Another suggestion for Koolance, more variety in coolant color options. Also if you can do anything about getting different color LEDs in the illuminated fans would be great. (I know that this is more for vanity, but if you are going to invest $800+ into liquid cooling, how about some room for Personalization, customization, and themes?)

Another suggestion, sell on Newegg.

We have a small computer shop and I sometimes take my Koolance rig to work and leave it a few days to show our customers what kind of performance machines we can make. The other day a guy came in that was interested in water cooling so I showed him my rig. He said he didn't want any cheap stuff like that. I was like WTF? :o :oops: (surprisingly, he is still alive - LOL). He said anything worthwhile was sold on Newegg. We use the 'egg a lot, it is often cheaper than our wholesaler. Anyway, I was shocked that Koolance's great products weren't on there. None...

even with the reviews of the WC systems on Newegg? that is a laugh Bambihunter, if the guy thought that everything that newegg sells is so wonderful. I read the newegg reviews for the Thermaltake and danger den kits. everybody complained about leaks and fitting failures right off. That is how I ended up wanting Koolance.

but koolance did at one point have their PS3 cooling kit on Newegg....

Anybody who looks at that rig with anything less than awe and respect doesn't have an opinion worth hearing :ugeek: . I have to give Newegg a vote, I have a friend of mine in the US source most of my hardware from them and I've never had a problem. The rating system is very helpful when comparing components

I agree that Newegg is a great website, but the people who review a product before even recieving it bug the crap out of me. how can you give a product review when you don't even have the part, or have only had it a few days?

As a Canadian it is cheaper for me to purchase parts at local stores than it is from Newegg. I have yet to order a single part from them.

Another idea (which isn't my own) is to put screw guards on the radiators. What I mean is to put a small flat piece of metal to keep the screws from going in too far and contacting the core. One of the other companies, just soldiers it right on top of the core. That method isn't real strong, but stronger than the soft copper.

Another idea:

Threaded right-angle quick disconnects. This would be perfect for coming out of video cards, you could have a threaded QDC right there. That would allow you to disconnect it with just one hand since the other end would be solidly mounted.


My personal favorite idea I've had:

Make a flip-out port, extended/staggerd front or something that would allow you to fill the RP-xxxx without having to move them. It is a real hassle to have to leave enough slack in your loop to allow you to pull the RP forward enough to get to the fill port. I think it would even would be sufficient to have a G 1/4 fitting on the face of the unit. Then, you could just lean the computer back to fill it. Or, if nothing else seems feasible, just move the port right next to the face plate so at the very least have to only move it out 3/4" to fill it.
I will try to draw some pics to illustrate this better. The RP-1000's are nice pieces. My only complaints with them are they are a little noisier than I wish, and the filling ritual.


Another minor one:
Mouse pads. I would love to have a few with the Koolance logo in different colors.
