the noctua rocks, i own a coolit domino alc and yes it really sucks even with 2 fans. I even had to mod my 25cm sidepanel fan to fit in the case again. I wonder how good the coolit vantage is gonna perform.

Good Review although a bit short. Years ago, i had the "CoolRiver Deluxe Watercooling Kit" - it was fantastic for about 80 Bucks. Absolutely Silent (600 rpm Cooler, the aquapump wasn't hearable to me) and there were 3 heatsinks included: for the grafics card, northbridge (the good old, but hot Nforce 2 SLI on my A8N-SLI Deluxe which had an extremely loud fan) and of course the CPU. And all of it combined never heated up to more than 45 degrees. I was amazed.
Maybe next time you can include some other cheap Watercooling solutions, just 4 better comparison. I would send over my good old "CoolRiver Deluxe Watercooling Kit", if i didn't break it accidentially... (here is a review btw: )
Nowadays I go with efficient aircooling again:
I recently bought the "Scythe Mugen Rev. B PCGH Edition" and want to know how it would behave against this solution, but of course you cannot take every cooling solution out there for comparison. So I ask the users if anyone has an Idea or experience in that point.

I think your cooler is the same as Mugen 2 (safe for 1156 retention kit) that was tested on this site maybe a little over a year ago. You can check that review and compare the numbers. Also there was round up with several (a lot of) air cooler in which the Mugen 2 was tested again.
I have already asked the editors to include some sort of selectable way to compare coolers. xbitlabs does a lot and really good cooler reviews and it is a shame you can not compare any two (or even more) coolers at a glance. Please fellows!

Thx, you're right.I found 2 reviews where the Mugen 2 was in it ( and ) I was a bit stupid to buy the Mugen 2 PCGH instead of the Megahalem but now I cannot correct that anymore.
What did you mean with the retention kit?

Yeah I am also looking forward for the bigger table for comparison :-)
Keep up the good work!

As always: sorry for my bad English^^.

What did you mean with the retention kit?

Yours is compatible with socket 1156. I have the original Mugen 2 (the one that xbitlabs tested) that did not have retention mechanism for that socket. BTW the kit is available for sell for like 5 bucks.
I was a bit stupid to buy the Mugen 2 PCGH instead of the Megahalem but now I cannot correct that anymore.

I disagree. Megahalem is 50% more expensive and you get very little improvement - maybe couple degrees. However, due to the design of M2 u can get 99% of its potential with low airflow. You can get the most out of it with two fans @ 1000rpm, which would be near silent.

I would liked to have seen this compared against similar devices like the Corsair H50. Being a consumer who has never installed a water cooling solution before, the device appeals to me since it helps me to avoid the complicated process of installing a full blown water cooling system.

After a (near) disastrous leak with CoolIt's Domino A.L.C. (the manufacturer cleaned both my motherboard and videocard to near new condition), I was offered the CoolIt ECO...let's just say; that an older Thermalright 120 keeps my PC cooler (33C vs. 39C @ idle) than the ECO ever could.

Sorry folk's; but if you want to get your feet wet (figuratively speaking), then you're better off with real water cooling. for example, the XSPC RASA 750-RS240
