PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
Wide compatibility and convenient mounting hardware are the norm with Zalman products and the ZM-NWB1 is no exception. While this block is designed with the Reserator system in mind, it will work with most any liquid cooling setup with compatible tubing.
For around 25 to 30 bucks, you'll get a nice retail package containing the ZM-NWB1 block and its associated accessories.
The box is compact and doesn't give much in the way of graphics,but…
…the back of the package has the specifications and installation information.
PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH
Inside the box, we find the block itself, a Zalman sticker, some thermal grease and the mounting hardware. We'll go over the various mounting options a little later.
Removing four screws lets us have a peek inside. Nothing special, really. Just a flat chamber with an o-ring seal.
