Water cooling, no longer the black art or taboo form of cooling PC components where only the James Dean of computer users dared go. Over time water cooling evolved from clumsy homemade pieces made from parts purchased at auto part and home improvement stores to commercial, mass produced components as refined as motherboards and processors.
Thermaltake played a large role in the evolution of the water-cooling phenomenon. With their manufacturing capability and R&D teams, the company has made improvements in the quality of components used and the level of skill needed to install a unit successfully.
Thermaltake's best selling water cooling kits, the BigWater Series are well known for their ease of use and relative low cost when compared to several of the "Pro" kits by companies like Swiftech and Danger Den. Thermaltake has changed the formula to manufacture a pro level kit of their own, and the series is called ProWater. Today we are going to look at the ProWater 850i, a component based kit that is still an all-in-one solution but uses traditional parts found only on more expensive kits.
