Edit: I hope that Corsair can help you out, a mid range card (6850 or6870) and a new cooler would be nice of them, a MB if it is fried.

1. I don't recall the OP ever saying that his computer was working at all. Instead, he listed very specifically what components were damaged and made it clear that he was not trying to take advantage of Corsair's RMA process by asking them to replace everything.

2. Just because he's a poor student doesn't mean he can't have a few of the finer things in life. I'm broke as hell, but my rig would tell most people differently. Roughly speaking, I'm surviving off of 200 bucks or less a month.

3. Even if he posted more pictures, the picture he did post is evident that some type of coolant leaked.

4. I don't think it's entirely his fault. The coolant in most closed looped systems is listed as non-conductive. However, this is probably not always the case, and the liquids being used likely retain some characteristics of a conductive fluid. Assuming the liquid was dry, it probably wouldn't seem initially unreasonable to test what components had survived said disaster. Some of the components were likely immediately damaged as soon as the leak sprung. At least he's willing to attempt to verify what is and isn't working instead of demanding that Corsair merely write him a check for the entirety of his rig.

5. I would be amazed if Corsair didn't replace it as they've been known not only to have an amazing RMA process but have also been known to replace components due to similar leakage issues that the OP is indicating.

Where is the pic of the unit itself?
As for using it while knowing it was faulty,that voided any chance of replacement of blown parts.

Alright. FBI Interrogation is it? ;]

1. It WAS not working at all. I've replaced the parts with lesser ones. Replaced 5850 with GTX550 Ti, and the H50 with a Hyper212 - These are my friends parts that will be used in his next build next week, he said I could use them. My motherboards PCI-E slot is non-functional, the Videocard is in the second slot.

2. You assume I bought my PC through college. I bought my system in august of 2010. I sold my old system for $1300 and built this one for school. I'm taking AUDIO ENGINEERING as a secondary course, which warrants the sound card. Networking Security / Administration is my main course.

3. I'm waiting for my girlfriend to get home. She's gone away for a week and she has a much better camera then my iPhone 3GS, it has terrible low-light quality and blacks show up terribly.

4. The damage was already done before I ever "continued to use my PC". You assume the water didn't damage my card directly the moment it touched it? My screen turned grey and orange and my PC crashed, which is a GPU issue - not CPU. Therefor the damage was instant and running my PC afterwards makes no difference. Also, I didn't realize there was a leak until I actually went to take it off. I checked the inside of my case but the water was no apparent even when shining a flashlight.

5. But, that's your job Agent DarkStarCow. I am happy you asked these questions so maybe it clears up a few things.

OP-you said yourself that the unit was at 120 degrees then idling at 60+,but you continued to use the machine,knowing there was a problem.
The blow out didnt happen till later,after you had finished using it for 2 HOURS!
RMA will probably be denied,the damage was caused by you continuing to use a faulty product. Your rig was working until the next day when you switched it on AGAIN,knowing there was a problem.

I hope Corsair help you but they would be within their grounds to refuse RMA.
