I was keen on buying a Corsair H115i AIO from my local retailer this week, but they had told me that they are out of stock of the regular H115i, but they had just gotten a new shipment of the newly released H115i Pro, and I'm considering buying that over the old one, but I have a question first.

Should I wait a bit after it's released to buy it? I don't want to take that chance of being part of a group of people with malfunctioning brand new products. I am very paranoid when it comes to liquid cooling in general, with the possibility of a leakage coming with it. Should I be afraid of this? Should I buy the older model or the new one?

Any answers are appreciated, thanks!

You are asking about early adopters pain. To some extent it may happen. I would request you to wait for some time. Check customers review in all popular hardware sites and say after a month or two buy it. But it will be unwise to buy the old model. Why would you buy an older one when you have a promising new release which even looks better and as I have seen some early reviews It has new series astek pump which can switch off fan and will rely more on liquid temp to take the decision when to ramp up the fans.
