Thermaltake Bigwater 760i + GPU Waterblock

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I'm a complete newbie to watercooling so I'm interested in an All-in-one kit. I gave a look at the Thermaltake Bigwater 760i, and I really like it.
I would also like to watercool the GPU (HD5770). I founded this Waterblock (http://www.xoxide.com/xspc-rasa-gpu-water-block.html), and I don't know if it would fit/work with the Bigwater.

EDIT: Thanks to Crabid suggestion, I'm also interested in XSPC Rasa 750 kits. I was looking the RX360, but it costs a bit too much. Is there something more cheap?

Anything else I should know?

Thank you.

Avoid thermaltake like the plague. The numbers of reasons I don't care to innumerate.

Have a look at the XSPC Rasa 750 kits instead.


Since you will want to cool a GPU as well, look at a Rasa 750 RX360 or RS360.


A 240mm rad wont cope well with a GPU in the loop as well.

The RX360 looks really nice! But the price is a bit too high, since I also have to buy the GPU Waterblock. Is there another model a bit more cheap? Thank you!

Not that I would recommend.

Also, I don't think you can add a GPU block to the bigwater sets easily.


I'll go have a look.

What about the XSPC Rasa 750 RS360 WaterCooling Kit?
What changes from the RX360 to the RS360?

Thank you for wasting your time helping me

It's NP.

The RS is a low profile version. It can perform similar to the RX radiator, but only with high fan speeds.

I had a look at the big water kit, the tubing size is 3/8" ID so you should be able to fairly easily get a block that will fit with it, but that doesn't mean the radiators will be able to get rid of the heat or that the pump will be able to maintain enough flow.

I think it's better to go for the XSPC kit.
I might buy the RS version, since its more cheap.
Other negative points of the RS against the RX?

Not really, I mean the RX is better at dumping heat, essentially because it's bigger, but around the 2000rpm mark the difference between them is reduced significantly.

Thank you very much. There shouldn't be problems mounting the XSPC Rasa GPU right?
I also have a noob-question, how does the radiator get power? I mean, it connects to the PSU?
Is there something else I should know before buying them?

Radiators are just bits of metal that transfer heat from the fluid to the air.


Fans on it will be connected to the PSU, normally by a molex connector...
