Water Cooling System

As we mentioned, all components from the water cooling system are located on the case top. By removing the top panel you have access to them.

In Figure 5 you can clearly see all the components: radiator with two fans attached, pump and water tank. One interesting thing to notice is that the hoses used are car-grade hoses (black) and not thin transparent hoses like used by other water coolers. The hoses used to connect the blocks to the water cooler, however, are standard transparent hoses used by water coolers.

This water cooling system comes with just one block, for the CPU. It is 100% made of copper with a very smooth base, as you can see in Figure 6.

If you want to use this water cooling system to cool down you video card and/or your motherboard chipset you will need to buy a GPU block and/or a chipset block and their respective hoses. In order to promote the release of this new product, Gigabyte is also including the VGA water block on the package during a limited amount of time.

Nevertheless this case already comes with two splitters for you to install these extra blocks.

One of the splitters is for providing cooled water to the block and the other splitter is for returning hot water to the cooler.
