What’s better, a Nzxt Aio or a Corsair Aio

They're both Asetek coolers. Get whichever you like the look of more, both should have standard warranties and decent support.

Just buy whichever you like the look of they're both great brands. I use an NZXT Z73 and have no complaints with it, I'm assuming all of their other offerings are built to a similar standard.

 

Also CAM and ICUE are both reasonably decent software programs. You should have no issues with either

Arctic Liquid Freezer II is better as those have thicker radiators. And you dont need any bloatware to run those.

Second this recommendation. 

 

If you are after looks then keep in mind that both iCue and CAM both relatively closed ecosystems - CAM Even more so IIRC. ICue does at least have some compatibility with Asus, plus there is more Corsair stuff to add than NZXT. Totally not relevant for performance whatsoever, but I wanted to mention it.

Not entirely true about the pump depending on which CORSAIR cooler model the OP is looking at from our lineup.

Correct, we now support ASUS motherboard lighting control through CORSAIR iCUE.  Newer/current motherboards that support ArmoryCrate/Aura Sync should be all be supported in iCUE.  Older boards, it becomes a case by case.
