They can claim they can't determine what EXACTLY was the extent of the damage and who's at fault as the crime scene/accident scene was "tampered" or changed.

I'm just playing devil's advocate here ofcourse.
It's the police accident reporting center, the tow truck driver convinced me to let him just tow it there. When we got there a cop came out and filled out the paper work I made a report about how I was cut off gave the plate number of the car that cut me off (he stopped to look at the damage from the other side of the highway before driving off). Then insurance company awarded me the value of my car because the guy didn't defend himself.
What was even funnier is Metro cops had stopped right after the accident to check if everyone was ok while me and my Jamaican friend were stuffing random stuff from my car into a back pack lol, it didn't look good but we weren't hiding anything... at that time. Then they drove off because highways in Ontario are the jurisdiction of OPP.
I think there were a few key things though 1) I was the only car involved hit a concrete wall at about 110km/hr and 2) there were no damages to anything else besides a big long skid mark on the concrete wall.

Edit: still waiting on an update OP... My H70 hangs over my EW 650 PSU....

Corsair uses distilled water and propylene glycol to avoid any galvanic corrosion. Bet the glycol, when dried up, is that milky stuff.

I'd say they have to replace your gear. This is the secod case i hear of an H-cooler leak, and i'm sure replaicing a $1000 rig is way cheaper than losing on H-series cooler sales.

Well, four units (five if the case i know is not one you do) out of thousands sold... not perfect, but that's a hella nice record.

And most probably 4 out of 5 leaked because of bad handling at mounting, or unboxing, etc.

I'll tell you my recent RMA story to help you pass the time; I had purchased a refurbished Logitech K800 keyboard from one of their third party suppliers Canada Computers, it arrived dead I couldn't use it at all just get a flashing red light where the charge indicator was so I didn't panic. I called their CS and the had advised me to change the batteries before doing anything else (this was a mistake there was no record made of the call). After changing the batteries to some Duracell NiMH batteries ($8 a pair) as directed the keyboard worked and I was content, 1 month later the batteries wouldn't recharge at all, I was getting the same flashing red light. So I decided maybe I left the keyboard on and it was my fault so I went out and bought more batteries, Not even 2 weeks later I go home and turn the keyboard on ( I was sure to make a point of turning it off when not in use) and I got the same error. I called Logitech and started the warranty process which came to abrupt halt when I told them it was refurbished, apparently they don't warranty their refurbished items according to their CS supervisor that's why they sell them cheaper... I calmly told them that someone was going to replace this board weather it was the retailer or themselves because it was their CS that told me to change the batteries instead of sending it back to the retailer. Logitech told me to contact the retailer and respond to an email they were to send me with their response. Well the retailers response was pretty straight forward "Sorry this item is past it's 15 day return date". So I sent that response replied to the Logitech CS email and waited 2 days with no response (don't ignore your customers).

~intermission cue Monty python music

I called Logitech back and explained the situation they pulled up my case and went into the whole speech about how they don't warranty refurbish, I politely asked them to show me where I could see this policy in writing for myself which they could not do. I got a little upset because this was the final attempt and I knew it so I said in a firm voice " you had better get your supervisor on because it was your technical service reps that told me to change the batteries int he first place when I should have just sent it back to the retailer" she asked me to hold on a couple minutes while she got one on... 3 minutes later she came back on and stated they were prepared to replace my board.
They just wanted to get rid of me because they didn't even ask for the faulty board back just a shipping address.

If you feel like you didn't do anything to cause the situation then you are entitled for someone else to be held responsible, these companies are wise to the fact that sites like OCN show up on google search and facebook and twitter can be just as good for resolving issues out in the open as it is for marketing and sales. Don't forget about these new valuable tools that we have at our disposal now but use them fair.

Cheers and GL with your issue, it would be wise for them to replace everything damaged if it was infact not your fault.
I've always had great RMA experiences with Logitech. I've exchanged a dozen harmony remotes over the years. Two were even out of warranty.

Yeah honestly I thought for sure it was going to be trouble free. Then bam! "we don't warranty refurbished items".
I immediately went to their web page to re-read their warranty, they also said "we only warranty items from our own sales and 3rd party retailers". I said "Canada Computers is most definitely on your list as a legit 3rd party retailer I'm sure" then they went into ask me why I didn't try to replace it with them which I did do but their return policy was clear "15 days" which my issue is hardly detectable in 15 days, never mind the not so helpful advice to change the dead batteries that it came with.
I knew I would get it replaced I tend to be quite persuasive when I know it had nothing to do with me damaging it, I just didn't know they would be so resistant. I expected more from them. I know it doesn't matter but I have bought 3 trackman opticals, a M570, G15 and numerous gamepads in the past, I thought for sure they would have my back lol.

this is prime example why you dont buy these closed loops, you build your own and use non conductive liquid and you are good to go

Contacted Corsair! Hopefully they respond quickly

Hello. I called Technical support and I was pointed here to request an RMA.

My Corsair H50 has leaked around the base of the pump/block and damaged several components. I noticed the water damage when I removed the H50 from the socket and noticed that there was coolant residue on my motherboard, videocard, and soundcard. I'm not sure how it happened but lately every once in a while the H50 makes guttural/clicking noises so that may pertain to the issue.

I really hope you guys can help me out here. I'm the typical poor college student and it'll take a year to replace these parts, seeing as I'm taking Networking Security it's a very important part of my course. I have multiple Corsair components in my system and I definitely stand by the brand.

:: Parts Damaged from water::

MSI 790FX-GD70 - first PCI-E slot is not functional
Diamond HD5850 - cannot boot into windows while using cart, Ie, black screen.
Asus Essence Xonar ST - water damage on the amp.
