Yes, this is normal. The liquid has a higher heat capacity (specific heat) than the CPU. So it takes more energy to warm it up.
And 70C is fine. Even 80C is OK. 90C is where you start throttling. And the CPU will throttle and shut down before you damage it.
Also, do a search for some of c-attacks posts on this. He explains is very, very well.
