Hello everyone!

I know it's not too often I get the chance to log in here and do any damage, but I managed to work together a really simple review for Thermaltake. They were kind enough to show a little free love to members of TPU, and a few of us were given some free AIO water coolers for play. Thanks again to TT and TechPowerUp! for the opportunity! Review is in an easy to access/read PDF format in the link below.

I lost quite a bit of photos when my camera card went bad, unfortunately the photos for this review were on that card :mad: Any suggestions that wouldn't have me taking apart the rig? This cooler has become a fixture.

I get better temps from my AIO watersetup, I know that reviews said that IB runs hotter but the difference is quite a substantial 10-20'c higher. I get 60'c after about 6-8hrs of prime95 or 20 runs of linx.

and the funny thing is the design is almost identical to the Antec 620 but the 620 is cheaper and performs better or roughly the same
