Right now i'm going to be getting the zalman reserator 1. I will be running my 3.2e prescott at 4.0 gigahertze.
I dont know how to cool my aiw 9800 pro
I'm stuck between two products using the zalman vga cooler
zmgod-hp or the zalman watter block ZM-GWB1
I want to use the water but i'm afraid there wont be enough cooloing because of my prescott
But the zm80d-hp could not provide enough cooling
i have no fans in my pc and i wanna overclock my video card prefferably to xt speed.
help !
thanks everyone

My video card is a bit smaller than yours, it's an AIW 9600 Pro overclocked to 485/365. No, I never got around to connecting my spare water block to the chipset.

Thanks
But what are your temps idle and load
Causei read a review about the zalman and it stated that will 24c air it ran 44 idle and 64 load
Isnt this really weak
I'm gonna connect the zalman up by itself only to the cpu
What kind of temps do you think i would get
Also have you ever thought of filling up your zalman with water wetter or something like that?
And last but not least in a previous post you said it was silent fron 2 feet away, If you concentrated would you hear it. How about fron 6 feet away if you concentrated
Thanks a lot, I just have to be sure about some details.
Ure a big help,
thaks again

My temps were in the review. As for noise level, the room was silent but not sound proof, you could probably hear it from 6 feet away in a sound chamber (after your ears adjusted to the quiet and you started hearing your heartbeat), but in reality you'll never get any room that quiet.

I'm assuming your computer has a hard drive. As long as it does, you won't get a chance to hear the Zalman.

No water wetter.

So that means the temps arent that good
The thing is i sleep in the room that my computer is in and i usually leave it overnight to do encoding and video editing.
The teperatures i have now is 40 idle and 56 load
so that means i'm gonna go even hotter
but i need to go coller
hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I read the review so the temps are very good
but the strange thing is the 3dgame man video review had 24 ambient 44 idle and 64 load
but they were running a 3.0 northwood at 3.8
could there have been such a teperature increase?
thanks again

Hehe, it looks bad compared to other water coolers, but that's probably due to the small, nearly silent pump. You can use a larger pump if you like. While Zalman documents using an external pump, if you really need a larger pump I'd find the largest submersible unit that would fit internally.

It performs better than most air coolers and it's silent, that's really the point. You can see in that other review that even at 170W it's running only 41C. That's only "terrible" when you compare it to extreme solutions. If you extend that graph to YOUR settup and get the same results you should still be under 50C.

I'm sold
and thats 50 with or without video cooling
Do you thiink the noise will significantly increase if i changed the pump?
I was also thinking about putting a very very low rpm large fan to blow up or down on the fan
thanks again and i appreciate this a lot

I'm looking at around 230W (max) for your CPU and video card combined, which according to their charts would put you around 50C. I of course can't verify their results as I have nothing that big to push it with.
