  • Excerpt: Thermaltake continues to make it easier and easier to get into liquid cooling with the Bigwater 760i. Instead of crowding other areas of the case, this system utilizes two unused 5 ¼ drive bays to house the radiator, pump and reservoir, keeping it out of the way of other hardware.

Thermaltake BigWater 760i review

  • Conclusion: Despite the factory defect that caused about $175 in damage to my machine, I actually think that this is a pretty decent liquid cooling device. If you get one without the leaky fitting (or if you take precautions against leaks somehow), you'll find the Thermaltake BigWater 760i to be affordable and effective. Realistically the failure I experienced is possible with all manner of liquid cooling apparatus, and it was not a permanent failure.

  • Conclusion: The Bigwater from 760i is one of those kits that has a lot of potential but doesn’t realize that potential at the end of the day. For starters, why would I want to keep opening up my case to adjust the fan speed? I also don’t agree with the placement of the quick disconnect fittings or the lengthy installation process. The performance is mediocre and the price is expensive for the amount of cooling you receive.

Thermaltake Bigwater 760i Watercooling System

  • Summary: I'll be comparing the performance of the Thermaltake Bigwater 760i to the stock AMD heatsink at stock speeds and various levels of overclock. Stock coolers are usually adequate at keeping temps under control at stock speed and voltage, however it's when increasing speed and especially voltage that much higher demands are placed on CPU cooling. To monitor CPU temperature I used a utility called CoreTemp.

  • Summary: The Thermaltake Bigwater 760i is decent alternative to other inexpensive watercooling units. At about $150 USD it is about as affordable as a Swiftech or Danger Den basic kit and probably performs on a similar level. The entire unit is simple to install, though the process is rather lengthy.
  • Pros: Affordable watercooling solution, Decent performance for its price range, Simple to install, Everything included in the kit to get started, Compact, Can be used with other blocks from Thermaltake
  • Cons: Fan too loud, Front bezel on the test unit did not line up correctly, Control knob mounted inside the case

Thermaltake BigWater 760i

  • Summary: The BigWater 760i appears to be a very solid product and after a month of non-stop usage appears to have none of the weaknesses that plagued previous models. Thermaltake has picked up the pieces with the BigWater 760i and in doing so have developed a water-cooling product that we highly recommend. There is very little not to like about the BigWater 760i, it is affordable, easy to install, easy to maintain and the performance is very good.

  • Summary: Das BigWater760i hat bei uns einen gemischten Eindruck hinterlassen. Für unerfahren Anwender, welche sich eine Wasserkühlung zulegen wollen, ist solch ein All-In-One System wohl die ideale Lösung, gerade weil Thermaltake viel Wert auf die Dokumentation und die Einfachheit der Bedienung gelegt hat. Jedoch konnte uns das BigWater760i nicht ganz bei den wichtigen Punkten, welche für eine Wasserkühlung sprechen, überzeugen.
  • Pros: sehr reichhaltiger Lieferumfang, saubere Verarbeitung, kompakte Bauweise, gute Bedienungsanleitung und beiliegendes Serviceheft, einfache Installation
  • Cons: Lautstärke, Leistung im Midi-Tower, Einbautiefe

Thermaltake BigWater 760i

7 September 2012
  • Excerpt: De un tiempo a esta parte se están popularizando en el mercado los kits de refrigeración líquida destinados al mercado de usuarios con poca experiencia montando este tipo de sistemas pero que quieren beneficiarse de las ventajas que aportan las refrigeraciones por agua. En la gran mayoría de los casos, estos kits suelen ser relativamente baratos pero sus resultados y sonoridad suelen dejar mucho que desear, debido en gran medida a que la elección de los componentes no...
  • Pros: Contras, Ruidoso a altas rpm., Se necesita un ventilador a parte para refrigerar los mosfets de la placa base., Ocupa bastante espacio en el frontal de la caja., El líquido refrigerante es glicol de etileno, que es venenoso.
  • Cons: El Thermaltake 760i se nos presenta en una caja de buen tamaño, que trae un asa de plástico muy práctica para su transporte y que tiene fotos por ambos lados y en la que se detallan las principales características del sistema., La unidad es un sistema 2U (dos unidades de altura), diseñada para ser instalada en y por el frontal de la caja. Aunque las ventajas de este tipo de instalación son obvias, presenta una desventaja: El calor que sale del radiador se vierte en el...

  • Conclusion: Los modelos anteriores de refrigeraci�n l�quida de Thermaltake eran productos tradicionales donde hab�a que construir todo el circuito; si embargo, el modelo que hoy tenemos para an�lisis basa su punto fuerte en la facilidad en el montaje y en las buenas prestaciones. Veremos si al final lo que promete Thermaltake se cumple.
