I cant remember the plant name, but I bought a vine that feed on nitrates. Maybe I had to much water flow or whatever. My wife finally had enough and I had to dismantle it. Totally get that.

If you planning to use a beefy GPU then water cooling will prolong its lifespan since the temps stay at around 35 to 45c while gaming and you dont like getting a gpu every 2 years or so, plus if you want a little bit extra juice with overclock (not sure if many OC a gpu but the option is there). And of course for the silence.

You obviously havent tried slapping 2x 10$ 120mm fans on ur random aftermarket GPU with zipties, RTX 2080 is inaudible under full load 50cm away in an open case, temps suck if u run ur fans very slow but perf is as good as with the screaming fans.

Radiators usually need fans too so the fans are loud on air coolers applies the same way to water cooling.
Decent air cooler GPUs don't even run high speed fans, 100mm fans at max 1500rpm are not loud. But yes there are aftermarket models that run screamer fans to compensate for bad die contact and heatpipe design, or too small fin stack. It's cheaper to run fans faster than to design a good air cooler. Almost all series have at least a couple models with a decent cooler, these aren't necessarily the most expensive models either.

If you want to add a water cooled GPU, I would pick up a used GPU with a block already on it. Waterblocks are expensive to buy new, but don't really add much value on second hand cards.
