just asking the simple question about whether air-cooled radiator style CPU coolers have any special advantage over liquid cooled system, or vice versa, and is it your case that makes the difference.

The air is cheaper but i puts a lot of extra pressure on the mobo. low end water cooler sucks. Also you dont need to worry about clearance with water coolers unlike big air coolers.
