What is the best AiO water cooling kit? A very good question indeed! Luckily for us all, we’re taking a quick look at the range of AiO Water Cooling kits from Cooler Master, Corsair, EVGA, ASUS, Deepcool, Gigabyte and NZXT available now at PB Tech.
A quick note for those who are new to AiO (All in One) Water Cooling and why we want it; having a water cooling kit fitted inside your Gaming PC can reduce noise & temperatures not only on the component it's directly fitted too, but also the overall system due to the way the kits flexible radiator placement lets you move the heat away from other components, also, the small form factor or AiO kits often allow for better airflow over the motherboard itself. Also worth mentioning, some of the kits look absolutely fantastic, but that's subjective so for now...
Let's kick back and CHILL :P
The excellent 120mm Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML120R is the current king of AiO Water Cooling kits, oh-so affordable and optimised for low noise while still being extremely easy to install with a 120mm radiator and compatibility with both the latest Intel and Ryzen sockets, and also older CPU socket types.
Installing is easy thanks to very smart design, small touches like the way in which Cooler Master made the bracket attachment screws come in from underneath so they hold in place while you secure them and the included RGB hub for users that don't have a dedicated RGB header on their motherboard put this kit ahead of the rest.
And speaking of RGB lighting features, it's also compatible with Asus AURA, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSi Mystic Light Sync and ASRock RGB LED making this kit pretty darn appealing for anyone that's working with multiple RGB components in their system. There is also 240mm Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240R available for those looking for a smaller water cooling kit at a great price :)

NZXT have continued to improve their design for the Kraken AiO Water Cooling series and the latest Z63 and Z73 models are crazy good. Improvements include a rotatable cap for builds with tight RAM spacing, so we can now simply twist to suit the build - such a good feature!
With a very bright, 2.36” LCD screen on the CPU block that's capable of displaying 16 million colours, we can now completely customise the look of our CPU cooler with custom images, sweet gifs or insightful CAM data too - this is by far the clearest screen of its kind too, really impressive stuff!
The tubing itself is utterly beautiful as well, sleeved from the twisty CPU block right into the radiator. It's also the only kit in our top 5 list that doesn't have an RGB on the fans themselves, making it ideal for a build that doesn't want all the bling.
With this in your system, it's going to turn heads, this kit is so attractive to the eyes (and ears, it's super quiet) that your undoubtedly going to have trouble focusing on your screen :) Part of Cooler Master new Mirage series and that fancy pump exposes the impeller within.
Configured for high airflow with 2x 120MM MasterFan Mirage ARGB, and that A indicates the addressable nature of the fans, allowing us to have true rainbow effects or solid colours. The tubing is both durable and flexible for perfect positioning within your system.
Inside you'll find AM4 socket bracket within the box making is savvy for your next Ryzen build, and you're also good to use with Coffee Lake Intel CPU which continue to work with the 1151 socket type.
NEW! A glorious new addition to the range here at PB Tech is this AORUS 240 which features a rather unique (and certainly eye-catching) 60mm circular full-colour display! It does not just look good though, you can actually select GPU model ID, clock rates, temperatures, fan speeds and more to be shown on this one - it's utterly awesome looking and gives you instant access to live stats!
The new AORUS water cooling setups are extremely well made too, the kit feels premium not only on the fancy pump, but also on the connected RGB fans and radiator.
Compatible with both Intel and AMD these kits are sure to make their way into many Gaming PCs going forward, fair enough to, they look fantastic.
Corsair well and truly jumped into the premium addressable LED all-in-one water cooling game. Refining their already excellent coolers legacy with this new series of Platinum options that feature vivid RGB goodness.
16 individually controlled RGB LEDs light up the pump head to produce stunning, customisable lighting effects to match your build. Each fan is capable of running from 400 (oh so quiet) to 2,400 RPM (Seriously chilling) while in operation, and a thermally optimised cold plate and low-noise pump design for high performance, quiet cooling.
For RGB customisation Corsair have continued to improve their already excellent iCue software suite. iCUE unites all of your compatible Corsair components and devices, making it easy to customise all connected components and gaming gears.
With sizes to suit a range of chassis, and the wonderful white colour Corsair Hydro Series H100i RGB PLATINUM SE, the latest water cooling kits sure are looking good! Check out the full range in the Corsair Store today!
