Probably the HK but they are both very good and close performance wise.

The Apogee GTZ will only cool your CPU 1 degree celcius less.
That was tested on an i7 though, I have a Q6600.

Heatkiller. With out a doubt. You saw the review, here is a poll I did a while back. I actually added all the heatkiller votes together in the in for my personal results. It doesnt matter the version, because they are all so close to the same. Its the company that won, and the blocks all do great. Hope it helps.

Look here.

I've heard that the pump in there is fine for a CPU only loop like mine, and if I ever upgrade to GPU and more I can then buy another pump.
