Inside Z-Machine LQ1000

In Figure 5, you can see inside Z-Machine LQ1000. It is absolutely identical to Z-Machine GT1000, with the difference that it has the Reserator XT water-cooling system installed, of course. Where on GT1000 is the front fan, on LQ1000 you will find the control and monitoring circuit for the water-cooling system.

What is really different on the water-cooling system used by Z-Machine LQ1000 compared to other products on the market is that it uses the metallic chassis from the case as a passive heatsink to cool down the water, see Figure 6.
