I just bought myself a new Zalman Reserator 1 :bows: PRAISE WATERCOOLING :bows:
Building in the darn thing is a S**t work, I tell ya that. But hey it fits (thats what matters)
Just 4 the temp-geeks.... my pc used 2 be around 54 Celcius (after a 2weeks of massive downloading)
Now with all the stuff on it its around the 28-33 :D and still running :p
Plz reply ya'll and let me know what ya think of the thing, and share your experience (if you have it or not).
Praise to Zalman; I love the thing (even though I don't have one) for HTPC use. If I ever get into a situation where I have both room to set up to true home theatre and not have need to worry about moving, then I'll very likely use one to cool said HTPC.
Not a very good choice for high-performance cooling, though (simply on account of it's passive heat dissipation mechanism).
hmm i would be afraid to use water cooling, 1 crack and its all over. Well i alo dont overclock either so what do i know?
whatever you do, dont get the zalman gpu block. it sucks worse than stock air you could get a silverprop HL1 for a silent comp, or you could make your own block if you got a drill press and some copper blocks but as far a kits go that is probly the best
If there was an easy and economical way to constantly use Liquid Nitrogen for cooling, you could do some major overclocking with it. 6+ Gh/z anyone? ;).

Wot you say is partly true.. I payed a 26€ for the block.. but when I opend it, there were 2 blocks.. 1 for ATI cards, 1 for NVIDIA. Thats ok.. and then next you get all these small blocks that can fit on your ram of the card u have... It's better then aircool, but when u c the set, its not worth 26€.
Ugh.. watercooling sounds good and efficient but I'd prefer not to have water running with my system. I mean, water + electricity + my graphics card = X! That's just my opinion whatever. Well, that and not knowing how good my abilities are at fixing things, yeah. Good job though. :)

Spyder F-166+ Gh/z anyone? ;).
Dream on. Only Liquid Nitrogen can cool the CPU enough to allow that sort of overclocking. I wrote a thread about some guys that did use Nitrogen to overclock to 6GHz.
New pictures :D in daylight! Well my cam just sucks a bit :uhm:
nice :D 6ghz has been achieved with a 3.6E and a 3 stage cascade (thats like 3 phase changes, eg. vapocill, prometiea) oh btw. the zalman gpu blocks are just hollow inside no channels or anything, try a silverprop HL1 or swiftech mcw 50 or the one that cools the ram too, NV-68 forgot wat brand they will be much better
