personally id take the h50/70 , i dont want a fat heatsink weighing down my mobo .. the radiator i can squeeze anywhere .. with the d14 u are limited .
True true, although i have a torture rack so its not weighing down in any stressful way.
Unmodded the H70 and H50 will perform about the same or worse than the D14 or silver arrow or megahalems, modded the H50 and H70 can net some nice temps better than the three mentioned coolers.Edited by sockpirate - 4/22/11 at 8:56pm
