CONCLUSIONS AND AFTERTHOUGHTS



The Silent Water all in one liquid cooling system from Thermaltake is an interesting product in some respects. The small size and mounting options make it compatible with many cases without modification. It offers the novice watercooler a complete, easily installed solution that has fairly wide compatibility at a very reasonable cost. Careful shopping can get you a Silent Water kit for around $60 US, about what you'd pay for some high-end air-cooling solutions. Its performance is on par with air-cooling as well, but one shouldn't expect dramatic results. The Silent Water's appeal comes from its small footprint, ease of installation and low cost. Its cooling performance won't impress most watercooling enthusiasts, but they are clearly not the target market here. It can be quiet, but it's loud when running at top speed. All in one watercooling for $60 is the big draw for the Silent Water, not its cooling performance.

 

Pros:


- Easy installation
- Inexpensive (as water-cooling goes)
- Clever, compact design
- Fairly wide compatibility
- Good cooling
- Fully assembled


Cons:


- Mediocre cooling performance (as water-cooling goes)
- Radiator fan is loud at maximum speed
- AM2 socket not supported
- Manual needs improvement
