    Cooler Express 2010/2011 CE-48-S-1C Review

    I just had a chance to run a Cooler Express 2010/2011 CE-48-S-1C Single Stage Phase cooing unit through it's paces and here is a little review on this unit.

    I am a Phase Cooling nut case, I love these things and this unit surpassed my expectations.

    Thanks to sdumper for all his help with this !

    This is a new unit from Cooler Express and it has a much better load handling capability than earlier units. I am told it's new watt load rating is 280watts which is actually pretty close to my custom made Jinu unit so I had an idea on what to expect from the Cooler Express unit.

    The unit was ordered and came right from Taipei Taiwan. Shipping was handled very well and it actually only took 2 days to get to my place in California. This is about as fast as Newegg products get to me so I was very pleased with that

    Here is a picture of how the unit looks when I received it.
    It's a very strong box with strapping for added reinforcement.
    No damage what so ever on the box and it looked is very good shape.



    Lets open up the box and see how it's packed inside.
    Everything is neat, in order and packaged well.



    Taking the unit out of the box and setting in the table you see it's shrink wrapped well.



    Here it is after taking off all the wrapping. This unit looks very, very good



    Power switch and temp display on the front.



    And the Evap



    And the back of the unit.



    I took off the side panel to show the insides, everyone what's to see what powers this unit I bet
    The inside is spotless and very, very clean



    A nice size condenser is installed.



    And of course the compressors which is a good unit I believe.



    The accessory package is well supplied with everything you need. The instruction manual is very well done also.



    The included evap clam shell is also a clear type which was a nice surprise. It looks very good.



    The length of the suction line I though was going to be a issue, this unit is made for shorter ATX cases, but it fit perfectly with a little slack to spare in my build. I am told that if a longer suction line is needed this can be done.

    Just a quick picture of what it looks like all mounted up to a CPU. Lots of wire clean up to do here still but this was for running tests.



    For testing I had the unit mounted to a 980x @ 5.27ghz with 1.6vcore with HT on. It could handle everything I threw at it just fine with out a problem what so ever. wPrime long dropped temps down to -25c which was no problem, it also recovered very fast from that run and others. With this CPU overclock temps on the desktop was sitting at -39c.

    Here is a short youtube of the unit showing pull down speed and operation.

    The only thing that I could say about this unit is the condenser fan makes to much noise, but other than that the unit is extremely well done and powerful.

    Cost of this unit is a little higher than custom built units, but what you get is well worth the investment imo.

    Now a lot of units these days are built as benching unit which are much bigger, this unit is really built for 24/7 use but it can fill both roles very easily.

    I give the Cooler Express 2010/2011 CE-48-S-1C a 9/10 rating
    A quieter condenser fan would give it a 10/10

    Thanks and I hope you enjoyed reading this !

    Really nice looking cooler Bill.

    Any chance to slap it on Sandy Bridge yet? Curious to know how a strong single-stage performs on it.

    I doubt a SB is going to budge it at all. Probably just sit at -39C the whole time LOL

    Nice first look Bill. I would love to get a me a SS. I just cant abide noise though lol.

    I did put my Jinu SS Phase on the 2500K I have here at home and it was no help at all, in fact I think it made overclocking it worse saddly

    haha, that is awful news

    I was just curious ... is there an idle to these machines or are they always at the 280w load?

    They are pretty much on full all the time.

    That does not sound super good; but to be honest If I ever buy a phase kit I won't care about power draw at all.

    well right now my sig rig pulls 220ish watts on idle ... so another steady 280w is just like having another computer ..

    280W refers to teh heat displacement at the head, not the power load of the unit.

    Tbh 280W power draw from the wall shouldn't be too far off. IIRC my old Vapochill pulled 220'ish, and this one seem to use a much larger compressor (which I assume draws more power).

    -25 under load on a 980x is pretty impressive..
