Good post. I tried many different CLC and all has been a nightmare.
I am talking about going far back well before Corsair teamed up with Asetek.
You have Coolit and Asetek selling their own kits to the public. No matter what I did, not once could I have temps/noise equal to the air coolers I had.
Then came along Swiftech with the H220. That kicked the crap out on my Noctua NH-U12P SE2. Was just as quite, yet gave me 5-8c cooler overall from idle to load.

CLC are a joke and continue to be one. Many will say yes mine works fine and has for a while.
More bad stories from CLC vs how many from air coolers???
