Hello,

How much more expensive in terms of power consumption is liquid cooling?  Been searching for a definitive answer but can't find out.  Hopefully its only negligible?  

 

Also, is there a life span of liquid cooling where i'll have to get it serviced/replaced?  Not had much experience of it.

Thanks

More expensive than what? Except for the simple heat sink without an attached fan where will be power consumed by the cooling system.

As for service or replacement - that will depend on the system. You are going to have to research to find your answers - Google is a great place to start.

I really doubt that the tiny pump in a L.Cooling system is going to make any difference in your electric bill. All it has is a small, free-spinning impeller that circulates a liquid, no real difference between that and a fan on a CPU heatsink in an air unit.  I have been running a LC unit for several years and haven't noticed any difference in my electric bill. For the difference in cooling efficiency and lower fan noise they are a great investment. Mine has not given me one bit of trouble. Liq.Cooling units don't get repaired, just replaced.
