Thermaltake CL-W0121 2U Drive Bay Water Cooling System
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Impressive 02/21/2011

This review is from: Thermaltake CL-W0121 2U Drive Bay Water Cooling System

Pros: Simple all in one kit.
Basic Setup.
Fair price.
Powerful enough for upgrading.
Leak-proof.
Included 1366 socket adapter.

Cons: Aluminum Radiator.
Noisy stock fan.

Other Thoughts: I bought this cooler for my CPU which I primarily use for h.264 encoding. (i7 920 @ 3.8Ghz) With a little tweaking this is really and impressive little kit.

I did away with the black tubing (1/4" ID) and quick disconnects and used the 3/8" ID tubing throughout.

I added a second radiator. a swiftech 120mmx2
Then a third with hopes of expanding this loop to my crossfirex 5870 2GB VGA cards.

The pump is silent and appears to be working very well.
My cpu idles at 4 degrees above ambient and sits at 30 degrees higher under load. I believe the limitation is the CPU water block.

This was my first watercooling attempt and this kit made it extremely easy. 3 months strong and no leaks!

Buy with confidence.
