    Default ThermalTake 2.0/3.0 in ThermalTake Element T

    Note: This is a double post, as I am unsure if this thread goes to Cases & Modding, or Cooling so, without further ado.

    Heyo!
    So I finally reach the stage of being allowed to upgrade my computer
    I was thinking of getting a liquid cooler for awhile, and now I can.
    In the beginning, I was thinking of getting the ThermalTake Water 2.0 Extreme CPU Liquid Cooler, but now there is a 3.0 available.

    What are the differences, pros and cons between them?
    The 3.0 version is significantly more expensive (I think). I don't want to spend excess money on something that might not be as good, or even worse.

    On a side note, I have a ThermalTake Element T case, and I was wondering if the ThermalTake Water 2.0/3.0 Extreme edition will fit. Several reviews claim that there is a liquid cooling space in the case, but I can't find it. So I would like to ask for someone to confirm the cooler to fit in the case (Same brand, I guessed it would, but...). Otherwise I might go with the Pro edition.


    Thanks!




    Summary:
    - Differences between ThermalTake Water 2.0 and its 3.0, newer model.
    - Confirm that the cooler will fit in an Element T case, and if so, instructions.
    - See if pro version is needed instead of extreme.

    the different between Water 2.0 vs Water 3.0 is higher RPM fan, improved pump, tubing and come with monitoring software. Also available in 140mm rad model, all that add on cost, as for performance we don't know yet.

    I think so, as long the top fan port has mounting holes for 240mm rad or you can use the rear fan port for a single rad version.

    You need to measure the distance from the top of motherboard to the top of the case. You need about 100mm if you want to use push/pull fan setup.

    No room up front
    So your choices are limited to one 120mm rad in a push or pull at the back
    at the top you have only one fan position and it looks to me like there may not be enough space for both rad and fan

    see pics provided below

    It would be much easier to purchase a different case, if you have your heart set on using a 240 or 280 AIO cooler.

    Ok, after looked at the pics Vinny posted. It's no go for the top exhaust fan port, it's very tight space for radiator but it's doable for the rear port with the slim rad version of the cooler.

    According to the specs, you can install an intake fan in the front, and there seems to be room for two. Can't the Extreme fit there, since it's 2x larger?

    Don't think so, most AIO design to install at rear of top fan port, its tubing aren't long enough for you to install at the front fan ports. Also there's not enough clearance between the HDD rack and the intake ports.

    Let's assume the tubing is long enough, you have to do some modding to the HDD rack and give up some 5.25 bays for the tubing to pass through

    Unfortunately, you only can use the Water 2.0 Performer or Pro for your case.

    Unfortunately, you only can use the Water 2.0 Performer or Pro for your case.

    Find out how wide the case is, the tubing on the NZXT X60 is 18inches long, so you might be able to use the X60 up front if there's enough room to mount a 280 Rad, but I still believe your best choice would be to buy a case that fits your needs. If you lived in the US I could send you a case, but shipping to where you currently live would be to expensive.
