Cooling giant Thermaltake has announced the launch of its latest radiator designs, the Pacific RL and R families, boasting of improved lifespan and cooling performance.
Designed specifically with PC liquid cooling in mind, the Thermaltake Pacific range feature what the company describes as 'an exceptional manufacturing process using high-temperature brazing at 550°C
' to crate a thermal joint between the cooling fins and the liquid piping for improved heat transfer. The brazing process also sees the aluminium radiators treated to a zinc layer, which the company claims drops the corrosion point by 55.6 per cent compared to untreated aluminium.
Where the two Pacific lines diverge is in dimensions. The Pacific RL range, Thermaltake explains, is an ultra-thick design boasting a dual-row 13-set flat tube design for maximum heat transfer, with the liquid flowing down on one side, passing through the bottom chamber, and then recirculating back to the other side. The Pacific R, by contrast, has only a single-row 13-set flat tube layout, but offers a slim design more suited to cramped cases.
Thermaltake is certainly hoping to tempt buyers by offering a wide range of sizes for both radiator ranges. The thick Pacific RL range is to be available in 120mm, 140mm, 240mm, 280mm, 360mm, 420mm, 480mm, and 560mm lengths, while the thinner Pacific R range is available in 120mm, 180mm, 240mm, 360mm, and 540mm lengths. For those with an eye for aesthetics, a sub-set of Pacific RL models - the 120mm, 240mm, and 360mm models - are available in a white finish.
The Pacific RL family starts at $49.99 recommended retail price for the RL120, raising to $125.99 for the RL560. Pricing for the slimmer Pacific R family has yet to be confirmed. More information is available from the company's press release
