The Archon is only 10mm taller at 170mm. It'll probably be tight but It looks like it should fit without removing the side fan.

Here is a photo I took with my side on to try to show how much clearance is left with the SA. Sorry about the quality.

Try megahalem? Push and pull on those things give you good result and it does not obstruct any RAM slot.

One thing to consider is maybe getting a fan controller as the H70 is really limited by pump speed and rad size not the fans - by going to faster fans you will not see a noticible drop in temps. My 14's run at 1450 rpm so you can lower your 15's to 80ish % and see if the noise drops off.
