So how do we sum up the Domino A.L.C? Well over the last few pages we've seen that it's a well built unit that feels solid enough to last. The Domino is a good looking solution too, that might be down to the fact that once installed you can't see much more than the panel that houses the LCD display, but we can let that go. Installation couldn't be easier with a thorough instruction manual that would manage to guide my grandma through the fitting process.
The performance is a little here and there, depending on what your looking for in a cooler the Domino could be everything you need or a worst nightmare. The performance when the unit is running at it's highest setting is extremely impressive. The CPU tests yielded some good results, the highest temperature hitting 62°C which is more than acceptable.The simulated load results were even more promising with the Domino all out blitzing all other coolers tested here. The highest temp seen on the 200w test being still under 50°C! This is certainly impressive for an all in one cooler. The trade off for these nice temperatures however, is the fact that the Coolit is frankly far too loud at it's most powerful. This is a let-down, but then we have to sit back and look at the other two modes that the Domino comes pre-programed with. The mid setting was quite acceptable in the noise department, but the temperatures did suffer on the CPU tests. Most of the temperatures were quite reasonable, but again the hottest overclocked and loaded state approached 70°C, but managed to hold back from it by 2°C. The lowest setting however is, as you'd expect, the quietest. But the temperatures do suffer even more. The hottest test this time beating 70°C by 2°C which is a little toasty.
The Domino can be found over at various etailers for £75-80, for example Novatech have it for £77.04 at the time of writing, making it a tad on the expensive side as far as coolers go.
Overall I've been a lot more impressed with the Domino than I thought I would be going into this review. Most surprising was the simulated results, showing it's a very capable cooler. It's a tough call when it comes to recommending this over a lot of the high end air heat sinks however. It's a few more pennies, but it does offer a little more versatility via it's three performance levels.
