Conclusions and Final Thoughts
In this day and age, computers are becoming more and more advanced and the cooling products we need have to do the same thing. The days of small air coolers are behind us, and Thermaltake has recognized that and brought forth a worthy solution with the Water 2.0 series. Without being large and loud this cooler is able to come within just a few degrees Celsius of one of their largest air coolers to date.
The low profile design on the Water 2.0 series means that you’re able to install the cooler in virtually any environment without fear of having to accommodate for large heat spreaders on RAM. In my case this is exceptional, as I use Corsair Vengeance sticks which have some pretty hefty heat spreaders on them.
I think it’s safe to say that Thermaltake has made a solid product, which is more than capable of handling the heat of modern processors. Coming in with a price point of $68.50 shipped, it puts the Water 2.0 Performer right in the middle of the price range of the higher end cooler market. With this being the base cooler I’m eager to see what the potential is for their highest tier cooler, the Water 2.0 Extreme, which is set to be released sometime in July.
Legit Bottom Line: The Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer takes the all-in-one water cooling solution and delivers with exceptional cooling, ease of install, and excellent build quality.
