I think I am still going to go with an Arctic AIO if I do an AIO, 6 year warranty and they already proved when they make a mistake they fix it fast and hassle free.

You crack me up, man :)
Thanks for the review - at least they didn't ruin the fan performance like BeQuiet! did on their Pure Loop 2FX!
It's a shame you don't have a regular non-ARGB Pure Loop 2 280mm in your charts. That's a better, quieter AIO for $55 less than this 115i RGB Elite.

I would've thought this would replace the RGB PRO lineup; non-RGB fans at a lower price. But the MSRP is only $10 lower than the capellix line. If you're gonna pay such a large corsair tax it'd be for the RGB I'd think.
Having only a single USB-C connector to the CPU block is a nice improvement, even if you still need all the other connectors at the other end.
