During CES 2009 we could take a look at CoolIT Domino ALC (Advanced Liquid Cooling), an “all-in-one” water cooling system for CPUs that is coming with an impressive low price (USD 79) and, at the same time, featuring a digital controller with an LCD display. Let’s check it out.

Being a self-contained system means that this cooler comes pre-assembled and ready for use, and it includes a CPU block, hoses, radiator, fan, water pump, reservoir and coolant. It also includes a digital controller. According to CoolIT this system can run up to 50,000 hours without maintenance. This equals to 6,250 days (i.e., 208 months or 17 years) working 8 hours a day or to 2,083 days (i.e., 69 months or 5 years and 9 months) working 24/7.
