I'd reach for my H80/H100 right now but I'm lazy and it's out of reach... both of mine have the greenish copper oxidation on them... Almost like an old penny would get (but it's only a little bit discolored, not like the whole plate.). I don't think it's anything to worry about.

Wanna take a picture for us if it's not in use?

Believe it or not good old Coca Cola will remove tarnish from copper. There's a ton of other uses for it as well as a cleaning agent. If alcohol doesn't make the surface clean enough you're going to have to find alternatives. Another thing you could try is this stuff called Bar Keepers Friend which is a white powder/compound you mix with a little water and use a dobie sponge or soft cloth to work it in and then clean it off with water. After doing that I would follow up with alcohol just to make sure everything is very dried out before applying your TIM. Good luck and post before/after pics.

After no luck with Ebuyer, I posted on the Corsair forums and RAMGUY replied asking me to request an RMA.

A few days later UPS turned up to collect the faulty unit and a few days after that a replacement turned up.

Haven't installed it yet because I'm waiting on a new case to turn up.

How would it become that way anyway

IDK, just what It looked like when I took it off. I figure its heat from running it on a gpu with IHS removed, it was fine when cooling a cpu. Its never effected the temps at all. 16c-26 idle and 48c loads on a 580gtx for gaming and such. The pump was mounted for over a year on a gpu before removing it to Re-Tim.

Like I said, few whips with some sandpaper and it was shinny as ever. Its back on the gpu and works great thumb.gif

Morning folks, I am just in the process of rebuild my main PC with some updated hardware (GA-Z77X-UD5H, i7 2600K) along with the H80i and two Noctua NF-F12 fans.

I have to have them pulling air from inside the case to the outside through the H80i but I won't be doing anything but some basic OC'ing on the CPU so hopefully that is ok?

Can I also ask, is it ok to connect the two fans together via a Y splitter and use the motherboard CPU Fan (PWM) connection as the system will be mainly used to run OSX and I am not too concerned about using the Corsair software to control things?

I have used this setup with NF-P12 fans and a TRUE120 for some time on older hardware (GA-EP45-UD3P, Q9650) with great results.


Thanks for the advice.

Why not wait for haswell? and you should be fine like that setup you want to do.

The last with the Y-splitter I don't know anything about tongue.gif

The hardware came from a friend of mine who is a RAID freak and it wouldn't work with his setup so I got it to play with...

You can push case air through a rad if need be, but it is always best to have outside air being pushed through the rad into the case. I use the included y splitter on my NF-F12 fans plugged into a pwm header and it works fine.

I suppose I could turn the front two 80mm case fans round and have them pulling air out. I didn't really want to do it this way as the are towards the bottom of the front but if the H80i is better drawing in air I might have to...
