Would you consider it an upgrade if.. (closed loop water cooling)

Well, I currently have a CM N520 with my A10-5800K.
I tried to overclock it, but it seems my cooler was not able to bring down the temperatures going past 4.3GHZ. Getting incredibly close to 70C, and that's my limit.

I was able if a closed loop cooling kit such as Corsairs H70 or Antech Kuhler 920 would be a good investment in terms of cooling performance over my N520?

Thanks for your time and opinions.

These coolers would do the trick, just make sure that your case has a 120 mm exhaust fan that you can replace with the rad/fans. Personally I would set the fans to blow the hot exhaust out of the case so as not to overheat everything else.

Thanks, but I decided to go with a Noctua NH-D14 instead.

Hard to beat the Noctua product and design but for your future consideration look and read about this new bad boy.
