    @atomicWAR - Despite you acknowledging most of what I have argued, you still persist in embarrassing yourself.

    "My CPU even running for 24 straight hours under full load never exceeds 70C".

    I will only bother to reply to that point since it is so laughable! 70 degrees celsius despite all that water-cooling hassle??!?! Exactly my point!

    Good air cooling done right can easily achieve that! What a joke! LOL!
    See Hexus' own reviews of the NoFan CR-95C IcePipe Fanless CPU Cooler: https://hexus.net/tech/reviews/cooli...cepipe/?page=2

    - 72.2 degrees celsius with the chasis fans turned OFF!
    - 60 degrees celsius with the chasis fans turned on!

    Fanboys like you are such a joke!

    Re: QOTW: Will your next PC be air- or liquid-cooled?

    You will not get a temp that low with the voltage I run with air cooling where I live...full stop. Ambient temps are extremely important, something you seem happy to ignore. I would no more tell someone who doesn't overclock living in the far north where ambient temps can be 60-70F or less, that water cooling was needed. When house hold temps can reach 90F (summer time with AC on...80F or so in winter), water cooling becomes much more useful. They do not make an air cooler with a big enough rad for my needs. Even the famed Noctua d15 would have trouble where my pc is in use. One reason why my water rad is 80mm thick @ 360mm. Yes water cooling has more hassle but for me it works best for my use case. And if someone is a joke of a fan boy, find a mirror. You choose to only apply the knowledge that fits your argument and ignore everything else. At least I am big enough to admit both the strengths and weakness of both setups. I dare you to do the same...oh wait fan boys like yourself just ignore logic so clearly we are done here. Have a nice day!

    My next PC will probably be water-cooled, mainly because I have a brand-new and unused liquid cooling system aitting here waiting for a PC to put it in.

    Do I need it? Not really. But it's here so what-the-heck?

    You're an idiot who concedes that there is no disputing the physics involved in cooling that I pointed out, and yet you still cling to your fangirl guns and embarrass yourself.

    That Hexus review was nearly 8 years ago! Using one of the better air cooling solutions back then! For Sandy Bridge! The ones available now are way better! Get up to speed with technological developments please! All you need is good airflow in and out of the chasis nowadays with good air cooling heatpipe tech!

    The reason your solution is so crap is because you can't even do water cooling right. Despite you trying to get street cred by acknowledging the physics I pointed out, you clearly do not really understand it. That's typical of fangirls. You probably think running a radiator outside your PC (what a butt ugly PC you have!) is enough. But its not! Its the airflow that matters! Its the amount of cool air blowing against the radiator pipes/fins that count in the end. Ultimately its still an air-cooled solution - GEDDIT!

    What an idiot!

    Have had both, Probably go with AIO RGB with LCD display low profile for looks.
    Either air or water works, What's more important is having a stable ambient room temperature, This is where my aircon wins!

    Re: QOTW: Will your next PC be air- or liquid-cooled?

    My brother in law had a PC custom built (£2,500 i think) it was liquid cooled he had it 2 years and then it leaked and blew some of the components, I offered to fix it for free he refused saying he'd get an expert to look at it.. (Long story short he was going to throw it away I took it home as trash and got it working using £50 of parts! he wasn't too happy about that)

    My son had a liquid-cooled PC using a "Deepcool Genome II case" a year and a half later it leaked from the CPU block luckily my son had the sense to turn it off quick.

    I stripped it down and used a normal heatsink & fan and its running better now than before well not as quiet but strangely temperatures have dropped on it maybe it was faulty in the first place, but I know we will not ever use liquid cooling again.

    Also a friend of mine has given up on them too, not worth the risk of leaks there too common.

    Air cooling. It's cheaper and much simpler. Could possible consider water cooling in the future, but not at this point in time.
