Hi Guys,

This is a question  that is really bugging me and i need some help with it, If you want to know what my rig is like then i made a post in the "rig" section, sorry but i cant remember the exact name of the section.  Anyways, my question is this.  Scene as i have a Thermaltake Armor LCS super tower case, 1200W thermaltake modular PSU and an Asus Maximus formula SE motherboard i am checking out other cooling solutions scene as my motherboards fusion block is currently air cooled due to the lack of room in the case and that i am looking to upgrade from stock water cooling.

 What i was considering doing is buying either the Zalman Resorator 1 V2 external water cooling system or the Zalman Resorator XT Hybrid Liquid Cooling System, however i cant make up my mind on which to go for.

 I came here to seek advice and help on the topic so any remarks, ideas or suggestions are welcome,

I personally like the V2 reason is because is kind of style to look like a fan not something that looks like a mini computer if you know what i mean. Hopefully the review would explain you more and clear those "buying thoughts"

I could only ever recommend the resorator if you are looking for a quiet pc with little to no overlocking head room.  If you plan on getting a performance cooler then dont even bother.  The pump is rather weak with very little head pressure and most of the parts are aluminum.

newls1 over at Petra's makes some pretty nice custom external boxes if your looking for something good.  Most of the boxes use Swiftech rads with Laing pumps.  Not the nicest looking solution but very effective.
