I am no expert by any means so take it fwiw.

I purchased an EK waterblock. I got the nickel +acetal one.
The differences are only aesthetic between acrylic and acetal. The nickel is a coating that prevents the block from turning colors (reaction with the copper). From what i was told it wont hurt performance if it does. If its worth the few $ differences to you get nickel.

And acrylic or acetal is whatever color you prefer with your setup. I got acetal because my stuff is all black inside. They make a very high quality part.
