Also...I don't do any extreme overclocking nor do I ever move my case...so I don't think I would see much of a difference. If I had not bought the A70..I *might* of started with the Hydro...though I don't think you can really go wrong either way tbh. I will admit Hydro series does look a lot cooler, weights less on your motherboard, and saves some significant space.
Good choice IMHO, If you are not planning on over clocking, a good air cooler would serve you fine.. I am actually planning on changing my H70 to a Air Cooler in my server, just because I am *crack* paranoid that it'll blow up one day and there goes my LSI 9265 raid card..

I'd rather go custom if I am sticking a 360 in my system already, that way I can reuse for future upgrades, add stuff to loop, just being all around versatile. A H80 or H70, I would consider.

Its a H70 and I already have all my pwm / power save features shut off in bios, I recall someone from Corsair forum stating the H70 pump runs at 1400ish RPMs also..
