It has to be said that this Zalman Reserator 1 heatsink is very well made and very well finished. Looks rather stunning more like a work of art than a computer CPU heatsink. Pitty it does not come in other colours such as say green or aluminium as well.
The Zalman Reserator 1 really needs is a large slow spinning fan to be built into the base of the Zalman Reserator 1 water tower to gently blow cool air up the side of the heatsink water tower to cool it. Only a little design effort would be needed at the Zalman factory which would not make the base look stupid and with a suitable fan spinning slowly it would not make much noise either. Unfortunately just directing a fan at one side of the Zalman Reserator 1 water tower will not really help that much as you are only cooling one side.
We would like to see slightly smaller diameter pipes because with only the small flow rate by the pump the large tubes with this Zalman Reserator 1 are unnecessary and just too big which clutter up the desk. Small tubes again coloured to suit would not be noticed so much.
It would be a great idea if the Zalman Reserator 1 water pump was 12 volts so that it could be run off the computer power suppy so that it comes on and goes off with the computer saving you the hassel of turning it on and off. This is one of the great little things we love with the Thermaltake Aquarius III and also that we tapped off power to power our additional external radiator fans.
We are only sorry that our tests have shown that this otherwise striking and inovative design Zalman Reserator 1 water cooled heatsink system is not in its present design up to the cooling performance from competing water cooled heatsink systems. The simple addition of a fan in the base of the Zalman Reserator 1 water tower is all that is needed.
