All-in-one liquid coolers are nothing new to today’s enthusiasts, but if you’re “experienced” enough to remember the hardware market as it was back in 2004, then you may remember the launch of the original BigWater kit from Thermaltake. A lot has changed since then and today the Taiwanese-based hardware giant has announced the latest in the BigWater lineup, the 760 Pro.
Like other 760 models, this one also requires two free 5.25″ bays in order to be installed in a system. It features a 120mm radiator that has been beefed up to a thickness of 33mm, a high flow P500 pump capable of moving 500 litres of fluid per hour, a nickle-plated copper block that has been polished to a mirror shine, an external liquid level indicator and a controllable LED fan. Those of you running older systems will be happy to know that Intel LGA775/AMD AM2 sockets and newer are supported.
Thermaltake also notes that this unit is powerful enough so that users are able to add additional components to the loop such as a chipset, GPU or memory – if they have the extra hardware to do so.
No word on pricing as of yet, but seeing how the BigWater 760 Plus is selling for ~$141 US, I’d say that a launch price of somewhere in this range isn’t unreasonable.
