Is watercooling really only 10-15c improvement? If I'm hitting 70c now I'd hit 55c with water?

it all depends on the setup.
Watercooling can be a LOT more than 15-20c cooler, or it can be the same as air

There are so many factors involved it is impossible to say how much you will get. Ambient temps, voltages, case, air flow, etc etc. From what I've read though, 10-15 is pretty average.
