Zalman Reserator

They seem to be very effective, i think i would use the TNN 500A with the Aquagate and the Reserator for my perfect cooling solution.

That thing is huge! And probably costs a bomb...

Probably but its still very very cool (literally) and far cheaper than VapoCill cases. Knocking on at 0„5 500 for the case, no PSU. You eve have to pay extra for a little coloured badge.

So would you need to get a pump, that reserator and a VGA/CPU block for a water cooling system ?

You would use the Aquagate for your CPU and use the Reserator for your GPU and HDDs, it would need a bit of fiddling but it would be nice and effective.

Is the reserator all you need then, nothing else ?

Yeah you can just hook that up to your CPU and then in series with your GPU.

Ok, i don't know much about water cooling and i'm thinking about doing it, so would you recommend this or something else. I've seen water cooling packs and they seem to have a lot of different items in them. Why does this one not ?

Ok thanks for the advice. But I'm not looking to drop $200 on a water cool system. Is there a good heatsink/fan combo that would be better then the stock one that Intel sends.
