ZALMAN RESERATOR 2 INTRODUCTION
Generally speaking, people look to liquid cooling for one of two reasons, more overclocking headroom or less noise. Given Zalman's reputation for quiet cooling solutions, it's not surprising that their new, improved Reserator 2 liquid cooling system targets the latter group. Zalman has never been afraid to target smaller niche markets with their products and this kit is a good example of this. The Reserator 2 actually represents the third generation of this product. The Reserator 2 kit differs from the original Reserators in almost every respect. I've previously reviewed Zalman's Reserator 1 Plus kit (Review can be found HERE .
) and I was pretty satisfied with it. It gave adequate cooling performance and was essentially silent. There were, however, a few niggling issues with the Plus kit that I felt could be improved. I'm anxious to see what changes Zalman has made and how these changes affect performance.
