ERM-3K3UC (copper core radiator) is designed for industrial cooling and other special thermal applications. With a 24V PMP-450S pump and 9 x 120mm high-flow fans totaling 968CFM, it's the most powerful system available from Koolance. ERM-3K3U provides greater thermal performance at 20% fan speed than previous ERM-2K3U models at 100%. RoHS compliant versions of ERM-3K3U are available.
-This unit incorporates all-new Koolance electronics, with a 2-line VFD dot matrix display for deeper user control and feedback:
A prominent white LED-lit reservoir displays the coolant level, combining a waterfall effect when placed upright. The cooling system can be positioned in multiple ways. Feet are included for vertical tower or horizontal orientations, with fans facing up or down. The unit also fits within a 3U profile and includes rack mountable ears. The front display can be rotated for these positions by hand. ERM-3K3U has G 1/4 BSP rear nozzle threads. NOTE: 3 x 700mL bottles of coolant is recommended for this system.

Koolance''s best effort so far (but you can do better)07-29-2011
Reviewer: MasonStorm (4)
At this point, I''ve owned an Exos-2, an ERM-3K4U5, a handful of self-built systems (you can select your own pump, rad, reservoir & fans), and now this. (As probably everyone knows) the best possible systems are self-built; I have a Magicool Nova 1080 radiator with an MCP-655 pump in my main rig, and once the air is bled from that system, it''s completely silent from two feet away (and my favorite build so far). In terms of these plug-''n-play, drop-''em-in, off-the-shelf, all-in-one systems, this one is the best I''ve seen. The Exos was simply too underpowered to cool anything more than 1-2 components. And the ERM-3K4U5 was APPALLINGLY loud, fit only for an industrial application (or some giant company''s IT room). But this ERM-3K3UC not only looks good, comes in a more svelte form factor, and has the full 1080 rad ----- but it''s fairly quiet, too! It''s still much louder than my self-built system, entirely because Koolance continues to choose pumps which are too loud. You can silence the fans, but even at its lowest setting, the pump in this thing is the loudest item in my room. (Come on Koolance, how hard would it be to contract with the makers of better pumps, such as the MCP-655?) And until you''ve completely bled the air from this thing, it too is RIDONculously loud - the air bubble sounds seeming to ECHO inside this thing''s case. BUT in terms of a quick-to-use, suitable testing-outside-of-my-case device, this fits the bill. You won''t want its noise in your HTPC system, and not in any long-term use (if you''re a silence aficionado like me). But other than that, it''s a good step in the right direction from Koolance, and I hope they continue their march toward truly top-quality, versatile, SILENT liquid cooling systems.
