Hello everyone, i currently have my rig set up with an AMD x4 B55 (4.0ghz,1.4375V)with corsair H70 water cooling. I will most likely upgrade from a GTX470 to a GTX660Ti 3gb. In order to not have a bottleneck occur im thinking of purchasing a better heatsink and progressing my overclock to maybe 4.3ghz-4.5ghz.
I currently have a Corsair H70 and im thinking of purchasing the NH-D14, will this heat-sink give me a substantial enough upgrade?

The D14 is a very solid cooler, and you can't go wrong with it. Well, that is unless it won't fit in your case.

It is a LARGE cooler, so definitely make sure you have the room to install it, but if you can definitely go with it.

Well i do have a Full Tower ATX case ... the RC-942 by cooler master, i think it is one of the biggest on the market

I'm not sure I'd invest in another cooler if you've already got the H70. Honestly, if you made it to 4.0GHZ.. Phenom IIs tend to top out in the 4.0-4.4GHZ range anyway, and 4.0 is a pretty respectable daily OC, honestly, you don't need a water cooling solution since P IIs tend to hit their max overclock before extreme cooling options are necessary.
