And a counter point to the "omg they may leak" is....installing a two - three pound cooler means your mobo MAY break. They sure as shite will BEND over time under all that weight. Yes that is silly, but a leak in a modern AIO WC cooler is about as likely as a broken mobo from going WAY over the Intel / AMD socket design weight limit. If you want to be truly safe....run the Intel stock cooler or stay under (IIRC) 550 grams INCLUDING the fan. Otherwise it is ALL risk vs reward. Pick your poison and cowboy up....or dont OC and run stock.

YMMV
