Watch youtube videos about installs and do an extensive leak test (12-24 hours) and you shouldn't have any problem. The AIO coolers are pretty easy to both install and maintain.

Not to mention, the Corsair warranty covers any damage to your system if one of their units fails due to a defect.
Hmm. Getting quite attached to it now, so there's a tiny chance of it leaking? I just don't want it leaking onto my motherboard graphics card which are expensive.

I have a 4670k, they run hot, real real hot. I couldn't get any sort of decent overclock on it with my Hyper212+. I installed an h80i and am now stable at 4.3ghz with it never breaking 70c in prime 95 blend test. Usually hovers around 60 in every day use.

And I have had 2 custom built loops, and 2 self contained water coolers and NEVER had a leak. The last customer loop I made ran 24x7 for almost two years too.

Last I heard, there was one or two known cases of a Corsair AIO water cooler failing because of a manufacturing fault. Considering how many they churn out, that's about as likely as you winning the lottery.

There are 1000s of consumers who use this to cool their 3960x while running SLI Titans (that's an exageration, but you get the point). If they can trust Corsair to not fail, I think you can too thumb.gif

Corsair H110, H100i, Kraken X60 or Swiftech H220 all the way. Easiest maintenance, easiest installation, great to work around. Installs in about 15-20 minutes tops. Mounts in places where you will have fans anyway. Maintenance is like any quick maintenance with your computer (spray compressed air through radiator and fans [even easier if you have fan filters]). Removing block takes about 5 minutes in case you need to do work around the motherboard or apply new thermal paste. As far as worrying about leaking goes, All-in-One units are completely sealed and the water doesn't need to be changed (aside from the H220 which allows you to do modifications). If anything does leak, warranty covers damaged parts typically and the failure rate is pretty small with newer manufactured units.

I love my H100, with upgraded fans I'm sitting at 25C idle, 55C load in Prime95 and that's @ 4.9GHz @ 1.43v w/ HT on. Put any of these AIO coolers in Push/Pull configuration with higher static pressure fans and it increases the performance of the unit drastically.
