Conclusion

Now you have seen the cooler in action. And this is where I whine and congratulate.

I have had previous experience with other water cooling kits, some good, some absolute rubbish. But the Nautilus makes a mockery of them. With detachable fitting and valves, small external unit (the correct size to sit on top of a case), 20 minute installation and thatís not it thereís much more, that you will only get when you actually buy this cooler. If you are in the need for a water cooler and just cant choose one you like. The Nautilus 500 is the one to pick and in some cases the only one to pick.

Some Water cooling kits are quite simple and are ok at cooling. But when you compare this to them it makes them look like dust in a desert and make the Nautilus the Rain! If you can get your hands on one of these units do so, its one of the best water cooler around in my opnion.

This bueaty sells for $154 USD on newegg. When considering that price to other Coolers of the same standard, your looking a $50 USD difference, thats right, this cooler is 50 bucks cheaper then one of its rivals. Not to mention $50 Bucks could mean the difference between 512mb or 1gb, and that means performance.

I have heard from Corsair Myself, that they have already released North Bridge(Not 100% sure about NF4 Chipsets) and VGA Water Blocks, with SLi/Crossfire Water Blocks coming out very very soon.


Pros (+):
  • Copper Water Block
  • 3/8" Tubing
  • Sensors for both Pump and Fan
  • Corsair Cool Water Additive
  • Mounts for most common CPU's
  • Quick Release Valves and Connectors
  • Back Plate with Connectors
  • 120mm Fan
  • External Unit
  • More then Just a CPU Cooler, You can get water blocks for VGA/Chipset
  • 500 Watt Dissipation fo Heat
  • Installion that doesn't require the removal of the Motherboard for installion
  • Cheaper then the competition by $50 US
Cons (-):
  • You have to feed the tubing through the back plate, no connectors.
  • Attaching the Water Block requires strength and alot of pressure, so much it feels like you are breaking the CPU.
