Zalman has recently announced their latest closed loop all-in-one CPU liquid cooler featuring a unique circular radiator – the Zalman Reserator 3 MAX Dual Liquid CPU Cooler. The Reserator 3 Max Dual features a large 240mm Radiator and the classic ZALMAN Omega heatsink structure, reborn and updated in its current form for the most effective radiator use in closed loop liquid cooling solutions. It also supports most of the Intel and AMD socket specially the latest one. Check out more features and specifications below.
The Zalman Reserator 3 MAX Dual features up to 400W ultra powerful cooling performance by utilizing dual radial radiators and Nano fluids. It has high performance integrated water pump and high capacity 120mm extra fan available. Its fan and water block comes with blue LED tuning effect and its heat sink is Black pearl nickel plated for corrosion prevention. It also comes with high performance thermal grease (ZM-STG2M).
The Zalman Reserator 3 MAX Dual features a slim fin pure copper radiator for increased performance; the copper is then plated with black-pearl Nickel for increased corrosion resistance and sleek aesthetics. Quad radial radiators are actually four radiators fit into the space of two, manufactured using extra slim fins for increased surface area that translates into incredible heat dissipation. Liquid flows through the radiator using four copper pipes following a highly efficient Octa cooling path system that is eight times more powerful than traditional two pipe cooling design.
It also features built in low noise, high performance pump within low profile water block for maximum liquid circulation and efficient thermal transfer. Pump capacity to move 90 liters of coolant per hour of operation. Water block CPU contact area made of pure copper and applied with micro fins for maximum heat transfer, ZALMAN ZM-STG2M high performance thermal grease is included to compliment Reserator 3 MAX Dual performance and maximize thermal conductivity between CPU and water block. Blue LED on water block and radiator fan brings a sleek look and feel to chassis interior. Maximum performance radiator fan eliminates radiator dead zones increasing the rate heat is expelled; induction of airflow inside chassis gives extra cooling efficiency to motherboard and VRM. Additional 120mm fans can be mounted for push-pull configuration.

Editor’s note: I’m curious how this all in one CPU cooler will perform against other closed loop liquid cooling solution. True, it adds eye candy to your system, but how about performance. Can it perform better against Corsair’s AIO CPU cooler or NZXT’s Kraken? Hope Zalman would send one for review.
