Thermaltake Bigwater 760 Pro (CLW0220) Water Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Still great despite a few concerns 04/05/2015

This review is from: Thermaltake Bigwater 760 Pro (CLW0220) Water Cooler

Pros: -Idles at 28 ºC
-Can be assembled how you need it instead of coming as a single unit.
-Comes with plenty of tubing
-Can be used to cool processor and video cards in series

Cons: -Did not fit my SilverStone Raven case without modification (The bracket collides with the motherboard, but can be cut shorter without affecting anything. Without modification it sticks out from the case approx. 1 cm.)
-I think it should come with a greater volume of coolant
-I think the "Refill" line on the front panel is too low

Other Thoughts: After about a year I started getting warnings that my processor was hitting 65 ºC, but I thought it might be because of a new game I was playing. One day, my computer wouldn't start, it looked like the pump wasn't working but I noticed there were bubbled in the line. I slide it out and held it vertically for a few minutes and it worked like normal. The coolant level wasn't down to the refill line yet, but the pump was drawing in air and generating foam in the line. I let the foam settle and refilled the reservoir and I was back to ~50 ºC temps under load.

The coolant should probably contain an anti foaming agent, and the refill line should be a little bit higher, because the pump can really suck some coolant.

If you are having problems, try refilling and degassing the system first. Air and electronic cooling systems do not get along.

4 out of 5 eggs Nice but large 10/14/2014

This review is from: Thermaltake Bigwater 760 Pro (CLW0220) Water Cooler

Pros: It's not a closed system so the tubes may be cut to desired length and coolant may be refilled as necessary.

Cons: The radiator extends farther into my case than I expected and the radiator bracket collides with the edge of my motherboard. (I have a RV03B-WA Silverstone Raven Case)

Other Thoughts: Currently it extends 1/4" beyond flush with the front of my case, but I will eventually dismantle it and remove the last 1/2" of the radiator bracket. This should allow the radiator to set just above the motherboard without colliding.

5 out of 5 eggs Good Speakers 08/11/2014

This review is from: Creative 51MF4120AA002 5.1 Multimedia Speaker System

Pros: Creative is a reliable brand; Good Bass; Clear sound

Cons: Length of speaker wires

Other Thoughts: I have been buying Creative speakers for over a decade now and decided to get these for my wife. I was disappointed the 7.1 channel set wasn't available.
