Do it. It's really fun, you get to be a wanabe extreme cooler. It feels good to know you have temps that can only be achieved by Tec or Phase or something.

Thermaltake actually makes some decent stuff as long as you don't mind completing what they cut corners on.

I've noticed that on almost all of their air cooler's, the base is concave. Of the 4 Tt coolers i've checked (2 V1's, 1 Big Typhoon, 1 mini Typhoon), every single one was concave by a good amount.

The Big Typhoon I bought from them needed to be lapped right out of the box. But after lapping, man that thing cools really well, better than my Xiggy DK by about 2C.


One day when I have more time to devote to it, I'll run a nice WC loop....or maybe.....phase change.

You're just misreading the way the quotes messed up the rig.
