I'd go with the Raystorm it's Pressure vs. Flow Rate is extremely low and the price is right.

Raystorm is a great block. Out of those two it would definitely be my choice.

I've used the raystorm on both AMD and Intel and it works wonders

Another one to look at would be the DT 5Noz

DT Waterblocks

Also if your not digging the look of the top there's always the special edition model:

Either or your going to get great performance. The one thing to note is that the heatkiller does not support 3/4 O.D. compression fittings.

Raystorm or EK HF. I prefer the look of the EK but it's entirely subjective.

I think the Raystorm is a great buy, it would be top choice along with the new Swiftech Apogee HD (which I own) as well as the Koolance 370.....
