Thermaltake BigWater

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just picked up an old thermal take big-water for 20.00 to play with. I have not read many good reviews about this system but though it would be fun to stick on my old emachine with a p4 in it considering it has been just sitting in a closet for years. Anyone have experience with this type of cooler? Is it just complete Garbage?

I don't have experience with it, but how bad could it be?

Its cooling performance falls behind modern air cooling, they mix copper with aluminum, and the pumps are barely strong enough to handle the setup itself. So I'd say it's worth MAYBE the money you paid for it, but probably not quite that much.
