PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES


This is a complete kit, so there are a lot of components. The kit we're looking at today comes with CPU and VGA coolers only, but there are many upgrades available. The following specifications and features are from the Zalman website.



Reserator (Reservoir+Radiator+ Water Pump ) :


”Reserator” is a compound word derived from ‘Reservoir' and ‘Radiator'- it acts as a reservoir while radiating heat. This product works well with natural convection and integrates a water pump inside for convenience. It incorporates a coolant flow sensor as well as the Flow Indicator in the front, for safe and convenient use.


• Dissipation Area: 1.5 m2
• Weight: 7kg
• Dimensions: 76(L) x 436(W) x 369(H) mm
• Material: Anodized Pure Aluminum
• Coolant Capacity: Max. 1.25L
• Integrated Water Pump: 5 W, Qmax 300L/h
  (A type: 230V-50Hz, B type: 120V-60Hz, C type: 220V-60Hz, D type: 110V-60Hz)
• Maximum Lift: 0.5m


CPU Water Block (ZM-WB4 Gold) :


The CPU Water Block incorporates a pure copper base for excellent heat transfer, and has gold plating to prevent corrosion. It supports Pentium 4 Socket 775/478 CPU & AMD Socket 462/754/939/940 CPU, and is designed to be lightweight and easy to install.


• Weight: 135g (Water Block)
• Dimensions: 63(L) x 63(W) x 16.5(H) mm
• Material: Polycarbonate Cover, Gold Plated Pure Copper Base
• Compatibility: Intel Pentium 4 (Socket 775/478), AMD Sempron/AMD64 (Athlon 64/Athlon 64 FX/Opteron) (Socket AM2/754/939/940)
   

VGA Water Block (ZM-GWB3) :


The VGA Water Block incorporates a light weight pure aluminum base for high cooling performance, and is anodized and coated to prevent corrosion. It also incorporates pivoting fittings for easy installation of hoses.


• Weight: 100g
• Dimensions: 60.4(L) X 60.4(W) X 30(H) mm
• Material: Anodized Pure Aluminum
• Compatibility: Graphics cards with heatsink mounting holes


Flow Indicator :


This component is connected with the circulation tube for checking the circulation of the coolant. When the coolant is actively circulating, its impeller rotates and the blue LED is brightly lit, providing easy indication of the circulation status.


Anti-Corrosion Coolant (ZM-G300) :


This coolant contains a high quality anti-corrosion agent for various materials including copper, aluminum, and plastic, that prevents corrosion for long term operation.


• Material: Propylene Glycol & Anti-Corrosion Agent
• Weight: 250ml
• Freezing Point: -9°C
• Exchange Cycle: 1 year


Quick Coupling :


The Fittings incorporate valves that prevent leaks when disconnecting the PVC Tubes allowing quick, convenient separation and reassembly of the Reserator for transport and coolant replacement.


The pump and quick couplings are the only things left unchanged from the Reserator 1 Plus.



This exploded diagram gives a better idea of how the various components fit together.



Wide compatibility is a hallmark of Zalman designs, and the VGA waterblock is no exception.
