I've heard mention that the EK might perform better. And it's just such a sexy block!

From what i have read and looked at the EK will do a better job. Has more cooling potential, and looks better.

Idle or load?

you won't see a difference in the performance of these blocks, most likely you'll looking for quality of the block and EK has a better quality built compared to DD, I'd put my money on EK to worth a while!

They're both probably great blocks.

But I know Danger Den has excellent customer service.

I was going to buy a full kit from DD but they have yet to respond to several emails. Decided on EK for build quality.

There's a thread either here or over at XtremeSystems from a guy that opened his DD8800 after a few weeks and found a bunch of crap that was building up on the rough edges of the poor machining on the copper channels.
When you see the EK and the DD opened up, side by side, you'll know why everyone says get the EK. The copper channels are much deeper, the machining is beautifully crafted and the overall build quality is much much better.
The prices are comparable but the quality is not.

EK has better build quality. DD's quality is questionable.

Excellent choice, EK looks better, performs better, better quality, same price.. whats not to like?

All of the EK blocks i've seen are all beautifully crafted and designed.
