    I'm still prefer air cooling. I know, the most people will prefer liquid. But I think air is more sure, not event noised, and more easy to clean. And cheaper!!
    The lc have antidust sistem? What do you think?

    Well providing your case has good airflow, a decent air cooler is going to match an AIO liquid cooler easily, within 1 or 2C's

    A custom loop should allow for a little more Overclocking headroom but is an expensive undertaking.

    AIO's suit a lot of smaller cases which have restricted airflow, they can also look cool and allow more space to deal with components when switching out, (no more getting a pencil in to trigger the GPU mounting clip).

    Personally I have joined the water cooling club, and intend to do a full custom loop, its fun, challenging and has that getting to ram/gpu benefit, also my case doesn't have the best airflow due to a restrictive front panel, which would have to be modded with some holes to improve it.
