I was wondering though seeing the low-profile Air coolers builds, what are the temps you're reaching at load? (That Noctua option seems to go quite well with the ventilation paths of the case)
I had a lot of problems with the H75. I had 3 units, and all three had bubbles inside, that causes a crackling noise. 2 of them right away, one of them after some months. Maybe, if the tubes can be mounted on the downside of the rad, the pump cant recirculate them. But in such cases like the air 240, you dont really have options mounting them. Then i went with the U9S too. Its silent and reliable.
