Thermaltake Silent Water Cooling Kit

Manufacturer: Thermaltake Technology
Supplied by: Thermaltake Technology
Price: $118

Introduction

Water cooling has come a long way since the big names started mass producing all-in-one kits a few years back.  In that time, these kits have broken up into two categories; that of silent operation and that of high performance (usually anything but silent).  Whichever category a kit may be classified as, installation has greatly simplified but eluded the simplicity that most air cooling solutions have.  Thermaltake’s new Silent Water Kit looks to aim directly at this mark.  Aside from its being an all-in-one kit, the Silent Water is ready to install straight from the box.  Ready to install as in, mount it and fire up your machine.  The unit is already pre-filled with coolant which should tell you something.  The central unit is based around a variable rate 120mm fan to provide high end cooling while giving the end user an option of turning the fan speed down for near silent operation.  Today, the people at Thermaltake have hooked us up for a look at their newest (and simplest) water cooling system they have produced to date.  Let’s look at the specs.

Specifications:

  • Application: Intel P4 Socket 775, P4 Socket 478, AMD K8, AMD K7

  • Radiator observed dimensions: 120 x 168 x 38 mm

  • Cooling fan: Single 120mm variable rate fan

  • Fan Speed: 1300 ~ 2400 RPM

  • Fan Sound Level: 17 ~ 21 dBA

  • Compact DC 12V Water Pump (72 L/hr)

  • Water block observed dimensions: 15 x 60 x 62 mm

  • Water block construction: Copper

  • Water block observed weight: 383 gms

What you get

The Silent Water kit's central piece is of course the Silent Water but we are going to save that for just a second.  Included in the package with it are mounting brackets for AMD K7 and K8 as well as Intel P4 478 and LGA775.  In addition to this is a fan speed controller, four strips of Velcro (two his / two hers), a three to four-pin power adapter, blister pack of generic thermal grease, manual and the expected hardware mounting screws and nuts.
