Re: [Parts Check] Basic Stock Cooler Question

It's a closed-loop cooler, completely maintenance free, but the most you can mod out are the fans. It is halfway between an air cooler and complete water setup in terms of efficiency.

Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

Tthat sounds like something I could totally deal with. If I'm getting you correctly, you never have to change/drain the cooling fluid?

Correct. But when the pump fails, you trash the whole thing (or send it in). Still, for $50-100, it beats the $500 for setup + constant monitoring of the fish bowl.

That sounds fantastic. About three months ago I pulled apart a friend's liquid cooled system, and I didn't like it at all.

The way you're describing it sounds much better.
