A step in the right direction for Thermaltake

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Check THIS out. It isn't great, but it's a start. In 3 more years we might see a 1/2" block from TT.

Don't think for one second that this means you're off my list TT...

That's the same thing that they use for the base of the Volcano 4005 heat exchanger....same design anyway. It looks like the barbs are 1/4 native also, using adapters to get to 3/8.........

The Volcano 4005 as a stand alone cooling solution is garbage. I set it up with a Swiftech drive bay resevoir and a Swiftech 350 pump and got temps about 10 degrees or so higher than with a Zalman 9500 on my Pentium D 920 system. And that was with a 81 CFM UFO fan on it at 4600 RPM.

Now, it is designed to be an add-on to the Big Water kit......I do not have a Big Water so could not test it in that manner, but there are several reviews online that have done just that.....basically, they report a 2c or less change. It could be due to the weak pump in the Big Water, or the insanely restrictive design of the Volcano 4005, or the fact that Thermaltake tells you to route the water through the water block first, instead of sending it through the heat exchanger first (when I tested it, I had the water go through the heat exchanger first as it should be)
