My thoughts exactly, how does one manage to crack a CPU block? Let alone two?

don't think i cracked both, think it was cracked before installation. I checked both aio and the leak didn't happen till the pump started running. I also took extra care to secure the block finger tight. I can't say for others cause i've only had experience with the h220 x2. I ignored their forums full of complaints and thought that they are a very reputable brand.

Turns out their forums are true. Think what you want, i'm just giving people a heads up.

We're not "thinking what we want". This is not an opinion of ours, we're basing this on the half million users on Overclock.net.

@ciarlatano is a veteran reviewer and I'm a reviewer myself. We've both watercooled numerous PCs and know tons of people who do and never we've heard someone having issues like this with a swiftech block.

ciarlatano, correct me if I said anything wrong smile.gif

edit : oh, and I just checked the forums, I don't even see another thread created there for a cracked block.

edit 2 : This is also off the topics of this thread, if you want to discuss it further, please create a thread in the appropriate section or email Swiftech about this issue, we're unable to help you out on this issue regardless of cause.

Did you not test these externally with a jumped PSU? Nothing water goes in a powered case until fully tested....

This is why the leak test step exists.

Then you can also see if it is manufacturer defect or user error....

While I haven't had any dealing with Swiftech in a couple of years I find it hard to believe they would tell you they can do nothing if there was even the slightest possibility the leaks and subsequent damage were their fault. I don't know what country you live in, but most countries have consumer protection laws that basically say if you install something properly and it damages things they are responsible for the damages. Many even have laws saying a product must function properly for as long as others like it do. Like a TV or a dish washer should last 4-5 years of normal use or they are responsible for it's failure.

Please move this to the Swiftech thread in Water Cooling forum or start a thread there. While we have quite a few Swiftech owners here, this is Phanteks case thread so best discuss this were it belongs .. in Water Cooling forum:
http://www.overclock.net/f/61/water-cooling

or Switech thread:

they offered to replace the cooler both times but oh well. My local distributor for swiftech aio's are excellent though, they refunded me for the aio and offered to replace my gpus out of their own pockets. Highly appreciate their efforts. Swiftech offered to replace the aio after numerous emails, after deleting my comments on their facebook page.

Have moved on to other aio's, am considering ek predators, just not sure about the fit
