Thermaltake Introduces ProWater880i - Maximized Power Liquid Cooling

Although liquid Cooling has excellent cooling performance, gamers still worry about it will take too much space in the chassis. Now, this problem can be solved by Thermaltake new liquid cooling system, ProWater880i.

ProWater880i is developed to solve the dilemma of good performance and space saving. With the special designed mounting kit, gamer can easily install ProWater880i in the back of the chassis. It brings two benefits. One is that the radiator can be cooled by the cold air outside and generate better cooling performance. The other benefit is the space allocation within the chassis can be optimized.

To achieve maximized performance, ProWater880i comes with many exciting features. First, it can support the latest and fastest Intel Core i7 processor with the included clip. The 24cm Motorsport Radiator can speed up the heat dissipation. Meanwhile, the two efficient 12cm fans generate maximum air flow. P500 pump and big capacity tank create perfect coolant circulation and cool down all the major components. The all-copper waterblock has been through industrial-grade sealed. Leakage problem won’t happen to PW880i and users can just enjoy the high cooling performance brought by it.

With all these features, ProWater880 definitely is a state-of-the-art liquid cooling product. By owning ProWater880i, users can be brought a new whole generation. For more information, visit this page.Source: Thermaltake

Probably seems decent, until you start using it.

Looks like a strap-on :wtf:

yeah, Thermaltake's water cooling track record is not great to say the least. But still i'd like to give em a chance and wait for both user and pro reviews before passing judgment on this 880i. I do like the arrangement of the water-cooling setup though, looks like they took the Swiftech radbox approach and built on that.

Probably still using 1/4" tubes, and look how thin that rad is, I think it might be the thinnest rad I've ever seen compared to the fans.

actually its 3/8" tubing, which is good but not as good as 1/2"

They probably say space-saving because it's mounted externally, so you save interior space.

Another shit-tastic product with an Engrish filled press release, brought to you by Thermaltake, makers of rubbish water cooling since 2002.

That was their old pump, this one isn't actually that bad, it isn't that great either though.

Looks better than the current offerings, but that radiator looks about as thick as a dime...

my friend gave me his Tt pump...the only time you'd catch me using it was if you could get that guy from ages back on XS who made a custom top for it..
then maybe I'd use it.

Thermaltake ProWater 850i and Thermaltake BigWater 760i were pretty disappointing. Both can be beaten by high end air based solutions. I hope ProWater 880i can do better than that.

Thermaltake used to be pretty big few years ago. Not the greatest quality products, but decent products that were always affordable and innovative.

Personally, I think high-end air coolers have gotten to the point where low-end or even mid-range liquid cooling solutions are pointless. Few years ago low to mid range liquid cooling kits made sense, but that was before HDT designs and before massive towering heatsinks with several industrial strength high-CFM fans become the standard. If somebody is itching to ditch air cooling then phase-change would be my recommendation for day-to-day operation or liquid nitrogen for those extreme benching sessions. Plain liquid cooling is on it's way out except for the top of the line high-end setups. And even those are making less sense every day since more "extreme" cooling solutions are getting cheaper and easier to handle.

One is that the radiator can be cooled by the cold air outside and generate better cooling performance.
Indeed.. cool air from the PSU and Videocard(s)' exhaust -_-
