    Wink anyone have experience with zalman reserator?

    thinking of changing my cooling to water and seen good reviews on this.

    anyone installed one of these? how easy to install and how effective is it?

    also, would I need to drill my case for tubes or can I have them coming out of a spare PCI slot space?
    I do know everything, just not all at once. It's a virtual memory problem.

    Tubing comes out a spare pci slot. What kind of system do you have? The reserator are good for silent/near silent cooling but not good for overclocking as i have seen.

    I was on the wacc website the other day and they do something very similar to the Reserator but alot cheaper - not tried one myself, but the reviews look good (not a Hexus review though)
    Check out the kit here and the P-A Reservoir

    Personally I was considerring one of the reservoirs to add to my current watercooling system to help temps
