PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
CoolIT has done all the tedious work for you. The Radiator Module, which actually contains the pump, fan and LCD screen as well as the radiator, is plumbed to the Fluid Heat Exchanger (waterblock) and filled with coolant. No messy filling and bleeding operations are necessary. CoolIT also provides a pair of spare fan mounts and all the hardware needed for getting the FHE on the supported motherboard of your choice.
From the backside of the radiator module we can see the proprietary pump, radiator and fan with rubber mounting. The 3-pin connector provides power for all functions and allows the unit to power on and off with the computer. Fan/cooling settings are illustrated on the sticker just above the pump.
Unfortunately, one of the rubber fan mounts is MIA and I'll have to use one of the spares thoughtfully provided by CoolIT. As we'll see later, the whole radiator module mounts to the fan placement in a computer using these rubber mounts.
