[TT] Thermaltake Xpressar claims 20°c lower than water - Page 4

post #31 of 47
Is that 20C better than the Big Water? I am curious how they can make claims like that when there are so many factors involved in cooling, nevermind water cooling.

I'd have to imagine that the only reason why someone hasn't thought of this before is because of condensation?

Instead of making it a whole system, i bet they'd sell like crazy if they just adapted to existing WC setups....or maybe people already do that too.

Guys who are complaining about heat, stick your computer in the basement.
It helps cool things down, since the lower levels are always cooler.

Just curious as to how many of you that are bashing Thermtake water cooling actually have used it. I have found it to be very effective and reliable at a reasonable cost. Why don't you guys post screen shots of your water cooling temps with cpuz screen shots showing voltage and hardware monitor showing voltage and temps. Most of you probably don't even use liquid cooling. I have used several different brands of pumps blocks radiators etc. and have actually seen very little difference in any of them regardless of price. The rig I am typing this at is a Thermaltake Kandalf LCS 2 years old and still going strong. Original pump radiator fans and liquid, The only place I have found them to be cheap is in price.

Currently running 62C at full load QX6700 B3, 1.42 Volts 3.5GHz. GTX 360, D5 Vario, D-Tek Fuzion V2. If there is a TT that can cool this pig better send it over, I'll run it through the paces and if it does I buy it. If it doesn't I get to blow it up. Sound fair. I would imagine it would have a hard time keeping this chip at those temps at stock speed.

As far as why most hate the TT water kits, maybe it's because they use aluminum and copper, say it with me "galvanic corosion". We read stories all the time about how the "TT kit leaked and toook out . . . " Another reason why we hate TT water kits.

Glad you had good luck with yours and may you continue to but . . . as someone else said, just because your friend uses heroin and doesn't have a problem doen't mean you should try, or something to that affect.

What others have you used then?

I've personally not used a Thermaltake (tack) kit, but I know people who have and have seen them in person. They are made of poor quality plastic, feel and look like children's toys, and are notoriously unreliable...

Take a look at this review:
