PRODUCT PICTORIAL & WALKTHROUGH
Tucked away beneath the tank is a 12V pump rated at 72 LPH (19 GPH). The pump is small and is still reasonably quiet.
From the left, you can see the clever design of the tank and attached bracket.
The pump is powered from a 3-pin motherboard header, while the 120mm fan gets its power via a 4-pin connector from the PSU. The fan cable is sleeved and of generous length, while the pump cable is rather short and un-sleeved.
Here's everything you'll need to install and control the Silent Water. From the top down, you get the speed controller for the radiator fan, some adhesive hook-and-loop tapes for mounting the unit to the case floor, and the mounting brackets and associated protective items. Also included is some thermal compound, a 3-piece bracket for Intel 775 sockets with clearance issues, two bags of screws and associated hardware and a 3- to 4-pin adapter, with RPM monitoring capability, for the pump.
