Corsair AIO Failing. Replace with air

I have an i7-6700k running a mild overclock with 32GB of RAM (4*8 Corsair Vengeance)
The CPU is cooled by a Corsair Hydro H100i v2 which is starting to make some alarming noises. Mobo is an Asus Maximus VIII Hero. The case is a CM Storm, so has lots of room

Its in warranty according to the Corsair website but the system as a whole is out of warranty.

It never was as quiet as I would have liked it to be but has recently got louder and burbles as if it contains a lot of air rather than just water, more importantly the core temps are very high.

So I thought I would replace with an aircooler (being simpler physically).

Any thoughts on a high end air cooler that won't impact the RAM modules and that is relatively simple to install (some coolers require a certified Yogi and 3 or 4 hands to install as well as a degree in mechanical engineering). I really don't want to have to dismantle everything to get this back together and working properly again

If there's air in it it's leaking. Stop using it immediately.

RAM it depends. You can usually access comparability charts or lists. Noctua do them :)
