.

Nothing that out of the ordinary to be learned from the specifications, but two things I will draw attention to are the CFM / dBA of the fan (which I expect will be running on a variable voltage) and the low noise output of the pump.
