Yes, it is.
If the pump didn't go bad, you can still refill the cooling system. Even though you can do this, why not get a cheap air cooler? I'm still using a Noctua Nh-D14, that is, since 6 or 7 years ago.

Absolutely not. This is the thing they don't want customers to know, these AIO/CLC cheap water cooling premade units are more of a use once for one machine's "acceptable" use time before you upgrade again and have to buy another AIO/CLC for it. You get a few years out of these and then it's bye bye out of warranty and up to you to either discard the waste or refurbish them.

They are sort of a lazy way to water cooling.

When i put together the pc, it was for the look of have a radiator in the pc. I tried my old hyper evo 212, waiting for the new unit and i can see the difference in temps, especially if the a/c is off.

15.5 years? :eek:

I've only ever owned two AIOs, the first one lasted ~ 5-6 years before I sold it and I have no idea when it died, I'm still using the second one and I got it in 2018.

H80 has a 5 year warranty so surely it's not designed to fail before then ;)

Now, i'm in the search for a good air cooler or a custom water loop (now it's reliability, forget looks) you won't see it with the side panel on.
