Thermaltake unveils BigWater, water cooling system

Thermaltake Technology unveiled its water cooling system codenamed BigWater (P/N:CL-W0005) that succeeds the Aquarius series. According to the company, the development was especially focused around safety. It´s not a secret that reliability factor often prevents potential users from purchasing water cooling.

In the first place, the company focused on drain pipes. BigWater features 120 liters/hour pump that powers from 12V and doesn´t require additional power sources. The pump works at 20 dB noise level and has LEDs indicating its state.

Heatsink is another critical element. BigWater utilizes heatsink that slightly resembles those used in cars. Pipes with liquid pass through several aluminium fins. The 12cm fan has 8.6 CFM ~ 93.7 CFM performance at 17-21 dBA noise.
