I can vouch for this one - I have it.
It is refillable, expandable, AND serviceable.

Pretty bloody awesome cooler, but it's hurt by:
-the round frame fans... on a radiator... plus, they're LED = not the best for performance, and I'm a performance-focused individual.
-the mounting hardware is a PITA. It is very easy to mount incorrectly and either end up with subpar thermals or cpu error because it was over-tightened. I'm comparing this to a Fractal Celsius S36 which I also have.

All depends on the actual liquid cooler. There's 3 kinds.
  1. Everyday average all-in-one. This is a sealed unit that has no user accessible parts, nor any ability to refill.
  2. Hybrid are the same as #1 but contain standard Watercooling G1/4 fittings and are expandable. (Fractal Design and some others). These can be drained and/or refilled as necessary.
  3. Seperates. Some companies (such as Swiftech or EK) make an AIO kit, it's basically a Custom Loop in a box, full G1/4 fittings, seperate pump/reservoir, seperate cpu block or combination pump/res/block etc. These require periodic maintenance, usually @ the year mark.
Most aios are #1, some are #2, few are #3, so it depends on exactly what you look at.

oh sir i am not interested in led lights i got it because it was recommened to me and i ordered it, it's still not dispatched yet so maybe i can ask.
i dont care about led simple darkness is ok lol i am more into cpu and gpu system power.

the setup am building will that be strong and powerfull for use with adobe after effects ? if you say adobe after effects use one core than i can use rendergarden plugin that creates seperate instances of the same render file working together exporting it.

Both the liquid coolers you linked are full of RGB.

OK, so Pro, Semi-Pro

That system should be OK.

The bonus of most rgb/argb fans over the older solid color leds is that they almost always require you hook them up. That Corsair aio will run just fine without the RGB connected, just plain fans and tuck the unused wiring out of the way.

I'd not run a CX-F with that setup. You are pushing a 5950x and a 2080ti with priceless wedding footage. Should be looking at the RMx/RMi or Seasonic Prime series. The CX-F is a half-step better than the bottom of the barrel VS/CV/CX-M.

1. Cooler is fine, build is fine, psu is lower quality, you'll be editing/rendering long duration under heavy loads, and a mediocre power supply is not great for that. With the kind of money you are spending for the build, it's like buying a tuxedo and wearing sandals. It'll work, but you'd be better/safer with a higher quality power supply.

2. You'll get very good performance from the m.2 NVMe, those storage are excellent for large file transfers like video renders.
