I have recently discovered i have £60 in my bank account not doing a great deal and i have wondered if getting used water cooling is a good idea there are plenty of 2nd hand corsair AIO water cooling and i have wondered if it is safe to do so.

Safe enough, yes. Good idea, maybe, maybe not. What CPU are we talking about?

2nd hand corsair AIO water cooling

I would be wary on 2nd hand AIOs as for both warranty and reliability standpoints. There are a few things I will not buy used, HDDs, AIOs, PSUs. No idea what CPU/case/existing cooler you are using so if you need an upgrade or not I cannot say. Air coolers still offer the best bang for the buck performance wise over AIOs and are much more reliable too. Also a chance you may not even need to upgrade your cooler at all and that £60 would be better spent on new games instead.
