I have two of the extreme units running now and they are working well enough that I would put them in my next build. The flexible tubing was a must for my application as was the lower profile pump. The software control is also nice, and the cheap fans I use daisy chain together so the 2 connector limit didn't really impact my build.
These units feature a nice improvement in mounting bracket design over the Corsair/Antec units - a snap ring that fastens the mounting bracket to the pump. Yes you no longer have to worry about getting the pump in place while wrestling with that bracket ever again....
I can only hope the warranty support is decent if I ever need it.
Agree'd tho these loops are about 1-2 months old already. They have been for sale on Newegg for over a month. The Water 2.0 Pro out performs a NH-D14 by 2-5C. So I imagine the Extreme has to be much better. I personally plan on buying the Water 2.0 Pro for my next build (clear side), unless Corsair launches a new closed loop series that is better.

No, 80c is VERY high for 4.2, and that vcore, period.

It should be around 70-72.

What a coincidence, you already own an H100...

Anyway, it is sad to see some of hate in this thread. I have never considered ThermalTake to be a "go to brand" if you know what I mean but after using this product in a customer's build I would not hesitate to use it myself. It really is a great product.

They may be last months news, but even with all the reviews out whenever I mention them I hear "Oh I thought the h100 was supposed to be the better CLC"
It doesn't take a genius to figure out that two coolers made by the same company (Asetek) with almost no difference besides radiator thickness - the thicker radiator is going to do better........

The H100 is also bulkier(pump) and harder to work with.(tubing) I have two of these Thermaltake units both in a single M-ITX Bitfenix Prodigy case - I don't think that would be possible with the H100s even with the thinner radiator.(or at least not as easy to do)

Anyone knows a good 120mm fan that is good for a 120mm Radiator? I just got the Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer and I would like to replace the 2 Thermaltake fans that come with it.
Any help would be appreciated.

The H100 isnt a Asetek product, its a CoolIT product, Corsair went with CoolIT after the success of the H50 & H70(both Asetek),
but then Asetek decided to get in more "partners" for their AOI cooler solution, which Corsair didnt like and they went the CoolIT way after that.
Its quite simple(atm) if the pump/cooler is round its a Asetek design, if it isnt its CoolIT.

And everyone saying something about TTs customerservice, well you mostlikely wont be dealing with them, but actually Aseteks, the same goes for build quality.
post #58 of 122
Interesting I had not kept up enough I guess assuming that Corsair had all their units made by the same company. Is there anything significant different besides the pump shape?

Still looking for any hint on whether the pump on these will make a standard for Asetek noise or if it's a newer and improved mechanism somehow, since these are more recent in production. I've tried 2 Intel coolers by Asetek, and both made a noticeable hum due to strong pump vibration.
