It’s all closed up just has tempered glass.

As far as water cooling it’s just as simple except for the extra step of setting fan speed in the included software. You put the waterblock on the cpu just as you would an air cooler and then mount the radiator to the case. Pump is built in and it cones pre filled. If you are doing a top end build I’d recommend it but you can do an air cooler.
