Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer All-in-One Liquid &hellip by Thermaltake

I used this in a custom built case (a stripped out old G4 Mac tower) with an AMD A8-3870K on an ASROCK A75M-ITX motherboard, with not much room to squeeze it in, but the relatively small pump fitted nicely over the cpu and I managed to fit the radiator with just one of the fans instead of both, and it works fine.

Formatted fine using GUID scheme, though I had to select this manually as it wasn't the default for some reason. Restored OS X partition from a Time Machine backup. OS X itself is happy with the Advanced Format (AF) drive, but I initially had several bizarre problems trying to use rEFIt, the multi-boot manager, as I split the drive into two (or more) partitions for running Kubuntu Linux as well. It appeared ok to start with, but then kept booting straight into OS X. Reinstalling rEFIt didn't work, I even had the installer fail, and trying to copy the directories over to the EFI folder manually… Read more
