PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS & COMPOSITION



The BigWater kit from Thermaltake consists of three major components. The 12V pump that circulates the fluid, the CPU waterblock which allows heat energy to be absorbed by the fluid, and the radiator/fan unit which removes heat from the fluid before it is circulated back through the pump.



The pump will circulate up to 120 liters (26 US gallons) of fluid per hour at a whisper-quiet 20 decibels. This may seem anemic to the maximum effort watercooling folks, but as we’ll see later, the BigWater kit does a pretty good job. No head or pressure data is provided. A blue LED illuminates the pump reservoir, as we’ll see after installation.



The waterblock is copper with an acrylic cap and weighs in at a hefty one pound. The cap incorporates a blue LED to add some visual interest. We’ll take a closer look a little later.



As you can see from the above specifications, the radiator/fan unit is fairly large and quiet. Although the radiator material is listed as aluminum, the coolant tubes are actually copper, while the cooling fins are aluminum. More on this later.



The BigWater kit arrived in a heavy cardboard box with a handy carry handle. Thermaltake products are always packaged with the highest quality materials and this kit is no exception.
