TT BigWater has been upgraded

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
http://www.xoxide.com/thermaltake-bigwater-745.html

Just been upgraded with an external 240mm radiator and a 120mm internal radiator. It now uses 3/8 tubing..Finally, they have hopped on the good-size tubing bandwagon. Includes a pump/reservoir assembly and a stand for the external rad. If you want to get your feet wet in watercooling, this is the kit for you. Even me, who built a custom killer watercooling setup, would reccomend this because it uses 3/8 tubing and 3 120mm radiators.

I saw that the other day and it looks interesting... Although for the price you could almost get a custom watercooling setup that would probably be better... it would only have one rad, but probably a better cpu block and pump...

Do you know if the pump has been updated to provide more flow? that's a complaint I have heard about the last 2 big water setups.

It's too bad I don't have any money... I really want to water cool... oh well, maybe once I graduate and get a job, but Lord knows I don't want to get into the 'real' world

Do you know any thing about the Alienware KOOL Silent Liquid Cooling Technology.I'm going to buy the case from here on OC, but would like to know how well it will or should cool my 6800 gt oc and 3400 Clawhammer. Seems heat holds me bad on a nice OC on this CPU

bah! I just put two of the BigWater SE kits in this weekend one into my computer and one into a friend of mine's computer... I'm impressed with the performance of them but I would like more to see more GPH. Temps dropped about 12C on my system over my Thermalright SI-97.

The BigWater SE kits use 3/8" tubing as well... not sure why they say this is an improvement over previous revisions.

I saw a review a couple months ago where they tested the big gaming rivals... and they said that the alienware watercooled system kept overheating on them because the water cooling system wasn't powerful enough... I'll try to remember where I saw it...

This is quite off topic though...

I think this was it, but I didn't read though all of it to be srue

All I could find was the case the had 2 video card cooling. I like the case and I guess I could always upgrade the cooling parts in the future, but if you do find that link please let me know.

The pump is rated at 400 L/hr. I don't think that's anywhere enough with TWO radiators. You throw in a GPU block and we'll see how well this thing does.

I also noticed that the radiatorss are aluminum and the block is copper. Not the best idea thermaltake has ever had.

I find that the plan to "upgrade in the future" never quite works out when you're buying a kit. I bought a Innotech kit for really cheap with the plan to upgrade some stuff and it ended up being more of a pain then just buying a new setup. I ended up getting stuck with $100 into it for a month before I could sell it.

If you're worried about galvanic corrosion, I believe the radator's fins are aluminum, but the tubing is copper. Hope this helps.

Yeah...now that I look at the pics I see the pipes. That's odd that they wouldn't list the copper.
