post #24891 of 28303
if ur paranoid about safety go for air cooling, i use my h100i so far no probs
post #24892 of 28303
Its just something that I wont really be looking for as on my desk its not in a place where i can just look at a side window and see any leaks, have to pull the tower off the desk open the side panel and look
post #24893 of 28303
yes but just for the added safety thats why i like to put a double containment, just want to know if any of you have done it?

No plans at the moment and I'm not sure if there will be in the future. Link was specifically designed to work with Coolit coolers (H80/H80i and H100/H100i), to make it work with non-Coolit coolers like the the H105, that is something that we may look into in the future, but that will require to re-write the SW from ground up and that will take some time.

so i want to ask if putting a double containment to the flexible hoses and the pump will have any effect on cooling or may cause the pump to overheat?

(maybe rubber tubing also or plastic so if ever it leaks or bursts it will just leak to the bottom where the rad will be located)

You really don't have to put anything on the hoses to reinforce to structure or to make sure that it doesn't burst. Though, you could put some for aesthetic reasons, which I have seen some users have done to match their rig's overall theme. But to put them on just to ensure rigidity, is not really necessary.

That is the last thing that would worry about it. Leak cases are the least reports we come across with any of our coolers. Although they are rare, just in case it happens with your cooler and has damaged other hardware in your system, we''l have no problem to compensate you for those damaged parts that got affected. But of course, given that we have enough data that suggest the cooler leaked due to hardware failure. That said, If we found that the cooler was tampered or modified, then that would be totally different ball game.

And to add on, we do have a structure for this type of cases. They are not treated like your standard RMA process, we'd like to make sure that all leak cases are looked into carefully and handled accordingly.

So I took the pump off today to RMA it, good old Corsair already have a replacement being shipped to me! But check out the below, it does not look good! Screws holding doe the heat plate are covered in corrosion, weird gunk appears to be leaking out top, wth is that? This unit is less than 2 years old, been sitting in my tower since day 1. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)







For anyone who was following, my replacement CPU cooler arrived today, a H100i no less!

This is fantastic customer service, coupled with a 5 year warranty, well done Corsair!

When you pay for an Express RMA, how long roughly does it take for the refund once the RMA'd item is received?

No, just 99%.

You're sure not going to notice any difference in performance even at the five year mark, unless something has gone wrong with the cooler.
It's no different from leaving any other liquid in a sealed container. I have liquids in my garage that have been there for 15-20 years and have not evaporated away. If they are sealed air tight, they will last a long long time.

@darkelixa

I have installed quite a few Corsair AIO water coolers in two of my PCs (three coolers), and in friends PCs (three coolers), and in customer's PCs (too many to count) and none of them have come back leaking. I've been using an H50 and an H100 for about two years now without any leaking.

My PC is sitting in my desk, so I can't normally see in the side window either, but I'm not worried. However, I do pull it out about once a month to do a minor dusting inside the case, so I do inspect it a little then. Never had any leaks at all.

Some people have been unlucky (go back about four pages), but overall pretty much all of the AIO water coolers have proven very reliable over the years.

Something you should know is, in the past if a leak in a Corsair AIO water cooler has caused damage to a person's computer, and it can be shown that it was a factory defect, Corsair has actually replaced components for that person (one guy ended up with a better system than he started with). I can't say if they still do that or not, but Corsair does stand behind their product and their customers.

On another note, I got my $20 Corsair rebate check today, for a PSU I purchased about a month ago. That was a 600W Semi-modular PSU that cost me about $60 cdn after the rebate. Sweet....

thanks for your response, actually my purpose is not for added rigidity but for leakage. so the leak can be controlled and then drained to a safe place by gravity (because my case is the FT03-mini so the RAD would be placed at the bottom) rather than splashing all over my system. the concept is the same with double containment piping. i just want to know if it is a good idea or not and what material to use best? because i would cover the pump and the two flexible hoses.

Nice, this is reassure me. I just bought corsair H75 yesterday. It's has not been installed cuz I don't have time yesterday because of my work, maybe I'll install it tonight.
