So for me. The computer was built and used heavy for the first year. After that it was mostly just used to surf the internet and download some things here and there due to my car accident.

I'm a mechanic by trade so I know what it means when thing stop moving easy. I think to be on the safe side I will change back to air cooling till I can replace it when I upgrade. Don't need it leaking or dying when I cannot afford to replace everything.



If I was not renting I totally would. As soon as I buy a house in the next year or so I'm going to build a wall mounted PC. Always loved the look of one just bolted to the wall. The wife will kill me but I don't care.
I just picked up some new Hyper 212 Black Editions on the MemX sale for a clients PC. I've always been a fan of the Hypers, but these new ones are quite a lot better. I was blown away by the new fit and finish, the new fans look/sounds very good, and the base machining is top notch. Very impressed, will be using them exclusively moving forward.

That's good to hear. And they're pretty slick looking black too I must say! :)

I try to stay away from swivel joints and try to keep with strait joints when ever possible just because that is a more likely failure point. After a couple years I have seen them get too loose and start to leak on the joint itself.

Honestly... there is no rule of thumb for all AIOs. There are just too many variables. The only thing you should go by is the warranty period. Companies put a ton of effort into offering a long enough warranty to be persuasive to buyers BUT still be on the right side (well actually left) of the bathtub curve of failure rates. IF it comes with a 3 year warranty replace every 3 to 3.5 years. If 5yr warranty every 5 to 5.5. Basically once you are OOW you are into the increased failure rate zone. You may get lucky w/ 4yrs on a 3year designed part. You may not. It just comes down to luck. Eventually it will fail. IE plan to yank and replace when the warranty is expired... its the 'best before date' of the AIO.

Same. I nearly doubled the MTBF of my D-Tek DB-1 pump. MTBF of 50,000hrs, and I've been running it since about 2008... Based on that I finally replaced it in my recent rebuild, but I'll be keeping it around as a spare! Also, I recently took apart one of the dead H55's from last week. I'm not really sure how the pump impellers work, but it definitely wouldnt spin on its own and had a ton of friction. I'm assuming there is some kind of coating that may have just worn away over time and it eventually seized.
