Liquid cooling attempts to circumvent heat sink size limits by moving the largest portion of the cooler away from the CPU socket to a dedicated spot on the case. Relocating the radiator to the case also allows it to accept cooler air from outside the case, particularly when it’s mounted to the front panel. Even a radiator mounted to the top panel to serve as an exhaust system usually benefits from the unit’s larger size. Furthermore, displacing cooler weight from the CPU socket to the case decreases the damage risk associated with rough handling of the complete system, making closed-loop liquid coolers a better choice for those who must transport or ship a machine.
