the thing is my h100i is more than enough for my 5ghz overclock on my i5 3570k and I'm not getting limited by temps at all. the only reason I've chosen an H100i is because of corsair's superb customer service. if they fail to replace the OP's damaged parts then I have zero reason to keep my H100i. I'll sell it and save up for a custom loop. I'm better off trusting my own made loop than something that will fail randomly and they won't even replace my damaged parts. I wish the best of luck to the op I'll also base my future purchases with this thread

To be honest, whenever you need to use customer service it sucks.
Corsair seems to be famous for, noisy pumps, grinding pumps/fans, random leakage on their h100/h100i's
If you can, ditch the corsair thats going to kill your components and get a cheap kit for $130, or just go custom and spend a few extra bucks thumb.gif

You have too good of hardware to skimp out on a decent cooler mate

Yeah first I want to say thank you for making a post to this thread, I had no clue it would get this much response.

Anyhows I know come to find out it got the Main board as well, It will post with out the SAS controller in (a brandy new one I might add) when I install the host controller no post no video, when I remove it I can get a bios screen and into setup but that is about all. After closer inspecting things, somehow the liquid got past my video card and damaged the south bridge, which is why I am speculating that it got the board. There is really no other components that were in the way or involved in the leak. as my storage side of the case is isolated from the board.

Unless someone here has any suggestions to getting this to post with the LSI card in. btw before the leak it was running flawlessly. And you are correct I will never use any pre assembled liquid cooling systems again. Corsair now has my Video card and LSI card but I am afraid I have lost out on Main Board replacement. But I do plan on replacing it myself and writing this whole thing off on a stupid mistake on my part by purchasing an H series prefab'd cooler.

I will post here when I hear from Corsair and what they are going to pay for.

Regards
Dev

do you try something else in the slot you had your sas controller card in ? did you try the sas controller in another pc to make sure it was toast?

other things work in the slot and the card works in other pc's
the only thing I can think of is that there is a bios setting because the when the leak occured bios was reset to default. do i need to do something in the storage section of bios to make the card be seen correctly?

Thank you once again

Not likely to be a BIOS setting... if it were then you'd still be able to POST and get into BIOS in order to change the setting. That's a much lower-level error if you're not getting a POST at all with the host controller installed. It seems almost like the MB thinks it's a GPU and it trying to drive the display from it. The only thing I can think to fix that (I'm assuming that you're running on-board video at the moment while waiting for another 680).. however if you have another discreet GPU installed.. then I have no idea.

You might try setting the display priority in your BIOS (with the host controller removed of course) to IGP - since it's probably still set to PCI/PEG (or PEG only if they are separate settings). That way at least it will use your IGP as the primary display driver - and should show POST messages if they are available with the host controller installed.

For one you should have used mineral oil, its heat dispersion ability exceeds plain waiter, (if anything use distilled (pure) water both are Dielectric meaning they do NOT conduct electricity, therefore it wouldn't have shorted out.

hell , you can SUBMERGE your stuff in mineral oil, i am planing on doing it to mine.

One think i dont like is that even if you get the stuff back staying without PC for weeks its a killed. In Custom loops if done right they never leak. Also lets say you kill something you know you killed it and you took the risk. People that buy stuff like H100 are the afraid type.

And if you don't mind having to carry your whole rig/aquarium to another room, or lay down heavy vinyl sheeting on the floor and have a ton of disposable towels every time you want to upgrade a component... it's a great way to go. Totally not worth the mess/hassle IMO. I agree on the distilled, however over time it becomes conductive as it grabs some of the metal particles from the rads, fittings, etc. Not to mention that with an AIO you'd have to open it, drain it, refill it... and now you don't have even whatever limited warranty you get from Corsair at the moment.

It's just like everything else in the world... it's a tradeoff. If there was a car that made 500HP, could comfortably seat 8 people, got 120MPG, and cost $10K new - we'd all just drive one of those and all other cars would be obsolete. If you want the silence and performance of watercooling... you take the risk of leaks and damage. IMO that's where the H100 has issues - despite having one myself in my work PC at the office (if it leaks... I'll just replace the whole thing with all new hardware on the company's dime biggrin.gif) but at home there's no way I'd trust my gear to an AIO solution - even if one existed that could adequately cool the rig.

In reality, if I weren't using spare hardware in my workstation at the office, I would have never gotten an H100 (just mostly wanted to see how it would do). A really good air cooler will give you 85-95% of the cooling performance with absolutely no chance of leaking whatsosever - and will cost a little less as well, and be about as quiet.

I keep hearing about leaking h100s......I own 4, and all work perfectly fine headscratch.gif
