Does the water need to flow?

It's fine to leave it. Bear in mind they sit in a box on a shelf for months before you buy them and they work fine.

HeyGuys!

I am going away on a trip for a month.

I have an i7 4960k being cooled with the h220x, and I was wondering if its ok to leave it off for the whole month (leaving nov 3rd till 26th).

I can ask my roomate to turn it on and off if it's necessary, but can't I just leave it off and just turn it back on when I get back?

Yeah, it'll be fine buddy. It's a closed loop system so it's covered as far as anti-corrosive agents are concerned. You won't get any liquid thickening or blocking any part of the AIO. Enjoy your trip!

Shouldn't be a problem. Unsold ones sit on selves for month. :D
