post #22971 of 28303
How should I start this. Last night my computer made some weird noises few seconds later my computer all of a sudden shut down. I then check the inside of my compute and my H100i has a leak inside of it. My H100i has a leak in it and I have no way to check if my computer is working or not. I filed a RMA last night. What should I do about my computer.

The computer likely shut down due to the H100i not being able to keep it cool. It likely got too hot and shut itself down.

Since you'll have to remove the H100i anyways to send the RMA in, you can call Corsair and see if they can send you one in the meantime so that you minimize downtime. If you have a spare cooler, you can throw that on. If you're like me and worry about if it'll still work, let it cool down and then start it up into BIOS for a minute.

My H100 went out two weeks or so ago and while I didn't have a leak, my rig did shut itself down. It would let me get into BIOS until it got too hot and would shut down again. Threw on the replacement H100i and it's all good now. I wouldn't worry if I were you.

Take a look inside your case for any wet spot. Take pictures to the leak point & any other components in your computer that make contact with the liquid. It will be useful when claiming RMA.

Then disassemble your computer, dry all of the components using paper towels until you can't see any wet spot. Then air dry the component for at least 24 hours. You also can put in a bowl full of rice (un-cook). It will help dry the components faster. You also can use rubbing alcohol to removed any lingering moisture. Then let them air dry for 2 - 3 days, just to make sure. When you confident all components already dry, assemble them, using stock cooler for now. Now you can test if any of the components are damaged. Email to corsair. I'm sure they will help you out.

Good luck.

If I was you I would contact yellowbeard@corsair.com and tell him what happened. Get pictures and email them to him. Make arrangements with him for what he suggests you do. He may want you to send hm components or your entir PC. If the leak is caused by a factory defect, Corsair will make things right. Do this asap. If you think you want to try drying your hardware first, in my profession as an electroics tech for 20 years I have always used a hair dryer to dry the water as fast as possible witout damaging the board. Very often, if tis is done before any component get a chance to corrode, your components will work fine.

Hey guys, are the Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition fans good for using 4 in push n' pull in my H100i? I want silence and good overall cooling capacity, but if the High Performance ones can be quiet as the Quiet Editions I will buy them.

The SP120 Quiets are going to more quiet than the SP120 PE. You can make the performance ones more quiet by using the 12v to 7v adapter but that just lowers your RPM down to what a quiet will run full speed. You'll sacrifice a few degrees to use the quiet over performance but it all depends on how much you want to hear them.

Are Corsair hydro coolers not very popular? This threads seems kinda inactive, I'm currently looking at the H80i for my 650D case.

I ordered my new haswell system, and I picked the h100i, but I'm super paranoid about leaking, lol..

I'm just a paranoid person in general. redface.gif

Don't worry man I learned that the liquid is non conductive and nothing happened. It is a great cooler.

Considering the newer Corsair CLCs are using rubber tubing instead of corrugated plastic tubing, leaks are not likely. I run my H80i 24/7 for months without any issue so far.
