There is a small sticker right next to the pump on a plastic cover shielding the back of the monitoring LCD and the control panel PCB:

The sticker lists operational modes for CoolIT Domino A.L.C. liquid-cooling system and briefly describes the control and monitoring procedures:

As I have already said, the cover hides a small monitoring LCD-screen and the control and monitoring panel:


This is the front view of the system:

And the last component of CoolIT Domino A.L.C. is the water block. The hoses that connect it to the pump and the radiator are very firmly braided, which may make it difficult to install the system into the computer case and to mount the water block on the mainboard.

There is even less info available about this water block than we found about the pump. It measures 50 x 50 mm and weighs 122g. It is made of nickel-plated solid copper and features micro-channel internal structure. The base is covered with a layer of thick gray thermal interface:


This thermal interface proved just as efficient as Arctic Silver 5 (without 72 hours of run-in time). That is why we can regard it as pretty efficient. The base is very even, which you can clearly see from the thermal compound imprint on the processor heat-spreader. The base is even polished off quite well:

There is also not much info available about the coolant inside the CoolIT Domino A.L.C. system. All we know is that it is non-toxic and contains anti-corrosion additives. That’s about it.
