This block measures 213x95x495mm at 4.1 kilos of weight. The housing is made from aluminum. Here is a photo of the top panel of the block:

You can see two wire grids of 120mm fans and the fans themselves underneath. To the right is an expansion tank with a translucent cover and a plug.

There is nothing exceptional on the bottom panel:

The large slits in the bottom of the block provide some fresh air for the radiator but the manufacturer says most of the air comes in through the side grids of the case. There are four feet on the bottom – you should glue the included rubber pads to them to make the block stand steady. I want to note that the feet with the pads are less than 8mm high – you’ll see shortly why I mention this fact.

There is a small digital indicator of the fan speed level (10 levels) and of the temperature as reported by one of the three sensors, and four small control buttons.

Below them is an acrylic panel with the cooler’s name and two chrome brackets that serve an aesthetic rather than functional purpose.

At the rear panel there are the input and output fittings, a connector for the interface cable (which does double duty as a power cable), and a small regulator of the pump performance:

The latter can even turn the pump off as the warning label informs you.

The two fans at the top of the housing are installed upside down for exhaust:

According to the labels, these fans run on ball bearings and have a peak consumption of about 3W. The fan speed can be regulated either automatically (depending on the temperature) or manually according to the 10-level scale:

Removing the bottom panel of the Koolance Exos-2 LX, I could take a look at its internal design:
