AIO water coolers seem to be all the rage, but we're here to tell you that big air coolers are where it's at. Probably.

Getting rid of my car's water pump and installing a Noctua fan now.

AIO watercoolers are great for small form factor builds: they are space saving and they are less prone to heat buildup which occurs in cases with small volume. That's definitely a worthy factor omitted in the testing that's done in the video showing a big tower with a huge case volume.

One other advantage of water cooling is that in more compact computers the small pad is a lot easier to fit on the motherboard than a massive air cooler.

This video made me think AIO's were crap. But seeing a new benchmark from Gamers Nexus indicates AIO's have improved greatly in 3 years... and the 2 fan 240/260 models are pretty quiet.

Should I use water coolers?

I would love to see a follow-up video comparing different companies AIO's since they do have slight differences which do lead to measurably different results in temperature. Also the same but with air coolers.

Personally, fan/heat sink cooling is simple, cheap and effective.

I've always refused liquid cooling due to the maintenance and catastrophe possible when it comes to leaking. I just feel so much safer using air cooling and getting roughly the same performance if not better in this case via Noctua

I know the potency of AIOs top mounted vs front mounted was brought up, but frankly, with a testing video like this, since you were testing for noise levels anyway, it would've been worth it to have data points for a front mounted AIO as well.

My last build was AIO and the one I'm building now will also be AIO. I had previously rocked air using nothing but Noctua. Honestly, both applications work for me. I prefer AIO for the noise levels being pretty much ambient to non-existent. Sure it's pricier, but honestly the AIO cooling solutions we have now are pretty nice for the price.

Noctua is one of the few companies that makes an air cooled heatsink specifically for threadripper cpus, it has a bigger plate to cover all the cores/dies on the cpu. Have been using it since day one and would recommend it, using it on a 1950x that mines when I'm not using the pc. No problems with it for a couple years now.

I do wonder what position they mounted their AIO for this testing as that can change a lot and because of the increased awareness now how to properly mount your radiator etc for increased performance. Great video though

I think this experiment has to be revisited with having the AIO's using a push/pull configuration just like the NH-U12A.

I’m really curious about how if Linus was building a PC that was to be portable, he would equip it with an AIO.
