    For a liquid cooler, enthusiasts are not only looking for an easy and clean setup to efficiently calm the roaring CPU, more likely they also crave for the best low-maintenance solution. Thermaltake, being an industry leader in computer chassis, thermal solutions, and power supply units announces the newest upgrade and is thrilled to launch the new Thermaltake All-In-One Liquid Cooling System (LCS) Water3.0 series.

    The Water3.0 lineup features the Water 3.0 Extreme, Water 3.0 Pro and Water 3.0 Performer. The new Water 3.0 Series made setting up just as easy as it cools. It is time to upgrade the simplicity of liquid CPU cooling to enjoy better cooling performance and protect the investment in the CPU as well.

    Water 3.0 all-in-one LCS Series – Made for advanced performance
    The entire Water 3.0 series comes with a standard full copper base plate for better heat conductivity, a powerful pump within the waterblock for a rapid water circulation, dual 12cm high airflow fans for faster heat dissipation, and two low evaporation tubes effectively decrease the loss of coolant plus the high-tech sealed circulation system to prevent leaking issue. Yet, each model's radiator has been refined accordingly to manage different specification. Moreover, Water3.0 comes with a Windows based software to monitor and customize a wide range of parameters, including pump speed, coolant temperature and fan speed.

    Water 3.0 Extreme
    Extreme has a special designed 240mm large surface radiator and the support of two more 120mm fans for additional heat dissipation, targeting towards user who is always looking for the best with large chassis space.

    Water 3.0 Pro
    Pro has a standard radiator with double the thickness (49mm), aiming toward mainstream users who requires a superb performance, however does not have enough chassis space to install an Extreme.

    Water 3.0 Performer
    Performer has a standard size 120mm radiator, a perfect size to fit into various chassis, aiming toward first-timers who are new to LCS or who intimidated by the tradition custom LCS and wants an easier solution.

    Little late to the party, unless they offer the same thing but marginally cheaper than competitors.
    I want an AIO for my server, and that double thickness rad tempts me if its cheaper than the competition.

    Looks like Asetek is the OEM. 30 million editions of the same thing with different fans and different box.

    I've gone for the Antec 920 because of the longer tubes that i needed. The only advantage over competition and the reason why i bought their product. Other than that, exactly the same thing.

    So the only difference between these and the 2.0 models is some useless bloatware? Meh.

    On a general note, Tt's AIO packages are not bad at all. Tehy with 2 good fans, which could be a deal maker. I personally like them. I wish though, all AIO sell their units with no fans at all, so you could choose the one's you need/like/afford.

    I've used aftermarket high end Noiseblocker Multiframe fans for my cooler, so as far as i'm concerned, they can arrive with 2x poo's attached and it wouldn't change much...

    Hey guys,

    There are many feature enhancements on the Water3.0 units including:

    • A completely new Pump/Coldplate design
    • a new fluid internal routing path which makes more efficient usage of the full coldplate fin array
    • new designed fans for even better silent operation with very good airflow
    • performer is still one of the only units in its category offering push/pull fans

    :cool:

    EDIT: Also the 3.0 Extreme radiator was optimized for a thinner profile to allow even better compatibility with more chassis while making a sacrifice of little to no performance (Less than 1/2 Deg C) so dont worry these units perform very well, but i will not state exact temps as we will have units to reviewers soon and they can let you know how they perform
    brandonwh64, HammerON and sneekypeet say thanks.

    3.0 Extreme or H110i (if it ever launches) should fit great in one of my HAF X/S1150 builds... I guess...

    At this time isn't Cooler Master the only AiO unit that uses a copper radiator and a copper base? If that's the case the that seems like the no-brainer option to get.

    I do not think that the Tt radiator is copper or brass, believe its just aluminum like all other AIO (save Swiftech's H220). Where did you see the radiator was copper?

    so, improvements in the pump and coldplate and new pressure optimized fans are definitely plausible, such changes could easily sustain the reason to call it 3.0

    But if then you apply a thinner profile to its radiator, consumer-view you just made all the changes in vain. Cuz if even with all the other improvements it still being outperformed by its past gen (which is the 2.0) then i definitely don't think this product should be called 3.0

    Instead it should be called 2.0+, but even that would've been incorrect since it performs worse than the 2.0 there's no reason putting a plus on its name, so 2.0-(minus) should be the correct nomenclature

    I tell you what, good luck selling your new full of improvements series, im gonna go with the Swiftech H220.

    and im not even kidding :shadedshu

    Hi there,

    As I said things have all been changed with a reason n mind. and many chassis we found can have an issue with either heatsink or DIMM clearance with the upper edge which necessitated the change to a thinner profile optimized radiator... but the radiator was not simply thinned and then we moved on we ensured that performance and durability were excellent before giving it the go ahead to produce.

    Now as I said I will not spout off numbers, I will let the product speak for itself and as soon as reviewers have it in their hands you can see what their opinion is on it.

    Thanks for all of the feedback guys. :cool:


    EDIT: also the radiator material makes no difference for end users as we use the best material for heat removal and since the unit is sealed there is no need to worry about any sort of mixed metals as these units were designed to work together including additives to ensure there are not any issues.

    And since its not DIY parts where you can add or remove fluid there is no concern of the fluid being removed and replaced with a different fluid which could cause issues.
