    Another system built with an AIO CPU cooler; if they aren't that great, why do SI use them...?

    It's not as linear as "they're not that great."
    AIOs are usually compared to Noctua, which is honestly le créme de la créme of air cooling.
    They take longer to heat-soak because the heat is transferred elsewhere, thus usually taking longer to reach peak temperature than [Noctua] air coolers, even if that temperature is higher.

    Regardless of that, AIO has a coolness factor that air cooling does not.

    Safer shipping. An AIO has a little block and pump attached to the board and the big-ass radiator mounted to the case. A tower cooler has a big chunk of metal hanging at some distance off of the board. Delivery truck goes over a large bump or air freight has a hard landing, and you now have a RMA shipment to deal with for a rather large package (and a big-ticket component you need to eat the cost of replacing due to damage).

    Well, the *real* answer will also factor in the pricing/arrangements Corsair can give an SI. Notice which case and RAM is also being used.

    Ohh... and the PSU - nice little arrangement, that one.
