Street Price: GBP £79.99 / USD $89.99 / AUS $139.99
Thermaltake are a large, well-known brand within the PC enthusiast sector, perhaps best known for their cooling equipment, they also produce DRAM, peripherals, power supplies and even furniture. Today we’re going to take a look at their latest 120mm AIO cooling loop.
The Thermaltake Water 3.0 120 ARGB Sync TT Premium Edition uses an RGB pump enclosure and a single 120mm Thermaltake Pure ARGB Sync radiator fan, both of which offer full 5V support for RGB lighting control via ASUS Aura Sync, GIGABYTE Fusion Sync, MSI Mystic Light and ASRock RGB lighting on compatible motherboards.
For those who are using motherboards without a 5V RGB header, Thermaltake have included an in-line RGB controller that can individually address up to 90 RGB LEDs, useful if you’d like to add further fans/RGB strips at the same time.
CPU socket support is extensive, supporting pretty much any CPU socket apart from AMD’s ThreadRipper. AM4 and LGA2066 are both fully supported.
Pricing, at £80/$90/$140 (UK, US, AU) puts it at the premium end of the 120mm radiator AIO sector so performance will be key in our testing but with the RGB lighting on the pump enclosure and the 120mm fan, it should look great.
