XIGMATEK S1283V Dark Knight Vs Zalman Reserator 1 v2

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I currently own a zalman reserator 1 v2 but am thinking it's just not needed... Cooling just the CPU a Q9450 at stock 2.66ghz idle is 35c and load is 50c.

I'm wondering would I benefit from the XIGMATEK S1283V Dark Knight or am better keeping the res ?

oh and ambient temps are 20+ (attic bedroom) :/

What were temps with the reserator? I had the Xigmatek S1283V Dark Knight as well for my e8400 OC @ 4ghz and I thought it was great. Mine never went above 60+. In my opinion conventional water cooling with pump is better than just a reservoir (passive). just my 2 cents. Hope this helps.

Would I get better temps with a XIGMATEK S1283V Dark Knight or pretty much the same?
