That would be awful, don't even say such a thing! But I bet it would sell like hotcakes, sadly.

With a 240 or 360 rad to cool the cpu and vrm's it would be way better than air!

This is true, but I seem to have developed an unnatural hatred for AIOs since I got into custom loops. It's like I was raped with an AIO but somehow mentally blocked out the experience, so I don't actually remember the rape, but I fly into a weird rage just seeing the letters "AIO".

After seeing all the mITX AM4 offerings that are currently for sale at Newegg, I agree with Tom's comments on the video. The VRM heat-sinks are way too small. The ASRock x370 board is better. I would love a mono-block for any mITX AM4 board. They all seem to have similar design of placing the power section on the left of the CPU socket. I wonder if there could be a little block made similar to a 2 slot memory block in width and then just different mounting mechanisms for the different motherboard manufacturers.

Function over form. If a board is choking I couldn't care how the cooling was done as long as it didn't throttle or turn into a storage heater.

I was waiting for the Predator EK 140 just for reasons like a itx build as that has a pump and res in one, also being able to expand.

The thing is that they were never launched..... even so I would prefer to have a EK Predator at 120mm (single) so you could have more compatibility.
