Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate (CL-W007-PL12BL-A) Enthusiasts Class Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 360MM
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: 360mm. Room for 6 120mm fans in push pull using brass number 6 machine screws of 1 inch and 1/16th long to hold each fan to the radiator.

One pump, one big fan connection.

Installed on top of the Roswell Thor Case with the tubes dropping down through the hole towards the CPU.

Keeps the i73939 CPU 6 core cool at 34 degrees internetting and idle at 32. I expect to be gaming at 4.7 once I can get the ram stable at those levels.

Replaced a Corsair ih-100e Extreme 240mm radiator kit. That one idled the CPU at 38 degrees and gamed at 60c

If I replace this radiator, I will be purchasing a 480mm. The bigger you can cool, the more you can protect your CPU.

I am not loyal to one maker or another but find Corsair to be slow in producing 360mm's and 480mm's so I am experimenting with Thermaltake.

Cons: None found yet.

They need to start making HPTX cases large enough to hold 360mm and 480mm's out of the box. I don't much care for duct tape holding the radiator and fans on top while building the system. But this is Arkansas soo.... think out of the box.

Other Thoughts: Need to make factory cases that will fit these things ata 360mm to 480mm bolt on that has also a greater height above the motherboards.

Edited because it has been one year now since the computer build with this radiator was in operation almost continously 24/7. Rad temps at CPU holds 37C idle when sleeping at night as a space heater that does not pull much power compared to my two oil filled space heaters.

The fans are loud but Im deaf so it does not matter.

Im more than happy with this radiator. However, future builds will have much, much larger cases like the HPTX size. If I build a dual cpu system, I will have to find a way to bold and hang two of these radiators some where in the system after drilling through the side panel somewhere to run the hoses and cpu block. A little bit of a Ozark work around but should work well. I have not yet found cases that support this radiator block with 6 fans bolted on straight through without modding. Maybe one day I will. But not today.

Many of you ask if the case or that case or some other case will fit this radiator. Generally Im forced to say maybe the 240's but not the 360s because in my opinion the cables or case fans up top get in the way. Then the 5.25 bays stacks in the front might pinch your loops to and from your CPU block

Ultimately you will have to buy the rad, fans, the case of your choice and take a chance unless you contact Coolermaster and are told specifically which cases on the market will bolt this 360mm rad on.

G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-8GAB

Pros: It's a nice RAM. But sits in the drawer as a spare set of RAM, basic ram.

Cons: I think Newegg is phasing out motherboards suitable for this ram. I will have to move on with the DDR 3 Trident 2400's while I can still get some. Use those for spares to the 64 gigs on 8 sticks on this monster computer.

Other Thoughts: Ram is cheap. Get it. Lots of it.

This Ram? I think it's day has come and gone, but again it is good ram, for spares on a older build. I have been building computers since the days of the famous EDO ram. Remember those?

5 out of 5 eggs Still going 10/08/2015

This review is from: CORSAIR Voyager GT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFVYGT3A-64GB

Pros: It's a wonderful device. But filled. It sits on the table holding basic nvidia drivers and such so that downloads are limited after a rebuild or new build.

Cons: I must buy bigger sticks. MUCH bigger. A terabyte stick would be awesome.

Im half tempted to try a system build that has this stick as a primary C drive.

Other Thoughts: I have used this stick in the older machines as a windows virtual file years ago. It is fast enough for that sort of work. Back then on a new USB 3 drive.

With these monster computers I don't see the need for that anymore.

What I demand is terabyte or larger. I just bought a 5 terabyte USB 3.0 drive that literally was only a 120 dollars in a store. Why not memory sticks too?
