Thermaltake Unveils ProWater PW880i Water Cooling System

Thermaltake, leading provider of computer cooling solutions, is introducing their latest addition in their wide range of liquid cooling products, the PW880i gets your PC in gear for the coming summer heat. In addition to this big size water cooling system, Thermaltake also offers water cooling solutions for VGA cards (WB400) and for the motherboard North Bridge (WB200), tailored for your individual cooling needs.

The PW880i is a powerful liquid cooling solution for the core of your PC the CPU. With a 24cm radiator equipped with two 14cm fans this is the ideal device for efficient heat dissipation. The solid CPU water block is made of pure copper with delicate brazing technology. Supporting most mainstream CPU sockets such as Intel LGA1366 and AMD AM3, the PW880i sports excellent cooling performance for demanding users and overclockers alike. As the tank and pump can be placed outside the chassis it offers two practical advantages: you gain more space within the case itself and maintenance is made easier and more convenient.

If you are looking for more specialized water cooling, Thermaltake is also offering interesting solutions. The WB400 VGA water block is equipped with an LED fan and supports mainstream high-end VGA cards, such as the nVIDIA GTX 285 or the ATi HD 4890. With the WB200 Northbridge water block you have a pure copper base with ideal thermal characteristics. The M-connector is a one-to-three connector. Its rotational hose connector provides users more flexibility to arrange their liquid cooling system. With parallel connection, the water blocks can be well-arranged and receives cool coolant from the radiator.

Hey, they know they suck. Maybe they're trying to live up to something finally.

If it would at least look halfway decent. I mean it looks like its been randomly stacked together, and does not appear to be solid at all.

Rather odd looking. Almost fragile looking construction.

For all that are confused about the fans - you can but Thermlatake fans that are 14cm but have 12cm mounting systems.

Either way this thing look awful.

Actually the PW880i was announced a year ago almost, its just that now TT has released a few extra gadgets for it.
As for performance its not great but its very nice, i have been testing it for over a month and it performs on par with the V10 by Cooler Master.

Which is disappointing for a water kit, imo.

Very. My water setup cools far better than a V10... by more than 10C under load.

Depends, it does perform slightly better and it is A LOT more silent and to me that matters a lot.

This discussion is rather entertaining :laugh:

I've said it before, Tt seems to have great ideas at first glance, but just fail to execute. There seems to be one or more fatal design flaw in most of thier products that renders the whole thing useless. Or in theis case, something that looks like a POS from the get-go.

wait did i miss the memo who put noisy fans on the V10?

and everyone read closely as Tt uses a copper block with a aluminum rad woot!

So you payed 130$ for a Cooler and swapped 2x120mm fans for another lets say 30-40$ and now you own a 160-180$ Air CPU Cooler.....
In that case it may not be as loud but still it is Huge...And you cant place high memory modules....Still i prefer Water Cooling.

it fits DHX modules no idea whats taller than those.


and i paid $75 for a cooler and i bought the fans 6 months ago here for $4 a fan. i only have one big fan on it the other is the one that came with my xiggy. so i have an $80 air cooler.

I am talking about NEW prices, not used....Last time i checked this costs around 120-130$.

And no you cant fit memories beneath it. I couldnt fit the OCZ Blade, the Patriot Viper, CSX Diablo, Chaintech Apogee GT, Kingston T-Series. I mean they would fit but they heatsink would press on them and i dont consider that as a good thing.
