Liquid or air is the same thing essentially, until you get into the 280mm/360mm aios. Those only have the advantage in capacity over big air.

Corsair H60 = CoolerMaster Hyper212 Evo. Same performance, almost identical curves. Hyper212 costs $35, H60 costs $80. Only reason to buy the H60 is physical limitations of the case. That works for all size ranges.

For that price range, I'd rather have a beQuiet Shadow Rock TF2 at $70. Considerably better than the H60, lower profile than the Hyper212 and still downdraft style.

Upgrading from 8gb to 16gb ram, is it worth?
Games like FarCry5 are already coming out with minimum recommendation of 8GB RAM. And some are already recommending 16GB to be played comfortably.
So, getting a 16GB RAM is worth the upgrade.
Btw, ram pairing is troublesome (if you're unlucky, they won't work well together).
Get a 2×8GB kit. They come paired directly from the manufacturer.
