0
Posted September 24, 2014 by Kenny in Cooling

Overview

Hardware:
 
Manufacturer:
 
Price at time of Review: $139.99
 

WHAT WE LIKED:

Top Performer among CLC system tested, Great Simplistic Design, 50% Larger cooling surface compared to popular CLC units.
 

WHAT WE DISLIKED:

Fans Loud at Full Speed
 
BOTTOM LINE:
While Thermaltake did take a leap forward in providing the first 360mm radiator CLC system in the market, in our eyes... this is still an Asetek unit so there isn't any big innovation here. However, because its performance being the king of the hill on our list at the moment, Thermaltake has given other CLC makers a run for their money with a simplistic design and great overall performer.

Package and Contents

When it comes to the package, Thermaltake has always taken a solid approach with its marketing. While they don’t use anything flashy, the artwork on the front gets the point across. We have the basic information on the front such as product model and image of the cooler.

Package 1

At the rear of the package they go into a bit more detail and break down the features for good at a glance information. They also include an example of the cooling performance you should be expecting.

Package 2

Once inside, we find a tightly packed brown divider box. This holds the cooler, the fans and the other accessories for safe transport.

Package 3

While this unit does not include any software, we have the instruction manual for installation. These coolers are typically pretty easy to install, but it’s always a good idea to take a glance at the manual to make sure you have all the correct parts. This will help in case you realize later that you might be missing something.
