Thermaltake Symphony Mini

Former staff writer    -   May 6, 2007


Conclusion:

After finishing this test, I gained a new level of respect for the Thermaltake Symphony Mini cooler. Try as it might, the Tuniq Tower could not match the results of the Thermaltake water cooling setup. I believe the hoses on the Thermaltake water system are a bit undersized at only ¼ of an inch ID (inner diameter). This would make the connections that the hose slips over even less in inside dimension. At my place of work, as a skilled trades worker, I have to work with pipe quite often and I know that by doubling the inside diameter of a pipe or hose, you will raise the amount of flow through that pipe or hose by a factor of 4. Perhaps an increase in hose size would make this kit perform even better. Regardless, it's an impressive cooler that could use some larger tubing, as it couldn't cope with the temperatures when I brought up my overclock to 3.8 Ghz.


Pros:

  • Self contained
  • All inclusive
  • 3 1400 RPM quiet 120 mm fans
  • Pure brazing copper water block
  • Large aluminum radiator
  • Easy install
  • Dual pumps
  • Quick disconnect couplings


Cons:

  • Does not cool to the extreme
  • Quality control missed a pinched hose
  • Hose size could be bigger
