    Question Pump/fan vs leak fail for AIO

    Is it almost gurantted that the aio's fan or pump will fail first before there being a leakage failure? Will an AIOs pump/fan fail around the same time as a normal cpu fan because they have similar warranties? Basically, will an aio be just as safe as a fan if I use them till they stop working?
