H70 is almost as good as the Noctua NH-D14, the best air cooler around. That seems pretty good to me...

Eh, The performance difference I have seen between mine and the Corsair series varies between 1 to 5 degrees... not worth the price for what I have now.

If you already have a good Noctua cooler, then no, it's not worth it, but the upcoming H80/H100 might change that.

I like my H70. It's nothing groundbreaking performance wise, but it does strike a good balance between noise and performance when the voltage reducers are used. I had to buy separate fans to replace the Corsair ones due to noise at high RPMs.

OK, really tempted to get a H50 and eventually go Corsair on memory and PSU.

Well, the Corsair Hydro is as simple as fitting a normal HS/F, so OK, smash your PC if you like.

I don't know about them. All that I know is that my cooler is solid, and I have yet to experience any problems with it. I have had air coolers in the past that went full retard on me, but I have yet to have my CoolIT or my H70 to go bad.
