Thermaltake's Bigwater series of water cooling systems has just seen the addition of a new top dog model known as the Bigwater 780.

Codenamed CL-W0186, this system comes with what looks to be a decent pump in comparison to what we've seen used in prior kits; the P500 ceramic bearing pump with copper internal housing and a max circulation capacity of 500L/hr.

A 3-bay front drive unit slides into the front of your case and houses a 530 c.c coolant tank. A flow meter at the front of it allows the user to easily monitor the circulation of coolant to help ensure everything's working properly.

The waterblock is an all-copper design and supports all sockets (bar the new Core i7) including AMD 939/940/AM2/AM2+ as well as Intel 478 and LGA775.

There looks to be not one, but two radiators used; one housed in the 3U drive bay next to the water tank, and another seperate radiator that can be mounted internally or externally to the case, both cooled by 120mm PWM fans operating at 800~2500RPM.

We're not yet sure of when this unit reaches stores, nor its associated pricing. But it shouldn't be too long before this info comes to light.


You can read up on more detail covering the new Bigwater 780 liquid cooling system at the official product page here folks.


Pump can be seen as the heart of your liquid cooling system; if the pump does not have enough power, coolant will then be unable to reach all parts of your cooling loop. However, Bigwater 780 comes with the P500 pump, reaching maximum circulation capacity to 500L/hr; this will allows the integrated cooling process of CPU, GPU, Memory, HDD and even chipsets, satisfying the future upgrading demands of liquid cooling players. And coming to the most important part of cooling performance, with the double racing car level radiators provide maximum cooling surface for the high end users.
