Well, on their web site, Reserator 1 v2 and Reserator XT are still being showcased. To be honest, I always thought that if I ever needed to move, I'd move to XT, certainly not to 1. The XT on the other hand has a pretty inefficient design. No natural convection, everything has to be done by that fan. I like the gauges though
I agree Olle P, I may have done something wrong, though I can't imagine what. The only plastic that was cut from the indicator was the melted casing for the metal weights. Maybe I painted the iron weight too thick and now it isn't detected by the sensor any more. I can say that the indicator has some 1mm of room inside the clear plastic casing. That much it can move away from the sensor. But my guess is that the hydrodynamics of the indicator itself automatically push it against the outside plastic. That is to the maximum possible distance away from the sensor. Since I haven't painted that side of the indicator, I also don't see how that would be farther than before.
But I still don't see how the Res worked for two weeks than suddenly just stopped. My bet is on failed sensor. I did no irreversible repairs on the unit. Everything that was done can be undone at any time. Well, except for the protective paint on the indicator.
Perhaps it's now the time to actually pick up the phone and call the Korean office for some support. I'd send a mail, but they don't ever reply.
By support I mean telling my supplier to replace this unit with something that would actually work, even if it means a Res 1 unit.
Too bad only Zalman uses aluminum in their water cooling stuff. Pretty much everyting else is copper, at least the stuff I can get in Slovenia. This limits options quite a lot.
