NAWZ77 - I am seeing what amounts to a significant difference, up to 7C, over multiple reviews in the excellent post above yours. You have the right to your opinion and I will never argue that, but the fact is that the Water2.0 Extreme is a far superior unit and I would buy it if I were into non-Custom pseudo-liquid cooling, and I would not even consider the H100 which is by all accounts an overpriced system outperformed by good air coolers. The Thermaltake Water2.0 Extreme is, I do believe, the first SCLCS that has actually beaten the top air cooling units. You may not realize that there are huge design constraints when it comes to building a system like this, and Thermaltake has managed to take advantage of every little piece of space they are given, while keeping the price more than fair, and outperforming the competition by a considerable amount. Corsair has just been sitting on their rear, thinking they are untouchable, but they have just been drop-kicked off the throne.
The fact that it can even compare to a real liquid cooling kit is impressive on its own, and something Corsair has never been able to do.
Also, you do realize that it takes $4 to buy a pair of Y-cables and you have push-pull, which is likely worth 1-3C, and should you add more powerful fans in push pull, I would go so far as to say that 5-7C drop is not unreasonable.
Way to go Thermaltake!
+1 for not being a blind fanboy and having a brain man
oh, also the hardware secret review shows it is actually QUIETER and get better temps than the "almighty" H100.. lol talk about failure
1 more thing: when you have a 240mm rad, closed loop water cooling system OUTPERFOMED by a AIR cooler.. youre doing it wrong
(yes thats right, im talking about corsair)
