    I wonder how long the pump designed to last on AIO this days, it seems to be the first thing to go bad.

    Would like to have longer warranty on those coolers

    612 words in this review, and 337 of them are used up going on about the RGB lighting. The whole idea of an AIO cooler is COOLING, and secondary to how well it does this, would be how RELIABLE it is (as water leaking into a PC case is frowned upon.)

    Do I have RGB lighting in my case? Yes. Do I have RGB on all my components that are required to make the thing run? No. Even though RGB is a "thing" now, it should not take first and second place in a review about a product whose sole purpose in life is to improve the operation of the PC. What are the dimensions of the radiator? What is the surface area of the fins? What is the static pressure of the fans? Does the pump come with thermal paste pre-applied, and if so, is it paste, or a pad, or something in-between? And how good is this thermal application? Will we have to clean it off and apply something better? Is there enough hardware included to mount the water block on most common Intel and AMD sockets? What are those sockets?

    I realize this isn't the standard in-depth hardware review, and there is a place for that, but the sheer amount of fluff in this advertisement just to capitalize on the sale of pretty lights seems off balance. Just my opinion.

    It's not a review, it is a press-release news item.

    Yes, understood. It's an advertisement, per se. I just got tired of reading half of the page and not finding out anything technical about it, besides the RGB (which is impressive for a cooler, tbh.) Can't wait to see the actual hardware review, as my Corsair is getting on in age and I may be looking for a replacement soon.

    Until someone can actually make an AIO that doesn't have a billion cables coming off the fans, the rad, the pump, etc then I shall just stick with what I have. Drives me up the wall when you spend so much time cable managing your build only to have between 3-5 cables coming off the block/pump.
