According to the 'detailed specs' of the bigwater kit listed on tigerdirect, it is all aluminum radiator. Not 'copper tube with aluminum fins'
I could not find one reference to the use of copper tubes brazed to aluminum fins being used on this product. So where do you get your information from?

They are a joke aren't they, I hear so many horror stories like that and then when someone comes through asking about them they cant understand why we hate the things so much....

oh i jsut wanted a detailed explaination of why you hate them, i was not critisizing anyone for not liking bigwater or lamewater or watever i like to know about products before i simply just dismiss them completely if you understand?

I thank everyone in here for sharing their hatred toward Lamewater, it was a thrilling experience.

It was a good beginners setup though now Im on other things.

Get the Switech H20-220 Compact kit if you're looking just to cool the CPU and not want to build your own. I have set this up for a friend, it kept his Q6600 B3 @3.33ghz cool, it's been running for a year now.

Just trash all around before i got my custom kit i had a 850i kit,idle temps were 48 c clocked at 3.5 ghz during the time i had my q9450,load temps were 60 c or so,then did my custom kit

q9550 lapped at 3.7 ghz,idle temps are low 20s,load won't ever hit 43 c or so,if i leave at stock load temps won't exceed 35 c or so.

so yea stay away from thermaltake you can get a air cooler that performs better
