Thermaltake Tide Water All in One VGA Liquid Cooling Module Review
Page 1 of 6

INTRODUCTION

crazypc.com

Water cooling has come a long way in the past few years. With Intel's recent innovation it could become more maintenance free and mainstream than ever before. In that same vein of relative maintenance-free liquid cooling, Thermaltake brings us the Tide Water All in One VGA Liquid Cooling Module. My first reaction to this was "neat, but probably too good to be true". Was my hunch correct? Let's find out.

The Thermaltake Tide Water All in One VGA Liquid Cooling Module (I think we have a new winner in the category for Longest Product Name) will make a believer out of you on all counts. Sounds great, but how well does it cool? Before we get to that let's take a closer look at the Tide Water.
