Thermaltake has unveiled the ProWater PW880i LCS, providing a complete water cooling solution for the PC while mounting externally.
The external design of the PW880i makes installation and maintenance of the system much easier than convential water cooling systems and doesn't affect internal airflow within the case. The entire system mounts to a bracket which attaches to the rear fan mount of the case.
The heart of the PW880i is the P500 pump. The P500 moves 8.3 liters of water per minute, providing all of the components with fresh, cool water for optimal performance. Cooling the water is a 28cm radiator with dual 12cm fans that are user adjustable for speed and sound. All of this is fed by the semi-clear 350cc resivior that is easy to fill and maintain.
The brazed, pure copper waterblock is designed to fit just about every mainstream CPU on the market including LGA775/1336 for Intel processors and K8/AM2/AM2+ for AMD processors. Those wanting to cool more of their system can do so through the accessories for the PW880i.
Thermaltake has a VGA waterblock that they say will fit most high end GPUs such as the GTX 285 or Radeon HD 4890 and a North Bridge block as well. Rounding out the accessories is the M connector that allows one to split the cool and run the blocks in parallel. This ensures that each block gets the coldest water as possible whereas running the water in series gets warmer as it reaches each component in the line.
Thermaltake hasn't said anything concerning availability or price for the PW880i. Those wanting to read the full press release can do so here and can also visit Thermaltake's official page for the PW880i.
