    To fulfill the need of entry level out of the box water cooling solutions, Thermaltake is launching a brand new series of liquid cooling kit - ProWater series. The first model to be introduced is the “PW850i”. What's included in the PW850i is a DC 12V P500 liquid pump that pumps 500l/h, a 350 c.c. transparent reservoir, Flow TX flow meter, single 120mm radiator with 120x120x25mm blue LED fan (1300~2400RPM), and pure copper waterblock compatible with all AMD AM2/K8 and Intel LGA775/P4 motherboards. The system aslo uses transparent UV 3/8-inch tubes with iStripe to eliminate deformation of the tubes. Check out this url for more information.

    Where they will make money is if they make a cheap but good quality low cost W/c system. I have a thermaltake silent water and I love it for an all in one system. I have been running my x2 3800 at 2.8 ghz for almost a year now.

    Thermaltakes Water coolers arent bad, it just they target a segment of the market that has way more advanced water cooling users. This doesnt look bad but I wish the hoses were bigger.

    Thermaltake water cooling is bad. Most of their systems are matched or outdone by top of the line air. And the air is cheaper to boot.

    I had my share of bad luck with Tt water cooling setups... 1 burnt pump :mad: for no apparent reason (2 months old) and one leak :banghead: on a Big water...

    we have to admit is the easy solution for anyone who wants to find out what watercooling is about..... however as you say their systems are matched or outdone by top of the line air. I get better results with a :rockout:Zalman 9700 and a :rockout:Thermalright 120...

    I ran two BWs on my systems for a few weeks as an experiment against a maxorb & a tr 120. The results were ridiculous. After 16 days, one of the pumps started to make a crackling noise then died. The other setup's radiator developed a leak after 2 weeks & crapped out fluid all over one of my harddrives. The harddrive survived but I wouldn't even recommend TT's junk to my old pal that nearly burned my qx9650.
