Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate (CL-W007-PL12BL-A) Enthusiasts Class Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 360MM

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Not sure where to begin..... Got memory upgrade, 2133. was fearful of temps, saw I was running 62 to 64C under load. That is AMD max recommended level. I backed it down to 1333, same temps..... I then realized I have always had an issue with temps, just did not know it. As I was not OCing before. I ordered this in hopes to lower temps by at least 10C. My system now does not go over 48C. It was my first water system. Instructions did take some studying to get it put together. Just take your time and be careful following along. When tightening the heatsink to the backplane, one of the metal inserts tried to turn in the plastic housing. I was worried. But it turned out to be ok. I am more than happy with this cooler. For about twice the price of the best air cooler, you can have this good looking and better cooling option. If you have the room for the 360mm radiator. If you value your computer, get this. going from 64C to 48C is just unbelievable for me. I am running Gigabyte 990 chipset mobo, AMD 8320 FX, 1KW PSU, 9 HDDs, 32GB of 2133 Vengeance DIMMs, HD4850X2(yes, ancient!!!.. lol..)

Cons: The instructions were not the best. They will get you there, but you need to look at it closely and take your time. I didnt care too much for the metal inserts for the plastic backplane, as 1 insert tried to turn in its plastic housing. No real complaints though. I have nothing bad at all to say about the functionality of this cooler.

Pros: This is just to let you know I forgot to say these are running 2133.

Pros: Large capacity, at the time anyway. A hardy drive. Good speed.

Cons: They operate a little warm, but no real complaints about this drive.

Other Thoughts: I originally thought WD was not going to honor their warranty. I was pretty upset, because I have been a WD customer exclusively for the last 20+ years. I got directed to a RMA manager, and he did restore my faith in WD.
I am glad, because I would not own a Seagate, or other brands if they paid me. I have always had good service from their products, and have had way less failures than Seagate. I had to RMA a Seagate drive back when I used them. They were nice enough to send me a defective drive to replace the defective drive I sent them. That was it for them. I expect companies to have a high sense of pride when it comes to quality, and customer service. It has always been: Thank you Western Digital!!!
