Thermaltake Water 3.0 360 ARGB Sync Review

The box, as expected, is pretty vast considering the size of the radiator included. The front of the box shows a large clear picture of the cooler itself, along with some core features of the cooler like its ARGB lighting and socket compatibility. The rear of the box provides some more key features and specs for the cooler.


Opening the box we find some installation instructions, a few bags of mounting hardware for current Intel and AMD sockets, a bunch of additional cables and adapters for connecting the three fans, as well as all of the lighting. Speaking of the lighting, a SATA powered controller comes included, but there are also two adapters for controlling the lighting via your motherboard’s ARGB header.

The fans in question are Thermaltake Pure 12 ARGB Sync radiator fans which feature a 9 blade design and operate between 500 – 1500 RPM. Along with rubber anti-vibration mounts, each fan features a separate connector for lighting (which can be daisy-chained), and a 4-pin PWM connector. Both cables are also coated in a black rubber heat shrink, which definitely gives a cleaner aesthetic.

Taking a look at the cooler itself, there is a bit of bulk to the CPU block thanks to the addition of RGB lighting for the Thermaltake logo, but otherwise it looks like a familiar Asetek design. The radiator itself measures 394 x 120 x 27 mm and the tubing, although not braided, is a full 400mm long which is more than enough length to reach the front or top of your chosen case.
