there are plenty of threads about h100's and h##'s leaking and having defective parts if you search forum. there is also a lot of threads with people who had no problem with them.

guess you have to just roll the dice!

To it's conductiveness I can't answer. There's been threads about it hurting some and not hurting others... But Corsairs customer support is pretty top notch in the event that something does happen.


But to worrying about it leaking, I say don't. I have an H80 that's been running 24/7 for around a year and a half now and no leaks. As well as a few H60's. And a newer H80i that I've had since release.They're pretty well sealed and there's not much to worry about.

I'd be more worried about the pump deciding to quit than a leak so long as you handle it properly and don't purposely compromise the tubes.

i see i installed it carefully and not really willing to fiddle with it again

how long could it survive given that it's running 7/24 ?

There should be an hours of life rating for the pump. i wouldn;t be surprised if it's very very high. There are water pumps underneath London that have been going non stop for like a hundred years. Most water pumps arrange to use the water as lubricant, so as long as they're filled they're fine, but if they run dry they can die in under a minute.
