    What is shown, is that is barely any better than Air Coolers, I would expect even more cooled down when using liquid cooling, so it does question a few things as of what they are trying to sell us on general.

    And it is not just one brand of 'water' cooled loop but alot of them, it must be a bad quality radiator or something or slow loop or whatever... or worse, crap quality sinks that leads nada heat away instantly or simply just too difficult to cool down.

    That is the case for 90% of AIOs, particularly of this size - you can get better results, with quieter operation, from a good air cooler.

    AIOs are not typically there for performance - they are there for looks/convenience/space saving around the CPU imo.

    The point about Liquid Cooling and or Phasechanging and anything down that line in my head is about getting temperatures under 30 degrees under heavy load, for increased stability, yes I know they say these GPU's and CPU's is designed to be able to handle the heat, but they will run better cooler, why does Hexus not show the competetion that actually cools down stuff, and how much or less noise they make.

    Then I can't use Delta and Actual C for anything at all.
