Despite water cooling's reputation as an endeavor reserved exclusively for the hard-core, there are a plethora of ready-made kits for semi-custom water cooling. Thermaltake, whose line of Pacific radiators we covered last year, already offers complete kits for the RL360 and RL240 radiators with flexible tubing. As hard-tube water cooling is becoming more popular, the company is expanding its offerings to include a couple of kits with clear plastic tubing.
The Pacific RL360 D5 and RL240 D5 are simply hard-tube versions of the previous RL360 and RL240 kits, and as such include the same W1 waterblock and D5 pump-reservoir combo. Thermaltake provides two 120mm red-LED fans on the RL240, while the RL360 gets a trio of RGB LED fans for that legit gamer flavor. The kits also include four clear plastic pipes, six compression fittings, and all of the necessary mounting hardware, plus opaque coolant. Thermaltake didn't provide any information on availability or pricing, but we expect to see these units after Computex.
