Noctua NH-D14, Thermalright silver arrow, Corsair H80, Corsair H100.

H80/100 are not exactly air coolers .
I wish there were more comparisons between the Corsair series vs air coolers.
pricerange wise they are all very interesting coolers.

But i really have no idea how much/less cooler they get

sorry to say but they are just as much of a water cooler as your custom loops. what else would you call it? it uses water and a copper block to transfer heat through tubes to a radiator, just like any custom set up.

D14 is best of the best. I had great luck with A70.

They are water coolers. Just not custom. The term for them is LCLC (low cost liquid cooling).

Anyhow to OP: yes there are better coolers. Corsair's own H80 and H100 are better. Not to mention the various air coolers out there like the Noctua NH-D14, Thermalright Venomous X, etc. But for what it's worth, the H70 (or any other LCLC for that matter) is a great cooler and for those who cannot afford the space of a gargantuan air cooler, it is the right choice.

we don't call them water coolers because they do not perform like true water cooled setups. they perform in the same category as high end air coolers.
