After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
For instance given the "all-in-one" nature of this unit we found it cumbersome that the fan was not thermally controlled, granted there is a handy dial to control fan speed but it would have been nice to have the fan adjust as the water temperature changed.
Another concern we had with the system is two-fold.
- How do we tell if the system is indeed full? And..
- If after 2 years (or less in the event of a leak) how do you fill the system back up?
These aspects are not covered in the manual but I suspect the answer will eventually show up in the Coolermaster Forums sometime soon.
Multi processor installations
Virtually maintenance free
System not thermally responsive.
No provisions for monitoring (temperature, pump operations)
