Unfortunatley, performance isn't the only factor here. If I was to go with the DH-14, I would have to change my choice of RAM - that Vengeance stuff is really good, I think only G-Skill have got a set to match it, which still probably wont clear enough space for that cooler. Add in the whole weight thing, and higher case temps than with the H60 - I don't mind being second place for the additional benefits.

If this rig was built for pure overclocking and was staying in one place, I would wholeheartedly agree with you, though.

if you are truly going for a movable setup, i would go with the h60 (for the less weight on ur CPU wile moving) and get an mATX board and case... something along the lines of the NZXT vulcan and an ASUS EVO or something along those lines
