After using high end air vs low end (all in one) water cooling, my vote would be for the Hydro. With water your temps drop to ambient after loading almost immediately. In changing from an all in one like this to a complete high end custom I really only dropped a few degrees more. Once you go water you will get better cooling, faster drop back to ambient, etc. Its just a better cooling solution overall.
