While Zalman is being quiet on exactly how the technology works, it claims to have added particles smaller than 100 nanometres to the fluid in the sealed-loop cooler. These, Zalman claims, improve the thermal conductivity of the liquid - although, again, beyond claims of nanotechnology it isn't talking specifics.
The waterblock, meanwhile, uses a micro-fin layout to speed heat transfer to the coolant with a total of 125 0.19mm fins sticking up into the flow of liquid. An integrated high-performance pump can shove said liquid through the system at a claimed 90 litres per hour flow rate.
The Reserator 3 Max's radiator measures 120mm x 145mm x 79mm, while the waterblock measures 70mm x 85mm x 37mm with the total kit coming in at 897g. Zalman claims the cooler offers a noise level of between 18.9 and 36.7dBa, depending on how fast the PWM-controlled fan is spinning. The kit includes mounts for all current Intel and AMD socket types, and comes with 1g of ZM-STG2M thermal grease.
