Thermaltake this week added a new self-contained liquid cooling kit to its lineup, the Water 3.0 Ultimate. It sports a large 360mm radiator with three "Triple Curve" 120 PWM fans that spin at 1,000 RPM to 2,000 RPM. If that's not enough for your overclocking efforts, Thermaltake says the large radiator supports three additional fans, bringing the potential total to half a dozen 120mm fans.
This is Thermaltake's flagship all-in-one LCS, which stands above the Water 3.0 Extreme, Performance, and Pro kits. To give an example of its performance, Thermaltake compared the temps of its Ultimate kit versus Intel's stock cooler for a Core i7 975 running at 4GHz and 100 percent load. Intel's cooler maintained 94C, while the Ultimate held steady at 69C in Thermaltake's own tests.
Unfortunately, Thermaltake only provides a few specifics about the kit -- the water block consists of a copper base plate, while the rubber tubing going to and from it measures 326mm. The pump's motor speed is 3600 RPM, give or take 150 RPM.
No word yet on when the Water 3.0 Ultimate will be available or for how much.
