Intercoolers - Which is better / black or silver / Tube & Fin or Bar & Plate

Interesting video trying to debunk the myth about which is better black or silver and general explanation of intercoolers and their construction types.

But there seems to a fair bit of debate online regarding this issue on color and construction type:

My two questions:
1. Which is better black or silver
2. Which is better tube and fin (Mountune FMIC construction) or bar and plate (Cobb FMIC construction) to name a couple of vendors and the construction types they use.

I've never seen any members third-gear datalog with the Mountune IC. That would pretty much solidify whether it's better or worse.
But look at the pictures that are posted, they're bar and plate.
