BigWater 850 GT

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Has anyone tried or know anything about the BigWater 850 GT water cooling as compared to XSPC Rasa 750 kit?

Note:
I know there is a variation of the Rasa of the pump/radiator type.
I've noticed that the RASA has 750 lph as compared to BiGWater having 500 lph.

I'm looking at the cooling of thermaltakes level 10GT.

Thermaltake watercooling has a horrible reputation here for multiple reasons. One of the main problems is that they use aluminum radiators, so if the one in the GT is indeed aluminum, that's reason enough to skip it.

Completely skip over thermaltake water cooling. You'd be 10 fold better going with a closed water loop like an H50/H60 etc over thermaltakes big water series. The waterblock's are garbage, pump is weak, radiator is completely crap, etc.

I made the mistake of getting Thermaltake for my first watercooling, and am now paying the price.
Waiting on a new CPU block and pump to arrive so that I can boot my system back up again. The Block just keeps leaking now, and the pump was locking up. Top it all off, the block they have for the CPU is junk. The coolant just follows a S shaped channel, and there just isn't enough surface area to get as much heat from the chip as possible. Their radiator is more like an AC Evaporator. One long piece of tubing just folded, so the coolant never slows down to get rid of all the heat possible.

Be good to yourself and your rig, get good quality.

I have a BIG Water 850 GT in my Level 10 LCS and it works fine, I buy all my cases from Thermaltake now.
I don't know why anyone would complain about their products. They make some great stuff.
