    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.

    Today I'm writing about what I personally feel may be the best cooling device on the market.  I wanted to quiet down the PC in our bedroom, so I ran out and bought the Zalman Reserator 1.  I must say that I've been nothing but tickled with my new toy.

    Water cooling has typically been thought of as something that only mega-geeks and overclockers can appreciate, but the Zalman Reserator has NO FANS and a completely silent water pump, so now we can add people that just want an absolutely quiet PC to the list of potential water cooling users.

    The unit I have is the"Reserator 1."  This product has been replaced with the "Reserator 1 Plus" and with many added features that make it's release quite welcome.

    The "1 Plus" comes with the otherwise optional VGA water block, quick-disconnect couplers and an I/O bracket to send the hoses through the back of the case.  The plain "Reserator 1" comes with none of these additional items, although they can be added, and the hoses are sent through the back of the case by simply screwing fittings into an open slot (you'll see the photos later.)
