The kit is really well packed again, and it is really looking like the 735 kit so far. Here we have the pump/res combo unit, the single 120mm radiator and the CPU block, all well packed in foam and protected with a plastic overlay.
The pump/reservoir unit is the same from the 735, with the clear plastic res with level indicators, and the small pump with mounting holes.
There are rubber feet on both the res and pump. So mounting it to the floor of a case (if possible), while being a good idea is not necessary.
Look familiar? Again, the same copper and acrylic waterblock from the 735 kit, with blue LED in one corner. You can see the channels for the water to flow between the inlet and outlet.
The base is extremely thick, and it is very heavy.
The single Radiator is the exact same unit from the 735 kit, a good size radiator, with a 120mm x 35mm fan to supply ideal airflow/noise ratio using a fan controller. The aluminum fins soldered to the copper pipes provide good heat transfer.
The dual radiator is protected in foam inside the box. This radiator is a really good size, and all the fans are Thermaltake’s own orange 120mm versions.
The back of the radiator has covers on it to protect the aluminum fins, which is a good thing if it will be mounted on a desk.
Speaking of which, here it is with the included feet installed, ready for installation and to mount on your desk or on top of your PC.
Coolant and accessories aren’t just floating around in the box either.
The usual bits and pieces for a cooler installation, as well as a fan controller for the single radiator.
The stands for the dual radiator are also well packed.
As with every piece of Thermaltake H2O gear, there is heaps of their 3/8” I.D. tubing. More than enough for this installation, as we will see.
