The Big Water doesn’t stop its impersonations there either. The block features a copper base and an acrylic top with a hint of blue LED. This water block is very similar to some very popular water blocks. The unit’s copper base and acrylic top are held together by 4 hex screws, with an O-ring in between, to allow cleaning but eliminate error; it features a water channel that illuminates green with the provided fluid and looks fantastic with the furnished LED.
The radiator in Big Water is the similar to the one used in some previous kits produced by Tt with a few minor differences. It is designed to install in nearly every system, but mine… that will be addressed later though. The radiator has copper water channels and aluminum fins to aid heat transfer and is already fitted with a 120mm fan and a neat fan guard to keep your fingers from getting bloody. The fan spins at up to 2400 RPMs and pushes 93.7 CFM. There is also a fan speed controller included to help eliminate some noise. I usually run these fans at full speed anyway, so these things don’t usually get installed in my rigs.
Included in the packaging is an assortment of installation hardware, tubing, instructions, and plenty of coolant. The tubing included is of the 3/8 ID flavor and is reasonably sturdy. Most of the kits on the market feature this type of tubing and replacing it, should you screw up, is as simple as going online to your favorite enthusiast hardware site and ordering some. The tubing Tt provided with their Silent Water systems was rubbery and it was necessary to use provided springs to keep it from kinking and thankfully it has been upgraded for this system. I personally prefer clear tubing instead of green UV reactive because clear tubing can be had at Home Depot, Lowes, and most other hardware stores for much less moolah. To ease your mind a bit, Thermaltake provides enough tubing to install the Big Water twice (in most systems) discarding the first iteration of tubing.
