  • Thermaltake Toughliquid 360 ARGB AIO Watercooler Review



    All in One watercooling has become a cutthroat business and if you go back far enough you can see just how badly things have progressed.  My first memory of a traditional AIO was from Cooler Master back in 2005 with the Aquagate Mini.  This was a precursor to what an AIO would become and ironically enough it was released around the same time as the asetek Waterchill which was a full DIY as the company had yet to produce a smaller AIO. 

    Fast forward several years and asetek patents the AIO form factor, sues Cooler Master and triggers a major rift in the AIO market.  The resulting designs all follow the same principle while how they get there is completely different.

    In this review we will be looking at the Thermaltake Toughliquid 360 ARGB AIO watercooler.  As the name suggests this cooler features a 360mm radiator supporting triple 120mm fans and offers (A)ddressable RGB lighting and will sync with any ARGB 3-pin digital RGB signal.

    The Toughliquid is a new product line based on previous AIO designs and follows many of the current trends established by other mainstream AIO builders.  We will dive into some of those features a little later in this review.

    For now, lets check out the specs.
