This is where you're a bit off-base.
Closed loop watercooling is made to be an alternative to high-end aircooling, not conventional watercooling.
IMHO I feel that The bulk of people that get these types of coolers are people that are new watercooling and don't want the hassle or risk conventional watercooling but do want the performance. That is just the people that I know that own these types of products, so I very well could be wrong. I just don't see people thinking Air-cooling when they buy a kit like this.
EDIT:These may be MADE with that intention, but is that the common perception of your average customer?
I do appreciate You/HReps comming on OCN.
Thank you for taking your time to give us your input!
