If you're happy with the H70 then I'm happy I don't mean they can't cool because they certainly can. I just meant that some air coolers can beat them and at a lower price. And if your ultimate goal is to get a serious water cooling kit in the not-so-distant future, save a few bucks now so that you can get it sooner.

By the way I don't want a big hunk of metal obscuring the view of my beautiful ram and motherboard either! But I personally have to while I buy my loop piece by piece under my wife's watchful eye. That and the H70's radiator, depending on where you put it in your case, could be just as much an eyesore as a big heatsink.

Yeah I personally don't want something the weight of an Noctua haning off my mobo.
