CoolIT Eliminator Review

Installation

Installation of the Eliminator is pretty easy if you ask me. Just unscrew your old rear case fan, unclip your CPU cooler, and it's ready to go. After removing your stock cooler, you will need to clean off the leftover thermal paste before mounting the Eliminator block. I like to use rubbing alcohol as I always seem to have it around. A little bit on a rag will wipe the old paste right off and leave you ready to apply the new paste.



Now apply your preferred thermal paste. A good rule of thumb is that if you are using anything other than air cooling, you should switch from Arctic Silver 5 to Arctic Silver Céramique as your thermal paste, as it performs slightly better under colder conditions. Once you have cleaned off the old paste and applied the new paste, you can attach the Eliminator block to your CPU, plug in the power, and secure the unit where your old case fan was. The usual way of installing the CPU block entails removing the stock 939 retention bracket, and threading in a couple of standoffs. On my motherboard (DFI SLI-DR), the standoffs would not reach down to the threads, and I was forced to use an adapted retention module that i was using with my old cooler, which modifies the 939 to a Pentium 4 mounting scheme.



And before you know it, Bam! your new cooler is installed and ready to rock. Pretty simple if you ask me. This is a great achievement on Coolit's part as it makes this cooler really appeal to the novice.
