Back at Computex during our catch up with Thermaltake, we received word of a hard-tubing liquid cooling bundle, set up to give you everything you need to put together a water-cooling loop in one easy package. Now, the TT Pacific CL360 Max D5 water cooling kit has officially arrived.
For those looking to get into liquid cooling, Thermaltake’s Pacific CL360 Max D5 Hard Tube water cooling kit appears to be a good starting point. This will include hard tubes, a Pacific W5 RGB CPU block, a Pacific PR22-D5 Plus Pump/Reservoir combo, a CL360 radiator and TT Riing RGB fans to go along with it. Eight G1/4 compression fittings and a bottle of T1000 clear coolant are also included, giving you all of the tools you’ll need to hit the ground running with custom water cooling. Although you may need to source some extra bits if you plan on water-cooling your GPU too, although a couple of extra fittings and a GPU block should do the trick.
The Pacific W5 CPU block uses an anti-corrosive nickel plating, a PMMA cover and a central inlet for water. The block itself has a built-in temperature sensor too, so you can see real-time updates on coolant temperatures. The CL360 on the other hand is a 360mm copper radiator with a high-density fun design and LED strips for extra lighting. The radiator uses standard G1/4″ threads as expected and includes leak protection measures for safety.
Finally, the Pacific PR22-D5 Plug Reservoir/Pump combo is pretty self-explanatory. This unit contains a pump and reservoir, which can store 300ml of coolant. The pump can sustain a maximum pressure of up to 99 PSI and can discharge up to 1135 litres per hour at maximum speeds, so cooling performance should be solid all around once all is set up.
The full kit is available now on the Thermaltake store, here in Europe, it will cost €549.90.
KitGuru Says: If you are building your first loop, then looking at bundles like this is usually a good start to get an idea for what you will need. Once you get going, water cooling isn’t as intimidating as it first seems, although tube bending can take some practise. Are any of you currently looking at water cooling your system?
