Thermaltake Water 3.0 – All-In-One Liquid Cooling System Evolves
Posted on April 30, 2013 8:10 AM by J.D. Kane
Thermaltake has announced its new Water 3.0 All-In-One LCS (Liquid Cooling System). It is an upgrade over the Water 2.0 system, which was introduced in mid-2012.
As with the previous iteration of LCS, Water 3.0 is available in three versions: Performer, Pro, and Extreme. All three have the same basic universal water pump + base plate combo unit; where they all differ are in the size of the radiators, which then directly impact each model’s cooling capacity.
The Performer has a 27mm thick 120mm radiator. The Pro has a 49mm thick 120mm radiator. Both are designed for use in PC chassis that can only fit a single 120mm radiator.
The Extreme version, though, has a 240mm radiator that is 27mm thick.
All versions of the Water3.0 LCS come with a pair of Thermaltake’s own 120mm x 25mm PWM fans. They are rated for 2000 RPMs max, 99CFM, and only 20dBA. The Pro and Performer versions have their fans configured in push-pull, while the Extreme has its pair of fans set to a push configuration.
Thermaltake has not provided pricing or precise availability details at the time of writing.
