Right, "herr!"

It held its own against a high-speed fan-blown SP-94. Kudos to Zalman!

Hmmmm ive always thought that the reserator wasnt a brilliant product and am still a little skeptical after reading that review.

I think its not unreasonable to say that it was a very untechnical review with not much information about the testbed like how many other fans were in the system, or even mention of ambient temperatures. Also variables such as airflow around the reserator tank would play crucial roles in teh temperatures especially if its next to a window. etc...

Temperature wise it dosent look good at all! I understand that hes overclocked and running a prescott but cooling wise it dosent rival any radiator setup on a virtually just as silent setup (rad fan on 5v on my machine will probably beat those temps hands down) - also without the huge inconvenience of having that huge thing on your desk.

Upgradability for that thing is also next to NIL with unorthadox tube sizes.

Watercooled for Silence
