Zalman Reserator 1 PLUS for cooling only GPUs?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Me and my bro were discussing his future upgrade, namely an ATI X1900XT and then later another one and were talking about how it can be overvolted simply through ATITool (a la X1800 series) without any bios flashes or anything, so we got to talking about cooling. I thought it would be a good idea to get a water cooling system only for the two X1900's but since the X18 GPU block from DD is $125 for a single graphics card I thought we could get a Zalman Reserator 1 Plus which comes with a CPU and GPU block and not use the CPU block (since his Big Typhoon performs better than the Zalman W/C) so basically we would have the reserator only cooling his X1900XT and then eventually his CrossFired X1900s but nothing else in the loop, is this an okay idea or does it sound like a ridiculous waste of money?

Anyone? Any Ideas? Will I see a big difference in my temps? or should I stick with air cooling?
