Thermaltake Releases its Water 2.0 All-in-one LCS Series

By - Source: Thermaltake | B 21 comments

Thermaltake has introduced its new all-in-one Liquid Cooling System (LCS), the Water 2.0 Series.

In the growing trend of all-in-one liquid cooling systems, such as the Corsair H80 or Antec Kühler H₂O 620, end-users are looking for the "easy" route to a liquid cooling setup and the cooling benefit a LCS can offer. To join the trend, Thermaltake has introduced its own all-in-one LCS series called Water 2.0. The series comes with a standard full copper base plate for better heat conductivity. It includes a powerful pump, within the waterblock, for rapid water circulation. Dual 12cm high airflow fans provide faster heat dissipation and two low evaporation tubes effectively decrease the loss of coolant. The high-tech sealed circulation system helps prevent any leaking issue.

Water 2.0 Extreme
The Extreme has a specially designed 240mm large surface radiator and the support of two more 12cm fans for additional heat dissipation. It comes with a Windows-based software to monitor and customize a wide range of parameters, including pump speed, coolant temperature and fan speed.




Water 2.0 Pro
The Pro has a standard radiator, which is twice as thick as others. The increased size of the radiator allows for a larger cooling area and still only takes up the space of a single 120mm fan slot. This gives users increased cooling performance when they don't have the chassis space to install a dual-radiator setup.




Water 2.0 Performer
The Performer uses a standard size 120mm radiator that will work with most users cases. It is geared toward first-timer users of LCS or those who want liquid cooling but aren't ready to make the jump to traditional LCS setups.

    ups yes I forgot about Coolit. But their design is different I believe. Not a closed loop but a built together radiator and pump? I think I see a quick coupling or 2...maybe I am wrong, I am sure you will tell me.

    I was just thinking out load that if intel would make there new chips run hotter the water cooling bussnes wouldn't be hurting so much after we released the sandybridge that overclocked well on air after market coolers.

    Nothing wrong with another "me too" product. It looks like its time for Tom's to do an article/benchmarks for noise and cooling with the current crop of closed loops liquid coolers. ...perhaps compare them to a the real thing as well.

    Forgive me i was tired, and this comment was funny to me, at that pre-coffee moment.

    I second the want of the db/cooling benches for the new batch of cl water coolers.

    interesting! im considering a Corsair H100 as a purchase soon - the only problem i have with the H100 is the fan control - you have to pull the side of the case and change the fan speed using the dial on the waterblock itself - the Water 2.0 Extreme has software control which is exactly what i want - so im keen to see a Water 2.0 Extreme vs H100 test to see if the Thermaltake option can do as well as the H100

    You don't have to use the H100's built-in fan control. You can plug the fans into your mobo or a fan controller (that's what I did) and have very accessible and precise control.

    The Corsairs fans are killer. While pushing a lot of air through that radiator they're just too loud. A flaw in my eyes. I chose to use 4 x Scythe S-Flex in a push-pull on my H100 and it's dramatically quieter. ...the price the enthusiasts pay is that we're picky.

    hastenFirst off it's "inventor". Secondly, you are forgetting Coolit.Let's get our facts straight.

    Yay for CiilIt. A company so effing stupid they make the cooling system sound an alarm if the temp drops below 20C. What a pack of morans!! The whole point of their gear is to run at as low a temp as possible, and then they make it squeal like a piggy, making the PC unusable, when it actually does what its supposed to.
    I'm NEVER going to buy any of their shit products again, or any of their stuff that gets re branded and sold by others. They are utter idiots and their customer service is atrocious.
    The solution for the low temp alarm was to "just run a CPU stress utility to keep the temp above 20C". Bunch of complete pricks!!

    You couldn't find a more constructive mature way to express that? I'm just say'n.
