Ignorance. I was telling you that there is almost no way to improve your Zalman Reserator 1 v2. Only way to improve it would probably be to replace the pump inside ( don't think that will work ). And maybe like increase the tube size? (doubt that will work as well).... The Problem with the Zalman line of water cooling is that all there stuff is basically Pre-Built, meaning that upgrading to a better pump and different tubing is not going to be easy\\work.

Erm, like i keep saying is that you CAN improve them and you CAN add a new pump (like the one in my sig i want to get)

I have already suggested how to improve your system in an early post:
1) Get better blocks
2) Upgrade pump
3) Convert the res into a bong cooler.

Now, the issue is how are you measuring performance? If your room temperature is 16C, then you have a 25C delta with a your setup? That does not seem possible with other users with the same system but lighter loads. In fact, better systems with lighter loads can't achieve those temps. The question again... how are you getting those temps? We can't improve anything if you are already performing 10-20C better than any other user ever with the same setup.
Once again...

Bong coolers (tall towers) or swamp coolers (sheets of foam) use evaporation to cool. Basically, the hottest molecules of water are most likely to evaporate first. They evaporate into the environment taking the extra heat with them. You can get sub-ambient temps (only a few C at most) with passive watercooling.

For his unit.... cut off the top the the tower and that is it. The performance can be improved by building something that promotes evaporaton (like a shower head or more surface area). However, the disadvantage of a open loop is that you need to refill it and foreign particles (fungus and dust) will get into it.

I was thinking and i was already waning to get a much bigger case so i looked and thought of buying the thermaltake armor lcs or the thermaltake kandalf lcs now i dont know which is better so if anyone can help me choose they both have inbiuld liquid cooling and its much much much nocer than having one of those big heavy towers in my room

how does "don't use their system's they both are poor" grab you? just build one your self, they can be had for cheaper and will run better than your Zalman reservoir or either of those cases will run.

You will need at the very least:
1x pump
1x CPU waterblock
1x Radiator
Tubing that will fit the waterblock/pump/Radiator
2x worm clamps for each item I listed (one for the inlet, one for the outlet) plus 2 for every other item you add.

You would need more blocks if you wanted to cool your chip set, memory, hard drives etc.

You will need a big radiator for your quad core plus the 8800.

Good question, I guess you could buy expensive **** that doesn't perform too well like these items:

http://www.xoxide.com/thermaltake-ar...ve2000bws.html
http://www.xoxide.com/thermaltake-ka...vd4000bws.html

Just because it is pre-built doesn't mean it is high quality. Buy a good case for $150, then a good radiator (thermaltakes one don't perform nearly as well as the other radiator companies products) good pump from Laing, DangerDen, swiftech etc. Finally get a good water block (the Thermaltake ones are unlevel and need a massive lapping job) from Dangerden or swiftech.

Are you talking to me? I said you should run seperate loops TO IMPROVE YOUR TEMPERATURES. Where am I off topic?

Yes. I just revived this thread.
