Default Self-Contained Water Coolers: Xigmatek AIO vs. Evercool Silver Knight

The idea of the self-contained water cooling is to make water cooling simpler. These two units cannot even be recognized as water cooling systems. They mount just like a heatpipe tower and are a one-piece, no-maintenance, no-risk water cooling system. That concept is certainly intriguing, but the larger question is whether these new self-contained water coolers can give the best air coolers a run for their money. We will find out if they can in our comparison to the top air coolers tested at AnandTech.

no real surprise here, loud and hot. such compact units can only work if you have large enough radiator and good enough water flow;

here's another example of how this type of HSF does not perform
