In the past, installing a liquid cooling system could be a headache. Apart from being expensive and low stock availability, you also had to have experience working with pumps, water blocks, radiators, reservoirs, tubing, fittings and so on. Then, you might have to worry about coolant leaking all over your expensive hardware components due to improper installation. The fun could turn to a nightmare if something went wrong.
However, nowadays you can easily find a more affordable liquid cooling solution in the form of closed-loop or all-in-one (AIO) coolers. These AIO coolers are available in numerous sizes,designs, and manufactured by various vendors such as Cooler Master, Corsair, NZXT, EVGA, Fractal Design, RAIJINTEK, DEEPCOOL, and ID-COOLING, just to name a few.
