    Yikes! Could use some cable management there.

    Why are you using liquid cooling if you are not overclocking?

    LOL! "Water cooling".

    It's just an AIO. It's much quieter than an air cooler and less likely to break your motherboard if you move your PC around.

    Most people that use AIO's are not overclocking.

    To me, "water cooling" is custom loop products. Those people typically ARE overclocking.

    Having tested both heatsinks and AIO's, I must take issue with the 'AIO's are quieter' message; they are not. An AIO merely moves the heat transfer from next to the CPU (heatsinks) to a remote location (usually the side of one's case). Transfer from working fluid to air is that same; there ain't no free. Where AIO's surpass heatsinks is total capacity for heat offloading. Quiet they may be, but quieter than the quietest heatsinks, no.

    I've never seen somone getting some random shorts like that on their motherboard are you sure no one is sabbotaging your pc when your travelling , maybe loosening some contacts making them overheat i dont know , do crawling bugs inside a pc case cause shorts i am just thinking random thoughts i will stop

    But do the "quietest heatsinks" cool as well as the quietest AIOs when "all things are equal" (e.g. maintaining the same CPU temperature either way).

    Keep in mind that I am well aware that most, if not all, AIO's have the absolute worse fans in the world on them for the application.

    Seems that AIO has a slight lead on CPU temps and air cooling has a slight lead on GPU temps, noise normalized.

    Funny. I always thought that AIO developers had picked the best fans for the purpose. As for quietness: it depended on the AIO. A single-fan AIO would at best cool even with a heatsink. This was especially true when the single-fan AIO sported a 120mm rad instead of a 140mm rad. But with double fan, even a 120x240mm AIO could beat out a heatsink. As for isothermal situations, you would have to test specifically for that; I did not. What I was testing for was max cooling. But a 360x120mm AIO or a 140x280 AIO would likely be quieter when tested far from its max.
