post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I give up with my Zalman, I never get good temps on this HSF at all, So I plan to buy different cooling unit. I have two selection now, either go with the Bigwater SE (CL-W0005-01) by TT or go with the Big Typhoon by TT?
wat is pros and cons for both of them?

Well, the Big Water is water cooling...duh...so it has its advantages. However, I have learned never to trust water cooling kits that you can buy in-store. They are usually very non-quality parts, and the change of problems increases. The Thermaltake Bit Typhoon is an awsome cooler, around the same performance as my Thermaltake Beetle. In your case, the Big Typhon is better, unless you can get a good water cooling system. I recommend the Corsair Cool kit.!

The Big Typhoon is obviously cheaper. With some AS5, you'll see a decent drop in load temps. The Big Water is a bit more expensive and not really worth it IMO for a WC rig. If you are looking to invest in a decent WC setup, start looking at swifttech. The Big Typhoon is the best air cooling available right now and is a great investment for the price. It's relatively cheap and keeps my CPU quite cool(38c) under long periods of gaming.

i have the TTBT and i was looking at some reviews of the Big Water and the temps look around the same. my load temps are ~42C and thats with 1.6v to the CPU. i would recommend the TTBT, but then again i have no experience whatsoever with water cooling.

I own the Org. bigwater, basically the same as the SE but without the res. and a faster pump than the SE. The org. kit was much better, the res. just adds to the mess, not to mention the puney 1/4" ID tubing. I would avoid the SE at all costs, basically a money pit to the uninformed. The org. was much better than the SE, produced better temps than my TT big T (now on another rig).. I would look at the Gigabyte water kit, 1/2" tubing, stronger pump, but an iffy waterblock, still, it should produce good temps. If you don't want to spend in the 140's, well, get the big Typhoon.

I see you live in the bay area, east bay here.

Well I use the Big Water on one of my rigs and it does a good job. As mentioned ^^ it is quiet which is a bonus for some. The tubing is a little bit weak but that can be sorted by going to a shop and just getting some of the same size but a little more heavy duty. It worked for me no worries. Overall the bigwater kit is cheap so therefore you can't expect too much. The water block provided is of a reasonable quality, good finish and was very easy to install. Easier to install than a BT. For the money the Big Water is not a bad kit really. In Australia it is about 145 bucks compared to the next entry level kit for about 200 dollars. For comparison the TT BT is about 60 dollars. Take a pick. For my gaming rig I am going back to air as it is reliable and if it needs to be transported then there is no worry of springing a leak. For good reliability and the no care or worry factor "AIR" but for the overclocker that wants to push just that little bit more then the water is a reasonable choice also.
