The H100 is pre-made of course. Presumably they warranty it watertight as well. It's not a DIY mass of plastic pipes and jubilee clips, that you fill up, turn on, and cross your fingers.

I got thinking about this, because we had a mass of plastic pipes and jubilee clips(the central heating system) explode on us yesterday, in a torrent of hot water and steam. If that happened inside a PC, or even if it sprang a leak, game over I think.

TBH I like air cooled, probably because I drove a VW Beetle for years.
