What Nemesia said.
Performance will be similar. After that, it's on you.
I'm sure some of us will favor the Galahad, others the Liquid Freezer.

... what would you do in my situation for the white build?
A white build, hmm...
I look at it like this:
-Go with the Galahad, because most of the white model is white. Silver/gray are neutral colors anyway, so I think it'll complement the overall look.
-Go with the LF II, because the black will contrast with the white in your build.

Hmm... ok, that probably didn't help either, LOL!

I think imma go with the Galahad but the whine they were complaining about is that on every Galahad or just the one they got because I hate whine

It's likely the one they got - there's also how they have the unit mounted in their chassis.
A big unit like that mounted in the front would see inevitable gurgling or running water sounds over time.

As someone who has tested both coolers (or versions of both)

The Arctic Liquid Freezer II's are heavier and feel like they are of better quality when you view them close up.

The Lian Li cooler is just another AIO and if you took the plastic face and logos off and replaced with say, Cooler Master, you probably wouldn't ever know the difference.
