And what happens if Thermaltake refuses to compensate you for your damaged components in the event of leakage? Go Antec? Swiftech?

This.

If I decided to swim in a croc-infested body of water knowing full well the risk and lost an arm as a result. Should the city / state / country be responsible for the irreversible damage? Should I be compensated for life now that I am armless and likely jobless?

Why should manufactures be at the mercy of users with closed loop water systems kookoo.gif

Good luck with Thermaltake i would not buy a Biscuit from them.

Cooler Masters water cooling kit is afew weeks away.. which is gonna be by far the best out there.

Yes, but you didn't did you? Nor did the OP. Rather, he purchased a product and had every right to expect it to be free from defects and not to damage his property.

He didn't choose to take a risk. Instead, he purchased a product that he was entitled to expect to operate safely.

Honestly, if you want to compare someone buying a defective product that damages their property, to someone voluntarily swimming in crocodile infested water, I don't really know if rational debate with you is possible.

It's almost a matter of semantics at this point really... every purchase is a risk in some aspect. When you purchase anything aftermarket in this particular market, there is an inherently increased risk due to the repurcusions of any failure. Liquid tends to find cracks... his found one. This is one example, and even with a hundred similar examples with this specific product, it still represents a small percentage of the overall market for this product. Now, getting Corsair to release specific RMA/failure rates for this product would shed more light, but that isn't going to happen.

Also, is it really crocodile 'infested'... wouldn't it be more like crocodile 'occupied'? I'm not really sure crocs can be said to 'infest'... tongue.gif

When you buy an H100 Corsair guarantees the product itself to be free of defect and does not implicitly accept responsibility for other damages. They do offer compensation as a matter of customer service but they are in no way obligated to replace anything but their defective unit. You are responsible for the risks involved with buying a closed loop water system as nobody can expect 100% of units to be free of defect. That is a choice (and a chance) you make when purchasing such a cooler. Luckily Corsair came through in the end but make no mistake they are not legally bound to do anything they haven't expressly written in their limited liability warranty.

Caveat: IANAL

However, this is likely incorrect. It is not possible to enforce an unlawful contract. Although it is common practice for companies to state this kind of thing in warranty documents, that doesn't mean it's really the case. They can say they don't accept liability until they are blue in the face, but if the law says they are liable then they are liable.

Bear in mind I have said over and over in this thread that actually enforcing liability where a manufacturer doesn't accept it is very difficult and not worth doing in this kind of case. It's also of course the case that everyone would rather things were sorted amicably than otherwise.

But since we are talking in hypotheticals, ie. are they legally liable, yes - I think you'll find in most cases someone who produces a defective product that causes damage is absolutely liable, whether they say they are or not. Actually getting a court judgement to that effect in a particular case is another thing, and is much more likely to happen when a defective car kills someone than when a defective cooler damages a few hundred dollars worth of equipment.

Crocodile infested is fine. Infested can refer to insects and animals in large numbers.

Once again, you and some of the members here in this thread refuse to accept the catastrophic risk of leakage that comes with these closed systems. Likening this risk to croc-infested waters is perfectly irrational but then irrational pretty much sums up a great portion of this thread thumb.gif
