Default Coolit eco vs h50 vs h70

I know you guys cannot give me a guaranteed answer, but how about an educated guess... I'm currently running an i5-750 @ 4Ghz, But I think it is a bit to much under stress in prime 95 my core temp has gone as high as 76c with temp warnings and intelburntest crapping out after a few minutes saying it's not stable. My current cooler is a Zalman CNPS10x Performa and my case is a LIAN LI PC-7B plus II, The original case fans are gone... I have them replaced with Apevia 120mm's front, rear and top blow hole. I think they are rated at around 56cfms... and I've replaced the fan on the cpu cooler with a Yate Loon 120mm @ 88cfm... I know by the reviews that my choices for a closed water cooling system are, the Coolit ECO, Corsair H50 or the newer Corsair H70... If price was no option I would go with the H70... Is it really worth the $50 premium over the H50 or the Coolit ECO? or will the Coolit ECO or the H50 be good enough to lower my temps to a more manageable level... My heart says Coolit, being Canadian, my brain says H50.... and the H70 just seems to expensive (me being a tight wad), unless someone here says its a no brainer and definately a huge improvement.. By the way If Suggestions go more towards the H50 or the H70, I will not be using that setup in the suggested config the rear fan will be exhaust... and if the coolit and H50 equals if fans are mounted as exhaust? Help... I need some guidance!
