    Aio leaks is overrated, i have H90 for what now almost 5years and not a single issue with it.
    Was also my first aio cooler back then.


    I would go with something like h110 or the new model h115i?

    Or better yet ekwb predator 240 if you can still find it.

    I remember ekwb said they will release a new version this spring and now its almost winter and still no sign.. all they did was some custom imo not really aio solution..

    My 5 years old corsair H60 died recently. Pump just were unable to circulate water and causing overheating. No matter how differently I tried to place radiator, it just wouldn't work.
    So yeah, just got huge scythe 20$ air cooler for replacement and it does perfect job.

    While having superior cooling abilities is + for AOC, the complexity of mechanism making it less reliable comparing to simple air cooler.

    Thank you for your replies - and thanks to the admin to sort out the bad weed :)

    I am going to either pick up a Cryorig R1 Universal or Phanteks PH-TC14PE . I am yet to decided which will fit the best in my setup :)
