I don't think what they are offering is morally fair, but legally it's probably more than they are required to offer me. I'm am concerned that the more I push it, the more likely they are to say "stuff you then" and not offer me anything other than a replacement H100.
Do your research on consumer protection laws OP, particularly with regards to compensation for consequential loss. From my reading of the law and state provided information on the laws, it looks like either Corsair or PCCaseGear owes you full compensation for any parts damaged or destroyed by the leak. You can read a little more on it on the Department of Commerce web site
. The law should side with you since this falls under the category of a major problem with goods
where no reasonable consumer would have purchased the good if they had known about the problem and the good is unsafe. As manufacturers and suppliers, they have to guarantee that the good is of acceptable quality, meaning that it is safe, durable and free from defects
. So don't agree to anything unless it's full compensation. Once you do, you have no further legal ramification since you have agreed to the resolution.
