Thermaltake introduces its new Big Water 745 kit with single and dual radiators. Adding an improved water block and a move to 3/8" tubing Thermaltake takes the Big Water to a new level. Also included is a beefed up pump with larger reservoir. We'll check the new parts inside and out while testing it against its predecessor.

Is this watercoolingkit not for socket 478? I see that it has the same H-clip as the BigWaterSE, that was also made for socket 478...

Me_Again ... Thermaltake doesn't mention the 478 socket mobos but I would say it would fit... I can double check for you later today... :)

If it sells for the price quoted in the review I would have to say yes...

Thank you for posting such a thorough review and great pictures.
We have a full-size BTX motherboard.
For large image and more information: http://www.intel.com/products/motherboard/d955xcs/index.htm



Please note the rectangular location of the holes around the processor. We have had soooo many problems finding things to work with this.:banghead: Do you know if the Bigwater 745 will work with this?

Thanks!

I would imagine it would since it says it supports ATX and BTX motherboards.

Many products have said that, but then they usually only mean the pico-btx which has square holes, not rectangular.

BTXBummed .... the BTX bracket for the BW745 attaches to the top two holes and to the case at the bottom... do you have the clearance at the bottom in your case? Facing the front of the mobo what is the measurement of the holes at the top of the CPU from side to side?

The Clip for the BTX mobo here measures 4 3/8" across from the hole left of Themaltake to the hole to the right.... hope those caps in front of the cpu socket don't get in the way ...

So this can fit the socket 478, I do have the thermaltake big water, decent cooler, this seems to be really nice, though im not a huge guy on thermaltake...... But if it can fit id be willing to buy this unit, probably alot of money to ship over here, not many thermaltake shops in Czech Republic..... Thanks for your help!

where can i find this kit? seem like not alot of online stores carries it and its mid feb already. I found out it here http://www.case-mod.com/store/therm...0076-liquid-cooling-system-p-1856.html?src=fr for ~$170 which is alot more than the review quoted price. Urlyin, can you check with thermaltake for price confirmation? Should i wait a while for price to drop? Also if i decide to go with this kit for ~$170 are there any other kit/custom kit that can be better for the price? Thank you for the review. I just read the review and i want it! This will be my first water cooling kit. :toast:

Sumasage... The 144 USD was a quoted price from Thermaltake, from what I've seen the 170 is one of the better prices.... If you're not in a hurry I would wait to see if it comes down some. I wouldn't pay much more than that for the kit.... you can also buy it here. Also another kit to check out is this one here

This Cooling System is great, but I´ve got a Socket A 462 Board.
Does someone know if it fits on my board?
I want to use it also with my GFX card for OC only with XP-M. I hope to reach 2700 core

Not unless you have holes around the socket ...

:banghead: :banghead: Yes, I do have. It´s Abit AN7.
But does the cooling have the brackets for Socket A?
There´s nothing written about nor that it supports Socket A.

Thanks Urlyin

No brackets for Socket A ... doesn't mean you can't use a different Water Block with 3/8" connectors ... that will fit your mobo
But if you have the two holes you should be good to go ... the kit does not have brackets but clips that connect to the post that are mounted through the holes ... with a back plate

:cry:

Well I´m not sure about this.
The AN7 has 4 holes I think like the 939 Mobo´s. But could I use the original 745 water block with a holding clip for Socket A from the SE editon or is this water block definitively not made for Socket A. Is there anyone who tried this cooling on Socket A.

Thanks for your patience
