Question Opinions on Liquid Cooling System

Hey Guys!
I am in the early planning phases of building a new computer and I just wanted to get a general consensius of what everyone thinks of liquid cooling compared to air cooling. Id be interested operating temperature deltas between liquid and air cooling systems; if anybody has this type of data that they are willing to share, I would love to see it!

Thanks for the help!

Google has reviews that will show you that info. The general consensus from us all is AIO over air any day.

This. Only maintenance you have to do on an AIO is wipe the dust off of the radiator once in a while.

I was leery on water cooling just because I didn't want to have to deal with maintenance / possible leaks...but AIO coolers don't have that problem.
