If there is any line of products that I would say we here at ThinkComputers.org are most familiar with it would have to be Thermaltake AIO coolers. Over the past couple years we have reviewed nearly their entire line of products. Overall we have found them to be adequate to top level performers. And while their arsenal of self contained water coolers is formidable they have seemed to lack a stand out champion. You know a hands down performance winner across the board. And so I was certainly intrigued when we got our hands on Tt’s newest AIO entry, the Water 3.0 Ultimate. This triple 120 rad AIO is one of the first on the market and the largest AIO we have reviewed at TC. So does size matter? Follow along and find out if this can finally be Thermaltake’s all out performance champ.
While the packaging for the 3.0 Ultimate is pretty standard it is of course super-sized to accommodate the plus sized 360mm radiator. On the front of the box we find a nice graphic of the cooler itself, some branding, and of course a few specs in the lower right hand corner.
The back of the box presents us with several graphics, a performance graph and a listing of features. Finally the bottom of the box has the complete specification listing as well as the multilingual spec listing.
The box opens on either of the longer ends and we find inside a large egg carton style holder. The top of the holder is covered with a thin sheet of foam padding for top side protection. All pretty typical AIO fare. Beneath this we find all the components nestled into their own preformed spaces and held securely. For added protection, the pump and tubing is all shrouded in a plastic bag.
