[Official] Corsair Hydro Series Club - Page 2262

post #22611 of 28467
Well earlier this week I lost 3 fan blades on my stock cooled EVGA GTX560 SE. I ziptied a 80mm x 80mm x 38mm 4000 rpm fan to the cooler and got horrible temps. Load temp were reaching 80*c average. So I found a 25mm thick fan and turned it into a shroud. I notched the sides about halfway up to allow air to flow out the side into the larger fin areas and max temps are now about 57*c. So that type of shrouding worked in that case. But honestly with todays AIO coolers you will see little, if any, advantage to having it with shrouds. It better to have it in Push/Pull. Like I have on my H60.

Do you guys think the corsair closed loop water cooling is safer than custom water cooling?

My main concern is leakage and i read around a few threads about corsair helping their customer with compensation if their product does leak. Is this true?

How about custom water cooling companies such as koolance and ekwb will they provide compensation if their product is discovered to be faulty?

Do you think there is more chance in the corsair hydro series leaking or the custom water cooling kit?

I've had the H50, H70, H80i and now the H100i, all have worked flawless for me, never had problems personally. Leaking is very rare and if you're actually unlucky enough to get one that leaks, they do cover it plus damaged parts. (From what I've read and heard about anyway, though there could be a limit)

For custom watercooling, I'm pretty sure you're not covered if other hardware is damaged from them leaking. You should always leak test after building them, it's the best way to go about it. (Before installing obviously)

If you want to be on the safe side, you can leak test the Corsair unit(s) as well, just hook up to a PSU and run it for whatever amount of time until you're comfortable with it.

I had a H100 and it was a good solution for me but I went with a custom loop to bring my temps down

Yeah, custom loop is better which it should be for the cost. He was asking about leaks and I responded to that, not the performance.

It's all personal preference anyway. I got an AIO cooler for the ease of install and forget type deal. (Quick and simple for the most part)

If and/or when I want better temps, I will goto full custom watercooling. For now, this will do. wink.gif

I just got my H80i the other day. Here's a pic of it installed...



So far it's been working very well! No leaks and a silent pump...I'm quite pleased with it. smile.gif

Anyone ever here occasional noise from you cooler. Sounds like water rushing through for a brief second? anything to worry about?
post #22618 of 28467
I recently got my h100i and I like ti so far. It's been problem free, but after checking it out you're not able to add to the loop like say the Swiftech 'closed loop' system they sell. I might end up selling my h100i off to get the swiftech one.

I agree with Nightz2k.
I've had an H50 (still have it), H70 and H100 (in my sig rig) and all of them are still working fine. The worst I can say is the H50 is a little noisy, but of course it's the oldest design. Corsair will back up their product, and if you get a leak from a factory defect, they have replaced ruined hardware from what I have seen. In fact, one guy was bragging the hardware he got back was better than the hardware that was damaged.

Leaks are very rare in Corsair coolers. However, if you do a full loop, you are 100% responsible yourself. If all you're worried about is leaks, imao the Corsair closed loop coolers are by far the safest gamble, especially for someone new to water cooling. As for the other companies you mentioned, I couldn't say. You should ask about them in threads about their products.

Also agree about using aio coolers due to the easy installation and maintenance free design.

Maybe next time research a little before purchasing. (just saying).
