Good to hear your leak didn't damage anything smile.gif I read your post up a bit, before your reply and it added to my paranoia tongue.gif

Yeah, I'm just paranoid about it cause it's my frist custom built PC and have never had any experience with anything water cooling lol.

I picked the h100i, because it's a lot more awesome looking than the big ugly noctua stuff smile.gif

Funny you would post that at this time, I've been active in this thread for over 1.5 years and even at 2300 pages I'd never seen this thread go dark, and only occasionally, for more than 24-48 hours. I guess you could attribute the recent inactivity to customer satisfaction and the wealth of problem solving info/answer's that you find by searching this thread's previous posts. The Corsair Hydro Series are by far and away the most popular AIO unit's out there for years. And because of Corsair's CS and very competitive warranty programs I don't see them loosing the Industry lead anytime soon wink.gif

Leaks have happened in the past but they are so rare I really believe it's a non-issue, additionally if you are one of the unlucky few, Corsair will cover any damage to your other components with the proper documentation biggrin.gif

IMHO you made a fine choice in choosing the H100i over the "Classic" D-14. I, and like many in this thread, were previous "old school" owners of the "Venerable" D-14 and none of us would ever go back to the Behemoth Air Coolers of days past. The H100(i) vs D-14 debate has been beaten to death so I won't go into it here ... again redface.gif ... but for "Real World" user experience and why many of us switched you could do a search of this thread just using Noctua D-14 or Noctua NH-D14. Depending on your "Setup" and overclocking aggressiveness you'll find that the H100i slightly outperforms the D-14 with slightly more noise ... but all the other benefits of mobo access and overall cooler running components in your case can't be matched by the D-14 biggrin.gif

HERE is another in house thread discussion, most I agree with but one I don't, I do not know why Guru3D's review HERE OC load numbers show the D14 outperforming the H100i when most reviews and More Importantly "Real World" users like us in this thread have experienced the opposite. In most OC situations, I found my H100 to outperform my D-14 by 1c-2c degrees under load with the fans at a tolerable noise level (Low-Med). And by all reviews and user input the H100i "generally" outperforms the H100 by 3c-4c ... sooo his review load graph's don't make sense to me UNLESS it's because Hilbert does all his testing on an "open bench" rolleyes.gif

Well, the thread was dead for a week, while I noticed other brands are still on the first page. I'm doing some research on enclosed water cooling units and was curious, thus my post. I've decided on the H80i since I like the way it looks and the performance looks great.

That said, I can't wait to replace my D14. I am so sick of that thing cutting me with its fins whenever I want remove the fans for cleaning or when I want to do some cable management work.

Yeah, this has been a pretty steady thread for a few years. True that it has slowed a bit over the last week or so, but stuff happens. Almost 2300 pages can't be wrong....

I just installed the H80i in my old faithful Lian-Li PC-7 USB case, I used Noctua NF-F12 fans controlled via the motherboard and couldn't be happier with the noise levels (It doesn't really make any!).

Has anyone used these Noctua fans: http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=productview&products_id=54&lng=en

I was wondering if it's possible to use a H90 with these fans, with a 120mm opening for my casing.

It should be possible, because it's uses standard 120mm holes. Just make sure that you got 140mm in height and 150 in width smile.gif

i've been using my H100i for 3 months now, and the pump has been running silently up until today.

i was running my stock fans on the "Performance" profile for a couple of days recently, because I just setup my GTX670 SLI, so i wanted the unit to exhaust as much air as possible.

then today i had to concentrate on my work so i turned down the fans from "Performance" profile to "Quiet" profile. then i heard the noise. i thought at first that it was one of my fans that was loose. but after re-attaching all of my fans, the noise was still there.

i removed the pump and confirmed that it was indeed the pump that is causing the noise. it doesn't matter whether there are fans attached to the pump or not, as soon as the power is turned on, i can hear the pump make a loud grinding/rattling sound.

can this be fixed without requesting for an RMA? frown.gif

If it makes a clicking sound take it out right now. Same thing happened with me and going with an RMA is the best idea.

Not too late to join? My H110. I love this 280mm rad and 140mm fans.



I know its a mess biggrin.gif When I get a new power supply I'll get it all cleaned up
