PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



The unit itself is compact and about the same thickness as two optical drives stacked on top of one another, hence it will take up two 5 ¼ drive bays when installed. The front bezel design is nothing flashy and has a steel mesh material at the top for ventilation.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Looking at the top shows a 120mm blue LED fan to cool the radiator. Removing the fan…



…reveals the radiator underneath. This is what Thermaltake calls a Motorsports radiator. It utilizes dimpled tubes inside to create a vortex and swirl the coolant within the radiator better than a traditional design.



Moving around to the back of the unit is the empty coolant reservoir with some condensation already built up inside. High and low coolant levels are clearly marked. A twist off cap is at the top and it is secured on there very tightly.



The pump is located next to the coolant reservoir. It will move 500 liters an hour and according to Thermaltake it can handle additional liquid cooling components (such as a video card waterblock) as well as the original, although at the cost of efficiency and overall effectiveness. They recommend a second motor can be added in such cases.



Inlet and outlet tubes with shutoff valves come out the back of the unit. These valves have been used on other Thermaltake LCS's as well and come in handy if the system has to be relocated or removed.
