Default Reserator 1 v2 video card compatibility

Hello

I jave just bought a watercooling system Reserator 1 v2.
I would like to know if exists on the market a compatible videocard, from witch i can remove the fan
and put the reserator's vga block, ZM-GWB3, on it. So could you give me models of videocards,
i want a new videocard, one whitch is still in production.

If there are none, is there another VGA block of zalman than i can connect to the Reserator and use with a
videocard with is in production, whitch i can buy ?

Ii necessary i can buy also a VGA RAM Block.

Actually i have a ATI SAPHIRE HD 4670, but i think it's not compatible, isn't it ?

So if there is a solution to connect my Reserator to a new videocard, even if i have to by other VGA blocks,
could you give me the name of the model of the videocard (and ther name of other VGA block if necessary)

Also , can you tel me if the reserator pump will make more noise if i connect the system to the video card ?
(I want to connect it to the cpu and the nord bridge as well)

Thank you.

The ZM-GWB3 should fit almost any video card.

No, there are heat sinks you can attach to the VGA memory.

That would be a question for Zalman.

No, it will not make more noise.

Thank you.
What CPU are you cooling now? How are your temperatures?
How are the temps with a heavy CPU load. for example with OCCT or Orthos?

I'm affraid to say that the Reserators don't really have a lot of heat removal capability, and cooling a CPU, GPU and northbridge all together could be more than a Reserator can handle.

Swiftech, Danger Den, Enzotech, Frozen CPU, Performance-PC, and Petra's all manufacture or sell a wide range of water cooling parts.

My priority is NOT low temperature and performance for overcloking, but LOW NOISE.

Do you think Reserator can handle good enough the cooling of these components without any overclooking, just to keep working ?

-Intel core duo 3.0 ghz
-Norht bridge
-ATI Radeon HD3850 (don't have it yet i am planning to buy it since Zalman sell a -VGA block compatible for it)
-2 case noctua 120 fans, at 600 rpm (do you think i can turn them off ???????)
-low heat power suppply with fan automatically triggered only when heat rise

Thanx

My guess is that you'll be OK. Maybe pretty warm though.

I'd be wary of turning off case fans. You still have to cool the MB, HDD(s), optical drive(s) and memory.

Try Hardware Monitor to check temps.
