the v6 hands down, plus the a70 mounting is pretty bad and by that i mean terrible on top of that the hyper 212 performs a lot better than an a70 if you want cheap

which one the a70? its quieter but then again i really never had any noise issues with my stock one. the v6gt which i own now is very quiet unless your like super overclocked on like a first gen 15 or i7. but with my v6 i haven't had any temps above 41c and that's with the fans slightly above half speed ,and plus it lights up

I duno about the v6 tbh, always stayed away from it after i heard it spinning in my friends rig (im the cool and quiet noctua kind of guy)...the A70 isnt bad if you can get it for 25-30$ but not for AMD, simply cause it only mounts north south on AMD *enter sad face here*
