Used many coolers over 1kg in a vertical motherboard layout, one of them was moved constantly... Never had an issue.

Its not an issue regardless, unless you're shipping your rig(you should be securing everything inside then regardless), or unless you're particularly careless with a LAN rig.

How did this big cooler phobia even start? Is there even one case of a properly mounted tower cooler damaging a motherboard? confused.gif

This little thing only weighs 1.9KG.

I regret throwing it away, it worked much better than my old H70, though every time I either banged the case or needed to clean it I was scared it would break off a huge chunk of my board.

msot CPU Coolers with the copper base and limited heat conductivity from heatpipes wont match an AIO at high TDP, there is really no point for big heatsinks nowdays

There sure is, big heat sinks still perform better than CLC's at low fan speeds. Some people like their systems quiet you know. rolleyes.gif

dBA graphs hardly tell the entire story. How quiet do they get at idle? How low can you keep those fans while maintaining reasonable temperatures?

CLC's always look good in graphs, but in the real world I'll take a big air cooler or a custom loop over a CLC any day.

Also, How are you liking that lovely asetek/coolit pump whine? wink.gif

Taking cost into account most AIO's aren't worth it.
