The Domino was awarded the “Design & Engineering Showcase Honors” award of International CES of 2009, so with this award embossed on the box, you have the confidence great product is inside and what we have experienced is nothing less than a perfect product.

Packaged very well to prevent damage to the tubing and the rest. The Domino may look a little intimidating at the moment, but it is very simple to install.

Close up of the Domino by itself is slightly bigger than a 120mm fan in height. Take this into consideration when your scoping out what computer case your planning on install the Domino into. Back of the Domino showing how compact the package is, allowing for the as much as possible air flow through the radiator.

Installation of the CoolIT Domino was pretty easy and I would rate it at about a 6 on a scale of 1 to 10. The Domino Radiator Module is a little bigger than the 120mm fan, so case size will need to be taken into consideration. We installed our Domino in theCoolerMaster HAF 932 case with one minor modification (the removal of the side panel 230x30mm fan. We did try and was kind of successful at keeping the side panel fan, but this put too much stress on the vibration dampening rubber fan mounts which hold the radiator module to the case.  The Domino from the factory comes with the LGA 1366 based bracket installed, since are going to be installing the Domino on our AMD Phenom II AM3 x4 810 setup, we had to change out the bracket.

Pulling the mounting screws off the CPU bracket was pretty easy, though we did end up shooting one C clips across the room. Luckily there are spares. The install of the cooler on the processor was a little tricky as the motherboard didn’t line up with the access hole on the Cooler Master HAF 932 case.

This change over was once again pretty simple with a simple one plastic screw. The challenge with the changeover was with the C clips which hold the mount screws to the retention bracket. During the removal of one C clip, we ended up shooting it across the room. Luckily, the Domino is shipped with a few spares. Installation of the Domino after this wasn’t too bad with the Cooler Master HAF 932 case with access port near the processor. The rest of the install included removing the side panel fan and securing the rubber vibration dampening plugs to the back of the case.

  1. I just filed a customer complaint. I came home to find my home server shut down due to CPU overtemp. I run SETI in the background so this keeps my dual core system working when the server is not busy and I have seen CPU temps of 115 to 120 with a traditional heatsink/fan. . The pump speed indicates ‘—–‘ and switching back and forth from quiet to performance mode was no help. The Domino ALC unit is less than 60 days old. I will relay here the results of the customer service experience.

  2. Question for anyone who has used this ALC….
    I have a Coolmaster Centurion 5 case with 120mm Fan on the back so I’m fairly confident this will fit and mount in my case. But by mounting it I am wondering if I need to install another exhaust fan since I will be replacing the only exhaust fan that exists in the case?
    Or does this unit pull enough air out of the chassis to give me proper air flow?

  3. Do not buy this, it supposedly is sealed forever…. well the mount to one of the tubes cracked (the lower tube where it connects to the radiator) and sprayed (apparently water based) conductive coolant into my 350$ graphics card and corroded it. I opened the thing and its all corroded and green. Totally destroyed. It’s like they just used plain antifreeze, smells like water and green toxic glycol.
    Don’t buy this, its a piece of crap that ended up costing me more money than I thought i was saving getting an all in one unit.
    Supposed to work maintenance free for thousands of hours or whatever, I just build my computer band new, it had been on for probably less than 30 hrs total before this happened. DO NOT BUY

    • I would like to see a picture of your setup and how you had the coolant lines run. My experience with CoolIT products has been without issue and I have never had any of their stuff break or leak on me. That being said no product is without the occasional problem or breaking. Have you at least contacted CoolIT to see if they will replace and or fix your system and their product? Give them a chance and I think they will please you.
