I've had my H105 for about 3 years now and was wondering about how much life it has left? I run my PC anywhere from 5 to 8 hours a day.

I had a original H50 running for over five years straight without an issue. I eventually replaced it when I was redoing my system cooling. I figured it was going to die at some point... eventually. I wouldn’t worry about the 105, just keep on using it if you are happy with the performance.

These things tend to last much longer than you'd expect.

I've never had one die on me, and I've used them for many years at a time.

The coolant evaporates through the tubing over time, so they do have a limited shelf life, but it is pretty long, and if you rent afraid of some DIY you can open them and refill them, even if they are not designed for this.

I have an h50 in my old pc that's been in it for at least 7 years. That system was pretty much run damn near 24/7 until last year.

I've got a H70 from 2011 and a H60 from 2012 that are both cooling great.
