Probably water, peltiers add extra heat into an already hot system...and you need more ventilation, where with water, or fluid, you could run it as a closed system, where only the tubes, and waterblock go inside.....there is also a kind of electricly inert fluid made for supercooling...and of course it cost some real money, like $80.00 a gal Sorry I can't remember the name.
Pelts are easy to handle also once you get the hang of them....most people going with water also use a couple of pelts as well....I think it's a matter of taste I never really had the need for supercooling, as I have been really lucky when buying processors, most I have bought overclocked well, with just a little good thermal grease, and air cooling

From what I know of peltiers all they do is actively moving heat from the chip to the heatsink thus making the heatsink more efficient
I just did not know which worked better.

in my personal opinion and from the experiences i and my close friends have had, water cooling is the better option, there is too much that can go wrong with a pelt
