Default thermaltake water 2.0

has anyone used this AND the corsair h100?

please let me know seeing as the h100 makes a noise im not fond of, its not the massive grinding but its loud enough to make me consider something else


barely any videos of the water 2.0 in use, but dozens of videos with the h100 noise lol..

Have you looked into the H100i? (the new version of H100)

I haven't but since it comes with 2000rpm fans I can tell you it will not be quiet.

Macgruber if you have 140mm fan slots on the rear or the top, take a look at H90. It's a lot quieter than H100 and performs about the same.

if you can wait a bit, take a look at the swiftech offering that's about to be released, a little bit more expensive than other AIOs but it can be easily expanded if you want to.

Not trying to be a d*ck but with all the threads you make, why didn't you ask about H100 noise before buying? A 40$ Thermalright Macho can easily keep that cpu cool at 4.5Ghz with about half the noise.

In your current situation I would get the Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition fans. Get a 3-pin y-splitter too and control the speed using Speedfan.

it will not perform about the same, dimensions provide common sense of statistic heat reduction.

and the corsair h100 comes with 2500rpm fans, are you serious?

not to be a d*ck, but i dont sit around waiting for kids like you to give me $0.02, when i need it i ask for it









thanks but it seems noone here has a thermaltake water 2.0 and i will just buy it to try it

the store i bought it from doesnt do refunds for cash on open computer products, so id need to pick between the thermal or corsair

and with the thousands of issues on corsair products, im not going to wait for mine to get worse,i can hear the pump, and when i stick my ear on the case i hear it grinding, its not THAT loud enough to care like the ones in the video, but i care because i paid for it i need to get what i paid for and the h100 isnt it

The H100 - there was a big to do about the pump in them making noise, and the fix involved giving it just an ever so slightly lower voltage. Maybe just an inline resistor, I don't remember. Supposedly cavitation noise due to power supplies putting out a little higher voltage than intended, and not anything mechanical ie actual grinding. A little slower pump speed solved it. I guess if you can just swap it w/ something else for free, cool. FYI though if it doesn't end up being easy to do that.

Yes ofcourse I'm serious, no 2000rpm fan is going to be quiet. The fact the H100 has 2500rpm fans doesn't change that.

But I've had enough of you. I need to try, to you it comes just natural.

yeah man its on sale for 80$ at the store but i payed 130$ for it

i did not pay 130$ to have to do electric work that they blame my power supply on. i hate when companies dont take responsibility

Screw corsair im returning their h100 and returning the coolermaster 932 and buying
a thermaltake level gt LCS which comes with a REAL water cooling system and a even nicer case


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133193


to be honest i spent like 180 on the case and 130 on the h100 thats 310. i have no problem dishing out another 50 for a system that wont be making noise from its pump and ill actually have a water cooling system which i can expand as an investment instead of a 130$ CPU cooling only solution!

now i only wonder if the LCS case's water pump will be silent or trashy like a h100, i expect it to be better than a crappy prebuilt system but who knows :/

another return, another purchase lol

thanks but ive also read some reviews,some people are lucky some people arent

if you receive a defective product, and you complain about it on the internet, but you dont return it for your money back, i dont think you should be reviewing stuff

hopefully i get lucky, to be realistic, people complain about the bigwater 850 and then act like a 100$ kit bought seperately will out perform it, so iguess i have to wait to find out

thanks though, but i hate trying to rule something bad because 3 people out of tens of thousands had a bad experience


McDonalds is also bad, one time my burger wasnt cooked, id stay away from it <---- i dont deem mcdonalds bad because one person complains about it

Just remember people warned you. You forgot to mention your restocking fees and return shipping on your none defective items that will add to your costs.

Gl on your new build thou, hopefully we only read the results in one thread and not six. 8-)

honestly considering returning this case unopened for the full refund, buying the Level 10 gt and buying a kit from XSPC for water cooling

theres no restocking fees for unopened items unfortunately at this store and if the order isnt shipped out tomorrow i can still cancel it which i might

Btw, noone warned me, posting 2 days after i make a post with an opinion based off other opinions doesnt really help,

i dont sit here and say you warned me? please post your computer, level of education, and youre current employer, so its a double standard, everyone hates, everyone has opinions, but noone likes to back them up

cancelled my order. 48hours to cancel, 3-5days to receive my money back

At least i know i wont be paying 369$+22$tax for a 180$case and a 140$big water system

i can pay 180$ for the case and get a XSPC system

ill save 100$, because i dont think big fancy led lights and a pre built crap water cooling system is worth the 220$ i payed on top of the 180$ barebone case...

LVL 10 GT LCs - 369$
case - 179$
big water 850 - 140$

even buying the two seperate i save money, guess ill HAVE to wait, at least ill make a decent purchase on a case+water cooling, no more rushing orders and overpaying for these trash scam setups

Sometimes taking time to smell the flowers is a good thing....Impulse buys are most of the time regrettable.

Is this the kit your looking at? http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16...l=g30c321s1310

i hooked up my regular pc to a crap old case, set every setting to default and now i can research things some more lol, the other one was a snail in a box


i checked history on other pc and it auto clears so i couldnt pull it up

i thought i found a kit like that for 129$ XSPC but not sure model or type

im guessing thats what ill be looking towards, my understanding is, that kit would cost less than buying every piece of it seperately eh?

edit- not sure how the high/medium/low speed fans work on the RS/EX/RX... im guessing i cant adjust my speeds of fans? i know every system has pros and cons but, it doesnt sound good if im buying a preset fan speed and i have to go with either loud rpm fans or low rpm fans.... not a good look

I wouldn't recommend the XSPC kit as it would require a bit of knowledge in watercooling and it isn't pre-installed out of the box. If you're uncertain about self assembly, I'd suggest sticking to AIO's. Swiftech offers a decent AIO that comes close to a custom loop.

I consider air cooling and AIOs to be install and forget solutions, they're proven to work almost flawlessly out of the factory. Watercooling, even those that are made simpler like the XSPC kits requires attention to detail when installing and periodical maintenance.

swiftech is also building the whole thing in house including the pump, unlike the corsair/antec/nzxt which are just rebranded units from around 2 different manufacturers.

according to swiftech, it should be available at the end of the month.

they have some vids on this page:

i may not know how to configure bios settings on an overclock, but installing a watercooling system isnt hard or difficult

i can replace a car radiator, and internal engine parts, so a water cooling system will be the least of my worries

thanks for your opinion

with the types of fans, placing of fans, mesh fan gaurds to clean, removable drive bays, swing out door i find it to be amazing case

Which case do you have? i enjoy peoples opinions, but i prefer opinions that cant be corrected with factual information.

the ferrari enzo is a horrible car (<-- lol)

thanks man, but i would of kept the h100 if it was the case

im buying a water cooling kit so i can expand with a gpu block in the future or upgrade the pump itself and maybe go double radiator

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16...ead-Water.html + high speed fans would be ideal right?

since its made with a bigger radiator to support low speed fans ? if my research is correct

or if i get the RS it will have a smaller radiator and high speed fans, so if i do get the RX + high speed fans ill be increasing the cooling?

going to have to research if that radiator will fit comfy in the Level 10 GT case

i havent found a case with as many features as the L10GT that i like, fan filters alone and 200mm fans arent the cheapest, and im stuck with credit from tigerdirect so i dont have the largest variety
