    So I stumbled upon this article from TweakTown in XS forums
    TweakTown’s Guide To Water Cooling Made Easy :: TweakTown

    After finished reading it, I was wondering if TweakTown actually did this just for teh LULZ :haha:

    Recommending this Thermaltake watercooling kit is already a big FAIL, but wait, there's more :mrgreen:


    Most epic TIM spread FAIL ever :thumb:

    :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha:

    OMGWTFFFFFFFFFFF? :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha:

    Seriously, what were they thinking? :haha: and what the hell is their editor doing? I'm not a frequent reader of TweakTown, but since when did TweakTown's standard bottomed to this extend :haha:

    Luckily they still managed to recommend the right software for thermal testing :lol:

    I stopped reading Tweaktown a few years ago, can't really remember why :think:

    I honestly never liked TweakTown's reviews. They seem to lack professionalism most of the time. :(

    Were they ever high standard to begin with? :haha:

    Now I understand what you meant. They think they are applying butter on bread! :haha:

    No, they don't, but I never expected them to come up with such an article :haha: :haha: The reviewer doesn't even know to use the word "heatsink" :haha:

    It's unsurprising, since they post a few articles a day! :o Not even AT or Tech Report are able to post that much. I don't really understand. If you use the right fittings and tubing, clamp it properly, it shouldn't leak.

    Holy crap! I don't remember tweaktown being that bad! Maybe someone shot their editor and assumed his identity?

    Bare in mind most non-techie people I know apply thermal paste just like that and even worse. A friend of mine had an overheating CPU problem. When I took of the heatsink there was a truckload of goop oozing all over the place... he'd used 3/4 of the tube (regular silicon based paste).

    Correct, but I would expect an editor from a tech site knowing how to apply thermal paste properly.

    Exactly, and that is supposed to be a guide! :haha:
