Final Thoughts and Conclusions
The Aqua Computer Aquaduct 360 XT is an excellent water cooling solution capable of handling the latest CPUs and video cards.  It delivers very good cooling to multiple components.  The Aquaduct 360 XT exhibits excellent build quality and highlights German engineering at its best.  It comes with Aqua Computers advanced Aquaero controller and Aquasuite software, which allows monitoring and controlling just about every variable in the water cooling system.  This feature alone places the Aquaduct 360 XT in a class of its own.  And while the cooling performance of the AquagraFX 8800 GTX video card cooler was good, the performance of the new Cuplex XT Dual Impact CPU waterblock was outstanding.  Unfortunately all this precision engineering comes at a high price, especially here in North America.

The Aquaduct 360 XT along with all of Aqua Computer’s other fine products are available from our friends at SharkaComputers.com.
