    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.

    Overclocking issues with low profile water block:

    Now that the air-flow problem had been addressed, let's go back to those two water blocks and how they fair with overclocking.

    With the low profile water block, I'm able to maintain a cooler temperature, but any overclocking I did required a voltage bump and this immediately caused the temperatures to rise and the PC locked up often in Windows at pretty much ANY SPEED above stock. The "stock," large water block that came with the Reserator would actually keep the CPU cooler REGARDLESS of CPU core voltage and I was able to get a stable 10% overclock without any increase in temperature.

    Unfortunately, the larger water block put the hoses so close to the power supply in the PC50 case, I was afraid that they would kink and that's about the worst thing you can do in a water cooling system (besides fry your pump.) So I went with the low profile cooler and a new case is DEFINITELY on the horizon.
