If I'm not mistaken Corsair is only liable for up to a certain amount in damages. I believe someone's graphics card got fried and they gave him $150 for compensation? I don't know for certain.

wow this is a bit pricey. What kind of warranty do these come with. Not sure if this will be my choice since Corsair has a great parts replacement plan

They talked about warranty a few posts back.

Our warranty falls in line similarly with Corsair. Essentially ours stated we have the right to dispense funds as we see fit in warranty claims.

Check out Corsair's warranty "CORSAIR SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER"

I'm also wondering if this 280x140mm version would fit well in a arc midi without mods, since looking at mine , only the 120mm rad mounts are offset towards the door to help a push/pull setup fit easily.

A push setup 180x180mm AIO would be interesting to see too but at the end of the day a push/pull 140x140mm is still a nice option instead of all the 120x120mm ones, and the improved rubber tubing should make installs easier.

I just don't like the idea of not having all the weight of a HSF bolted to the motherboard versus a RAD bolted to the case, and I've been keen on finding a 140mm or 280mm option to take advantage of better fans over 120's.

Actually we fully compensated that guy for all his damages.

Nice launch, by the way, Rob. I'd wish you good luck and all, but, uh...you know. smile.gif

I do like the product name, though I think the Press Release didn't have enough fun with the "Kraken" name.

Which of your own cases does the 280 fit in? Switch 810 and Phantom 820? What hole spacing are you guys using on the radiator?

Corsair's warranty doesn't cover it either.

A incident where they did, but there's really no guarantees. Personally, I stay away from these AIO coolers, just not worth it over a good air cooler or a "true" WC setup.

but regardless of what is written with corsair's warranty, they are compensating their customers for the collateral damages, how about nzxt?

yes, that is after they raised hell, the original corsair's decision is to only give him 150 for the compensation right? i wonder what if another ocn member have their corsair cooler leaks? do they have to raise hell too? or they won't gonna be fully compensated anymore even if they raise hell?

i'm sorry for the words i used, my english vocabulary is limited, i don't know an alternate words for those, i don't mean to be rude.

It wasn't because they raised hell, there was an internal policy change that went in the wrong direction, and after internal review it's been changed back to the original policy. It was a matter of a policy that just didn't make sense, and based on my feedback and feedback from the tech support and customer service group, it was quickly removed.

The current policy evaluates each issue independently.
