The foam-plastic frame has two tiers. One tier accommodates main components of the system.

Here they are from left to right and from top to bottom:

  • Zalman ZM-WB4 Gold CPU water-block
  • Zalman ZM-GWB3 graphics card water-block
  • Socket AM2 fastening, a back panel bracket and fittings
  • A pipe with two fittings to pump the system up
  • Closing wire
  • Two feet for the main unit and screws for them
  • Concentrate of Zalman ZM-G300 anti-corrosion liquid

We can now have a closer look at the smaller components:

The bottle with anti-corrosion coolant is 250 milliliters large:

 

The sticker on the bottle tells you that the coolant consists of propylene glycol with some anti-corrosion additive. The coolant retains its properties for 1 year and its freezing point is -9°C. I’ll tell you below how to use this coolant properly.

Here’s the mentioned user manual:

And this is the 4-meter-long pipe with an inner diameter of 8mm and with 2mm walls:

The pipe is soft and flexible, which makes the assembly process much easier. Besides the manufacturer’s name there are marks set on it every centimeter for easier measuring. Running a little ahead, I want to say that I had about 1.5 meters of pipe left after I had assembled the system. Zalman measured pipe out with a generous reserve.
