ok well your first one is 1/4in tubing (and not a great performer)
the second is a graphics card block
the third is cheaply made and out of stock

your best bet for a good chipset cooler and many will agree are

Hmm..Most northbridge/chipset waterblocks add a bunch of restriction to the loop, and buying a nice air cooled heatsink would benefit you must more, considering that it's CPU and/or GPU temps you're after. Most chipsets like temps around the 55C range, but they'll take 60C. Usually, you can set your chipset fan in your BIOS to go full-tilt at a set temp, I usually have mine set around 25C so it's always running, and it stays around 35C. Save yourself some hassle and get a good chipset air cooler.
