How long does the average AIO cooler last?

Since your warranty is up... now. Generally these things don't give a lot of warning before a component fails. If you don't have back-up cooling method handy, you may want to have something put away to minimize a lengthy down time.

I think I still have the stock cooler around that I can use in a pinch.

 

What does Corsair have that's comparable to the H80 if I wanted to buy a new one? It's currently running in a push/pull configuration and I'd like to think I'm getting really good temps (apartment is pretty cold).

If you have something for back-up, there is no need to panic. Getting caught without is rather frustrating.

 

The current max singe slot cooler is the H80i GT (recently renamed H80i v2). It is similar to your current model, but the radiator has grown even thicker to 50mm. Not everyone can mount a 100mm worth of radiators and fans.

 

If your case can handle it, you might also consider a top mount 240mm radiator (H100i V2/GTX). It would get the CPU cooling out of the GPU heat stream and you should be able to run lower fan speeds. Difference in price is fairly nominal.
