Too many bloody wires coming off the CPU block, give me a nice & simple air cooler with a few extra degrees on the temps, any day of the week.
To be fair, the cables are fairly easy to route so they can't be seen, and it's not like a dual fan air cooler doesn't have cables to deal with.
My biggest issue with ALL AIO coolers is the stiffness of the tubing - makes the install considerably more difficult than it needs to be.
I've got a little tiny MSI Dragon 120mm AIO and it's the best cooler I've ever had. Got a push/pull AP15 GT setup and I can have my max OC with it on a 4790K. It's in such a small confined chassis too. I just don't think these big rads are necessary anymore and I've had 480mm custom kit in the past. When such a cheap tiny cooler can get so close I just don't think these expensive coolers are necessary. Defo would be tempted if I had the room just don't think the cooling would be much better. Just to note the Dragon was a £35 refurb from scan and has never skipped a beat.
