That's because several people on this forum are seriously doing it wrong. You could have the same situation with air-cooling, the equivalent would be a case with no filters or proper airflow and you open it up to find inches of thick dust.

I'm really not trying to hate on corsair systems, I just don't understand why someone wouldn't buy something like the RS240 Kit for only a few bucks more. Without seeing any tests yet, I'm almost certain it would beat the corsair in this price range.

The only way I could see using one of their coolers would be for a very small case like an HTPC.

I think the good things about Corsair's units are that the pump/block is one compact part and it's relatively easy to swap in/out. Besides that, they have a pretty good reputation and offer acceptable performance.

However, if you have the funds and a roomy case, a custom loop wins every time.

No, I have never watercooled but I've read a lot about it. From seeing the threads some of you guys have posted with cleaning / dis-assembly / reassembly projects I would never want to have to go through all that trouble. (i.e. taking everything apart, draining, scrubbing with toothbrush, refilling, putting everything back together)

With an air cooler all you have to do is blow the dust out every once in a while.
Like The_Punisher said, if you have to do all that then you're not doing it right. I never ever have to clean any gunk out of my loop, the water stays nice and clean day in day out. I only use distilled water and silver coils, nothing else. If you start pouring colorants so it looks cool for a week, then that's a different matter. Sure, with time the tubing doesn't look as clear as it did when new but the water inside doesn't have any gunk. You just have to clean all the parts well enough before your first installation and you're good to go. There are no water levels to check either. Once you bleed your system correctly the level stays pretty much constant (it is a closed system after all). Like I said before, it doesn't require any more maintenance than an air cooler. Eventually dust accumulates in the radiator just like it does in a heatsink. Sure, cleaning the watercooling loop might be more troublesome than an air cooler but I never said it wasn't, plus that really depends on the setup. In my case, the dust in my radiator is very easy to clean. I don't even have to remove it from the case or empty the loop.

Only reason people do that stuff is because they screwed up when they initially installed their loop.

I like how they're trying to claim that they're selling it at $45 off
