Thermaltake has developed a new watercooling kit, the Bigwater 735, which appears to be a newer, upgraded version of their previously released Bigwater kit.We have been previously impressed with Thermaltake�s attention to detail and high quality products.Will this latest offering provide similar results?Let�s see.

The Thermaltake Bigwater 735 kit comes in a red and black box similar to other Thermaltake products.The radiator, water tank/pump, and the CPU waterblock are all visible through the box�s clear plastic front.Along with the kit came a number of upgrade accessories for us to try out.More on those in a little bit.
Opening the Bigwater 735 kit, the contents were very well secured in a custom styrofoam form. The kit comes with a 12cm radiator, the combined water pump and tank, a CPU waterblock, a bottle of coolant, green tubing (ID 9.5mm) associated hardware/fittings, and of course a detailed instruction manual.Basically, the Bigwater kit comes with everything you need to cool the CPU.
The water pump and reservoir tank are shipped connected together, though I think you can separate them if needed.Both units were fairly plain-looking.The reservoir tank is fairly plain, made of �smoky gray� plastic that allows you to see the coolant level and two level marks labeled simply as �high� and �low�.The low level comes up fairly high (around the middle of the reservoir).The pump is also plain-looking, with a black exterior and a blue LED light mounted on the top.Another thing of note is that the two liquid connectors oriented straight up/vertically; many other coolers have horizontal connections.
