Had an h100i leak onto a EVGA GTX780

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Put in ticket. Got response to send supporting documentation to an email address, which I did. Nothing back yet since the 05/26/2016. Dead gaming computer. Sent PM to "Corsair Joe" with no response. Any help on expediting ticket appreciated. Wanted to use the option of giving them my credit card and having them send another while they test.

That sucks - I'm sorry to hear that (I have the same combo too). Did it just trash your card? Board & other components OK?

Oh man that really sucks. Out of curiosity did it rupture hose, pump, fittings or rad? Did it leak when PC was working or it happened during startup?

That's the risk you have to take when dealing with AIOs. Unlike custom loop, AIO coolant is not guaranteed to be non-conductive.

Seems to only be graphics cards at this point thankfully.

Can't tell where it leaked from. Only that there was an oily liquid on the card and on the hose directly above it. If I had to guess I'd say perhaps it leaked from the fitting under load then traveled down the hose and dripped onto the card. Maybe in the future they'll design something that can be placed over the card that can direct the liquid to the bottom of the case if this happens. Kind of makes me wish I'd gotten one of the cards with the back plate as the amount of liquid didn't seem to be too great. Obviously enough to blow something out though. Have confirmed system still works by utilizing a card from another system.
