Conclusion

It is a little hard to figure out who might be the potential user of a system like Thermaltake Big Water 760i we have just discussed. These could be the lucky owners of large system cases, like Thermaltake Armor with meshed top ensuring free airflow to the fan on top of the main block radiator. Although they must not care about the noise, because the pump of this system is quite loud. What are the advantages of this system? Acceptable price compared with the rest of the liquid-cooling solutions out there and extremely simple assembly procedure. Universal design and compact size are also great advantages, although they are quite typical of almost all contemporary cooling solutions including a big number of liquid-cooling systems. But don’t get the impression that I didn’t like this system at all. This is not true. Any product deserves a market and will eventually find it, although Thermaltake Big water 760i will hardly become an overclocker’s choice.

Highs:

  • Low cost for a liquid-cooling system;
  • Compact design that allows the entire system to fit inside a PC case;
  • Universal design (supports all contemporary platforms);
  • Extremely easy assembly and installation;
  • Simple connection/disconnection and moving around of the liquid-cooling system;
  • Modding fan highlighting and UV-glowing tubes.

Lows:

  • Low efficiency for overclocked processors;
  • Noisy pump;
  • Noisy fan at high rotation speed;
  • Inconvenient fan rotation speed adjustment;
  • No cooling of the area around the processor socket.
