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.
Summary: This thing poured a pitcher of rock-out all over our air coolers, beat all the lame, preconstructed water-cooling units we’ve encountered, and even rivaled our favorite peltier coolers in terms of degrees cooled. Our only hesitation comes from the lack of a difference in performance when the fan is running silently versus cranked.
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.
