For some reason, I thought he meant he used it for his 680.

At least its supposed to work like that.

Good luck OP!
Just going to throw this out here as the above is wrong. You are not covered if your CLC leaks and kills your parts. Corsair has traditionally been amazing with coverage of this kind of issue, but they do not need to replace the dead parts.

double double post post.

My own experience with building a custom loop (CPU only) was that the process of selecting and ordering parts was tedious, mind boggling and frustrating. However I got lots of good advice on the Water Cooling thread and in the event the installation itself was a piece of cake, not even a 2 hour job. All you have to remember is to take extreme care when making the joints and to test them a few times before powering up.

I dont trust them (water that is) one bit!!!

Glad you got a good turn around with Corsair.

Well if you look at pure statistics (how many of these CLS corsair sold - the amount of them leaking) u'll see that these coolers are quite reliable. On top of that the customer service is really good wich didn't push me away from CLS. On the contrary i have now bought 2 H100i's for my other systems.

Greets once again mate's,
I did a final damage report on the leaking H100, the only 2 cards it got were

1. the GeFroce 680 Video Controller
2. LSI 9207 SAS / SATA Controller,

I replaced the video card and set up an Alaska Air Cooling system and powered up the system, at first it would not post or video, So I pulled the only other card that was in the system at the time, the LSI controller. The system posted fine with no other damage.

I just want to say thank you all for your input and confidence building discussion about this issue.
You all here have been more than gracious and helpful

Regards
Dev

Same scenario with needing to send in the defective parts, I can only assume to confirm they actually were damaged and allow them to QC the pump/hoses further. I re-installed the replacement for mine and all has been good with it since. Just be sure to they cover MSRP for the card, mine was an unlocked 6950 and they gave me full replacement cost, not some BS adjusted value or anything that I have seen before in other warranty scenarios.

This really does bolster my already high opinion of Corsair as a company. The could easily put disclaimers everywhere and say "tough luck" or try as you say to pay something other than the cost of actual replacement, claim depreciation, or one of a million ways to try to get around your claim (you dropped it, you broke it, you this you that). I feel for anyone that loses components to water, and you may not get as good of results in the 'silicon lottery' (a.k.a. your replacement CPU/GPU may not overclock as nicely, etc.), but you do get brand new, warranted stuff, it sounds like.

Ironically enough I used to run a H50 and was happy with it. I decided to build a custom loop and upon removing the H50 I found it had been leaking, I had not even noticed. So deciding to build a custom loop may have saved my hardware... thumb.gif

Actually my claim was just submitted yesterday 3/29. They said they have only had maybe 1% of the damage claims denied due to user F-Ups, which mine was not and they will find that to be true. But yeah you guys here were correct they do have an awesome damage claim department where as they could have just said I was SOL and blown me off. Which they DID Not! I think the outcome of this will be good. and may just try a Custom Loop system as a couple of the members here said to do. I consider my self a damn good engineer and computer tech and take the time to read it 3 times or measure it 6 times then do the install or cut. instead of just winging it. I think I am capable of building and installing a custom loop water cooler. but for now I am sticking to air until I get this system back to normal.

Also one question I did have to you or anyone else that reads this is this: Since I am going to have to replace my Host Raid SAS controller, am I going to have to do a reformat of my System drive, or should it just pick it up after a bit of configuration on the new card.. It is an LSI 9207 4e / 4i SAS / SATA Host Controller.

Thank you all again

Dev.

Lucky for you you did decide to do your own when you did, the computer Gods were with ya that day kudos... Also how hard was it to build your own..
