    Hello
    I am a newbie when it comes to watercooling but decided to give it a go. I'm getting a BigWater 745 system by Thermaltake and want to add a GFX cooler to it. Having an (ASUS) nVidia 8800GTS, I want to use the ZALMAN ZM-GWB8800-GTS cooler, but can't work out if it is compatible with the Thermaltake tubing. After doing some conversions by my reckoning the tube in the Thermaltake system is .5mm thicker than that compatible with the GFX cooler. Firstly, am I right about this? Secondly, if I am or if I'm not, can it work?
    Thanks to all

    If the existing block doesn't fit the new card then I'd be wary of using the same system for the new card. You should always build watercooling setups yourself to avoid issues like this. Prebuilt kits like the Nautilus and the Bigwater always perform very poorly too, often bested by good heatsinks.
