These have a five year warranty, and Corsair stands behind it. If something goes wrong in 4 years and 11 months, you will get a replacement unit, and if it damaged your equipment, Corsair will likely replace it (assuming it's all caused by a manufacturing defect). Warranties are not just to "let them charge more". They give the consumer piece of mind because they know the manufacturer stands behind their product.
I just checked Asetek's site, and none of there products is even remotely like the H100. Unless I'm missing something (and I don't doubt that I could be), the square pumps on the H60, H80 and H100 and the round pumps on the Asetek products are nothing alike. In fact, I'm pretty sure these Corsair units are made by Coolit in Calgary, not Asetek.
You're using 3 H70s? That's explains your remarks, as the H70 is only one of Corsair's products, and it does have the round pump which may indeed be made by Asetek (I couldn't swear to it though). The H80 and H100 (and H60) use different pumps made by Coolit.
So, you can go on about how there's no difference, and how they're all "the same kit", but they are not.
woah killer, lets not get snappy. im not trying to start a fight. like i stated before i use the corsair kits aswell...why? not cuz of the warranty and not because i think they are better....i just am. i have everything else corsair in most of my systems. im not knocking the product at all. its solid. the corsair link system is cool if you got the money to drop on it ( i personally think its to pricey) which is why i made the statement previously.
You are correct in that Coolit does make the new square pumps. Im using the circle pumps that are made by Asetek that corsair used for a short time. Both of these systems are identical, Asetek is even trying to file lawsuits against coolit over the production of these (i seriously hope this doesnt happen...) micro channels and aesthetics aside they are pretty much the same pumps and circuits.
i can go on if you would like but ive done my research and it sounds like you need to do some of your own.

while reading through the site I keep running into gentle typhoons being at or near the top of good yet quiet radiator fans. My question is, I was looking at either the cooler master excalibur fans or the newer corsair fans.( the SP and AF series) what is the difference between the two? and which one would perform better on the radiator of the original H70 while being a bit quieter than the stock fans?
the corsair SP fans are fantastic imo and i really like the color rings.Edited by PCEnthusiast85 - 11/25/12 at 8:41am
