Summary: I originally ran a Corsiar H60 before it failed and I ended up buying this one. I read the sparse reviews on this and other websites and all of them seem to say its a good buy. When I took it out of the box, it looked cheaper than I expected, the only thing I didn't like was that the fan was NOT replaceable (Its bright blue LED and sounds like a jet engine on low power).
Summary: Bought this to replace the loud stock cpu fan. The fan on this is louder. Even with the case closed this thing is LOUD. Closer to 50 dB on the slowest setting and worse on the highest speed setting. Much above what is started in the specifications. I'm replacing the big water fan with a quieter one. The pump is quiet. Seems to keep the processor cool.
Summary: I had this cooler for some time now, I'm using it on a (FX 8350) processor and it is doing well for the size of the radiator,it stay around 14 Celsius or 57.2 Fahrenheit on high when I'm playing Skyrim with the highest graphics,the only things is that the control knob works more like a 3 way switch and only has 3 speeds, the fan for the cooler is on the bottom and if you only have 3 bays the fan only as a small place to get air, but i fix that problem by making duct work...
Conclusion: Thermaltake’s BigWater 760i is an intriguing product on a number of levels. It offers the simplicity of external water-cooling systems, but in a design that can be internally mounted. I personally know more than one enthusiast with extra 5.25″ drive bays to spare, and Thermaltake’s bay-mounted concept provides a way to make good use of that space, instead of letting it go to waste.
