Yes, but since the feeble skinny rad is the performance bottleneck in every single pre-sealed 120mm water cooling product on the market, don't you think there'd be some performance gains from almost doubling the surface area of the rad?
Here's a direct comparison against the CoolIT Vantage. The H70 utterly smokes it, while the vantage even loses to a heatpipe air cooler.
