All-in-one liquid coolers have become quite popular over the past few years, but there's something to be said for doing your own plumbing. Thermaltake apparently agrees, because it introduced a DIY liquid cooling kit at CES today. The limited-edition Pacific RL240 includes all the parts required to build your own liquid cooling setup:
The kit includes a reservoir-and-pump combo with a 400-ml tank and 500-l/hr flow rate. The accompanying CPU block fits all modern sockets; it has a copper base and a "0.15-mm microfin internal structure."
A beefy, dual-fan radiator sits at the other end of the cooling equation. Two LED-infused 120-mm fans are included, as well, along with six chromed compression fittings, 79" of medical-grade tubing, and a jug of "eco-friendly" red coolant. Here's how it all looks inside a complete system:
Yeah, that looks a lot more exotic than any of the closed-loop setups out there. To be fair, Thermaltake sneakily added some 90° fittings that aren't included in the kit. I suspect the tubing is too stiff to turn tight corners without them.
