But honestly, I wouldn't buy a closed loop water cooler. the reasons are numerous.
1. They have way more moving parts. This makes them a LOT more likely to break, as they have many more things that can break
2.When they DO break, you are *******. Unlike a normal cooler, there is no metal heatsink left if the moving parts stop moving,which means the CPU doesn't have time to downthrottle properly (and you can guess what that means.)
3. If it fails totally,instead of plastic,the pc is filled with liquid...
4. They are noisier than air cooling systems because the fans work harder due to heatsink being denser
5.You get same cooling performance cheaper by using air cooler such as Noctua D14 or Silver arrow.Edited by Grmadness - 2/17/13 at 5:16pm
