PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
The Silent Water has wide compatibility, but the newer AM2 socket is not supported. Its unique configuration has the radiator, fan, pump and reservoir all contained in a single unit. The rubber tubing comes pre-installed and the system is full of coolant and ready to use right out of the box. We'll go over the individual components in more detail later on.
The box has nice graphics of the Silent Water along with specifications and features. Inside, you get the cooling unit with the CPU block's base protected by plastic sheeting. Thermaltake's familiar “H” brackets and hardware are complimented with thermal paste, Velcro mounting tapes and a fan speed controller. The manual, while technically complete, has poor photos and is difficult to understand in places.
