Thermaltake Announces The Pacific RL140 Water Cooling Kit; Second Kit In A Series

Thermaltake was also present at Computex this year, and it had something to show by way of cooling products. Designed primarily for those looking for a customized water cooling build, the company released a whole new package called the Pacific RL140 Water Cooling Kit.

The kit contains everything you need to get a head start on a system starting with a Pacific W1 CPU water block, which the company said should fit any "modern" CPU. The pump and reservoir, combined into a Pacific PR15-D5 pump/reservoir combo, features a 150 mm reservoir and D5 pump. Additional cooling includes a 140 mm radiator and two Luna 12 120 mm LED fans, with the latter including anti-vibration mounts.

Other parts include six brass compression fittings (0.5 -inch ID x 0.75- inch OD fittings), a 13 mm flexible water tube, and the Coolant1000 Blue cooling solution, which comes in (you guessed it) a blue coloring for the liquid. The rest are a small myriad of accessories, which include an Intel and AMD mounting and backplating kit, a 24-pin ATX bridge tool, and Thermaltake's own thermal grease.

The company didn't put a price or release date on the entire kit, but it shouldn't take too long until we see it on the Thermaltake site. There is one other kit available, the Pacific RL240 Water Cooling Kit that costs $299.99. This new bundle seems to be a smaller version, so the Pacific RL140 kit shouldn't cost that much (hopefully).

    I currently have a closed loop Thermaltake cooler (Water 2.0 Pro). If the price on this is low enough, I may have to get one and a new case to put it in just because I like the idea of reservoir & blue coolant.

    This kit is ridiculously priced. I do not care about the so-called asthetics of the cooler, rather I focus on performance per dollar. I don't see this as better performer, nor is it worth paying a premium for colored coolant.

    The price listed in the article is for a 240MM Kit, not the 140MM they are talking about in the article. I'm sure companies like Swiftech still offer better cooling solutions then Thermaltake in the particular market segment, just saying though.

    I have to agree. You can build a better solution for a lot less money, even if you use multiple manufacturers.

    And one would buy this over the Swiftech 240-X ($150) and a $35 reservoir + 2 fittings ($8) because ?
