Ok, I need some help making a decision, and hopefully you guys can enlighten me as to which of these cpu coolers I want to get for my rig.  Its a tough decision but I am looking for something that will keep my cpu nice and cold, both of these should do that pretty well, but I also want it to be really quiet.  My Water cooling kit now makes alot of noise with the fan blowing against the raiator, and its a cheap kit,  Here are links to the products.

The TT subzero4g is crap.... sure it sounds great an all... but tec and heatsinks dont mix well.  There has been numeruos threads on here about this.  I'm sure your've seen those posts though.

That and I'm not a thermaltake fan (pun intended) at all...

I dont know anything about the Asetek Waterchill, but I woudl just get a decent kit or put your own together with a nice 120mm fan on the radiator... that should be very near silent while still cooling well...

The asetek waterchill is a great kit.  you can set it to run at 7v and its extremely quiet, while still being cool.  Its one of the better quiet kits i've seen.

I would not get the thermaltake subzero4g.  Its terrible.  ripoff central.

well, yknow, I have had TT hsf's and havent really liked them much, but that new thing looked kinda neat, I guess I rule it out, it seems that nobody has anything good to say about it.  I really like the waterchill from the review I read it sounds like just getting it in kitform will give me the best preformance, and I wont have to get one of those spiffy criticool powerplants.  Any other suggestions?
