NZXT Kraken AIO vs Standard Air Cooler
I am finishing gathering all the parts for my first rig, and I know the NZXT Kraken x53 240mm has really caught my attention for the features and the price. I know water cooling has scientifically been shown to be more effective for managing CPU temperature, but I have also heard about some of the risks of using liquid cooling and possible damage it can cause as opposed to the ease of troubleshooting a fan that isn't working. Should I steer clear of an AIO cooler in favor of an air cooler, or would using a radiator based AIO like this Kraken x53 be a nice addition going forward? The price doesn't really matter to me in this case, as my main concern is how much risk am I adding should I choose to go with an AIO.
