    I see from the graphs, that the Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 runs a little cooler and is much quieter, it also costs much less. Who needs water cooling?

    personally, I can only see myself using water cooling in a small number of situations, in a very small case (Loque Ghost S1 MK2 is one contender), a very high TDP card (using a 360mm/280mm rad), or I go the whole way and include the graphics cards.
    one concern I do have with giant air coolers is the stress they put on the motherboard, the Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 weighs in at 1.13KG\2.5lb. not sure whether that is a legit concern or not.
    also, SOME big air coolers can interfere with the placement of RAM.

    Nobody. It's a cool-factor thing. And not to say there's anything wrong with that of course, how many things have we all bought because it was cool, vs the cheaper, better, but blander option ? But ya, it'll be a cold day in hell before I buy an AIO.

    That is, until I win the lottery. Then I shall commission the most insanest, watery, coolest (in all senses) loop setup ever. Because..well, it's just so damn cool

    '...but the preferred method is to connect the RGB cable to a 5V motherboard header as compatibility is guaranteed with boards from ASRock, Asus, Gigabyte and MSI.'
    I keep seeing this, but most motherboards like mine that has MSI Mystic light, ONLY have a 12v RGB header, it's a bit misleading to say it's compatible with these motherboards when infact for many it's not.

    The real use cases for watercooling are limited. Myself, I got it to allow a decent overclock when the time comes but is it better than a decent air cooler? Probably not. Is it Gucci? Oh yes.

    Re: Deepcool Gamer Storm Castle 240 EX

    this is one of the few RGB implementations that makes me look a second time and I cant help it. Deepcool's swirly whirly colours so make me happy.. can't help it

    I'm a devoted air cooler too. But there are cases (literally and metaphorically) where it's good to have a radiator on the top of the case and an AiO water cooler clamped to the block.

    and besides... those swirly whirly lights.......
