2 out of 5 eggsCracking

Pros: Well, it did a good job at keeping the cpu temp down. Great for average performance.

Cons: Wow, less than 3 days of operations it starts to make cracking sounds, VERY LOUD.

Other Thoughts: It really is worth the price to pay. There also needs to be an option for minimizing the tube lengths.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

The cracking sound you are referring to may be air pockets within the pump.
Please contact customer service at your earliest convenience to troubleshoot this issue in detail.

1 out of 5 eggsPump failed, processor fried!

Pros: This product WAS amazing. it performed amazingly and decreased my temperature by at least 20 degrees at all times.

Cons: I'm 2 months outside the 1 year warranty and the pump has failed. My processor overheated and fried itself. now I'm out a cooling system AND a processor. Very unsatisfied and will certainly never buy Thermaltake again.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive cooling in a small package

Pros: Small enough to fit in a mini-ITX case, easy installation, very solid mounting hardware, better than expected cooling

Cons: The screws that go through the front fan to the radiator were too short to accommodate the rubber grommets which attach it to my case, but 1.5 inch 6-32 machine screws from the hardware store did the trick.

Other Thoughts: I installed this cooler on an AMD A10-7850K in a Lian Li PC-TU100 mini-ITX case, which was having overheating issues. I removed the front fan which came with the case, and had just barely enough room for the radiator and one of the two Thermaltake fans. Everything fit very snuggly in this tiny case, and I was thankful for the flexibility of the tubing.

Even with half the airflow it's supposed to have, the CPU is now running cooler than I thought possible. Previously, with an aftermarket heatsink and fan, the idle temperature was 45C, under light load it was 55C, and when gaming was constantly above 70C. Now, it idles at 30C, 35C under light load, and 45-50C while gaming. I don't think I'll ever go back to air cooling...

5 out of 5 eggsgreat deal

Pros: pump is quiet (more than I expected), not too hard to figure out the instructions if you follow the pics, awesome cooling with one fan installed (space limited)

Cons: may take a few tries to get the radiator screws aligned in tight quarters (no surprise)

Other Thoughts: didn't use the stock fans, had some Cougars lying around

Pros: Has variable speed capability and runs very cool.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: My first AIO liquid cooler for my first PC build, keeps my amd fx-8320 black edition @ 3.5 GHz at 10-15 C when idle and it never passes 40 C under full load.

Cons: Instructions were poopoo but I figured it out.

Other Thoughts: This this destroys everything, case closed.

4 out of 5 eggsGood alternative to giant air coolers!

Pros: -- Cools very well.
-- Installation was a breeze.
-- Fans rather quiet when running in silent mode.

Cons: -- Not as cold as dry ice.
-- Dual fans can be very loud in turbo mode.

Other Thoughts: I installed this cooler over an AMD FX-8350 in order to control the CPU temps better than with the stock CPU cooler. This product accomplished that goal very well. It effectively keeps the CPU from going much above 50C under full load, and keeps the CPU at roughly ambient temperature at idle. Gaming temps are between 40C and 50C. The radiator successfully pulls heat from the CPU and dumps it out of the rear of your case, keeping the CPU as well as other components very cool. I now have no concerns about heat or damage to my CPU whatsoever.

Note that I only run my CPU at stock or turbo speeds. For overclocking, you may wish to go with the Thermaltake 3.0 Pro or beyond, but for a normal user that wants to feel confident that their CPU is well cooled and protected from damage, this cooler will accomplish that easily.

Lastly, with my fan profile set to silent, the fan noise from this unit is quite acceptable. As temps increase, the fan speed increases, but the cooler itself prevents any major spikes which would cause the fans to be super noisy. When gaming or under normal loads this cooler will serve you very well!

5 out of 5 eggsWow !!!

Pros: This is a really nice inexpensive cooler for AMD over clocking. Running 48 MHZ on and A10 6800K and it runs at 48C with FAH running at full blast.

Cons: I have mine set up so that it pulls air from inside the case. Some people say I should reverse it and pull in the coolest air from outside the case. I would love to see the flames back and forth over _that_ discussion.

Other Thoughts: Mine seems to "saturate" at 55C. No matter what fan setting I use, it will never get over 55, but not get any cooler. I can run it at 1750 rpm and there is no difference from running wide open....my cpu still stays at 55. No sure. Put it outside the case???? *(I have my CPU running at 4.8 GHz and it runs at a constant 48C at 1691 rpm).

5 out of 5 eggsThermalake Water 3.0

Pros: The unit was easy to install and so far I have no complaints. Using it in a gaming rig in my garage in south Florida where the temps get pretty high. The computer stays in the 37 degree range regardless. So far so good, I am happy with it.

Cons: none
