I'm trying to set up my first watercooled computer, and I can't seem to find any good comparison between the two waterblocks that I'm most interested in--the Swiftech MCW-5000A and the D-Tek TC-4. Does anyone know which is the better block?

I'm running an T-bred B 1700+ that I've overclocked to 2400+. As for the rest of the watercooling, I'm using a Danner 3 pump, a heatercore from a Caprice (a little bigger than the chevette cores), and I'm sticking the rad/fans/pump into an old 286 computer case I have laying around.

And please don't tell me to make my own wb, I don't have the time/machinery/experience to do it. And even though I'd love to have a whitewater, I'm finding it a little pricey for my budget. Thanks.

I have had really good results with innovatek rev 3s in both of my watercooled computers.
