CoolIT has been around for a while now, offering a wide range of OEM and retail coolers for processors and graphic cards. A while ago CoolIT sent me the Vantage A.L.C. (Advanced Liquid Cooling) for CPU’s. This nifty all-in-one watercooler with LCD-screen is positioned in the high-end cooling market with a price tag of $100. Let’s find out if CoolIT has made a product that can hold its own for this price.
