The idle temps are a little bit better on the Water2.0 Pro then the H100.
All said and done, I think this is a great unit!!
Water2.0 Pro avg. idle temps stock: 30.25 degrees celcius
Water2.0 Pro avg. load temps stock: 46.5 degrees celcius
Water2.0 Pro avg. load temps on 4.2 GHZ OC: 57.75 degrees celcius
H100 avg. idle temps on 4.2 GHZ OC: 33 degrees celcius
H100 avg. load temps on 4.2 GHZ OC: 58.25 degrees celcius
* Packaging was egg carton shell
* Easy on the eyes and well built
* Includes Push-Pull Set-up fans out of the box. Not included in H100 Set-up, have to buy 2 more fans
* Rubber tubing was better IMO then corsairs solution of metal coiled tubing
* Outstanding Results after benching
* Super easy installation
* Supports AMD and Intel Sockets including new 2011 socket!
* All in one closed loop System with zero maintenance
* Plastic backplate that makes it easy for the 4 grommets to strip out when installing the Unit
* Wish tubing was a little bit longer so i had more mounting options
* No built in fan controller on pump like H100 unit. BUT, the next model up includes that feature i believe.
Well worth the MSRP of $99.99. I think that Thermaltake is moving in the right direction with this product line. They are making it easy for us, the end user to add a closed loop to any system! I stand behind their products and you can put my vote in for them!! Can't wait to get my hands on a Water 2.0 Extreme, I am personally making the jump from corsair to Thermaltake for my closed loop water cooling needs!
This concludes my review for this product. Hope you have found it informative, and that it can help you make a decision on your next closed loop system.

When I opened the box and really got to take a look at the Thermaltake WATER2.0 one of the first things I noticed was the tubing, which is a very flexible but firm rubber material that is 326mm in length. The second thing I noticed was the radiator and its thick design which is made out of aluminum and is 149.9 x 119.9 x 48.8mm. It comes with two 120mm fans that are rated at 1200 - 2000RPM at a 27.36dBA (max) and 81.32CFM and with the push-pull combination and good CFM fans you have the making of a great cooler. The third thing I noticed was that there was no fan controller on the pump which shouldn't be an issue, especially if you have a good motherboard or an add-on fan controller in your PC. I use the Fan Expert software for ASUS motherboards that works perfectly for controlling the speed of all the fans in my PC.

The main interest in the cooler is obvious, how well does it cool. We start by looking at the heat sink being that its one of the first major components on any cooling system that needs to pull the heat away from the processor and allow the transfer of that heat to the water cooling. Thermaltake has a very well designed machined solid copper plate with Skived Fin Technology which is "the process of combing special cutting tools and a controlled shaving technique". Skived fin technology is known to be very efficient while also keeping the cost down and most manufacturers use this technique for just that reason, its proven to be effective. In the Thermaltake WATER2.0 system it has definitely proven to be very effective.
The other notable thing about the copper block is how it is mounted to the pump. To some this may seem insignificant, but you couldn't be further from the truth. Copper is a soft metal and can warp or bend under pressure. If you tighten it down incorrectly it could cause a slight enough gap between the copper and the processor that it can and will cause a deviance in temperature control. Thermaltake obviously took this in to account by evenly distributing ten mounting screws. By having so many mounting points it allows the pressure to be be evenly distributed which keeps the copper plate from flexing or bending.
The mounting brackets are easy to install, but there is one thing I am concerned with and that is the quality of the nut or the screw. While finger tightening one of the screws I felt that slip of the beginning of striping. Now I don't think I put too much in to tightening it and the fact that I could do that with my fingers means that the part could potentially fail and not give you a evenly spread pressure which would be like having a warped copper plate. I stopped immediately when I felt that because I know all to well what happens if you continue. So at this point I am hoping that there is minimal damage to the screw or the nut and it should hold perfectly fine. Just keep in mind when you get your Thermaltake WATER2.0 kit that you should be careful when tightening down the mounting screws, although this should be for anything really. Other than this one thing the durrability of of the entire system feels solid.
The radiator is the thickest radiators of all the Thermaltake Water coolers sitting at 49mm thick. With all that surface area you will definitely get a lot more heat dissipation. It's got some serious weight to it. The great thing about this radiator setup is that you should not need to do any maintenance on it for the life of the product, other than blowing the dust out of it from time to time. This radiator is also ranked as a "Best" option from Thermaltake and it shows. It is able to keep everything at a very cool temp and quickly brings that temp down when not under load, a very efficient design.
Installation time can and will vary from one person to another. I know I can be a bit methodical when installing new hardware. I will take my time to get to know it and make sure it will go where I want it to without any issues. My installation took about 45 minutes, but that includes taking out the older closed loop water cooling system I had in there and removing the motherboard to swap out the back plates. I like the fact that when I ran this for the first time after installation is that I could hear all the air bubble go away before the PC was fully booted and the pump is extremely quite, things I cherish when building a system. Nothing worse than an air bubble stuck in the pump causing cavitation or a loud pump in general.
Difference in cooling was noticeable immediately. There was a 3-5°F difference in idle temps over my previous Corsair H100 and the noise was reduced dramatically while maintaining a higher CFM than the previous setup. It's hard to test a true CFM, but by feel there is a definitive difference. Under a ten minute load with Prime95 the system started out at 68°F and quickly rose to 104°F after about 5 minutes, but it stayed steady for the remaining time. There was no noticeable difference after 3 hours so I stopped the test there. Under a gaming load of BF3 the processor never reached more than 98°F. This was with the side panel of the PC closed with x2 120mm fans in front pushing air in and x2 120mm up top pulling air out. Also key thing to note is that even under load the noise from the fans was almost nothing.
Wow, I am impressed with the Thermaltake WATER2.0 Pro. This unit is definitely worth the cost and I oppsolutely recommend it to anyone looking to quite down their PC and venture in to water cooling systems on a budget. I was skeptical about putting it up against another well known system, but the Thermaltake WATER2.0 Pro proved to be a new big contender and to think , there is a step up from this one. I don't see that there needs to be any improvements in the cooling department, but maybe a look in to the mounting hardware being toughened up a little. Other than that is is a solid, silent, proficient cooling system for any PC user. I added the image below to give you an idea of what it looks like in a Mini ATX case, there is plenty of room and looks really nice in there.
UPDATE: I didn't get my H100 tested under load because it slipped my mind. However, From what I remember the H100 was sitting at something like 115°F under load. I would also like to point out something I find important and that is the comment made about the stripping of the bolt or nut. Neither of those actually happen as it was pointed out that the nut that goes in the back plate can actually slip in its recessed socket if torqued too much. Commonly this happened more often with the use of tools rather than by hand. So please keep this in mind. When it feels tight, it's more than likely tight enough.
Note: It comes fully assembled and has the coolent in it. It is a sealed system that never needs maintence.
First off, Waterblock installation was kind of a pain for me and this was my first experience with putting in something like this. I had issues with getting the grommets to stay in place and had to keep pushing them in to lock it in. Other than that the rest of the setup was relatively simple
I used the stock fans for a couple days before changing them out with Silent Sickleflow fans. So here is my findings,
Stock fans MAX RPM
Idle/regular websurfing: 17-21c
Silent Fans MAX RPM
Idle/regular websurfing: 19-22c
So the max speeds all the time were still a little too noisy for me so I hooked them onto my fan controller and picked the best RPMs myself
Idle/regular websurfing: 900-1100 RPM, 23-29c
Gaming: 1400-1600 RPM, 36-41c
Load: 2000 RPM MAX, 43-48c
