In addition to new power supplies and cases, Thermaltake also introduced a few new cooling products at CES this year. These include a handful of new all-in-one liquid coolers along with a new black version of its opaque coolant.
RGB All-in-One Liquid Cooler? Yes Please
Among the new all-in-one liquid coolers are the new Water 3.0 Riing Red 140 and 280 and the Water 3.0 Riing RGB 280. In short, these are simply the existing variants of the Water 3.0 units with new Riing Red or RGB fans.
The radiators of all the units are 27mm thick, and aside from the lighting differences, the fans all have identical spec sheets. They’ll spin at speeds between 800–1,500RPM in standard PWM mode, and 400–1000RPM in low-noise mode. Noise will be between 18.5-26.4dBA and push 22.14-40.6CFM of air while generating 0.57–2.01mm of static pressure.
The RGB variant also comes with a separate module to manage the LED lighting.
And Black Opaque Coolant
If custom liquid cooling is more your thing, though, you'll perhaps be glad to know that Thermaltake finally introduced a black variant of its C1000 opaque coolant, expanding the selection to eight colors in total.
The C1000 coolant is compatible with copper, aluminum, brass, and nickel-based water blocks, and it's also fully biodegradable.
Thermaltake did not say when the products would be available, nor did it give any indication of pricing on the liquid coolers. We presume they’ll carry a premium over the standard Water 3.0 units–the Riing 14 RGB fans don’t come cheap.
It boggles the mind :)
Once it finally breaks, the cold hard reality will kick in: This stuff is garbage...
RGB leds on everything is the equivalent of WORD Art in office back in the 90s and early 2000.
As soon as corrosion starts killing the RGB lights, that's when money gets spent on fixing the problem.
I give it 2 years, and it will start to die off - probably the same way consumer 3D TV's have.
