Need good AIO suggestions

Recommended Posts

Looking for a 240mm rad, don’t really care if it has rgb or not just something that lasts and is a quality unit, no Corsair units please (have had a terrible experience with customer service and refuse to buy their products)

Honestly you are better off with a decent Noctua air cooler, but if you really want to go AIO, cooler master are my go to, have CM AIOs running in both my rigs and perform quite well.

The majority of liquid cooler AIO sold in the US are made by Asetek, including Corsair and NZXT (except for the M22).  Deepcool and Arctic Liquid Freezer are examples of some not made by Asetek.

I don’t mind if Corsair makes it, just don’t want to deal with their ridiculous customer support lol

A good AIO?

 

How about an DIY kit instead with some actually decent hardware????

I know, it's expensive. But it's better than 2 corsair AIOs retrofitted together on a hope and a prayer....

I can only comment on UK customer services, but cooler master has always been good for me here. 

 

With that said, I have heard many good things about the ARCTIC Liquid Freezer II 240. Including a great review from Gamers Nexus.

If I’m being honest, I like the low maintenance of AIO, don’t want to worry about cleaning out the system besides the rad and fans with some canned air. My case also would not fit that reservoir unfortunately

Nope, was more of an idea and a feeler. Not specifically just that kit.

Totally understand, however....

That's actually one of the "problems" with AIO. You can't maintain it.

I’ve had my aios last years no problem, I don’t mind replacing something every few years, it’s again a convenience

Every 4 years, it is best to get a new AIO. So far I have had Artic Cooling 240mm, Coolermaster 120mm and Corsair AIO 240 mm all fail. It doesn't matter which one you buy, it will fail. But hopefully only fail with the pump dying, which is most common. My Artic Cooling one blew the o-ring out and water sprayed from the cpu block ontop of a GTX 1070 ti. Surprisingly the motherboard turned off after tripping a short protection and after I used electric contact cleaner and a blower, everything turned back on including the GPU.

 

I know not everyone will have the same situation but all the AIO's I bought were like $69.99 on sale so maybe you shouldn't buy the cheapest AIO available like I did.

money is not really a concern, ill just get whatever is reliable that isnt a corsair aio lol. it seems like all aios have problems though, according to a lot of consumer reviews.
