    Ok, i know the first thing everyone is thinking is ZALMAN!, but for a second opinion which will give me better cooling performance a reserator 1 or a Thermalright SP-97 with a Vantec Tornado? i have the funds for water but i can save a few bucks buying ait cooling.

    Bit of a sweeping statement there. It hardly sucks, my P4 3.0c runs no hotter than 48C on it, overclocked or not. And in absolute silence I might add.

    My 2500+ Barton runs at around 35 with the zalman so i'm definitely happy with it. The silence is bliss. Voted accordingly.

    its not that i can't afford it. its that my parents don't understand what it does and why it costs £200.

    id say the reserator would be a good choice if you had money to burn.


    Im trying to source one at the mo so i can use it as a Reservior :p, rip out the pump and just use it as a giant res :p should do the job :p

    I'd say the reserator too.

    You could tell your parents that it's like supercharging a car. That's what I did till my dad got partways bit by the quiet cooling bug.

    Why do you need to tell him about it? Is it because he has a Visa and you don't?

    I don't like the complete Reserator kit, I would just use it as a reservoir.
