Thermaltake Bigwater 760i

Thermaltake showed us a working prototype of what can be their next water-cooling system, Bigwater 760i. They are, however, still studying whether they are going to release this product in the US market or not. Bigwater 760i is an all-in-one water-cooling solution that can be easily installed on two available 5 ¼†bays of your PC case. Check it out.

As you may already know, Thermaltake carries several different water-cooling solutions. They have cases with built-in water-cooling solutions, like Kandalf, Armor and Tai-Chi. They have external solutions like Symphony and Rocket, that are really big, and Tribe, which is smaller. They have pre-assembled solutions – or “all-in-oneâ€, as they may be also called –, like the Silent Water. And finally, they have do-it-yourself kits under their BigWater series.

The problem with do-it-yourself kits is that for the average user they are somewhat complicated to assemble, as they have several different parts that need to be put together. All-in-one solutions provide a water-cooling kit that is far easier to install, as all main components – pump, radiator, fan and water tank – come already connected and ready to be installed. The only “extra†work is replacing the CPU cooler with a CPU block (a.k.a. “cold plateâ€) – and eventually the chipset cooler and the GPU cooler as well.

While Silent Water is an internal pre-assembled kit that still requires some sort of “exotic†installation, as the radiator needs to be installed somewhere – let’s face it, installing a water-cooling system isn’t the same thing as installing a hard drive or a DVD burner – Bigwater 760i is installed using two empty 5 ¼†bays from your case, thus using a more standardized installation procedure.

We think that for the average user looking for a high-end internal water-cooling solution Bigwater 760i is a terrific solution, as anyone that has installed a hard drive or a CD/DVD drive before can install this unit without any hassle.

Below you can see some pictures of Bigwater 760i. We honestly hope that Thermaltake releases this product in our market.

And where is all the heat supposed to go? 5.25 drive bays are probably one of the worst spots to put a rad due to like no air movement. All that heat is just gonna buildup and recirculate.

Nice and compact; I like it. I wish they had transparent tubing though.

The air wont really re-circulate. It just needs to be forced out of the case. You can easily do that with cases that have a fan that blows hot air OUT of the top of the case.

so far, it looks nice!

Me too. They'll probably end up with clear tubing in the final revision.

At first glance i though someone had taken a baseball bat to a PSU.
