Corsair H100 leaked onto my brand new graphics card and motherboard - Page 18  

post #171 of 592
Agreed with the ugly comment. Sure the D14, SA and the like perform well but maybe some people don't have room for a massive cheese grater in their case? Or maybe they'd like to actually be able to see the mobo they spent $300 on? Closed loop water coolers like the H100 usually perform very close to the best of air coolers and do so without taking up any where near the space.

Of course full custom loop is really the way to go! thumb.gif

I have the H100, just installed a month ago. I used the H50 for over 2 years with no problems.

Were did the H100 actually link from? Hose, connector, block?

Thanks.

Thanks.

Yes as Majin SSJ Eric said, it leaked from the block. Images on the first post

this thread gives me a doubt that im not goin for water cooling.....sad to say im goin to hyper evo 212 if this what happen.... i know if something will happen on my rig (same like this)i think corsair cannot make a quick reponse specially on my place (SAUDI ARABIA) because of their very tight policy here but i dont know if they can but on my mind thats the thing that keeps me thinking now.......


i love to have an H80 cooler on my rig but still im afraid it will ruin my entire parts of my rig....


is it ok im goin to drop on hyper 212 evo with push/pull config?

I think it would be wise to maintain a bit of perspective on the issue.

Thousands, upon thousands of people have watercooling and for the vast majority of them they will never see a problem like the OP had.

I have personally used watercooling on and off for the last 6 years whether it be a Swiftech H20 120 set (used for ~3 years) or the Corsair H60 I currently use and I have never had an issue. Proper installation and a long period of leak testing (24+ hours) reduces the chances of these types of failure to practically zero. Having said that, if you can't afford to replace your parts should the worst happen it is probably best to stay away from watercooling in the first place. Similarly low temperatures can be attained through high-end air cooling, and for those with little fault tolerance, that is probably the way to go.

no more closed loop cooler for me then, at least if i built a custom and if it fails, i have no one to blame but myself

Can't argue with anything you said there. Good advice.

I've lost track of how many times I've said that "leaks are rare" in this thread but it's quite a lot.

The issue here (at least for me) is simply that some people received full compensation when this happened in the past, but now it appears others (including me) will not. It appears (though I can't be certain) that I'm the first person to have a leaking H100 since their compensation policy apparently changed.

When I researched the H100 I read in forums that a) leaks are very rare and b) on the occasions that it had leaked, Corsair compensated those people for the cost of the damaged parts. That gave me enough confidence to go ahead with it.

I'm hoping that this thread will help other people in making an informed choice if they are thinking about water cooling, specifically using any of the Corsair closed loops. Otherwise people (like me) will continue to come across only those threads where everything turned out great and they received full compensation, and, like me, will think that they are fully covered in the event of a leak.

Of course, Corsair could have just come out and publicly stated that their policy on compensation had changed. Give everyone the facts and let them decide if the benefits outweigh the risks.

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.

That is alarming, if Corsair think the damages are only worth $150. You can barely get any decent cards for that price. But hey, were sorry for ruining your $400/500 cards. The apology makes everything so much better, with a pile of junk. smile.gif

Sure it's a small problem but once that problem happens, it creates worry. How can people have faith when I've read numerous H100 problems amongst many forums, from leaking to grinding noise to pump failure and circuitry failure. They even got another replacement that failed on them.
