Finding right build

Options
Hi, I am currently looking for a gaming pc that does not have liquid as I am not that good with computers. I am afraid. I may break it if maintenance is required on the cooling system. Is this pc liquid cooled? https://www.microcenter.com/product/613824/powerspec-g464-gaming-computer

This is another one I was looking at which I believe is liquid cooled. My other option I guess to to have one built. They just don’t have all the components available at the micro center near me.

    The Powerspec system is liquid cooled, but it's an AIO system. AIO water cooling systems are closed loop systems. You'll never do any maintenance or have to refill it at all. Basically you'll just run it until the pump dies and replace it at that point, which should be several years down the road or longer. It's a simple solution even if you're building on your own. You attach the water block just like any after market air cooler and mount the radiator like case fans essentially.

    We can certainly do a custom build for you and we do custom water cooling loops as well. Custom loops are different, as they are assembled, filled and leak tested. They do have to be drained, cleaned and refilled from time to time. Custom water cooling loops do offer far greater performance, the pumps you'll find, either the D5 or DDC have considerably higher flow rates than what you'll find in AIO's.

    Thank you for your response. What about the Alienware R10 you guys have? Is it also an AIO? https://www.microcenter.com/product/624234/dell-alienware-aurora-r10-gaming-computer

    Based on what I can find it's a 120MM Asetek AIO water cooler. The Powerspec is a Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240L RGB.

    thank you! so I purchased the Aurora R10 from you guys. I was expecting an Alienware keyboard and mouse but only received a generic dell keyboard and mouse. Is this normal? I watched unboxing videos of the R10 and the PC came with an Alienware keyboard and mouse in every video.
