"All-in-one" watercooling kits that are compatible with the FT03-mini?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Apologies if this has already been answered, but I've searched about ten different strings of FT03/FT03B and various all-in-one kits and haven't found much definitive info on the subject. It would be nice to compile a list of the Thermaltake Water2.0, Zalman, Antec Kuhler, and Corsair Hx0 options that are confirmed to work in the FT03-mini with minimal or no modification.

So far, I've read that the Antec Kuhler H20 620 works well with it, but haven't seen much info on the others. I'm especially interested to know if anybody here is successfully using the Thermaltake Water2.0 Pro with it. Thank you for looking and for any information you might have!

We used Corsair's H60 as a reference when developing the FT03-MINI so that is another confirmed unit that will work.

Can/should one use an extra fan with the H60 in the FT03 mini? I'm about to order both and I'm wondering if an extra fan is prudent or possible.

Like the post below, I too would like an answer to that (push/pull configuration).

The FT03-mini comes with a 140mm AP fan (mounted under the main frame). You mount the H60 rad above that, inside the main frame. Then you can indeed place the 120mm fan which comes with the H60 above that. Connect the H60-fan to the CPU fan header, the AP141 fan to the chassis header, and the H60 pump direct to the PSU via 4-pin molex.

Depending on your CPU you can probably make a very silent fan profile and still keep your temps under 60C.

has anyone tried the updated corsair h60 '2013 edition' in the ft03-mini?

"Corsair changed the fan, tubing, pump and cooling block"

I believe from what I've read that the Zalman LQ310 will work.

The Thermaltake Water2.0 Pro reviews as "cool, but loud". (Mind you, you'd be junking their fan and using the SilverStone case fan wouldn't you).

EDIT:

The Thermaltake Water 3.0 Performer would seem to fit the bill: 151 x 120 x 27 mm.

CoolerMaster's Seidon 120 fits without its fan (if you want to use the hd/optical trays). I had no trouble taking my 4770k to 4.2ghz either. As cheap as it was, I am impressed.
