It’s not only EKWB and Alphacool that make components for custom watercooling, Thermaltake is also in the business. The brand proves this by announcing a new CPU block, the Pacific SW1 Plus. A model with a sophisticated design, inspired by the design of its latest AIO TH V2 aRGB kits!
Pacific SW1 Plus: a waterblock with a sophisticated design!
From a visual point of view, the least we can say is that the design is more than refined. It features a transparent upper section surrounded by a grey ring screwed to the base of the block… While internally an aRGB ring is present.
But that’s not all: aRGB lighting can be controlled via the brand’s TT RGB Plus 2.0 software. What’s more, the software won’t just be useful for managing aRGB lighting, as it will also act as an official monitoring system. Yes, a thermal probe is present to measure the temperature of the liquid.
In terms of dimensions, we’re dealing with a rather compact model measuring 90 mm in diameter and 29 mm in height. The construction is based on a mirror-finish nickel-plated copper base, while the upper part is made of PMMA plastic.
The connection to the watercooling loop is made via two G1/4″ threads, the inlet and outlet of which are symbolized by incoming and outgoing arrows. To ensure optimum heat transfer between CPU and waterblock, Thermaltake supplies a syringe of liquid metal. Its conductivity? 52 W/m.K.
Finally, we’d like to mention the price: €150.90 from Alternate, where the block is currently available for pre-order.
