I am about to receive my i7 970 and want to overclock this to 4.0 GHZ(mainly gaming and will start Adobe CS5 stuff)
and was debating on these coolers...
Pricing isn't a factor and just wondering which will do the best justice...
the H70 seems like the more logical solution as it saves space for bigger RAM slots and don't have to maintain anything...

I always trusted the Megahalems as they were already better than the H50 but heavy and needed a solid installation...

Either one I get will have push/pull configuration...

What do you all think?
Any current recommendations?

I currently have a GTX 580, Corsair 750 watt hooked to a Dell XPS 435MT;i7 920, 6GB RAM, which will change to a Asus P6X58D-E MB...

Plan on changing the case as well.

i have a 920 and i got it overclocked to 4.0 Ghz with the megahalems and as5
under around 28 degrees idle, around 65 degrees load
it's a great cooler
as for the h70, i've never personally experienced it but the temperatures that i've seen on the internet aren't as good as mine
