Default which CPU cooler should i use?

hey guys, i recently acquired 2 CPU coolers. a Chilltec Black CPU cooler and a Corsair H70. i currently have the Chilltec installed but am thinking about switching. i have done some research but couldnt find any kind of comparison. so does anyone have any suggestions on which to use? which is better?

H70. I don't trust any variation of a TEC.

I'd go with the H70; keep an eye out for deals on that cooler.

i put the H70 in my pc yesterday (which was a pain) and it actually never dropped below 32c. so i went back to the ultra chilltec black cooler which keeps it at a steady 27c

Your ambient must be high then. My ambient temps are about 78f right now and my 2500k is sitting around 33c idle. Idle temps aren't what matter though, it's all about load.
