Zalman Reserator XT External Water Cooling System Video Review

21 May 2008
  • Summary: The Zalman Reserator XT External Water Cooling System performs very well, is super easy to install and very compact. If you are looking for a compact water cooling system that is on par with some of the separate hardcore water cooling kits, I would strongly recommend you check out this product. With a 120mm fan, 120mm radiator, 500L/hr pump and newly designed solid copper CPU water block, it's extremely impressive. This unit also comes with quick connect couplings.

Zalman Reserator XT

28 January 2008
  • Excerpt: Zalman is no stranger to gigantic external liquid-cooling devices. We’ve become so accustomed to seeing its huge, tower-like Reserator coolers that we nearly choked when the 15-pound Reserator XT arrived in our Lab. For starters, it’s not a large, awkward-to-carry cylindrical column. The rectangular apparatus is comparably compact and sleek, more akin to a subwoofer than a home-theater speaker.
  • Pros: Crispy-cool; smaller than the old enormous Reserators.
  • Cons: Still friggin' huge; pretty annoying to set up; cranking the fan doesn't really increase performance.

Zalman Reserator XT Hybrid Liquid Cooling System Review

PC Perspective
2 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Zalman’s latest liquid cooling system, the Reserator XT, uses both passive and active cooling elements.  The original Reserator 1 and the second generation Reserator 2 used only passive cooling (no fan), which relied on natural convection airflow to dissipate heat.  The hybrid XT incorporates passive radiator modules but also includes two conventional radiators and a fan for active cooling.

  • Excerpt: With its new hybrid cooling design for the XT, Zalman has lost the traditional silence of the previous Reserator systems, but gained significant cooling performance. The Reserator XT is indeed a worthy successor to the Reserators of the past and boasts easy installation, attractive styling and superb materials and workmanship.

Zalman Reserator XT

26 May 2008
  • Summary: Zalman har konstruert en solid ekstern enhet, med flere funksjoner som kan være nyttige. Den har tiltalende spesifikasjoner , men dessverre får ikke alle mulighet til å yte det de kan. Når det kommer til stykket, presterer ikke Reserator XT overraskende godt. Enheten har hele fire radiatorer , noe som skulle bety god kjøling. Disse store kjølearealene blir derimot ikke utnyttet i det hele tatt. Dette tror vi er hovedgrunnen til at kjøleren ikke kjøler unikt godt.
