NOT Mountain Dew
Moving on to the water cooling rig now; Thermaltake has kindly supplied us with their massive new up and coming Bigwater 780 which is a pre-built setup that will cool some of the most heat crazy rigs.
In the box we find that we get a 3x5.12" bay reservoir/pump/radiator arrangement which forms the first half of the system.
Alongside that is a separate 120mm radiator and fan assembly that can be mounted pretty much anywhere in your case where there are screw holes.
Also included is neon green tubing and UV reactive fluorescent dyed water with special additives to help heat transfer and prevent corrosion of the copper.
Thermaltake were also kind enough to supply a VGA water-block for the review so that all aspects of the system could be cooled.
The 3-bay water-cooling assembly has quick connect style adapters on it so that the unit can easily be migrated to and from different cases/systems.
The CPU water block provided is an all-copper affair with a polished copper bottom. The fittings for the pipe are brazed into the head of the block, so if you want to switch the diameter of tubing you will need to buy a new block. But to be honest, you won't ever need to do that.
There are mounting abilities for every type of socket on the market at the moment. So there is no worry about compatibility.
Likewise with the VGA block, it's an all-copper brazed fittings affair, universally mountable to fit almost every NVIDIA and ATI card out there. It comes with two types of hose adapter fittings so it supports the tubing supplied with the Bigwater 780 and smaller diameter tubes.
