I appreciate all the great answers/info/education on my previous post.
Just one more.
I can save money on a DS config by swapping out the default 1650 and put in my current 2060 and get by for a couple mope years.

I am worried about the AIO cooling...does it also cool the gpu? When the time comes to upgrade will that be an issue?

That's a good strategy to get more bang for your bucks. You can try to sell off the 1650 and perhaps get a surprising amount of money for it, if you can't use it yourself.

The 2060 will use it's own cooling fans just as it has for the time you've had it. You shouldn't encounter any issues.

The AIOs (All-In-One) coolers are the upgrade from air coolers for the cpu. They are excellent self contained coolers and are pretty trouble free. If something goes wrong, it is usually the pump failing (rare) and not leakages (they do happen but far far less frequent).

To have a gpu cooled by liquid coolant you have to go hybrid (where the gpu uses its own AIO attached to it permanently) or a cooling loop where the cooling system is open to add all sorts of hardware. The pump is stronger and the plumbing can be copper, hardline or flexible tubing. They can leak and pump can also fail (although very rare). There is no better cooling than an open loop since you can add as many radiators as you want (in or outside the case) and the AIOs are limited by what is attached to them (1, 2 or 3 fan radiators , but only one rad).

So no worries if you want to change gpu down the line with an AIO.

Hostess Cupcakes will work!

I have my first AIO on my new Digital Storm CPU I got last month. I will admit I glance inside occasionally to look for leaks. Definitely keeps my 5900x nice & cool with a push pull fan system.

My Velox has 3 fans in the front and my AIO radiator fits over 2 of them and then there are 2 fans on the radiator itself that provides the push pull airflow capability.

My GPU has 3 fans on it and they don't even turn on until you are into heavy gaming. So I don't think not having my GPU water cooled is a big deal since I am not a big Overclocker and most CPU's & GPU's OC themself pretty good if you keep them reasonably cool.

I am starting to be a believer in AIOs. Although the full HydroLux Pro with cooper pipes would be tempting if I respawn from this life eventually with a bunch of money.

My last DS system lasted 12 years with only having to replace a fan. I hope my new one will last as long and be a comfort to me in my old age. I will be 70 in June and hope to last as least as long as my new DS Beast.
