One of the first things you will read online when you start looking about water cooling kits and custom loops (also possibly what people will tell you if you ask around) will be that they require a good amount of time to install/mount and that they cost quite a bit which is why many manufacturers (and people) still consider them part of the more "niche" market aimed at overclockers, professionals and enthusiasts. Well if you've been following our reviews then you know that things have changed a lot in the past 5 years and so although back then there were just a handful of manufacturers that offered custom water cooling kits today there are twice as many and since competition always favors the end consumer it's a lot more affordable today for someone to build his very own custom loop. Thermaltake has been in the cooling industry for as long as i can remember but it was just last year that they started unveiling their very own water cooling kits and today we'll be taking a look at the Pacific RL240 model.

Just like any other 240mm water cooling kit out in the market today the Pacific RL240 is comprised by a dual 120mm radiator, pump/reservoir combo, water block, water cooling tube, compression fittings, coolant and two 120mm fans. Since Thermaltake however is not your typical manufacturer in order to make the Pacific RL240 stand out from the crowd/competition they equipped it with a 64mm thick radiator, powerful D5 pump, two "silent" 120mm red LED fans and 1 liter of red coolant. So although the radiator is just another dual 120mm one (that's not a bad thing since it can fit where larger models can't) thanks to its FPI count of 14 (fins per inch) and 64mm thickness it should be able to match larger 280mm models in performance while the D5 pump should be more than enough for people who may wish to expand the loop to include a 2nd or even a 3rd radiator and one or more GPU water blocks. So who wants to see what the Pacific RL240 Water Cooling Kit by Thermaltake is really capable of?
