    That's a pretty smart product - monoblock bragging rights without needing to actually put together a custom loop to use the board

    Honestly that looks like a nightmare if the pump fails...

    Not only would you need a new cpu cooler but you'd also need to find a way to cool the other bits that propriety cooler is covering.

    Also got to be honest, I'd have preferred a design that has the pump (and refillable res) on the radiator and 'standard' watercooling fittings 'just in case' the pump side of things fail or you want to expand the loop etc.
