Zalman Reserator XT Liquid Cooling review
Posted by Hilbert Hagedoorn on: 10/22/2007 01:00 PM [ 0 comment(s) ]
Due to the slim size these water-blocks are fully compatible with SLI systems and can accommodate a variety of tubing sizes. They only take up a single PCI-Express slot.
Compatible tubing sizes in mm are 13 x 9, 12 x 8, 11 x 8, 10 x 8. Included in the kit is a lot of stuff, including clamps, thermal pads, thermal paste, nipples and o-rings. In short everything you need.
Anodized aluminum base for good heat transfer and anti-corrosion, as you can see not only the GPU is covered by the water-block, nope .. memory mosfets and IO silicon as well. That helps greatly cooling down the entire card.
An incredibly sexy design to be honest. We now move onward to the Resorator XT and later on we will show you the VGA and CPU installation completely.
We still have heaps to cover, better grab a coffee or three while you can !
In the past we have tested a good number of items from them already. Among them the really awesone Reserator water-cooling products. Recently they released a new model of that Reserator cooler namely the Reserator XT. he trick about this incredibly sexy product is that thanks to a low-noise fan we can now push more performance out of their water-cooling product. So here at Guru3D we figured .. hmm, why not test the Reserator XT with a high-end system.
Inno3D GeForce 7950 GT Zalman review
Over the next pages we'll review the Inno3D version. Interestingly enough with Zalman cooler. Our last Inno3D review was slightly negative due to the awful amount of noise the reference coolers made and as any clever company does .. they listen. So they decided to release a model with A Zalman cooler. And you know Zalman .. they offer silence versus good cooling.
Zalman Reserator 2 review
Today we'll be looking at Zalman's Reserator version 2, a completely redesigned and improved passive water-cooling kit that again will stun and amaze. Not only is the kit really sexy looking, I guarantee you it's cooling is even better as well. We'll be water-cooling a CPU and VGA card passively, meaning no fans are being used. The rest is handled by an inaudible pump and mother nature.
Zalman Reserator 1 Plus
Zalman last year released their reserator 1, a passive cooled water-cooling kit. Recently they released the Reserator 1 Plus package .. pretty much the same stuff, yet with new designed water blocks to get more heat from that precious gear of ours. Passively cooled you ask? Yeah, no fans are involved. No fans people, that means no noise .. yay ! The Zalman Reserator 1 Plus is a fanless water cooling system.
