    Really it is up to the OP to what they value the most, quietness, value for money, outright performance etc.

    - out of the box the 620 is quieter
    - out of the box the h70 is cooler
    - 620 is cheaper (i assume it is, but it could be different where you live)


    I'd be leaning to the 620 because I value quietness more than performance and it just happened to be cheaper for me. But it's up to Saizo what they value the most.
    SaiZo says thanks.

    Well, thanks everyone. @THE EGG Yes the 620 is cheaper. What I want is something that is cooler and works good. The problem with the H70 core is that comes without fans.. Just a couple of good fans would make the price go up, when I meant fans, I was looking at the Noctua NF-P12.

    I think that would have been a good setup, but then the price would be too high, could just spend the cash on another one (if they would have anything else in store). I'll go to the hardware store in about 2 hrs from now.

    But I have this strange feeling, I need what can keep my AMD cool..

    Not sure if you saw, but the egg has the H80i which has been tested as an outstanding closed loop cooler for $75 after MIR on special. :) The numbers under heavy load are VERY impressive compared to the older H80 and even H100. Best of luck!

    Posted it in the deals forum and also snagged one up myself!

    Nope it's the tdelta between the cpu core temp and ambient air. Lower is still better.
