Water vs Aircool

I just returned a dual fan Corsair 100i water cooler since it does not fit my case (my bad). Thinking about buying a single fan version, but then I started watching people's problem with water cool on Youtube and having a second thought.

One of my problem is my Thermaltake Core V1 is limited to 140mm heatsink height.  If it is 160mm, it would be a no brainer to go with aircool.

Anyway, I think I will get a Nocture NH-U9S with 5 heatpipes and 92mm fan. And add couple more 80mm case fans. Water cooler does not sound reliable enough for me. The pump can generate debris and clog up the micro-channels.  I don't think it will last 5-7 yrs like aircooler.
