Works perfectly and no leaks


Saved Ticket #: [Please Type Here]

Basically going for a fully decked out Aventum X

For the custom Aventum X AMD and all, there are three cooling solutions listed. Hydroflux flex tube, hardline, and copper. There is also factory default air cooler, and some common market solutions. What I want to know is which cooling solution is the most reliable? Also copper is more expensive but is it better? I don't want to have to service my desktop 3 years down the road due to leaky hoses or such so what is the best of all options based on pros and con's.

Welcome to the forum Rosenbergda !

Aventum X is a great watercooling rig that is equipped with 3 big radiators.   
DS does not Overclock AMD processors, but the processor will be expertly cooled and your graphics card can be Overclocked very safely in Aventum.

Flex tubing is the most practical for liquid cooling as it handles routine maintenance, movement and shipping very well. Easily fixed or replaced by you. Can be customized with tubing color choices or most practical clear so you can see the coolant in the loop.   Fluids can also be had clear or in colors to personalize the loop.

Hardline tubing comes in clear pvc or nickel plated copper.   It’s all about looks.   This tubing is not flexible at all, so movement and shipping can cause problems at the fittings.   More difficult to do maintenance or repairs around, the sections must be custom bent to fit in your rig.   Many people just like the appearance of straight lines of hard line tubing. When we hear of leaks in shipping here on the forum, it’s usually hard line tubing not handling shipping bounces very well.
