Hyper 212/CLC

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I recently purchased a refurbished H80i on sale for $49.04USD after tax on Newegg because it was a really good deal (69.99-25 promo=44.99). I was thinking about selling it off and just buying a Hyper 212 instead or just keeping this H80i.

What should I do?

I mean unless you sell it for what you gave for it, I wouldn't think it'd be worth the change to a 212.

What Skye said.

Personally I would sell it ASAP to get as much as I could out of it. I do not trust CLC for long term use. Did you ever think about where all these "refurb" CLCs are coming from? Either they failed and were returned or Corsair has decided their "5 year warranty" is longer than they will last so are selling them off as "refurb" with much less warranty.

Corsair's warranty reads:
Quote:
Exclusions
This warranty does not cover problems or damage resulting from, but not limited to, any of the following:
  • Wear and tear associated with normal use
  • Any modification, abuse, accident, disassembly, misapplication, or unauthorized repair
  • Removal of any manufacturer label(s) or sticker(s)
  • Any improper operation, including any use not in accordance with any supplied product instructions
  • Connection to any improper voltage supply
  • Use of consumables, such as replacement batteries, not supplied by Corsair, except where such restriction is prohibited by applicable local law
  • Any other cause which does not relate to a product defect in materials or workmanship
Also excluded from this warranty are counterfeit products; that is, products that Corsair, at its sole discretion, determines were not manufactured by Corsair or any of its authorized manufacturing partners.


Limitation of Liability
CORSAIR SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF PROFITS, REVENUE, OR DATA (WHETHER DIRECT OR INDIRECT) OR COMMERCIAL LOSS FOR BREACH OF ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY ON YOUR PRODUCT EVEN IF CORSAIR HAS BEEN ADVISED PREVIOUSLY OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. Some local laws do not allow the exclusion or limitation of special, indirect, incidental or consequential damages, so this limitation or exclusion may not apply in your jurisdiction.

Exclusion of Implied Warranties
EXCEPT AS PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE ON THIS HARDWARE PRODUCT IS EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED Some local laws do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty may last, so this limitation may not apply in your jurisdiction.
http://www.corsair.com/en-gb/support/warranty

This is directly quoted from their warranty. The caps are just as they used them. What it says is they do not warranty these things unless required by laws in your country.

Also the first exclusion; Wear and tear associated with normal use. What is their definition of that? How long does that mean product should last?


As for the 212, it is not bad but it is no longer the best value cooler. There are now a bunch of coolers as good or better for similar or less money.

I'm probably leaning towards keeping it.

As said above, the TRUE Spirit 140 Power is very good with a good price. It is as good as the NH-D14 .. 0.6c warmer & 2.7dBA quieter. Change the fan to TY-143 and it' remains as quiet and cool up to stock fan;s 1300rpmp limit but continues with 5-8c better cooling and of course gets louder as fan speed increases the cooling ability to a maximum of 2500rpm.

Here the TRUE Spirit 140 Power is £33.77 and TY-143 is £6.95
