That said even with 4.0 ghz o/c my cpu runs 50 c max, normally closer to 40-41c should I be bothering with h20 coolers? I was think about the corsair 90.
50c is good. Intel is safe up to 95c where it begins to throttle itself or completely shut off.

TBH. I wouldn't waste my money on the H50/H70. I would spend that hard earned money on a good high end air cooler that will out perform a closed loop system like the H50.

NH-D14 from Noctua would be my pick.
it shattered, almost broke my hand, I stole a 120mm case fan from the front hdd rack for now ;0

Not seeing an improvement when going from a 5850 to a 570? What resolution are you gaming at? What game(s) are you using to make that statement?

There's your answer, it's just that those games don't need the extra power of the 570. BF3 would show the difference in power between the two cards.

Just busting on you. I don't doubt that it will be CPU dependent since BC2 is CPU dependent.

ON TOPIC:

You need to play newer games to see the difference. 570's can overclock to be faster than a stock clock 580. Barring the vrm issue that is.
