Watercooling is something that I got into a couple of years ago, so when I heard a Thermaltake Bigwater 760 Plus was coming my way I was pretty excited. This unit allows you to get your feet wet into the world of watercooling.
With the big craze of self-contained watercooling units these days, Thermaltake offers a kit for the more adventerous type. You get the full watercooling experience of connecting tubing and filling the water yourself to fit whatever case you may use. What is great is that this loop allows you to get your feet wet and see how you like watercooling. You can then upgrade the radiator, pump,block,etc if you feel that performance is not up to par for your latest upgrade.
Thermaltake as a company has been around for quite a few years, in case you have not heard of them here is some information about the company:
We'll be testing the Bigwater 760 Plus using an Intel Core i7 3930K, a Gigabyte X79-UD3 Motherboard, both are LGA 2011 of course as well as 16gb of Crucial Ballistix Memory, and an Antec Quattro 1200w PSU.
For overclocked tests the processor was overclocked to 4.5ghz at 1.41v.
The Bigwater 760 Plus will be compared to the previously reviewed Noctua NH-D14 SE2011, as well as my custom watercooling loop. This loop consists of a XSPC Raystorm waterblock, Swiftech 355 pump, XSPC restop, Thermochill PA120.3 Radiator, and three San Ace fans.
