my 240r took a dump after 5 months this is exactly what caused it and it says mine is not eligible for recall what a crock, threw a noctua nh-u12 on it never going back to water cooling again
I wouldn't let this sour you on aio's or liquid cooling. Ive been using them for about 20 years and I've never had one fail on me. Be it aio or custom loop.
I happen to have just bought a MSI MAG Coreliquid 320 annnnd I only went with one not made by Asetek whose units which are pretty rocksolid because of availability and fit for Ryzen 7000.
There was recently an Asetek model with potential clogging because a rubber gasket in an wasn't made to spec which isn't really their fault and they sent me what I need to fix it and the fix takes a few min and involves 4 or 6 screws and replacing the gasket and the cold plate then filling it, all of which I got 3 days after filling out the form and will take about 5 min to do.
Thankfully it's never been used and is going into a new system so I don't really need to flush it all out I can just replace the plate, flush it once and it's probably perfect.. the MSI unit was going to be used because it was all I could find without RGB or a display in the pump that also listed am5 socket compatibility but I'm not going to bother risking it even if it's not effected. I'll stick with one by Asetek who handled the ordeal proactively and painlessly. If I wasn't comfortable doing it myself they would do it but it's so simple.
MSI is probably only doing the advanced RMA because of legal reasons involving Apaltek and where they have offices or warehouses that are equipped to handle this kind of thing. Usually hardware vendors who rebadge someone's products don't deal with this stuff directly and I don't think Apaltek has offices in many places at all. I've never even heard of them until recently. Asetek has been making the overwhelming majority of AIO's for many years now.
