submit rma,
argue back and forth with corsair,
turn down their initial partial coverage.
start a thread, hope it gets momentum of supports,
contact the retailer you bought it from
contact a official rep.
more emails,
more popularity gain for your thread to tell others of your causes.

is that it? or am i missing something lol

i think i would just buy a d15 instead biggrin.gif

Just get a high-end air cooler. AIO are doomed to fail sooner or later and it can bring your whole computer to the grave with it. Then you have to go through a long process with the manufacturer to get a compensation that will unlikely cover all your loss.

Air vs AIO is a matter for debate. Remember that large air coolers are heavy, and some people (like myself) don't like the idea of having all that weight hanging from the motherboard (especially if you move the computer a lot).

I have a original H50 that I refilled with tap water 3 years ago. They're pretty resilient.
post #15 of 19
I haven't seen one last more than about 18 months. Its generally pretty hot here though, they seem to just... run out of fluid.
post #16 of 19
Have had my original 1st gen Corsair H50 since Feb' 2011. It's been going strong since, no lack of fluid and it was out in my garage for two winters (~15F or less for 5 months each winter).

Just started it up a couple months ago and was completely silent while running, might be a big assembly but solid (also an Asetek based model).

OT: I dislike huge air coolers here, not a fan of putting in two skyscrapers of metal in my rig.

I would much rather run a heavy cooler than using a AIO risking to leak and fry the whole system.

I haven't seen a single thread since I browse regularly these forums about some one breaking his computer due to excessive cooler weight. I did move my computer a lot when I had the NH-D14 with 3 fans on it, a hell of a cooler and everything are still in once piece. I would be quite impressed if some one managed to break one due to the cooler weight! My computer is quite heavy but I still take some precaution not to slam it on the ground. Some times it did hit the floor harder than what I intended. I think it's more of personal preference. If you feel more confident with AIO, it's cool. I just say it might leak and that is much more likely than a heavy heatsink breaking your board.

This. Huge metal coolers are totally okay. Nothing can really go wrong with them, its all thought and made well. Physics!
