    I would get air cooled, because more things can go wrong with liquid cooled.
    Also liquid cooled has a limited lifetime, Air cooled doesn't aslong as you maintain it properly.

    In general, a liquid cooling system is a useful device to help you dissipate heat and reduce temperature efficiently. However, most computer systems are still operating within the reasonable temperature range and there is no need for such an extreme device. If you are overclocking your system, or building an extreme computer that requires plenty of power, then the liquid cooling system is definitely the one to go for.
