radiators which one is the best?????

im looking for a new radiator to install in a new case im getting, but im looking at the Thermochill HE120.3, the Black Ice Xtreme II, or another Innovatek Dual Fan 120mm Radiator.

specs for the Thermochill HE120.3

# Copper / brass construction with turn coat shrouds.
# Use with 3/8" ID or 1/2" ID Hose (Shipped loose with pre-applied Teflon tape to threads).
# Unique dual fan shroud gives total air seal even between the fans!! No air as with other designs.
# Pre-punched shroud holes for perfect hole alignment!
# Radiator can run up to 6 x 120mm fans in push / pull config or one side of shroud can be used for mounting.
# 10mm shroud standoff to minimize dead zone.
# Unique silver soldered bleed inserts for bleeding off collected air & maintaining performance.
# Overall dimensions HxWxD = 419x126x50mm..
# Radiator ships with single side fan screws & a spare bleed washer.
# Capable of dissipating 550W of heat at a 10°C coolant / air differential, more if differential is increased.
# 0.015°C/

specs for the Black Ice Xtreme II

* 2-pass Double-row Low Pressure Drop Radiator specifically developed for PC Watercooling based on the new high-performance Black Ice Xtreme design.
* Xtreme performance: rated for 1580KCal per hour (6270 BTU per hour).
* Double Row 240 mm (9.44 inch) Copper core consisting of flat tubes for maximum heat conductivity
* High-density louvered copper fin configuration for enhanced heat dissipation.
* Built-in plenum chamber for increased performance and noise reduction.
* Self-tapping and case mounting holes for easy installation of 120mm fans.
* Now with 12.5 mm (1/2 inch) pre-angled inlet/outlet barbed hose connectors.
* Optimal 273.4 x 133 x 45 mm (10.75 x 5.25 x 1.77 inch) dimensions allows it to fit inside most mid-tower cases.
* Designed to meet the performance demands of hardcore Xtreme PC watercooling enthusiasts.

specs for the Innovatek dual 120

HE fine fins of the radiators provide optimal heat emission to the cooling air, without obstructing the air flow.
Further the air flow of the fan is optimally used by the integrated fan housing, this pre-chamber allows the whole surface of the radiator to be flowed around by the cooling air. In addition this measure contributes to the reduction of air flow noises - therefore the radiator is very quiet .

The fan can be fastened both to front or back of the radiator and the radiator has various mounting possibilities within the PC case.
- Size (lxwxh): 320x145x45mm (without fan)

- All aluminum construction

- Weight without fan: 1000g

- Compression fittings: 8mm (5/16") ID x 10mm (3/8") OD

but i currently own one innovatek dual 120 and very pleased with its performance but im looking for some openions on the thermochill or the black ice, im leaning toward the thermochill because i want to put it in the top of my new case kind of like this case if found in the case mod galary
