Don't worry, it will not void your H70's warranty as long as you don't tell Corsair you used a different backplate, even then, I don't think they'd mind for using another backplate.
As long as it's the metal back plate, and makes the H70 fit perfectly tight, you'll be fine and I wouldn't worry.
Now go enjoy that nice cooler you got!

I remember my H70 had 3 different holes for 3 different sockets.
Read the instructions and it should mention which holes you should use for your AM3 socket
Either ways, you'll be fine with both backplates.
