Zalman LQ1000 Z-Machine Hybrid Liquid Cooled Case (w/WB5+)

Reserator XT meets GT1000. Zalman’s first gaming case with built-in water cooling.

All LQ1000 systems sold by Quiet PC since 8th April 2009 have been supplied with Zalman’s new ZM-WB5 Plus CPU waterblock (as well as the original ZM-WB5), which means they are Intel LGA1366 (Core i7) compatible.


Zalman’s elegant LQ1000 is an amalgamation of the Z-Machine GT1000 chassis and the Reserator XT. The case incorporates everything a total watercooling solution requires. Pump, tubing, radiator, coolant, reservoir and ZM-WB5+ CPU water block are all supplied, in fact all you need to complete the build is water and a few components of course!

LQ1000 Contents and Features

The LQ1000 - CPU Waterblock, the ZM-WB5 Plus

The ZM-WB5 Plus is Zalman’s latest and best-yet CPU water block. It incorporates a pure copper base for excellent heat transfer, and the cover has been anodised to prevent corrosion. The ZM-WB5 Plus supports Intel Socket 1366 and 775 and AMD Socket 754/939/940/AM2/AM2+/AM3 CPUs, and is designed to be lightweight and easy to install.

More Information

The LQ1000 - Anti-corrosion coolant, ZM-G300

The anti-corrosion coolant supplied with the LQ1000 has been designed to prevent corrosion not only to the LQ1000 but also other materials it comes into contact with, such as copper, aluminium and plastic. This provides peace of mind for long-term operation. It is to be used in conjunction with distilled water only! The coolant provided with the LQ1000 is the ZM-G300. This is exactly the same as the ZM-G200 except the bottle contains only half the amount, because the LQ1000 has a smaller radiator capacity.


The LQ1000 - Temperature gauge

This gauge displays the internal temperature, water temperature, water level, and mode. The black background and wine colour details intensify the LQ1000’s striking aesthetics.


The LQ1000 - Flow rate indicator

At either side of the temperature gauge is an analogue display. The left display shows fan speed while the right displays coolant flow rate.


The LQ1000 - control buttons

These buttons allow the user to switch between automatic or manual control. This provides the greatest flexibility. There is also a power LED and reset button.


LQ1000 Optional Extras (to be purchased separately)

The LQ1000 - VGA Waterblocks

Zalman have made available a range of waterblocks for a multitude of graphics cards. The blocks cleverly cool not only the main GPU but also the other components around the graphics card, such as the memory, FET and I/O chipset. The blocks are low profile and so won’t obstruct adjacent slots.

The LQ1000 - ZM-NWB1

This anodised aluminium Northbridge water block is an ideal replacement for a Northbridge cooler that has a small noisy fan installed. The block attaches to the motherboard by using push-pin holes or hooks.

Reviews

  • Total PC Gaming magazine

    “Only the best materials have been used along with ta conscious effort to keep the whole thing as solid as possible. Zalman’s amazing pre-water cooled tower is a class apart from the competition. Editor’s Choice - 9/10.”

  • bit-tech.net

    “The LQ1000 offers an admittedly expensive, but fantastically well executed, stylish and easy route into the wonderful world of watercooling. It won’t be for everyone, but then neither is chocolate sauce and chips, but for the few who are willing to drop £400 on a new premium case and water-cooling setup, the LQ1000 is a very high quality bit of kit that’s well worth considering.”

  • IT Reviewed.co.uk

    “Stunning craftsmanship; innovative built-in liquid cooling system; comprehensive on-board monitoring & display system; automatic or manual control of cooling performance & noise; runs quietly...a dream for advanced users: 9/10, Editor’s Choice.”

  • PC Gamer Magazine

    “This takes the ludicrously tough and well built GT1000 chassis - made from 5mm plates of aluminium to double up as a passive heatsink and stop bullets - and puts a Reserator XT water cooler inside. The result is stunning. It looks awesome, it’s roomy and easy to work in, is quiet and it’s more effective than a standalone Reserator thanks to that extra fan. 89% (group winner).”
