Default Swiftech or Koolance

I have the chance to buy either a Swiftech H2O-8500 or Koolance Exos kit. Which one would you guys get?

well swiftec has alot, and i do mean alot i mean OMFG alot better quality blocks, but hte exos isnt a bad solution, my frined uses koolance radiator and swiftec pump/blocks and he reduced his temp alot.

btw koolance blocks are such crap, dont even mess with them, all swiftec air beats the crap out of koolances 'water' blocks.
