Way back in 2004 Thermaltake released their original water
cooling kits, with the Bigwater series. Today Thermaltake has brought us their new
Water 2.0 Performer, the first in their new series of all-in-one water cooling
kits. With a market that already has a few all in one cooler’s available; we’ll
see what Thermaltake has changed to make their Water 2.0 series stand out.
The Water 2.0 Performer is a single 120mm radiator liquid
cooling system. The maintenance free design means you just install it and leave
it alone. You never have to change the liquid or hassle with any of the stuff
that users who run custom water cooling loops have to deal with. This makes
this type of cooler extremely appealing to those who want to try water cooling
out without having to completely assemble an entire loop. With the Water 2.0
Performer being priced at $68.50 shipped at the time of this article,
it’s definitely aimed at the person who wants water cooling performance without
the hefty price of a full water cooling loop.
The Water 2.0 Performer comes complete with two 120mm Thermaltake fans to work together in a
push/pull configuration. The way this works is one fan pushes cool air over the
fins of the radiator, and the other one pulls the warm air out the back of the
case after it’s been used to cool the liquid inside the radiator. These fans
are PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) and rotate at speeds of 1,200-2,000RPM and can
move up to 81.32CFM at just 27.36dBA.
