Default Liquid Cooling Flow Indicators

anyone know of a good flow indicator for my new rig?

there's this one by thermaltake:

and this one by zalman:

I dont really care about the price difference, I'm more worried about the pressure drop caused by each one (putting unnes stress on my pump)
i've got the Coolmaster 80

The Thermaltake indicator accepts 1/4-1/2" ID tubing while the Zalman only takes 3/8". The Thermaltake makes a 90* turn, which will prob cause a big press drop,as opposed to the Zalman's straight flow design.... but the bigger ID may counter act that. anyone got some advice, or am i gonna have to do the calculations myself?

p.s. the ID of my system is 1/4"
