Hey Allen,

I'm not an expert, but, going from reviews, here's my free opinion.


Being external, the Reserator is about as easy to install as WC comes, and completely silent, but only adequate in cooling--fine for stock speeds in moderate ambient temps only. cnet recommends its for first time users. Early users had pump problems--I don't know if this has been cured in newer units. Get it if you value silence and easy install over all else.

Gigabyte--easy install, pump a bit noisy and bulky, surprisingly good performance for an entry level kit--maybe a degree or two C better than BigWater. At least one member here recommends it.

BigWater -- quiet, compact, easy to install, surprisingly good performance for an entry-level kit. I bought the SE, and will review it once I've checked it out.

I hope this helps, and have fun!
