Chiller??? Teco 1/5 or 1/10

I'm looking at chillers before the weather warms up. My priorities are noise, size and reliability. Does anybody have any experience with Teco's I've gotten a recomendation for Oceanic but I can't seem to find a dba rating any where. I run a 90 with a 20 gallon sump. Teco recomends the 1/8 for this size set up but I'm thinking about the 1/5th. I've read a larger chiller will run for less time equaling, noise less often and less wear and tear on equipment. Since the 1/8 runs at 200w and the 1/5th runs 350 watts I'm curious if anyone knows which will be cheaper on the power bill?
