Don't understand why a AIB wouldn't try to sell just the bare board GPU to us at a discount.

Because 100% guaranteed you'll get people who proceed to run their GPU without a cooler, burn it up, and ask for a replacement.

Why video cards with blocks already attached need to become more popular.

I already knew someone would say that and reminds me back in the day when a member on the EVGA forums was complaining about their system restarting after they installed a HC GTX Titan.
Said after 30mins under load the GPU would get over 90deg, artifacts, and the whole system would shut down lachen.gif
EVGA actually RMAed two cards before we all on the forums and EVGA support realized that they didn't have it hooked up to a loop but just plopped into the system. Had me rolling.

But they're 100% pointless if they cost more than buying a card + block separate. And on top of that they don't even have the decency to throw in the stock cooler, so you're getting doubly ripped off. mad.gif

And I meant disposable AIO because they are kinda throwaway after several years as you can't replace the pump or anything afaik smile.gif

 

Have you had many AIO's? I have an H100 from launch (July 2011) and it is still working just fine :)

Not surprised by that at all.

IF they cost more. But yeah, they should be like those Visiontek 290X cards where it's only like $50 more for the WC version (unless I'm not remembering correctly but I do remember it being cheaper than card + block separately).

Yeah I've seen that thread, it was sad and hilarious at the same time.

And that wasn't a one off occurrence either: http://forums.evga.com/EVGA-GeForce-Titan-Black-Hydro-Copper-Signature-Cooling-Advice-m2191698.aspx
