Nah I'm not going to spend all the time, effort, and money to do water cooling just because I can't fit a 200mm fan, not to mention the NH-D14 is still an amazing cooler. I'm actually thinking of trying out liquid cooling on my next build though but that will probably be in 2-4 years from now

and you are spending almost just as much for that d14 plus fans as you could to go with an XSPC RS240 kit. that is only 130 dollars.

Not exactly what I was looking for. On the other hand, it is an alternative option that does not include me removing the actual LED from the case. haha.

How about unplugging the Power LED from the mobo?

My NH-D14 is $90 and Liquid cooling has very tedious installation/maintenance IMO.

Do you have liquid cooling?
No, so how would you know the maintence required.

I would much rather spend the extra 40 dollars for water then buy a D14 and be limited to the performance of air.

I have only heard/seen about liquid cooling. It looks very nice I'll admit but I already made my build. I mean sure I like to try it and also I'd like to ask how likely is the risk of a leak?

It depends on how you install it. if it's leaking 99.9% you did something wrong.

u probably have a higher chance of leaking with h50/70 than water cooling setup

You really just posted that?

Leaking is a possibility, but 99% of the time it is because of user error.

Plus distilled water isn't conductive, so even if it does spill you just shut down your rig and clean it up. Which isn't a big issue since you wont' leak if you install it right. Just make sure all barbs are tight and you have clamps on your hose.

I installed my water cooling and i haven't touched it in over 3 months. It is running just fine. I would say the maintence on it is about the same as dust clean up on your case. Plus how often does a computer nerd do something with their computer.

For an average user, yes water isn't the way to go, but people like us like to keep our cases clean and are constantly doing stuff to it.
