Depends on the chip. And there are variations within the same batch #.
I'd spend $50 on a 1TB Samsung Spinpoint F3 if I was you, available o'er at Superbiiz...I am in awe of how quick this HDD is. Multiple times faster all around than the 320GB WD I used to be using.
H70 is overpriced for the performance you get. Only way it is worth it is if you have tight quarters and cannot fit a better air-cooler (that is the same price or cheaper). Proper watercooling kits are about as expensive as an H70 and the 2 better fans to go on it that you'll find yourself wanting.
