Thermaltake Big Water 760is - Upgraded using Swiftech Parts - Page 2

Ahhh.. In due time. There is still the additive from Thermaltake in the loop and when I get Blocks for the 7970's I'll get a new Pump and Res, but until the blocks are tested I won't get one, so I have a few months or so.

The Corrosion isn't as serious as you make it out, it's not a.. shut down and remove now thing... And it's not that easy to just remove the stock rad either ;(

That was 4 years of corrosion... There is anti corrosive additive in the fluid in the loop. It's not that serious.

yeah but also there was a reason you could find any info about the 760. thats because enthusiast know that it is not that good at all(worse than air cooling). Why didn't you just wait till you got everything.

As with everything in life, you don't always get to choose your path. I "inherited" these components when the original owner, my boss, needed Intel VT-d and the 3960x he JUST bought didn't support it, I bought a mobo/proc that supported VT-d and I got this setup.

Why didn't I wait.. I had to do something to get the system cooler and the additives are already in the loop, pump/res would have added another $100 at least, if someone already dumped $139 into a system, completely swapping it out for a custom solution isn't cheap. Helping them get to the next level can always be important. Like me, I was doing a lot of google searching trying to find a solution and didn't really come up with much based on my search parameters. Hopefully this post helps others that are seeking answers.

Thank you for your information and insight.

I'll stop by my local Best Buy and Pick one up, right?

Microcenter keeps them in stock, o wait, no they don't.. Crap.

The other variable was, time. I am running the system 24/7 and needed to get parts now to keep it cool. I went to Microcenter and was able to peace together what I purchased. I would have got a whole new setup but they were out of 1/2" barbs and only had (4) 3/8" barbs. I made the best of it and offered my knowledge to anyone with a existing Big Water 760 they would like to make better. Adding the rad to the loop for a period of time while upgrading to a better kit was cheap... $47.

Sorry, that doesn't even deserve a response.

Why am I forced to defend what I did here? Not exactly welcoming. I wouldn't have bought a Big Water 760 from the get go.... but I ended up with it and made it better.

One corrosion is pretty nasty and it's usually better to upgrade at once then to slowly upgrade, also afaik the hyper 212+ will perform about the same as the big water.
