Go air or custom.
This is debatable.. Honestly I am using the Corsair h100 currently on my own rig set-up and the temps are exceptional. I barely get above 50C under load @ 1.35V 4.8GHZ on my 2700k usually. Hotter days it can be high 50's but I don't think I have ever seen it break 60C under game load.
This has me really worried though, even though the chance of leaks is small, I have 800 dollars in GPU's (2 EVGA FTW 670's) and other components of high value in my rig. I don't have the money right now to be replacing parts either. It would be devastating if this happened to me, so I really feel your pain OP
. I sincerely hope corsair takes actions to reimburse you in full or I will NEVER purchase a corsair h100 again or corsair products again in future builds and will not recommend their products to others either.
I was already contemplating doing a custom loop and this is about to push me over the edge.
The h100 is a great cooler for what it is though. I am definitely satisfied with the temps I get, although I am using 4 cougar vortex fans in push/pull setup.Edited by immakulate - 10/8/12 at 10:27pm
