Neither of these coolers requires low profile RAM. Standard height RAM fits with no issues. It's the RAM with the non-functional decorative heatsinks that are the issue.
There undoubtedly several patterns going on here, but you are only seeing the one that you want to see. While the old H50 pump was a sturdier pump than what Asetek is making now, this thread was really intended to be about the affects of coolant breakdown. And I would have to say "going strong" would be used rather loosely with the temps you quoted, I hate to say it, but I have gotten significantly better results with a number of sub-$50 low profile coolers on the 4790K at 4.7/1.28V during evaluations.
Yes, but the temps is not the Cooler faults any more than it is my luck for getting a 4790K that critically needs to be delidded.
My 4790K on Prime95 after 8 hours with small packets got to 88c in one core with the rest hovering from 78-79 and 82c.
You wish a low profile air cooler could ever do that in the same test, which was done in a Mini ITX CM Elite 130 Case on Florida
And yes, the thread was about the coolant inside closed loops, and I'm here telling you for what is worth that there have not been any issue on my H50, and as far as I can tell the H50 is the only Closed Loop where I've seen people saying to last for the best part of a decade, making the issue less of a "thick coolant" and more of a "Weak Pump"

iirc Warranty period was 5 years. I expect there to be a year or two overlap in coverage on everything with a reasonably long warranty period. 7 years is good, but I'll be more impressed with 10 years.
My old h50 which I sold is just now approaching the EoL of it's warranty. I think it's got ~1yr left.
Almost 8 years at this point, cooling just like the first day. I have yet to see a H50 having its pump fail, maybe that's because they all were made with strong pumps capable of lasting longer than 8 years, and even if it does dies before the 10 years mark... It's 50$ freaking dollars for Christ sake, I won't build a custom loop just so I can change its coolant every 8 years, I'd rather buy another 50$ Closed Loop, I'd just have to buy around 8 closed loops in my entire life, if I even get to live that long that is.
