H70 performs significantly better than the Eco when your processor is overclocked. Not sure why anyone thinks otherwise...

Only reason why the H70 would perform better is the thicker rad. Otherwise they are both the same setup.

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.

Default In regards to the free ECO...

I want to thank all those that PM'ed me in regards to the free ECO I was giving away (to a good home), it has been graciously taken off my hands...I do hope the new owner has better results than I ever did.

It's true... but the H70 is SO UGLY...
I'm just gonna wait until the H60, has better than H50 aesthetics but supposedly has H70-level performance...

I personally found that the stock fans on the H70 make an extremely annoying sound. I mean, they are loud which wouldn't be so bad but they produce this terrible whining sound. As far as mounting systems go, the ECO is superior.

Yeah the mounting system "some assembly required" for the H70 is terrible... The fans that come with it are annoying, but you can't argue with performance. From my perspective the fans will be replaced and the mounting system will only be used once or twice, so performance is key...
