No it just turns energy into mass in the form of E-peen points. Every megajoule put into the water loop creates 1.3 grams of e-peen, a useless, mildly radioactive substance that causes social anxiety and impotence.

I say water is better for cooling,But the down fall is there could be leaks.

If you use good quality parts and take time to ensure everything is setup properly, the chance of a leak is very minimal.

Water is superior to air for cooling performance. Do a lot of research on here and choose your parts wisely. Take time to setup your build properly, and you won't be disappointed.

Good luck!

It's definitely real watercooling but the results/temps are not up to par with custom loops. Throw some good fans like some AP-15 and for most mild/med overclockers this is more then enough. In some cases, like with my mini-itx custom loops are really hard while a H70 would do the job much better since I wouldn't even be able to OC.

When it comes down to it you get what you pay for. The H50/70 is no miracle but it's great for what it is.

If money is no concern, water is the way to go. If you can't spend much stick w/ air.
See above. Concise Summary.

motherboard bending monstrosities? lmao if that was a problem why are d14s so popular.
