Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate AIO CPU Cooler
As we mentioned, the head unit is entirely black, and being an Asetek unit, we have tabs all the way around the edge. We also see a large logo, the Thermaltake name and slogan, as well as the Water 3.0 naming on there, but sadly there are no LED lights, if that is your thing.
In this design we have both of the swivel fittings close together to allow the head unit enough flexibility not to kink the tubing. We also find the 3-pin fan lead exits the head unit close to the hoses, so it helps keep things tidy looking once installed.
The copper cold plate comes protected under a clear plastic cap that also helps to keep debris out of the pre-applied thermal paste. Of course, we have to remove this to replace the TIM with our standard, and to get a better look at its finish.
With the paste now removed, we see defined circular milling marks that conclude in the center with just the slightest indented dimple. This base is in no way flat. It stands taller in the center, and we all know convex bases offer more mounting pressure as well as making for better mating to the CPU.
Between the head unit and the radiator, we find this kit to have twelve inches of tubing, but we also found that the 3-pin lead form the head unit is eleven inches in length, so there will be no issues finding a fan header within reach.
As we see with how the tubing was attached at the head unit, it is again stretched over the barbs, and has plastic sleeves applied just in case here too. We can also see from this angle that even while 393mm in length, Thermaltake built this on a standard 27mm thick radiator.
Moving way back, we can now see the radiator as air would flow through it. We are still dealing with a high FPI design, just that this time there is much more radiator than we are used to seeing in an AIO. Outside of that, it still offers offset tubes so screws don't puncture them and plain sides.
