    Bottom Line: SLCentral reviewed the Zalman Reserator 1, could this be the best cooling device on the market? Maybe, at $200 it mabe expensive but JonnyGuru still gave it 10 out of 10.

    The Water Blocks

    The first thing we get to mount is the water block.  The Reserator comes with one style water block, but a low-profile version is also available. Because I'm installing in a Lian-Li PC50, Im going for the low profile block.

    The water block is VERY easy to install, and Zalman makes sure almost all users are covered by including mounting hardware for Socket A, Socket 775/478 and socket 754/939/940.  One simply installs the included bracket to the underside of the motherboard and then place the water block to the top.  After another bracket is fastened to the top, a single "bar" holds the water block down against the CPU.

    Socket A users have a catch to deal with.  Most newer boards do not have the four mounting holes indicitive of AMD's original CPU cooling reference design (Blame AMD.  THEY removed the holes.) You'll need them to mount the water block. On other motherboards, the water block really mounts no differently then any other heatsink.
