In this review we test the ZALMAN Reserator 3 MAX liquid cooler. The All-In-one kit features a 120 mm fan and copper dual-radial radiators (one inner radiator and one outer radiator). The new cooler combines two radial radiators, a circular water block, and nanofluids to cool Intel and AMD’s latest processors. The radiators route the nanofluid coolant through copper pipes that are surrounded by copper fins.
The pump is fitted over the water block and two tubes connect the block to radiator. The copper on the radiator is nickel plated in a black pearl color. A 120mm fan with blue LED is bundled with the cooler, and users have the option to set up a push-pull configuration by adding a second 120mm fan. The bundled fan is PWM controlled and spins at anywhere between 1,000 and 2,200 RPM (18.9 to 36.7 dBA).
