Just as you can configure and build your PC from scratch, cooling enthusiasts can also piece together a custom liquid cooling solution, provided they have the requisite cash and experience. For everyone else, self-contained liquid cooling systems are the next best thing, offering similar benefits but for less money and far less risk. Enter Thermaltake, one of the more active players in the LCS market, which just announced a trio of new cooling products.
Sitting at the top of Thermaltake's LCS totem pole is its new Water 3.0 Extreme, The Extreme uses a specially designed 240mm large surface radiator with two (or more) 120mm double curve fans to dissipate heat and keep things cool. It has a full copper plate base and comes with fan control software to monitor and customize a range of parameters, including liquid temperature, CPU temperature, fan speed, and pump speed.
Sitting one notch below is the Water 3.0 Pro. It uses a double-thick radiator (49mm) cooled by up to two 120mm fans and is aimed at users who don't have enough space to install a Water 3.0 Extreme but still want high-end cooling performance.
Finally, the Water 3.0 Performer is the same as the Pro, only smaller (the radiator measures 27mm). Thermaltake says it's a good solution for first-timers new to liquid cooling.
