Never looked at water cooling before, does it ever need changing out or anything? what are the chance of it breaking and probs more importantly how difficult is it to install, for that matter how do you install it?A water cooling PC sort of works in the same manner as the cooling system of a car, but instead of maintaining a temperature within a very narrow margin, we're mainly concerned with namely the CPU and GPU to not get so hot that they throttle themselves. Throttling means the part is slowing itself down so it doesn't kill itself due to the heat.
A heatsink works by a basic principle in thermodynamics, that heat moves from warmer objects to cooler objects. As the cooler object gets warmer, the warmer object gets cooler.
The heat is taken from the CPU, in the case of a heatsink, and then blown away by the heatsink's fan and the case's case fans.
In a water cooling setup, fluid is running from radiators, to cooling blocks that sit on the CPU or GPU. It works much the same way, except water is more efficient at this process of heat transfer. The water is then taken from the blocks to the radiators, where the heat is dissipated.
I use a water cooling loop All In One as my CPU cooler. It has a radiator, tubing, block and pump built in all one unit.
But other people, namely enthusiasts, build their own custom loops using certain fluids, different size radiators, specific reservoirs, pumps, and custom water blocks.

Specifically, this water cooled PC uses hardline tubing.
Apologies about the questions but, never actually met anyone who knows about it and kinda curious ^^
