    The seller says XS coolers dont last in that AD. Must be a NEWB.

    huh, the BOV eliminates HP loss due to heat soak? um, that's news to me. let's see some proof of that.

    Looks like a Gen 1 BUT i doubt it..The Gen ones were replaced by the Gen 2s.NOW you can get cheap knock offs of the Gen ones but thats what they are,Cheap..I also see two tabs on the back of that one..Gen ones do not come with that...Also the Gen ones dont come polished so if its a Gen one then hes polishing it...Correct on the pressure testing..IF it is indeed a Gen one then hopefully its brand new or I would stay away from it not knowing were it came from..They are know for leaking especially if ran in salt water..

    I think Scott is right, that does not look like a Riva/Vortech IC, looks like a clone. The bracket and IC blockoff look more like Riva stuff, but overall, the kit is not Riva.

    If its a Gen 1 or a knock off like in the picture, Then i would reconsider buying it..If its a Gen 2 or XS then you should be OK..
