The H70's RAD is a little thicker than the H50. But other than that, it would be a waste.

Well, I've never had the H50, but I can say that my H70 has kept my i7 870 decently cool (low to mid 70's) at 4.2ghz with 1.4v.

And if you're worried about price... well, it just so happens I'm selling it for fairly cheap! Let me know if you'd be interested.

Based on my experience, H70 is better than H50.

I've tested five H50s and these units are best when cpu clock is 3.8ghz and below. But beyond that, H50s can't handle the heat anymore.

That's a different story on H70s, I'm running 4.5 ghz right now and CPU idles at 31~33 and 42~49 on load.

Unless you are trying to push an OC higher and cannot without lower temps it would be a waste. I haven't used an h50 so I can't really comment on performance differences.

if your going from an H50 to H70, dont waste the money. its not worth it to be honest unless you can get a good deal / trade for something you don't really need. I think if your going to upgrade from an H50, get this: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12...oil.html#blank

Take this from a fellow H50 -> H70 user -- It's a waste. I got ~4c degree better temps. At the price an H70 + 2 Ultra Kaze 3000's cost, a RASA 360 kit would have been the same price but with much better performance and looking a heckuva lot cooler.
