Your mobo does that for you

Trust me, if the pump fails your PC will simply shut down. I tried to boot a Fury X three times with no pump running and it just shut down. CPUs are far more bullet proof than GPUs too

Yeah, that's true, if your processor exceeds the thermal limit, your motherboard automatic shuts down your computer.

I know it's kind of like asking how long is a length of string and AIO's are relatively new in the scheme of things but any advice is appreciated. There's no grinding/rattling etc I'm just worried about the hose or connections eventually perishing.
It's really hard to pin point an exact expiration date for any electronic device, mostly due to variance in usage, but in a perfect world scenario it should last the warranty period. With that said, regardless if you are running an aggressive OC and work load or just use your rig once or twice a year to check emails, all our AIO's come with a 5yr warranty unless it's refurbished, then it is 1yr. Anything happens in that time, submit a ticket and we can get it replaced.

Thanks Nick yeah it would be out of warranty now (I bought it in late 2011) and it's working fine I just wondered if there were any thoughts on typical lifespan. It's really only the tubing or a seal perishing causing a leak that would potentially be fatal to other components. Thanks for the feedback.
