I just installed my H70 last week with 2 Noctua 140mm fans (on 120mm mounts) in a HAF-X case, pulling air in the case.
I originaly tested in Prime95 at 4.2 GHz @ 1.325V but the temperature was too high: 81-82 'C.
Now I'm running happy at 4.0 GHz @ 1.25V and the temperature is at 71 'C in Prime95.
I'm quite satisfied now. You can check my complete specs below.
Got any pics? I don't see why you need 140mm fans, there are much better 120mm fans that work well with the H70

The Noctua fans are very good, and being 140mm provide very good airflow at lower rpm, so very quiet. They provide better airflow than the 2000rpm Corsair fans for a lot less noise.
Here are some pics, but not very high quality.

Not bad man....might have a hard time sealing a shroud on them though right? I guess if you don't want to put shrouds on then it doesn't matter though =)

The point i am getting at is that the 140mm fans will not be 'sealed' against the rad, and you will get air blowing down the side of the rad and not through it as it is supposed to (your second pic shows the gaps)

On the other hand, you could argue that most 120mm fans don't cool the corners of a square 120 mm radiator very well, for that you probably need a square fan shroud. So, yes, with this setup you're blowing air next to the radiator, but ALSO through it... I can imagine pretty good results with a setup like this.

Finally got my H50 installed, and idle temps are 30C, and at times 26C. Overclocked my X2 II 550 to 4.01GHz @1.50-1.55v, but haven't tested with prime yet.

Also, do i need 1.55v to get 4GHz stable with a 550?

Exactly ... I thought this setup would be quite efficient and very quiet!
And I'm happy with the results: maximum 71 'C at 4 GHz in prime95, sometimes even 69 'C!

I'm running a 930 @ 4.0 GHz on 1.32 Volts, stable in Prime for 6 hours, at 71 degrees with my H50 and double Scythe Gentle Typhoons 1850 RPM in push/pull acting as exhaust. Although I guess your fans might be a bit more quiet than mine, results seem pretty similar.

What's your Vcore?

I'm running @ 1.25 V, although CPU-Z shows 1.28V, but I never let prime95 run for that long

What was your ambient temp? My results for H70/gentle typhoon versus corsair fans here:-
