    SilverStone gave its Tundra line of liquid-cooling products a new lease of life with two new closed-loop CPU coolers, the TD02 and TD03 (pictured in that order). The two feature design and fans by SilverStone. The TD02 features a radiator assembly that measures 278 x 124 x 33.5 mm (LxWxH, excluding fans), and can latch on to four 120 mm fans. The TD03, on the other hand, uses a radiator assembly close to half the size of its sibling, measuring 124 x 159 x 45 mm. The base+pump assembly is the same for both, measuring 55 x 60 x 33.5 mm, which features a polished copper base. The two will reach stores later this week.

    Please pull up pictures of both and tell me where the design is even remotely similar.
    they are not copying corsair, they are manufactured by asetek, who manufactures almost ALL AIO units
    Sure, they probably both use the same pump and innerds as the asetek aio's, but they're all made in the same factory anyway.

    1) These are made by Asetek, the Corsair H80/H100 are both made by CoolIT. Significant difference there in the internals and the overall design mechanics.

    2) They look absolutely NOTHING like the H80/H100, the entire colour scheme is different, the entire pump unit is different and so on. These Tundra AIOs have aluminium on the pump, the H80/H100 are entirely plastic.

    3) The radiator thicknesses are totally different 33.5mm on the TD02 compared to 27mm on the H100, 45mm on the TD03 compared to 37mm on the H80.

    Just because someone makes an AIO with the same radiator size and same number of fans, it does not make it a copy. let me guess the Swiftech H220 is also a copy of the H100? Corsair did not invent the 240mm or 120mm AIO.

    How could they use the same pump if the H80 and H100 were manifactured by CoolIt and not Asetek?

    yeah 10 seconds late

    That's what i meant: same looking pump, same looking pipes. Even rad looks very similar, just painted in white. And there's no need to post H80 pics, i have one in my rig.

    Yes and all tablets are rectangular and have rounded edges, so they all must have copied apple blatantly.
    Made entirely differently, measurements and all.

    Everyone else should note i said asetek make almost all aio units.

    Not be a smartass, but weren't the 'normal' H80/H100 made by Asetek and the H80i/H100i made by CoolIt?
    I do like these units, they're quite refreshing when it comes to aesthetics.
    They're definitely not plain H80/H100 copies FYFI13, that is like saying Corsair invented the whole AIO liquid cooling productlines to begin with, which is definitely not the case...
    CoolIt actually had various units in the retail market before the deal between Asetek and Corsair.

    Nope. H60/H60rev2/H80/H80i/H100/H100i are all made by CoolIT.

    H40/H50/H55/H70/H90/H110 are all made by Asetek.

    to be honest i don't care who made or copied from...

    just how much more cooling power do these have compared to tower style air cooler?

    Do i hear the pump if i have an ssd and passive gpu, does it feature 4pin PWM for the Pump?

    If i bought a normal water cooling "kit", does it kill/annihilate these completely?

    The socket is made of "copper" or not?

    How much?

    Honestly it's just more choice in the growing world of self-contained water loop coolers. Which isn't a bad thing, everyone of them have something appealing to the end-user, more choice more win :rockout:

    Love the fans, they remind me of the ones Arctic Cooling uses... And I still don't know who their OEM is. Wonder if the slightly thicker radiators will make a tangible difference... They sure will be harder to fit into a case.

    Hey Guys,

    I just want to clarify that this unit is not designed and manufactured by Asetek.

    I should note that we have over 1.4 million liquid cooling units in the field so when you buy an Asetek designed product you are getting peace of mind along with performance. :rockout:

    Take care,

    -Zack (Asetek)

    Rule of thumb: square block = CoolIT, round block = Asetek.

    If it performs identically or better than my H100, I'm going to buy one in a flash, purely to match my white/silver case theme colours. Then i just need to find a non-retarded mobo colour to go with...

    It's not a CoolIT design either.

    and performance...

    i am not going thought all the fiting trouble if it won't kick my scythe mugen in its butt seriously with noise and temperature.


    Hey guys there from "zack.asetek" and "Corsair George" as many cases feature these holes for watercooling on the back, why not make a AIO with couplings to open and refill or move the radiator outside the case?

    i would be happy to put a 240 radiator "standing" on little feets outside and two couplings outside my case while inside is just a Block&Pump combo with completely sealed tubes!

    i am not go and buy a sealed aio just to cut it up and loose my warranty :D

    That's what the Swiftech H220 (or a custom loop) is for.

    if anyone is interested to know... this is not a typical radiator design...

    its more like the ones designed by Aquacomputer...

    Evaporation is a major problem. With an all-in-one unit you're using a very small amount of fluid and every single part of the system is carefully designed for ultra-low evaporation. The tubing, the connectors, the barbs, the pump top itself, etc.

    By making the tubing with quick connectors, you're introducing a point of potential loss of fluid. Even a small percentage of fluid loss can significantly affect performance and lifespan, which is why the units are sealed.
