Hardware Labs SR1 560 radiator, should this concern me or do I need to RMA it?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I purchased two Hardware Labs radiators on October 31 2011 (SR1 360 & SR1 560) and noticed two small dents on two rows of tubes only on the SR1 560 radiator nowhere near the fan mounting holes, I only noticed it a few days ago when I flushed them both. Is this going to be a problem down the road and leak? The picture of the dent I took was the worst of the two, I apologize for the low quality image.

It appears to have happened before the painting process during the manufacturing of the radiator, I have contacted Hardware Labs and after they asked where I purchased it, I feel things have gone cold as far as continued communication with Hardware Labs. I love the high quality of Hardware Labs radiators and own several models (GTX & SR1 Series) that I continue to use and consider myself as brand loyal continuing to buy Hardware Labs radiators in the future, I just hope this experience doesn't change that!

Thanks, Systemlord.

I wouldn't worry about it at all.

Shouldn't be a problem at all...but if you really need peace of mind, a dab of jb-weld will make sure it doesn't stand a chance of leaking.

Meh... I wouldn't worry about it either. Should still work fine!

Shouldn't be a problem, only issue would be a leak springing from that weak spot but a pc loop wouldn't have enough pressure to do that. If anything the pressure from the water might even be enough to push that dent back out and everything would be normal again.
