With the Aquagate Cooler Master has brought water-cooling down out of the elitist market to the average enthusiast. It is amazingly easy to install and, while I do not have the resources available to compare the unit to more traditional water-cooling setups, the Aquagate performs remarkably well for being packed into such a small enclosure. Will it perform as well as some other high-end water cooling options? Probably not, but that's not really the point of the Aquagate. It was designed for low-maintenance, to be easy to install, and flexible enough to work with just about any system. Most water-cooling systems and kits can't rightfully claim any of those attributes but the Aquagate effectively pulls off all three.
FULL REVIEW...

Good
Easy to install
Versatile, can be used with just about any setup
Good performance
Quiet
Aesthetically pleasing
Lots of mounting options

Bad
Adjusting the alarm settings is a pain
Small diameter tubing
Some ill-advised instructions and important omissions in the install guide
Can't mount backwards in a second PSU bay
