Here's hoping you get your full refund in a timely fashion
Thank you for your comment's!
I will as well be updating this thread as to the outcome of my Damage Claim with Corsair. I have no negative feelings towards the company in any way shape or form, they are a very reputable company in my eyes. I have bought countless amounts of memory from them for many of my custom systems I build. (BTW this is my business as well) a Custom System Builder, and take pride in my work. This minor setback is just like it was back in 1975 and the movie JAWS, when sharks were stereotyped and people avoided the water because of one incident. I have had a big change in heart regarding Water Cooling and still think it is by far the best way to cool a PC, and I blame myself for going with a pre-built CLC vs. Custom assembled system. Many users here have came down on me mostly in a helpful manner in regards to my attitude for totally shunning these systems. After a lot of thought I do want to get back on that horse and ride again, in other words build my own cooling system. With that said. I have been gathering information including a basic parts list to do such a system. However now I am looking for some guidance in doing so.
The 7 components I have deemed necessary are as follows:
1. Water Block
6. Radiator + Fans
I am looking for some recommendations on what to look for as far as mainly water blocks, tubing and connectors.
The Case I am using is a Lian-Li 343B Cube case with room to spare, (this case reminds me of a 10 unit condo Complex) I am only looking to cool the CPU with this not the GPU.
I currently have an ASUS P9X79 DELUXE LGA 2011 Intel X79 Motherboard with the Intel Intel Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E 3.6GHz, CPU.
The Case has an opening at the top for a 2 fan radiator (Where my H100) was mounted, and 9 available external 5.25" drive bays free on the motherboard side of the case, where the Reservoir would mount.. My big questions are what are preferably the best to use as far as connectors, Barbed or Compression fittings, and tubing size 3/8" ID or 1/2" ID, Also what should I look for in Water Blocks? Lastly is Frozen CPU a good company to purchase parts from or is there another?
Thank you and anyone else here for your response back in advance!!
