Thermaltake Announces WATER2.0 Liquid Cooling Systems

If you’re looking for the best way to both cool your PC and keep it quiet, then there’s nothing more appealing than a liquid cooling system. If you’re not afraid to really get your hands dirty, then you’ll not mind a complete DIY kit that has you running hoses and adding the liquid yourself. However, if you’re afraid of accidentally destroying your rig in the process, then a self-contained unit might suit you better.

Thermaltake has just announced the launch of their WATER2.0 CPU liquid cooling systems. There are going to be a total of three versions, but only the Performer and Pro are being released right now. Each is a self-contained unit which needs very little work to be installed. Just make sure you have the right bracket for your CPU, install the corresponding backplate, and mount. You’ll never even see the liquid, as the unit is completely sealed from the start.

So what’s the difference between the Performer and Pro versions? Really, the only thing you’ll notice is that the radiator is thicker (49mm vs 25mm), giving it more surface area to work with. Both come with a pair of 120mm PWM fans to keep things cool and quiet. As for price, you’re looking at $70 for the Performer, and $100 for the Pro.
