Comparing Gaming computers to Standard computers.

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Not so much as a Equipment problem, but more of Information.  My present computer is the HP AMD A10, and I'm curious of the Gaming Computers.  Is buying a Liquid Cooled Gaming computer for regular non-gaming use a Overkill?  I'm not really into Gaming, I just like the way they look.  I don't know the Down side or Upside of the Liquid Cooled computers or anything.  If this can't be answered here can you direct me to where to look?

Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.


All-In-One (AIO) CPU liquid cooled systems look great with the RGB lighting.


This setup is overkill if you are not overclocking the CPU and not into gaming.


AIO liquid cooled CPU systems introduce multiple failure points, the fan, pump failure, and potential leaks. A air cooled system has one failure point; the CPU heatsink fan, which is easily replaced.


I build systems based on needs. CPU Liquid cooled systems for gaming and overclocking.


Air cooled systems for average use.
