Thermaltake Big Water 760is - Upgraded using Swiftech Parts - Page 3

post #21 of 22
Thread Starter 
I'm confused at the comments that are being made.

Keeping in mind that I inherited these components. At load I was seeing almost 78c temps the way it was.

Are you saying you advocate letting the system run at those temps while someone saves the money to order something else. Seems stupid to me could take months even for "enthusiasts" who normally save for a while to purchase their rigs, and if someone made a mistake purchasing the Big Water 760, I have provided upgrade possibilities. There is anti-corrosive additive in the fluid being used in my loop.

So unless you two are going to purchase a Rasa kit and send it in my direction or send me some money over Paypal, make sure you keep the aforementioned items on the forefront of your thoughts when hitting the keys on your keyboard.

In defense of Juice, I have had my 760 for about 4 years now. The radiator is aluminum and the block is copper, as of today absolutely no sign of galvanic corrosion. I have only been using the Thermaltake coolant since day one as directed and flush every 6 months or so. In my personal experience and opinion from actually having owned one of these the only real issue is the less than optimal placement of the fan and radiator. I think it was a great idea to add and new block and radiator to the loop for a minimal investment with great returns according to his former temps compared to his new temps he posted. The stock pump appears to be more than adequate pumping at 500 L / hr and has yet to give me any issues.

As for the link posted earlier it appears the guy was using his own custom coolant and possibly had some kind of electrical current running through his loop some how, significantly increasing the corrosion rate. I hope this thread inst going to turn in to some kind of "your stupid and should have bought the good stuff" bash. I joined today hoping to increase my knowledge not to defend my decisions I have made in the past 4 years. I know and agree that Galvanic corrosion is a big deal when not addressed correctly or understood properly, but unless there is some hard facts that having this setup will kill my system I see no point to it. I have yet to see any mass law suits against Themaltake for using such an obvious corrosive mix of metals... maybe that's because most people haven't had those issues with the Thermaltake system other than possibly faulty pumps or less than desirable temps...

Anyways, thanks for the pics Juice looks good.
