Coolermaster, Corsair or NZXT

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I am looking to build a new system either an i7 4790k or the cheaper amd 8350 for gaming in mmos so I wont be pushing the Overclock too far, I will also be buying a new case to suit either or and a new cpu cooler and using some of my existing parts ( still yet to make my mind up on AMD or Intel)

Looking at keeping the beasts of the CPUS cold with an All in One unit as I am not confident to make a full custom loop.

The options I have from my supplier Umart are as follows;

A) NZXT Kraken X61 Water Cooler

B)Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H100i

C)Cooler Master Nepton 280L

Will any of these coolers leak as I don't have the cash to replace components if the cooler does leak and destroys components.

I can buy a bigger case to suit the cooler as the case, mainboard, cpu, psu, and cooler are all going to be brand new:P

Thats fine, I am pretty sure most fractal cases will fit that rad.

So it wont have any weird pump noises, fails or complete blow ups like I see on neweggs reviews?

that cant be guaranteed but at least switech h220 or h220x doesnt have those problems as frequently corsair does

I just hope it doesnt leak all over the system or blow up:) The Kraken does look very nice, it has a longer warranty than Corsair but I have heard that Nzxt will not replace parts if destroyed like corsair does frown.gif Worth replacing the stock fans for some Noctua ones? Also have to find a good case with really good air flow. Originally I was going to get a Noctua d14

Corsair won't replace parts either, they will reimburse for current market value of the part that was destroyed.
so lets say if you bought a motherboard for $400 dollars and a year later your liquid cooler leaked and destroyed it but it's market value is now $200 that is what you would get from Corsair.
I myself only air cool as I have seen too many problems and damage to others systems from liquid.
electricity and water don't mix.
