Thermaltake Volcano 4005 Heat Exchanger Review - Page 1 of 3

INTRODUCTION

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to review the Thermaltake BigWater Liquid Cooling System. Thermaltake has been adding to its list of new items for use with this system. I recently received Thermaltake's Volcano 4005 Heat Exchanger for review. They hail it as "the most advanced Liquid CPU Waterblock available to date." Thermaltake's new waterblock is meant to be a direct replacement for any waterblock, not just the Thermaltake BigWater cooling system. Is the most advanced waterblock really much better than a standard waterblock? Yes...and No.
