IntroductionMy thanks go out to Thermaltake for kindly providing the test sample.
|Material||All copper designed|

|Quick install connector||For 6.4mm ID (1/4”) tubing For 9.5mm ID (3/8”) tubing|
CompatibilityThermaltake says that the W3 is fully supports the nForce4 chipset. This does not tell you a whole lot – are you supposed to expect compatibility with every nForce4 motherboard? Or is it that the block is capable of cooling down a nForce4 chipset?
The Aqua Brazing All Copper series W3 waterblock is packaged very similarly to Thermaltake’s W3 GPU waterblock which we reviewed previously. The box is of exactly the same dimensions, with nice graphics on the front and specs on the back.
After opening the package, all you see at first is the block itself. By opening the compartment to the right, the rest of the contents is revealed:
- Aqua Brazing All Copper series W3 waterblock
- Barbs (both 3/8” and ¼”) and tubing
- Mounting kit (which includes foam spacer)
- Thermal paste
