Either going to go a corsair h100i in push pull with noctua fans and replacing the loud rubbish corsair ones or going a noctua nh-d14, still not sure which to go as i fear the h100i can leak and destroy my new build

The term "water cooling" is a misnomer. Whether it is a custom loop or an AIO cooler you use a non-conductive coolant, not water.

That aside, the odds of it spouting a leak if you don't mistreat it are slim to none.

Negative in pretty much everything. Wate has got to be the most commonly used coolant, it's also one of the best performing. "Non-Conductive Coolant" is the misnomer. All of those coolants become conductive after being ran through the metal parts for a while and becoming ionized.

Really? Everything I ever read said that water was the worst thing you could possibly put in a liquid cooling system.
See, this is one of the many reasons I joined this site a couple of months ago, to learn stuff I didn't know and to learn what knowledge I already had was incorrect.

Aside from water, what would you put in it? Most "coolants" are just water with dye, corrosion inhibitors and biocide premixed.

I was always told to only buy coolants labeled as non-conductive. For example this or this.

So if the AIO cooler leaks it wont do any damage is that what you are saying?

It's a marketing claim. FluidXP contains primarily de-ionized water. There's no magic in it, just corrosion protectors, biocides and a surfectant. While the coolant starts off having low conductivity, as you run the coolant through your system, free ions from the metals will ionise the water. This happens slowly, and the corrosion protectors will inhibit the effect. But it's there and so the conductivity increases.

Primochill ICE doesn't list ingredients but I'd imagine based on the "NON-TOXIC biodegradable" it's probably mainly DI water and propylene glycol mix just like FluidXP, EKoolant, and plenty of others.

Getting a leak on your graphics card or motherboard doesn't mean it will immediately cause a short circuit. But it can and does happen, and there's no coolant manufacturer who will actually back up their claim and replace your dead GPU. AIO vendor like Corsair might replace your hardware, but only because it's a sealed product and the tubes are not supposed to come loose or burst. They wouldn't claim their fluid is non-conductive.

Yep thats what I was afraid of, it leaking from one of the connectors and dripping / spurting onto the gpu or mainboard and frying my equipment. Its a build i cant do for along time as my wedding is taking all my funds from me

I had a liquid cooled system a few years ago. Had it up and running for a month and loved it. Gaming was awesome as temperatures were fantastic. Then my hard drive died on me and during the process of replacing it the power connection to the pump got loose. The water block that I had a copper base and an acrylic top and because the cpu got so hot it melted the acrylic enough to make the fittings sag. I quickly turned the power off but coolant was already all over the place. Ruined my mobo,cpu,graphics card,and sound card I had. Luckily where my father worked they had a CNC machine and the kid who ran it made me a new acrylic top for my waterblock. I bought new components and got it running again for another 7 months before a faulty switch on the psu shorted the mobo and cpu. After that all happened I decided to build a new system all air cooled because of that experience. Liquid cooling coolant will ruin computer electronics like WiSK said. You just have to avoid the leaks and mishaps that can happen when liquid cooling like I had. I told myself after that I would never do liquid cooling again because of it. But that has subsided some as I bought a Corsair H100i to cool my cpu. I am still very weary about doing that. If everything works out I may build another liquid cooled system as I like how some of your guy's system are done. One thing I did learned,is to stay away from liquid cooling a mid tower cases next time if I do try it again. Just not enough room in there. lol
