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
