OOUGHHH The memories. I had the BigWater 745 (i think its 745) back in the days, overclocking my Q6700 like a baws!
Ok, lets get the Bigwater facts out of the way. The unit is for the novice or for those looking not to take a lot of space. It really doesn't do a bad job believe it or not...... but there are better options out there. The thing that craps out the Bigwater is they use an aluminum radiator with mixed metals in the setup and mixing metals is a nono with watercooling. Mixing metals leads to corrosion and the unit IMO is crap and should be avoided like the plague. Also, the Thermaltake pumps have a huge reputation of failing and the plastic parts crack.
Anyways I am glad it did so I had an excuse to move to a real water loop set-up. I think I sold the pump to bogmali...
