    Hi All,

    I've been out of the loop (pun intended) for a few years and just getting back into it now with a couple of system builds (i5 9600k & R5 2600X).

    Given the same radiator size, how much difference is there between a retail AIO and a kit such as an Alphacool which has a copper 30mm radiator.

    How quiet are the pumps on the kits in comparison to AIO's?

    Not much in it to be honest, I had H100i Pro and went custom loop and noticed little difference temps but i was running Corsair ML fans on the custom loop as well, D5 pump was silent tho
