It used to be that water cooling was left for the very hardcore overclockers. The thought of liquid running through a computer case scared many computer enthusiasts, including me. Thanks to companies like Thermaltake, water cooling is becoming much more mainstream. We are going to take a look at one water cooling solution offered by Thermaltake, the Big Water 12cm Liquid Cooling System.
Thermaltake has been in business since 1999 and offers a variety of computer products including computer cases, power supplies, cooling products and accessories. In that short time they have built a good reputation for themselves for delivering quality products. So let's take a look at the Big Water Liquid Cooling System and see how it stacks up.
Thermaltake does a top notch job of packaging and shipping their products. The retail box is both sturdy and well packed, plus it is placed in a separate shipping box to protect it from any shipping damage.
