What he said.
I bought my A70 over the 212+ because it came with a second fan, and it was black. I am NOT disappointed.
After the rebate, it came around to the price of a 212+. At 50% fan speed, I idle at 33C, and that's with a room that doesn't have the best air flow in the house (my case fans are also all at 50%, and my CPU is OCd to 3.2GHz).
Under full load, and fans at 100%, I don't go over 50C. I love this cooler.
I think it should be mentioned and considered just as much as the 212+.
