[Amazon.ca] [Amazon Canada] CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i v2 - $109.99

Hello,

If you were looking for a reliable CPU Cooler get it now.

I got the cooler at this price during the Prime Day and looks like they have it at this price again.

They have them in stock at the moment.
Happy shopping!

I would not like to speak poorly of the deal as it is a solid price, but I would caution against closed loops if one is thinking of reusing the cooler in a later build. AIO watercoolers have their advantages over air coolers which are primarily in size, mounting and slightly lower load temps (temps are practically the same at the highest end). However, after 5 years on my H100i I was experiencing significantly worse temperatures due to fluid that has naturally evaporated in the loop during use and although one may try to disassemble their cooler, usually disassembly and reassembly will lead to other problems in the future because most AIO coolers are not meant to be serviced. Despite air coolers being bulky and tedious to get ram clearance. They present a better long term value if you have the real estate in your case. You could also go for a custom loop, but the performance per dollar drastically diminishes and they require regular maintenance.

in a closed loop, where does this "naturally evaporated fluid" go?

You can get worse temps due to dried up paste, which happens with any air or liquid cooler. It isn't hard to open up the case to clean + reapply thermal paste.
Things can happen with liquid coolers: pump goes bad, leaks... but naturally evaporated liquid?

Tubing is not glass/metal but plastic/rubber and coolant will evaporate but very slowly. In fact it does not really evaporate but permeate in the tubes.

Yes. It's [kinda] a thing...even in what's considered as a closed-loop (consumer grade).
