When at if (huge if) Swiftech does that, I'll consider it. Until then, Corsair wins, and if you're going to buy a custom loop, do it right the first time.
I understand the issue you raise. But since this has the capability of expansion to custom loop
standards you could not have a guarantee for the rig damage once it is expanded. The likelihood is at some point someone will opt for a second radiator or a gpu block.
If the unit is not expanded it has less of a chance of leak damage then a Corsair unit has
, as its fittings and tubing is far superior . I am sure a Ray storm does not guarantee against rig damage from leaks either.
Then buy a real loop. Otherwise, you can with corsair as well if you are fine with breaking warranty.
Then buy a real loop.
Making things up, zero proof. Don't defend something based on assumption.
They don't, because it's a Custom loop you put together yourself. It just happens to be in a kit. They only cover the parts in the kit.
You can defend the Swiftech all you like, but it does not beat corsair in the AIO field simply because of warranty and customer service. It wins in performance, great, but if you want performance, you should just buy a real kit the first time instead of a kiddie toy version unless you plan to hand it off to another rig you own later. The pump/block is not going to survive the transition to a full loop, and the Rad isn't worth that much.

I notice you still don't have an 8300 chip and are still provoking fights. Get out and go back to the Intel subforum.Edited by KyadCK - 3/21/13 at 6:52pm
