Overclocking cooler i5 7600k

Hey yeah as the title says I'm looking for a cooler. I've been told so many times that aio is superior to air and just as much vice versa. Now both kinds of people make great points. I'm looking to overclock and I know they can both do the job just fine.
Now I have 161mm clearance on my nzxt s340 case. I've been told about the aio leak chances. And size to power for air. I know corsair has a crazy warrenty tho I don't know how good exactly the warrenty is. Plus peeps have often said that aio coolers it's not if they leak it's when... is this true... keep in mind I have a 900$ cdn gpu and that's a bad think to break!!!. Now if I left something out let me know. Give me feed back im sick and tired of vid after post after blog trying to figure shit out... thank you

    Really need to decide on the type you're leaning towards. I can recommend going either way. Regarding temps though, a larger aircooler will be on par with most AIO coolers, and noise can vary based on fan speed, ect. I've been custom WC'd now for about 6 yrs with my main system though parts have changed in that time. I also have a "daily driver" X58 system with an older original Corsair H60 that's been running fine since about mid-2012. Also ran another Corsair H60i in a small HTPC for about 2 years before switching to air due to space constraints during a component upgrade. Of course, a quality air cooler should last about forever as well, short of a fan issue over time. In your case, both air and water will likely OC to the same speed.
