Thermaltake's Water 2.0 Extreme control software looks identical to the H20 920 ChillControl.
The pump and mounting plates look identical, but looks can be decieving.
I believe this unit outperforms the 920.
Typical rad (H100) is 27mm thick. Core is 20mm thick?
TT Water2.0 Extreme is 50% thicker.
H20 920 is double thick.
H100 & Water2.0 are 240mm (2x 120mm), while the 920 is only 120mm.
SO.. The Water2.0 is 50% larger than the 920.
I wonder what the FPI (fins per inch) is for both? I bet they are close.Core Temp 1.0 RC4 data
with full Folding At Home 100% load, 22c ambient:
i7 2600k, 4 core, 3.4GHz stock. 95 watts stock,
OC to 4.4 GHz, 91 watts estimated???, VID 1.366
H2O 920: i7 Core Temp ~ 62c
i7 3930k, 6 core, 3.2GHz stock, 130 watts stock,
OC to 4.2 GHz, 156 watts estimated, VID 1.346
Water 2.0 Extreme: i7 Core Temp ~ 62c
The Water 2.0 Extreme is much quieter than the H20 920.
I would not use anything less for a Sandy Bridge - E.
If it fits, use it instead of the H20 920 or similar.
BTW: I have the Thermaltake WATER2.0 Pro on order to do "THE MOD" to my new EVGA GTX670.
It looks a lot like the H20 920, with similar RAD size. BUT.. NO USB control, no control software.
I bet the fans are better, and the whole thing will be quieter.
