    build some good quality water cooling things so you are no longer the laughing stock of the water cooling community and someone else can take your place.


    was that a bit harsh?

    We are constantly working on innovative new designs to blow away the competition weather it be in style or performance. If you have not done so yet please check out the FRIO OCK.

    Not harsh at all we appreciate any feedback as it lets us know what you want. We are working on some new Liquid cooling systems which were hoping will fit your needs quite nicely.

    Case design we are working toward usability and aesthetics. I am personally trying to address internal mounting capabilities in future case designs.


    Thank you all of you guys for the feedback.

    Sorry about the lateness of the replies but I am in Portland hanging out with the gamer crowd at PDXLAN... back to the show.

    I really like the Thermaltake Chaser MK-I
    Will a Swiftech H20-320 fit up in the top of that case ?

    Things that arent aluminum, pumps that work (or maybe no pumps at all) and blocks that can compete in the high end would nearly be enough to turn things around in itself...

    Make kits with Laing pumps, copper rads that perform good enough to work correctly and decent blocks and people would start buying Thermaltake.

    How about a screw-style pump? Literally an auger in a pipe.

    FRIO is ok.. but really its just a Megamalams or true or whatever. A tower cooler. Works fine, but not really going for performance.

    R&D the best air cooler ever that will go against - or better them - Silver Arrow/ NHD14 BUT won't take half of the mobo's space.
    I have a bad experience with water so I'd stick to air for the moment

    does TT make PSU's?

    He is correct, we have PSU lines for every level of user from replacement for a prebuilt or basic home/budget gamer builds all the way to extreme enthusiasts with our Toughpower and Toughpower Grand Series.

    The auger style pump sounds pretty cool, not sure how it would work in real world usage but I will check that out.

    As for the Frio OCK it is one of the top performing air coolers available at this time but as many know I believe we are reaching a tipping point to where air coolers are really reaching their peaks in efficiency and real innovation is the only way to keep from just making coolers bigger and bigger.

    Many people compare the Frio OCK to the Megahalems but if you check all tests and reviews out there the Frio OCK Knocks most of the competition out hands down.

    Please feel free to explain your issues with the pump taht we use presently and I will be happy to address it. We are looking into our design of coolers to ensure that inclusion of corrosion inhibiting materials if mixed metals are used otherwise we take every step we can to avoid mixing metals to eliminate the possibility completely.

    Like that, in a tube. Use magnetic points to drive it probably. Flighting pitch and length will directly relate to amount of flow or pressure it is capable of producing. Multiple drive motor points would increase reliability if one were to fail.


    Also, have you read this thread and associated whitepaper yet? http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...atsink-instead

    The idea could be applied to water cooling as well.

    thanks for the info about those PSU's
    but i can't seem to see a lot of those here in Hong Kongs Sham Shui Po computer center
    will try to do more searching there

    any new HSF in the works?

    Yeah, you don't want to do this. Efficiency will be super low compared to an impeller design. When we start cooling with mud.. or corn.. then maybe consider it. The most efficient pump that I know of is actually built around a perfectly flat plate with high inertia, it's just not very feasible in real applications.
    upgrading...

    Well, the pump has weird inlet/outlet placements, for example it would not work at all in my look without rotaries. It's 500 lph rating is low, and I doubt it has much pressure behind it to compete with other pumps on the market. It also sells at most etailers for $45, when I could buy a proven reliable and performing Jingway 800 lph pump for the same price.

    As far as I know, people are still able to purchase aluminum radiators from you guys as well...someone who doesn't know what they are doing may run a Thermaltake radiator with a copper block and distilled water. ...recipe for disaster.

    I understand what you are saying. Last I checked our design had changed to Copper core tube with Alum fins so that copper is all that the coolant/water is in contact with.

    I'd say better QA on cases-Tt has the dubious distinction of being the only case manufacturer to cause me to need stitches not once but eight times. The most was 18. Other cases have done it too-CM, Apevia, Raidmax-but Tt is the only one I KNOW I'm gonna get cut on.

    Had a Tt Shark, nice case. Wish it had come pre-polished. That took forever.

    Are you referring to sharp edges?

    That unfortunately does happen when you dont have rolled edges on the case which as of recent we have really pushed to have as many rolled or folded edges as possible not only because they are not sharp but because they also make the panel more sturdy.

    I wish we had polished that case as well, but the amount of fingerprints that would happen im sure half the community would hunt me down with pitchforks.

    Absolutely referring to sharp edges. ODD bays were the worst offenders.

    I've used some of the PSUs in the past and had no issues whatsoever, but I'll echo the statement about the liquid cooling. Even a move to a Jingway pump would be a huge step up in reliability, but the round tube radiators, the strange adapter kits and the dogged insistence of using aluminum and ethylene glycol coolants are all holding you back. Not to mention EG is poisonous to all known forms of life.

    I'm eagerly awaiting what you come up with, I reviewed the Tt Shock headset for TBCS and was very happy with it. It goes to show you can come up with great ideas from time to time, it's just making it more consistent. Though being willing to make some of the case designs shows a flair for boldness a few other people ought to look at. It's evident you're trying. I just dunno where you're headed right now.
