Hi.


For reservoirs, of the 2 you posted I would go with the Swiftech as it is a fraction of the cost, it is smaller and the mounting is quite versatile.

If you like the tube-type reservoirs, then perhaps the EK-150?

For the Radiator, I would be inclined to go with the Feser model, but I do not have numbers on thermal dissipation to make a qualified call.

If you buy new, then yes. It comes with a bracket and all the mounting hardware.

If you buy used, you will need to ask the seller specifically what is included in the sale.

The only pump they have in stock is the XSPC 200 Bay Reservoir & Pump.

I would look somewhere else or wait.

Edit: Yes, FrozenCPU is a reliable vendor.

Yeah, I've also done business with FrozenCPU before, and I've never had any problems. I stick pretty much with a few online venders when ordering computer components. NewEgg for general stuff and Petras Tech Shop for anything remotely pertaining to computer water cooling.


This is only my opinion and I realise there may be other excellent online vendors. I've only ordered from US dealers (because I live in the US) which may be a limitation


I wish I could help you on the rad question, but I'm sure there is some WC'ing guru that can
