Because IMO if you want to try out water then build a loop, for one just about any custom loop ( as long as you are not a idiot ) will eat this for breakfast, for two there is no "teardown" with this unit there by limiting me to where I can/would place the rad, 3 you cant add anything to these units, though TBH you wouldnt want to since the single 120 rad would never handle anything beyond the cpu. and most important 4 because a custom loop can become a expression of that persons tastes beyond that unit.
So for me I just dont like them, they offer me nothing beyond halfassed temp ( for water Curt not against air) As I stated I can see why ppl might use them but that just isnt for me, like I said if I want to go water then I would do a custom loop and then this unit just couldnt hold up tempswise, or looks wise. That would be why I dont care for them in a nutshell.
