I'm thinking about swapping to Wavemaster and Water Cooling

Recommended Posts

I'm planning my next CoolerMaster project and the Wavemaster TAC-T01 is really attractive to me. Is this case agreeable to a water cooling solution? I have two Tower systems, one is a CMStacker. The oldest tower is loud and the cover doesn't fix tight. How can I determine which cooling solution will work for me

Something like this, then?

You'll have to scroll down a bit to get to the pictures.

To answer your question, Wavemasters are great for water-cooling.

Be Well!

That is one awesome system!! For me to do something like this a lot of planning has to go into it. Are you aware of where I could get a game plan for a water cooling project?

I wonder if CoolerMaster has any plans for 'Water Cooled Ready' cases?

Well, you might try http://reviews.cnet.com/4520-11319_7-6291064-1.html

Of course, you might not Really need to water cool - Unless you're planning on taking your computer into a sauna, or Overclocking, a high-end air cooler does the trick just fine.

If you're sure about water-cooling, an Aquagate Mini - 80 would fit the Wavemaster neatly, or you could use Aquagate Viva. These are compact, but effective systems that are easy to install.

And, yes, as KitKat said, the Mystique is a newer case with design features that support external, as well as internal water cooling. You could put an Aquagate Mini - 120 into the Mystique.

The system shown in that modding link was custom designed and built, by an experienced modder. I'm not saying you couldn't do just as well, but there are easier ways to get your feet wet in water-cooling.

Good Luck!

Be Well!

I would not recommend using those two at all. I know, I've tried. The Mini rad won't fit in the top fan area, and if you install it in the back you'll kill what little airflow the WaveMaster already has. That fact alone makes the case a good candidate for watercooling, but you'd want to do it with an external kit, or you could modify the case itself.

Besides, the Mini isn't particularly powerful and you can't refill it...

You should Fireheart's advice about buying a high-end air cooler. They cool very well and usually aren't too loud. Of course if you're doing some serious overclocking or you just want to experiment with watercooling, go nuts! :D

I built one which looks hot, has a nice build, tight fit, clean, stays wet where pink, dissipates plenty of heat and requires a strong pump.

I have plenty of experience in this area, if you have questions let me know.

I was half expecting to be linked to porno after reading that. :lol:

I must have missed your watercooling adventure post- very nice. Definitely tight and smokin hot.

Haha, thank you. I must say it was a fun project and I did it as well about as it can be done. In the end I'm not sure I would recommend watercooling at all.

I appreciate the honesty. To be honest myself, I was thinking of watercooling my WaveMaster as well. It looks a lot nicer than the Centurian case I use now so I've always wanted to switch back somehow.

I think you'd have better luck with an external kit, like the Resorator from Zalman. One of those would pair nicely with a WaveMaster me thinks.
