Opinions needed for 240mm Water-cooled AIOs.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Guys,

First time with AIOs, I have a budget of about $100 on my cooling system.

I narrowed it down to these 3 systems.

Wondering if anyone has first hand experiences with any of these products, customer service or maybe even dealing with issues with durability or quality if there is some.

This is going in my C70 case.

Seeking for:
-quality
-durability
-good cooling capabilities
-customer service

If anyone has dealt with these AIOs, I need some experiences, good or bad.

Hi..
I have a Corsair H110 (which is a 280mm AIO), and no complains so far. I bought it in early 2014, and as my computer is almost always on, had no issues regardin pump noises or failures. Before that, I owned a H80.
I say all this because I think Corsair made some very good reliables units.
Now, from your choices, I would go for the Corsair H105.

Best regards..

I agree with the above post, Out of your selection there the h105 is a nice AIO. If you can shell out the extra coin the swiftech h220-x is one of the best, plus its expandable if you chose that at a later date.

I've been using the Thermaltake Water Extreme 3 with great results. I would recommend it to anyone.

Hmm. I'll look into it but I'll probably stick with a popular brand in case I have issues I'm more likely to get help faster.

Yea it's a close choice for me and the Corsair. Because I know
Thermaltake has been here for awhile. How many years have you used that specific AIO?

I thought about it... But I think I'll just buy new since I don't want to regret anything if it leaks prematurely and mess up some expensive stuff.

The pump of the Thermaltake Water Extreme 3 is very quiet thumb.gif

I you wanna upgrade later on, go for a Swiftech Hxxx, Eisberg, or Fractal Kelvin
