Zalman Reserator XT External Water Cooling System Video Review

Review #867 reviewed Thursday, August 13th, 2009 - 1 Comments

The Zalman Reserator XT External Water Cooling System performs very well, is super easy to install and very compact. If you are looking for a compact water cooling system that is on par with some of the separate hardcore water cooling kits, I would strongly recommend you check out this product. With a 120mm fan, 120mm radiator, 500L/hr pump and newly designed solid copper CPU water block, it's extremely impressive. This unit also comes with quick connect couplings. These quick connect couplings enable easy connection and disconnection of tubes.

Swiftech H20-120 Compact Water Cooling Video Review

Review #857 reviewed Thursday, August 13th, 2009 - 0 Comments

The Swiftech H20-120 Compact Water Cooling combines the waterblock and pump together and the radiator and reservoir together. This simplifies the traditional four-component loop into just two-components. This reduces the space required for installation and it tremendously simplifies the installation process over most water cooling kits. The combination of high quality components sets this kit apart from others in the same category. While this kit will not outperform some of the four-component water cooling systems, it will outperform air coolers by a long shot.

Cooler Master Aquagate S1 Water Cooling System Video Review

Review #840 reviewed Thursday, August 13th, 2009 - 0 Comments

Many people are intimated by water cooling because they don't want liquid spilling all over their hardware components. This is a concern, especially if you are piecing together a water cooling system yourself. If you chose to do that, you have to be 100% sure that it's not going to leak. This is not so much of a concern with the Cooler Master Aquagate S1 Water Cooling System because everything is pre-connected. This kit does perform reasonable well, it's affordable and installation is extremely simple. The only pitfall to this kit is the small pump which makes an annoying loud buzzing sound.

Ultra ChillTec Thermo Electric CPU Cooler Video Review

Review #790 reviewed Thursday, August 13th, 2009 - 0 Comments

Thermo-Electric Coolers (TEC) have been around for some time, but recently there are a lot of cooling products implementing them. This makes sense because processors are getting faster and more effective cooling devices are required to cool them. The Ultra ChillTec Thermo Electric CPU Cooler performs very well, even on a highly overclocked CPU. It has a clear advantage over standard coolers.

Zalman Reserator 2 Water Cooling System Video Review

Review #783 reviewed Thursday, August 13th, 2009 - 0 Comments

The Zalman Reserator 2 Water Cooling System is the next installment in the Reserator line. The Reserator V2 is quiet different looking than their pervious Reserator 1, but it has many of the same key features. The exterior of the Reserator 2 is basically a very large aluminum heatsink with many fins. This design works very and will have no problem radiating heat without the use of fans. Being fanless is the big plus with this water cooling setup because it means effective silent cooling. Watch the video to find out more and check out the bloopers at the end.

CoolIT Eliminator CPU Cooler (TEC) Video Review

Review #769 reviewed Thursday, August 13th, 2009 - 0 Comments

This is CoolIT's second Thermal Electric Cooler (TEC); the first one was the Freezone. I've video reviewed the Freezone and thought it was excellent, but I like the Eliminator even more. They've incorporated everything into one unit, which makes it easier to install than the Freezone. You can also manually adjust the fan speed to suit your needs. It's definitely a great alternative to some complicated water cooling setups. Watch the Video to find out more...

Review #768 reviewed Thursday, August 13th, 2009 - 1 Comments

Swiftech has done a fantastic job at selecting and installing their water cooling components into the Antec P180 Case.

Included is the Apogee CPU waterblock, MCP350 Pump, MCR120-QP Radiator, MCRes Micro Reservoir, 3/8" A-60 Norprene™ tubing and Hydrx™ coolant. An excellent product that performs very well.

CoolIT Freezone CPU Cooler (TEC) Video Review

Review #746 reviewed Saturday, August 15th, 2009 - 0 Comments

The CoolIT Freezone CPU Cooler performs great, is easy to install, very quiet, and looks great. I really love how they've implemented the peltier reservoirs. Normally you'll see them implemented on a heatsink or right on the waterblock. The way this liquid cooling system is designed makes it work very well. I suspect there will be many more products in the near future using thermoelectric coolers. Watch the Video to find out more...
