The Reserator uses AC power. It turns on and off through a simple switch attached to the power cable. For users who keep their computer on 24/7, keeping the Reserator also on 24/7 is a no brainer and this type of power connection works perfectly fine. For others who do not keep their computers on all the time and would feel insecure of the Reserator running 24/7 - they have the option of turning the unit on and off along with their computer, but obviously this can be a hassle and dangerous if for some reason they forget to turn the unit on.
These are all the parts that the water block package comes with. Included is the block, mounting kits for the sockets it supports, an instruction manual, and a small tube of white thermal paste. We'll go over installation in the next section.
Clearly the gold plated base is very well polished. Running my fingernail across the surface, it is totally smooth. There are no abnormal marks or lines either. The water block is constructed of four removable pieces: the copper base/core, aluminum cover, and two 3/8" fittings. O rings between every piece keep the block sealed.
This picture shows the inside of the block through one of holes for the 3/8" compression fittings that have been removed. You can see how the copper rises in the center of the block in circular layers which provides greater surface area. Following are some of the other parts that come with the Reserator.
The four things shown in center are tube clips for disconnecting the Reserator to transport it when it has been filled with water.
The silicone tubing is great for new water cooling users. It is very flexible and perhaps its only downfall is that it is not see through (unless you prefer the blue tubing which would make it a plus!).
