H80i for 45 Dollars


Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I was on Newegg today and I was this deal:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181057&nm_mc=EMC-IGNEFL100714&cm_mmc=EMC-IGNEFL100714-_-EMC-100714-Index-_-WaterCooling-_-35181057-L023B

The one thing is that it is refurbished and I was wondering if you would by a refurb AIO cooler?

IMO I wouldn't buy a refurbished AIO because of how many problems people have had with refurbished H100is...

I don't see the problem with getting something refurbed. If it's done by a proper company, not just some dude down the street it should be alright. There's obviously a higher change of failure, but for a price like that I think it'd be worth it.

Failing AIOs can cause frustrating to diagnose shorts as well in  my experience.
