If going with a gpu block as well I would recommend the 360 kit

The main thing is my LSI SAS controller for my boot / system drive, it was underneath the video card in a sense protected from any drips so I am praying that it did not get damaged. I did find a very slight bit of moisture on the heat sink plate atop the south bridge but the motherboard itself feels non oily or wet. sooo when air arrives in the mail and my gpu gets here probably today, we shall see..

well... this is the way I look at it.

If your mb was damaged by the leak you need to know it now. This way corsair can replace it too. The variable in this is corsair's replacement policy. If they need the card or mb, then cleaning it yourself is pointless. just use their return/warrantee program.

If they're just gonna take your word, there is no harm in cleaning it and seeing if you can't salvage it. the motherboard is something i'd power on the moment you have another gpu, just to be certain it still works as well. if it works, and they don't want your 680, then I'd take a shot at cleaning it. having 2 680s would be pretty cool imho.


as to the reliability of a custom loop... think of it more like autopilot. I'm sure autopilot can land an airplane, and probably land it pretty well, that said I wouldn't want to ride in a plane landed by a computer... nor would i expect any pilot like the idea. When you're sticking something containing a potentially damaging substance into your computer it's best if you have complete control over the situation. A custom loop gives you that. As you can test, retest, take it apart to service and generally will be able to exercise the care your system needs and deserves. I've never had a custom loop leak on my system. that said, that corsair guarantee sounds fantastic.

I was using the H100 as it was designed as a CPU cooler not a GPU cooler, it dripped down on the 680...

How old is this h100? and do you know where exactly it leaked? I've been messing with the layout of the h100 and pulling and twisting the radiator all over...should I be concerned o_o

Yeah, you dont want to pull twist or mess with any of the connections, mine leaked out of where the tubing went into the water block and around the sides of the water block where it connected to the heat sink itself.

As a couple other posters stated building a custom system all be it more $$ claims to be a lot more secure. However as one said you can run a computer without water but not without parts. It makes more sense to me to run on air than water until they get them perfected.....

Thanks fof your post

Get them perfected huh? Failures will always occur, thats the unfortunate truth of it. If you are waiting for a 100% guarantee that it will never leak, you might as well forget about water. Corsair backs their products pretty well considering though.

I think the OP just got a bad H100, I've twisted my h50 and h60 enough, they're still great!

I totally agree with that! All the time a prson spends planning,installing,customizing,overcloccking,testing...This is a very bad thing for someone like me to see ive been considering getting one of these closed loop water coolers but this is something that's always on the back of my head-WHAT IF IT LEAKS!? So they cover anything that was damaged by there product? Do they pay you what the items cost retail or is there a different way they value pc parts? It kinda reminds me of car insurance-it dosent cover aftermarket parts like sound system and stuff alike but there is SPECIAL insurance u need to get to cover that stuff! I hope your equipment is ok,if not I wish u all the best in getting your money back that you lost! Tell them u want more for all the time u put in u never know maybe they'll give it to you? Good luck thumb.gif

Why do I keep seeing a new thread every week about Corsair's water coolers leaking? Are they really that bad?
post #50 of 180
Also be aware of how many people do have the H100, considering the sample size, there are about 1/500 of getting a faulty Closed loop system is pretty slim.

Corsair is also very generous when it comes to replacing parts. If you look at the official corsair thread on here, you would see that everyone has been pleased with their service. I'm very happy with my H100 with over a year of usage. I was going to get a full custom loop but I felt like I wouldn't have enough time to mess around with it, the H100 is just install and go. No maintenance is required. Maybe you think I'm lazy, but because of so much work I have during the day, I just don't have time to keep up with it.

However, in the future I do plan on getting a custom loop, I was debating on either the H100 or RX360 in the past and settled on the H100 and decided I was going to go for a true custom loop instead of a kit later on tongue.gif which would probably be this summer.

That is because only the people who have trouble with it post about it, while others who doesn't don't post about it. Which is like a hundred out of one per week, that one person will look up and eventually find OCN and post about it.
