Thermaltake has really hit the mark with this kit. It has everything you need to easily make the switch from air to liquid cooling for your CPU. Although your case may need some modification to mount the radiator, Thermaltake has made it as easy as possible with several mounting options. - The Review

I just had to reply to your review and corect one point. in the cons U say that it's CPU cooling only. I have ordered this system and should be arriving with my shark case today and I also ordered the VGA waterblock and large flow meter to go along with this system and was assured by Thermaltake that all components including the VGA Block of their water systems are compatible and will work together. Though i didnt see anything for chipset cooling they assure me the VGA block works fine with the BigWater system. Well we'll see I guess hopefully they didnt decieve me. Other than that I was happy to hear it's a good system from all the reviews. I'll repost after I've had the experience of installing and let ya know how it went.

Hi kizdawg, welcome!

Sounds good, give us an update when you can!

I have been getting the e-mails from Thermaltake, and see they now have more blocks that people can add to this kit to make it a more complete system. Not sure they have one yet, but hopefully they will start selling all the pieces together!

After reading your review I purchased and installed the Big Water system in my new Alienware Area 51. Installation was easy and everything fits perfectly in the case. Quiet is the word, compared to the Intel boxed fan that was on my Intel P4 3.4 Prescott. It averages 10 degrees C cooler even with the fan on medium (QUIET). I can't imagine a better out of the box system. Thanks Thermaltake Wave

I can now easily OC to 4.029 GHz with no issues.

How easy is it to install these? Always been concerned about putting one in my system, and having a little leak. Are they pretty much designed to be totally leak proof?

That's exactly the reason I've not gone with a liquid cooled system...don't want to take the risk of me screwing it up and having a leak! If I did that, I KNOW my wife wouldn't let me build a new one, and I'm positive the warranty would be voided REAL fast... LOL

Oh well, maybe one day.
