Zalman Reserator 1 Plus and More!
When I un-screwed the top off the Reserator and had a look inside, I was amazed to see how tiny the pump was. Seeing how small that pump was reassured my thoughts that this kit wouldn’t perform well at all. The pump specs list output at 300 LPH, or about 80 GPH, which is less than half the flow rate of my original Maze 2 setup. The system was easy to bleed after filling with coolant by lifting the Reserator assembly up above the system case. It bled out in about 20 seconds. Once you see the flow meter bobbing back and forth you know you’re good to go!

Howdy has taken a look at the Zalman Reserator 1 Plus Kit as well as a couple other accessories to make this kit completely, er. . ., uh . . . complete.  He's also posted up the results when using the RF1 kit as well as taken a look at a Norhtbridge block.  Goodbye fans, hello quiet computing.  Take a look and see if this setup is as weak as we thought.

[ed. note] It actually isn't! [/ed. note]
