Are Aio's reliable?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

How long do Aio's last if I use them on a regular basis of 2 to 3 hr of gaming 3 times a week ? Will they leak or will the pumps fail in like 3 years  or so? Using  the cooler master 240 lite

You went with the cheapest AIO available, i dont expect it to last more then a few years at most. You should avoid that CM series of AIOS. Most other decent brands tend to last 3-5 years.

Oh, i see. So, i should go with like corsair or deepcool right?

Both companies have cheap AIOS that have the same probelms as well. Basically the only reason to do AIO's is either space in the case, or you have a high thermal chip like a 9900k and you need thermals to be in check, or for quieter operation compared to air coolers.
