Never said it was hard to read... But wouldn't ever brag my friends system leaking and surviving it... then CONTINUE using it while it has a leak.... Let me re-phrase my car analogy...

That's like driving my car with the engine heavily knocking, and pushing my luck to see how far it goes...

The OP CLEARLY already stated that he is trying to avoid leaks... And you bring it up as systems survive water leaking directly onto printed circuit boards... while still being in use...

Distilled water is pretty good at not being conductive.

I am no chemist, but it is still conductive, just much less than regular water... That's still what the OP is trying to avoid on his machine that he invested a significant amount of money on that he cannot re-buy...

you should get Noctua D14 cooler. at first i am skeptical about air cooling as my Cooler Master V10 cant even overclock 1% at all failling prime 95 test continously. But then, i decide to give Noctua D14 cooler a try and i am shock to see the results! see my signature for more details.

D14 is very very impressive. Still gives the H100 a run at lower voltages.

That and maybe some air filters (if you don't already have some) would prevent you from always blowing out the big heatsink but then again, even radiators need to be cleaned...

OP, if it makes you feel better to go to a warrantied closed loop cooler, check out this story I have been following. This was from an H50 that leaked onto his system...
http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...videocard.html

"UPDATE 8/23/2011 #2

9. Possibly the best support of any Company I've ever dealt with. I got home from class and my phone started to ring. Not sure who it was I answered anyways - It was a tech from Corsair. Really the first time ever that a company has chased me down rather than me trying to get through to any form of human.

Here' s the story:I initially was not going to send in my sound-card because it still works from time to time (About 90% of the time) but it has a lot of coolant on it. Carlos (The tech) said that it'd be better to send it in anyway so that myself and Corsair do not run into any problems in the future. I agreed that'd be a good idea.

He said since my cooler (H50) is discontinued they are actually going to upgrade me to a better cooler, not the H60 but an H80... quite the gesture. He also said that they will most likely upgrade my GPU also, to a 6000 series card since the 5850 is discontinued OR they will write me a cheque, Carlos said that Customer Service would usually deal with that and he was just assuming that's what they'd do.

ALSO! Like I mentioned before I'm not sending in my Motherboard for a replacement, and I stated that the PCI-E slot is broken (1 out of 4 of them) so they will compensate me in terms of hardware. Originally Kevin (previous rep) said that they would give me a Corsair Headset, since I already have about 7 laying around the house I asked if an SSD would be an appropriate substitute and they said it's a pretty good chance I can get a 60GB SSD (I asked for 60GB).

Wow. Guys. Nothing better can be said about Corsair support, Really. Carlos was very professional on the phone BUT he was down to earth, which is very nice. Anytime I've ever called support for any company It always seemed like they were rushed to get me off the phone, but not this Techy! We talked for a good 15 minutes on the whole situation and he was empathetic without sounding like a robot."

You should get the H80 or H60 depending on your budget.

Bought an h60 from bestbuy. Bringing it back soon, ordered an h80 off newegg today. See how much better it is.
I saw the thread about his leak. Made me feel much better about going with corsair!
