Water Cooling is awesome. There’s no doubt about it. Traditionally, it performs better than air cooling, it’s quieter, and looks amazing. But, it’s also expensive, can be complicated, and to the uninitiated, looks risky. So, what if you want the benefits of water cooling, whilst eliminating…well, every one of those drawbacks? Enter the self-contained water cooling unit.
The Thermaltake WATER 2.0 Performer and Pro are made by Asetek. They are both equipped with 120mm radiators, allowing effective mounting almost anywhere in a chassis that has 120mm fan mounting locations. Thermaltake provide you with two 120mm fans so that you’re able to do a push/pull set up, which is most welcome and much appreciated.

We will never know, but nevertheless check out our screenshot below of the defaced Thermaltake page, or head over to their site before it is changed.
