My System Specs

Default mCubed T-Balancer

I noticed that you have the mCubed T-Balancer in your build and it seems great. Was just wondering where you bought it as it seems like they don't sell it in NA. Did you get it shipped internationally? And how much did it cost you?

As an owner of both the original T-Balancer and the BigNG, they suck. Look for other devices like the TMS-205 from Koolance or Aqua Computers Aquaero.

Doing some research here... In what aspect would you say the TMS-205 better than the T-balancer?

From what I've read so far it looks like the TMS-205 could be better for pump control, and it has 8 fan connectors so you can control all 8 of them independently?

Where as for the T-balancer there's only 2/4 channels but they are smaller and can fit in the back of the case.

I have a BigNG and the software was a real bear to get set up correctly, but now that it's configured I haven't touched it in like 2 years. Very happy.

I had it shipped internationally and it cost me a small fortune...

I'd go w/ an Aquaero 5 LT first before either. I can't say much about the TMS-205 as I've never used one. But the T-Balancer software is crap & the interface sucks. It hasn't been updated in years and it never will be.

Thanks for the info, will read up more on the Aquaero. You can buy a waterblock to watercool it! Epic.
