Let me start this off right... FIRST! This is an unboxing/install write up for the LEPA Exllusion 240 AIO cooler. It won't be as in depth as a review, but hopefully it'll be enough to sway you one way or the other if you're on the fence about this AIO, or if you're looking for a little AIO, maybe this will introduce you to another viable option. So, let's get to it. The Subject: The LEPA Exllusion 240 AIO cooler. What is it? It starts out as the standard AIO cooler with the pump/CPU block combo and a pretty standard 240mm radiator. Then it takes a left turn in a direction that puts it somewhere between the run of the mill AIO and a more robust AIO like EK's Predator. It hits this middle ground by adding reservoir space to the top of the block/pump combo and giving you access to it via a port on top of the block, allowing you to add/change coolant and even dye the coolant. It also uses barbed fittings for the connections between the pump and the reservoir, and I think this will allow you to change the tubing without having to get creative. I didn't test it so I'm 100% positive and you may have to hunt for correct size of tubing, but it certainly looks possible. A few things keep it just below what I think of as the top tier and those things are: the barbed fittings are built in-so while you can change the tube, you're stuck with the fittings, the aluminum radiator, and the mystery pump. I bring up the pump and radiator because I think a top tier AIO should have at least a little expandablility. With aluminum in the system and unknown pump specs, that expandability is try at your own risk. Specs: With 400 watts of cooling capacity and support for most recent Intel and AMD brackets, this AIO should fit just about any system if space allows. The only thing I can think it lacks support for is narrow 2011, and that's only for Asrock's mITX board as far as I know. What's in the box? A pair of LEPA 120mm fans with sleeved cables. Some handy, dandy connectors, including a 4 pin y splitter, a molex adapter and the most useful connector ever put in a box, a 24 pin with jumper and a 4 pin connector. The AIO and a nice size bottle of coolant. Probably enough for a complete drain and fill. And hardware. Included is a small tube of thermal paste with a spreader, screws, three bottles of dye(red, green, and blue) and a nozzle cap for use with the bottle of coolant. Next, lets get our hands dirty...

The Build/MOD begins: What do you mean I wasn't supposed to start the build??? I did a test layout and found a problem: Now this is debatable, to do apush pull set up 3 or 4 fans here's the problem, what do you think? Using a ECS Z77 Golden COSMOS II and Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme The only place to put a closed loop Extreme is upper inside case because the hoses will not reach the cpu from the bay underneath nor will the 240 radiator fit on the back and the top cover does not allow enough clearance for push pull like I want here. It wont fit above the frame and will only allow fans on top of the radiator due to memory clearence. I think I can solve this problem with this slim scythe SL12H fan, I'll update when I know. I was playing with a concept idea of the Screaming Eagle Shredding out of the front case behind the drop down slide panel. so when you slide it down the eagle and talons actually come out at you with a sound effect of a eagle scream with it. Well when I showed a few friends they joked: "does it come out every hour?" I never thought of that imagery and decided not to do this, so go ahead and laugh, it's on me and my ideas: Tear down: I Plan to enhance the WING Image of the doors so the vents need to be on the upper not lower half of the doors. I call this the LEETOOL, Lee Hancock inspired me to experiment with the doors and I had to create this to work the tabs in the doors. The hinges and latches do not line up if you switch doors so I swapped the door backing and IT WORKS!!! The vent section of the door backing will be cut out and swapped. The door with 4 vents will be cut to match the 8 vents and Lee Harrington has a door backing section with the 8 vents so I can match up the vent look. The mesh will be taken out and replaced with acrylic with stars cut out for vent holes, edge lit with golden LEDS for Gold Stars.. Depending on the looks after the vent cutting and experimenting I may or may not FLIP/SWAP/MOD the doors. Clean the case with 91% Isopropyl Alchohol I also ran the heat gun on high over the case and wipe down as I did to remove any other MFG. Oils and such 1st coating is a Adhesion promoter called BULLDOG. It's $$$ The Paint is Rust-Oleum Universal Rubbed Copper I call it Titanium Gold Flake This is my kind of Tree decorations, one friend called it my COSMOS MOBILE: 2 coats, 48hrs, wet sand 200 grit, another coat, 48 hrs, wet sand, thin spray coat, 6 hours and VALSPAR clear coat: SOB!!! DAG NABBIT!!!
