I have a half-inch system with a:

maxijet 1200
chevette heatercore
Dangerden GF3 waterblock.

So which CPU block would be better.

It's hard to go wrong with either of those you are considering. The Gemini will offer slightly higher flow resistance due to the smaller barb. If that is an issue to you, then get the Spir@l. The workmanship on both is very good.

I have a high flow gemini now, and I can get a spir@l for 25. Should I upgrade?

A spir@l is what moves my heat,
Though Gem'ni I thought might be sweet,
I've no reason to change,
and my spir@l estrange,
(and my budget's becoming mincemeat.)

Ok where is the spiral for 25 dollars? I have my mind on the high flow or the Maze 3, to bad Canthars WW is 100 dollars.
