Corsair H115i RGB Platinum AIO Liquid CPU Cooler,280mm vs EK CPU Waterblock

I have been using an EK CPU Waterblock for years, no issues. But I may get an Corsair H115i and change out the EK CPU Waterblock. Go with a closed loop. Should I or stay with the EK block?

if you already have a decent custom loop, and its working fine, stick with it, its better.

I am just trying to downsize I guess. I have a mountain mods case with 4 rads x 280mm each with 2 loops, 2 res and pumps. 17 corsair Magnetic Levitation fans. I brought a Phantek evolve x case recently so...just thinking if I wanted to stay with custom loop or go stock closed loop. I would still have one custom loop with 1 rad in it because of the water blocks on the video card.

Well the Evolv X can easily fit 2 280's, so I'd go with that and keep 1 pumps and res, some fans and fittings and sell off the rest.

An aluminium CLC 280 is hardly, if any, better than a decent air cooler. Pointless unless you really want to have the socket area of your motherboard visible.
