Water cooling: Swiftech or Innovatek

I am looking at buying my first water cooling kit. I have used air cooling solutions to overclock in the past and I am sick of all the noise :(

Could anyone tell me which of the two kits (Swiftech or Innvotek) offer the best perfomance (ie best cooling) and which is the best value?

  1. performance = innovatek
    ease of installation and fit = swiftech

    depends what you onw already (case size) and what you are looking to do... ( overclock or not)

  2. Doesn't the Innvotek system allows the MB to boot stright away?

    If it does, is there an issue with radically overclocked CPU's overheating at system startup?
  3. Innovatek has a giant copper slug in its waterblock, so an overclocked system could operate without the pump running for several minutes. Plus the kit comes with CANDY!!!

    Does swiftect retard the computer booting up? I thought that was only in phase-change systems.
  4. Both kits do not restrict mobo from booting off start up.

  5. Innovatek... the Swiftech kit has a little to small radiator for default.
    Although the Swiftech waterblocks are probably better then the Innovatek ones.
