Yeah but why not spend a few extra bucks and get the good stuff, it's really not much more..And then you will have a decent rig that will really cool and be upgradable....

it is indeed not the top watercooler out there, bought mine ,with an already cracked pump 20% cut off the price...and repaired it with some glue and using it for my gpu on my old wc201 CPU block and radiator..... which by the way fits perfectly on a xfx7600gt with the covers removed, 4 holes perfectly lined up with those on the pcb,im getting 56c full load overclocked from 560 to 666

and added an extra radiator in the cpu loop getting 34 idle, 45 load with ambient temps of 20.5 c all fans on a aerogate II turned down to around 1500 exept the cpu rad fan, it is autocontrolled by the mobo but if i could choose now i would go for a better setup

Thermaltake's are ok I used the kit that came with my Kandalf, then changed to the swiftech block, danger Dens rads and better tubing,I only seen a few degrees cooler, I still use the thermaltake pump though, but this pump don't come with the Big water only the M5 kit or the Kandalf case, It has the highest flow out of all the Thermaltake pumps.
I am happy with it so far.

Bigwater 745 for the price $111.99 at xoxide.com is cheap but the Swiftech H2O-80 Micro Kit $180 is what I would get, all depends how much you have to spend.

Thats why we always tell people they would be better off with high end air than a cheap WC rig, they are wasting money on the cheap kits...
