I'm building a gaming computer, with i5 6600k and MSI Z170A krait gaming motherboard. I do want to overclock. Should I get a water cooling or air cooling?

Depends how far you want to overclock and what your budget for a cooler is

I prefere to stay around 100$... But I heard that there's might be alot of troubles with water-cooling (leaks, etc)

Sealed water coolers (AIOs) have hardly any, if at all, leaks.

I heard air coolers work just as good unless you are doing a ton of over clocking. I went with an air cooler but I'm not over clocking.
