Zalman is setting a new course for its Reserator water cooling line up. Instead of using bulky, heavy, and expensive passive solutions also known as Reserator series from now on Zalman will be using a combination of passive and active cooling. Hybrid cooling will result with better cooling at minimum noise levels.
The new Hybrid water cooling is a complete system that is able to monitor its work and react automatically on errors. If a critical error occurs, the AI inside the Reserator will initiate shut down procedure and save your PC. Integrated controlling system allows the user to fine tune the performance of the cooler. The cooler can work on fully automatic or manual modes. In manual mode fan and pump speed can be adjusted via large knobs on front of the chassis.
Both passive and active cooling are used to cool the coolant. The active part consists of a 140mm fan and water cooling radiator. Most of the heat will be dissipated with this part of the cooling system. A smaller amount of the heat is passively transferred from the fluid to the aluminium chassis via natural convection. As we said, combining these two solutions will yield better results than only passive solutions.
Price is yet to be announced.
