We started out this review wondering if Thermaltake had what it took to create a go to performance AIO cooler. A cooler that you wouldn’t hesitate to recommend as the best of the best. And while things started out a little shaky in the install department with some questionably too long screws, the Water 3.0 Ultimate fought hard to bring things back around. By the time we finished testing we had our answer. Be it the simplified backplate and smooth no fuss installation process, or the hands down fantastic performance, this AIO is truly one of the best. It brings custom loop performance without the hassle and does so at a fantastic volume thanks to a great trio of fans.
Of course it is a 360 rad and is not going to be able to fit in all cases. But for that matter neither will some of the 240 rad AIO’s on the market. For flat out performance in all areas the Water 3.0 Ultimate is the way to go. Situated at $139.99 USD we find this to be the exact price point we would expect.
ThinkComputers.org would like to award the Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate with a 10 out of 10 score!
– Strongest performing AIO we have tested yet
– Easy installation
– Exceptionally quiet
– Spot on price point
– Fan screws can be overtightened and cause radiator damage
