Some builds don't have the space for a tower cooler, and some CLCs are cheaper, simpler, and take less space than custom loops and even most of the expandable AIO types.

But yes, in general a lot of people are ignorant (unfortunately, sometimes willfully) about relative CLC performance and characteristics.

It's also possible that more people mess up the mounting of air coolers.
