well not ever looking back. Understood. The H70 isn't a "gimmick" it works well and holds it's own against top aircoolers while keeping a smaller footprint.
@James: I have an H70 since I wanted good temps, in a simple package, yielding a small footprint and stellar after sales support.
Everyone will have their opinions, might as well throw mine for fun right?
A D14 will beat the H70 by a few C, however it is much larger and has issues with ram clearance on some systems. I simply did not want to deal with that. The H70 with my current NoiseBlocker fans keeps my 920 nice, chilly and happy, my Dominators have no qualms either
Getting the H70 over other options at $84 CAD [which is pretty inexpensive imo lol] saves you extra cash for a larger HDD which may come in handy from a 120HDD ^^
I personally love my H70 over my TRUE with push pull. The temps improved my 3-4C which is pretty negligible, but the extra space for proper airflow actually dropped my GPU temps about 6C, which now keeps the fan speed down and the card cooler, it just was worth it in my case.
Short version: The H70 [especially at 84CAD] is agood option, it yields temps comparable to high end aircooling while maintaining a smaller footprint
