    I spent a good few years with a custom loop cooling cpu and sli setup but these days i dont need it, my H110i gt keeps my 6600k in check and my Evga 1070ftw doesnt need water cooling as its already cool and quiet, Ive had my share of air coolers too....especially liked the Coolermaster V8 and the Zalman 9900 i had back in the day but i like the open space in my case, on top of that my rad fans take the heat away from my case without having to blow it to another fan to do the same job.

    agree! But look wise i have to admit proper water cooling looks nice, it gives off a mechanical, pumping something complicated looking V12 engine look :D
    But i would always stick to air cool - water and electric do not mix :eek:

    Corsair warranty will replace ANY parts of your PC damaged if the cooler leaks. Corsairs customer service is first rate.

    I have to tell ya...My H100i v2 cooled PC has been in checked luggage twice..*
    Its been hard frozen once, i mean hard, 10 F (temp storage)
    When in Mexico it baked in a car parked in the sun for day at 100+ F
    Its Been installed in two PC,s also.
    Its not leaking or making even a slight motor noise. Just say,n.
    I couldn't have air cooling. The cooler would rip off the board going thru an airport luggage experience.

    *yes i know that's insane.

    Yes, sane people have laptop for the traveling needs and don't risk their rig by giving it to luggage.
    For moving, its best to at least taking whole rig apart and take essential parts with you on board.
    So having cooler installed while moving is bad idea in general.

    Glad it got going for you though.

    So, here comes the new 6th generation of Asetek uh? Nice to see noise-does-matter for AIO stuff.
