yes, every single one, after 3-5 years. Though a few lost speed settings, & evapped/congealed coolant.

they're "disposable" devices, none of the manufacturers hide that fact.

HA!

all of us custom cooling snobs are going to thrash those AIO plebs.


AIOs SUCK!


thanks!

I'd never lower myself to buy an AIO.
I expect my pumps to last 10+ years easy.

my MCP35x2 has outlived every single AIO anyone has ever had installed by me in their prebuilts by a factor of 3, and is still going. 24/7 usage, max speed. I'm so used to the sound of it+40 AP15s on high that turning down sounds worse.

something about south, near water florida, is harder on hardware. Humidity + salt = early deaths. Stuff lasts about half as long as it does where you don't have salt content in the sticky air... unless you have a proper modern air conditioned well sealed home, of course.

In 10 years I've used/installed a couple dozen AIO's . So far 2 pump failures one after 5 years of use and one in the first 2 weeks . Both corsair units. The 2 week old one was a silent death- no outward signs of failure, the other was a catastrophic failure popping the lid off the pump and draining a small amount of fluid onto the graphics card below as well as some onto the motherboard. I was in the room when it happened and yanked the cord out of the back of the PSU. I disassembled the system, cleaned it with QD electronic cleaner. allowed it to sit for a few days and everything came back to life.

The first one I bought is at least 10 years old, ( 120mm corsair) and it ran nearly continuously for the first 8 years or so then about 50% of the time since - still going though the cpu now has hotter temps at 4.7 ghz than it did at 5 ghz when new. No idea if its the pump, coolant , fan or paste.

What paste are you using it could be the contact between block and CPU. Also can you find out if pump is still spinning at its desired speed. Wow 8 years is a long time. But when the pump dies what happens to CPU ,,,,,, it shuts down cuz of heat automatically I believe.

AS 5 is the paste.

Pump is spinning same as new, but I have no idea how efficient the impeller is at this point.

It's my son's 2600K rig and will be relegated to a back up rig soon - just bought him an MSI MEG ACE 570 board and a 3600 Ryzen.
When I get his new one built, I plan on tearing his old one down and replacing the cooler. I'll try to get some pictures of the paste at that time. When it was new, it was amazing 5 ghz 1.42 volts and would prime at that speed with thermal headroom to spare.

The catastrophic failure was on a machine which I had disabled thermal shutdown - it was an ASROCK 990 Extreme 3 but I had it powered off within a minute of the pump failing ( it black screened but was still running). The other throttled the cpu to the point where I recognized what was happening and shut it off.
