Anyone using a Thermaltake 745

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Ive just ordered a 745 , and was wondering if anyone is using this setup. Im a noob to water ,and decided to go with a kit . To me it looks like it would take a gpu block without any problems. Compaired to a regular big water , the pump seems good 400/lph and the dual radatior setup seems enought to run a gpu /cpublock . Any comments /suggestions? thx for a great fourm . Rukkee

too much money for what your getting.. you can build a real nice 1/2 in tubing setup for that, and throw a GPU block in there too.

Seems like a heck of a deal to me. Pricegrabber shows it for $170. Google for reviews--the one I saw was very positive.

Not a good solution for those who want tweak-unique, but a simple way to get components that work together.

Hope this helps--stay cool.

You can build a much better system for $170.

For some reason they just don't want to listen...

Well i know you guys dont like kits, but for a first time water user it easier to go with a kit imo . The 745 seems to do a decent job of cooling , from the reviews ive read, and it looks half way decent. Im just wondering if anyone that is using it has any tips or suggestions . Rukkee
post #7 of 18
well i look at it like this... the kit comes dissasembled and with the PITA crush fittings (trust me i know they suck) and if your gonna go through allll that trouble for a prebuilt kit just get the custom one. Once you get all the parts in front of you its no harder then that kit. If you need help selecting the right parts or have any questions about installing when you have all the parts ask us well gladly lead you to the water holy grail. Im just saying go custom youll thank yourself in the future

I'm listening, I just have different preferences. Please forgive me for my nonconformity--I may need your help later.

For those who want an inexpensive, quiet, compact, turn-key system, the Bigwater SE and BigWater 475 have gotten very good reviews.

To wit:

I'm not saying it's the best for everyone, just offering another option.

Rukkee--I'm currently installing a BigWater SE in a P180 case. So far it seems pretty straightforward, and I don't have any tips other than the general ones for most systems--I suggest you look at the fags in the stickies about installation, location, etc. I'll let you know if I learn anything, and feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

Stay cool!

They aren't worth their money. If you took a nice custom and a Bigwater I'd bet that you get more cooling per dollar with custom. I could put together a kit for $150 with ok parts and get better results with it as compared to either the thermaltake systems.

Okay, you have me intrigued.

What would you spec for $153 or less complete, including tax and delivery, that would:

1. Have both CPU and GPU waterblocks (Athlon64 x2 and 7800 GT).

2. Easily mount internally in an Antec P180 case.

3. Have a silent pump--so quiet that you have to put your ear against it to hear it running. (This means either a silent high-flow pump or--if going with a silent low-flow pump--radiator & waterblocks that are optimized for low flow operation, unlike the high-flow units that custom folks usually use.)

4. Run with inaudible fans--say a 12cm fan at 1700 rpm.

5. Cool a 3GHz Pentium to below 37C under load.


Thanks for your offer--you could help out the silent-PC crowd.
