Pump/Reservoir

Thermaltake SwordM Water Cooling System - Part 2 - Cases and Cooling 30

This particular pump appears to be similar (but not identical) to other pumps Thermaltake uses in their liquid cooling systems.  The inlet fitting attaches to the reservoir via a friction fit.  The pump cable is terminated with a 4-pin Molex connector and rpm sense wire that can be plugged into a spare motherboard fan header to monitor pump speed/operation.

Coolant

Thermaltake supplies two bottles of pre-mixed coolant (500cc each), which is more than enough to fill the system.  The coolant is primarily water and contains ethylene glycol (the toxic variety of automotive antifreeze) so keep it away from children and pets.
