How much CPU can something like this handle? The linked product listing doesn't say anything about watts, power, or even BTUs. I don't see a list of approved CPUs anywhere, either.

This is regarding the last gen of this product.

The package thermals of my 4770k hit around 135w when running prime95 (max heat) with my liqmax ii, and coretemp reports avg of each core hitting the high 70s at lowest fan speed, and mid 60s at the highest fan speed.

Similar to othe AIOs, It won't win any awards for the best cooling of all time, but leaving it at the lowest speed, I don't hear a thing.

Shouldnt have any issue with cooling pretty much any CPU at stock speeds. When you start overclocking though things could get a little dicey, if we're talking the 120mm version here. The 240mm could cool anything pretty much. The 120mm might struggle with something like a 5950x or 3950x, maybe 3900x/5900x as well, but if you're dropping $400+ on a CPU, you probably shouldnt be putting a $30 AIO on it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOSc3DT3UFY

I think this guy is running in a really cold ambient room if he's getting 70c CPU load temps on a 2600x on a stock spire cooler, but you can see just how much the version II of this 120mm cools it down at load, he lost about 13c (57c) on load going from the stock spire cooler to the 120mm Version II of this liqmax cooler.

For $30 it's really a good deal and big upgrade from stock cooling - assuming there's no issues with the corrosion guys like gamers nexus found in the threadripper versions of these coolers. If you can fit the 240mm for $10 more though, probably a worthwhile upgrade especially if you have an overclocked or simply more hot CPU.

Something like the 120mm version would be great for stock 3600/3700x type chips though, or say a 10400/9400 or something of the sort.

These leaks apparently....I think I'll just stick with fans. If a fan fails it'll stop and my computer will shutdown automatically. If a liquid cooler fails...it's taking the whole rig with it.
Didn't know that. I got a water cooler from a reputable brand that still runs fine over 7 years. But I will keep that in mind on my next build

false, motherboards can be set to warn on temp and utilities like Core Temp can also.
CPUs also throttle these days. you'd only lose your rig if you didn't know what you were doing.
While that's true, if it leaks you can mess up your board and GPU. I had a from a different brand and my CPU throttled but the liquid ended up frying the board/GPU. That being said, I am still using an AIO cooler.

FWIW, AIO coolers do not necessarily out perform standard fan/heat sink coolers. Theoretically they keep some of the heat out of your case.
I have an AIO, and my case looks sloppier (but has a bit of a Wow factor) and temps aren't any different.
Since you may use a larger fan, noise levels might go down. I did not audibly notice it to be any quieter.

On my next setup, I wouldn't get an AIO cooler.

Technically yes but you'll have to do some modding. It depends on what gpu you're using.

Heres a video that might help (Linus used zip ties): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L...IXTechTips

I feel like there are a lot of questions regarding this statement.

Sure some heat sinks could work better than some smaller AIO coolers but I would want to know how you have yours setup. With a push/pull fan combo on an AIO cooler, there really shouldn't be a reason it would not out perform a normal fan/heat sink combo. I would also recommend upgrading the fans on the AIO cooler to a higher rated one to see if more air will help keep temps down.

Lots of misinformation here:
AIOs or water cooling is not magic. All coolers are limited by fin cooling area pretty much. Water coolers have the added benefit of higher thermal mass most of the time, but a large air-cooler with same mass and fin area, will have roughly the same perfromance.

At the end of the day, it is more practical to have a WC system with really large fin area (really big or multiple radiators) and multiple fans, simply because you can route them around the case instead of seating them just above the CPU, but most high-end air-coolers in the $90-150 with 2x120~140mm fans, have the performance 240mm AIOs have.

Now, both AIOs and PC WC pumps, just like air coolers and fans etc, have rpm control. If the pump or fans of the AIO doesn't run, the MoBo will know and warn you. If all goes south and the cooler - any cooler - doesn't work or doesn't work well enough, the CPU will heat up to its TD max and then throttle down to a lower power state, or shut off.

The only "risk" with WC is the chance there is a leak, and IF the is one, there MIGHT be damage to other parts. It is not a given that if there is one, things will burn or corrode or w/e.

No need to panic.

Most cases you mount the mobo vertically, so a leak wouldnt drip all over your hardware. Ive seen some wc disasters on datacenter servers, but as someone said in this thread, the fluid is usually not water, but a mineral that is not conductive and shouldnt cause corrosion. A real mess to clean maybe, but rubbing alcohol and some tlc and you'd be gtg if you did happen to have a leak on your gear

I'm actually aware of two different friends within the last five years whom both had AIOs leak, both being CoolerMaster products. The liquid landed on the GPU, which then ended up going into the PCI lane, and eventually dripped onto the PSU killing the PSU, GPU and the one PCI lane. I'd show pictures of one of the cases, but I don't believe SlickDeals allows that. I'm personally on the train who doesn't quite trust the AIOs, especially considering large air coolers perform the same.

Pretty sure Gamers Nexus, highly watched, highly regarded on YouTube, had at least one show about the leakage/corrosion of at least one Enermax aio models.

Just get a noctua air cooler. They work almost just as good and no liquid worries.

it would be able to shut down the computer and pump obviously if temps start rising
the liquid is supposed to be non-conductive so a small amount isn't fatal
