Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme Liquid CPU Cooler Review
Ryan Martin+ / 2 years ago
Thermaltake are relative newcomers to the all in one liquid CPU cooler market, but like many other companies they have jumped straight onto the Asetek bandwagon to help get themselves established in this competitive market. The product we have here today, the Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme, is Thermaltake’s top-of-the-line water cooling loop. It features a 240mm radiator that is 38mm thick versus the standard 27mm thick we normally see on 240mm-rad AIO loops. A thicker radiator in theory means better cooling performance – although the pump, tubing and fans all have to be able to take advantage of this extra potential.
The Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme has one main competitor in the marketplace that comes to mind – The Corsair H100i. I have observed a lot of discussions on forums with people looking to know the answer to the question “Should I buy the Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme or the Corsair H100i” and we hope to be able to bring you the evidence to inform this decision. It is widely circulated that the Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme is better than the Corsair H100, but I’ve yet to see a “face-off” with the H100i. It is worth nothing this isn’t just a Water 2.0 Extreme vs H100i comparison, but it is just important to consider competing products to determine whether a product offers good value for money or not.
