Zalman Reserator 2 Watercooling Kit

BCCHardware
13 December 2006
  • Summary: On first boot straight into the BIOS the cpu temperature was already a surprising 44°C. Upon booting into windows I loaded the system down with two instances of folding @ home and watched nervously as the temperature climbed to an astounding 67°C, 5°C higher than the original Reserator 1 with no fan installed.
  • Pros: Excellent performance, Completely silent, Improved aesthetics (personal opinion), Complete kit with optional add-ons, Plethora of mounting options for CPU and GPU waterblocks, Relay triggered power system, No flow alarm system
  • Cons: DC power cable too short, Socket 478 retention spring clips apply far too much force, Rough cut GPU block, Long delay from no coolant flow to alarm sounding

  • Excerpt: With the introduction of the Reserator 2, Zalman has taken a great product and made it even better. They've addressed a number of issues that I found annoying in the earlier versions and improved the performance dramatically. I like the new look a lot and the enhanced cooling is augmented by new safety features that make the Reserator 2 an outstanding product.

  • Conclusion: 外观:刚收到Reserator 2时,从包装箱上的照片觉得它的外观的确令人震撼,好大的块头。包装箱上醒目的“FANLESS”显示出这款产品是采用完全被动散热方式的静音产品。多达五对十组50片的纯铝散热片使散热排的表面积较前几代产品扩大了15%,同时水箱容积缩小了50%,散热排内的铝质水管与散热片焊接在一起,最大程度的降低了材料连接的热阻,从而达到更好的散热效果。   在拍照过程中我们仔细查看了每个零部件,对于ZALMAN的加工工艺不得不提一下,小到螺丝,大到Reserator 2散热排本体,所有的产品制作的都非常精细,ZALMAN的产品测试的越多,越觉得ZALMAN在产品配色、材料选用以及加工制作方面有着独到的眼光与雄厚的实力,每一款产品都象艺术品一般精美,做工无以伦比,令人爱不释手。...

Zalman Reserator 2

  • Conclusion: Pour conclure correctement sur un produit tel que le Reserator 2, il convient de (re)préciser la cible visée par Zalman. Les clients potentiels ne sont pas les accros du degré gagné sur leur processeur ou les adeptes des montées de Vcore liées à la pratique de l’overclocking, loin de là. Seuls les amateurs de silence doivent envisager l’achat du Reserator que ce soit la version 1 ou 2. Car c’est là son unique but : refroidir valablement en silence.
