    About the same as a Noctua cooler, adds more failure points, liquid, and costs more. I'll never understand these.

    Would be interesting to see the numbers against a D15 too. Although it seems the U12A does D15 levels of performance in a smaller package

    It's all about the looks, innnit. Having an AIO is just sooo much sexier than a plain old fashioned tower cooler.

    My 9900K @ 5GHz has been kept well under control with a £50-$60 Dark Rock 4 air cooler for the last 2yrs with no thermal issues whatsoever and I need never worry about a coolant leak.

    It's a complete myth that you need an AIO for top end CPU's.

    All you need is a decent air cooler and good airflow management.

    For me personally it's about 'internal case temps' when rendering more than looks and not potentially breaking the motherboard.

    To get good temps from an air cooler they're usually pretty beefy (the noctua NH-U12A is 1.2KG.... more than a bag of sugar) and with the tractors/lorries (I'm near farms and some use the double treaded caterpillar tractors) that go by they can shake the entire house so I'm not so keen on putting that much weight on my motherboard, actually I'm not that keen on the idea even without the tractors lol.

    From the article: "Bottom line: a high-performance all-in-one cooler that oozes"

    ...hmmm, maybe I'll skip this particular model then :-D
