I'm on the fence about buying one of these bad boys, mostly because I'm ultra-hyper-mega paranoid about drowning my rig. I'll probably be fine, but has anyone had any bad experiences with one of these? Not necessarily disastrous, but more annoyances or disappointments.

In short: help me ease my worry!

I have an H110 on my cpu and an H75 on my gpu and they've been great, no problems at all. My Alphacool Eisberg on the other hand decided to leak all over the place while the system was running yesterday, everything still works fine now though. Not using that thing ever again. mad.gif

I recently had a defective pump on my H70 Core and was still in warranty and replaced it without any trouble with a H75.

I did not know this. I'll definitely do an RMA for this. Thx! Did you go directly through corsair or your vendor you bought it from?

The vendor i bought it from only gave 2 years. The rest of the warranty is directly from Corsair itself.

https://corsair.secure.force.com/home/home.jsp

Sign up on the link above and make a request through a ticket to Corsair and fill out the form. After a couple of days I received a RMA label to return to Corsair.
After a week or so I received mail that my product has been replaced and is on it's way back to me.

The service from Corsair is absolutely the best and the fastest.

post #27335 of 28253
guys, i have a problem. bought this H100i for cheap. hate the stupid wiring with two harnesses. my plan was to rewire V+ and GND to ATX connectors direct from the PSU and just let the pump run wide open all the time. well, sometime between when i opened it up and actually went to desolder the stock wires, i found that two of the pads have ripped off. the ground pad remains. can anyone help me identify a point that i can solder to? just need to find V+ thinking maybe the nearby C16... but the circuit may be broken without the pad



should i just junk this and buy another one? they're fairly cheap, and i need to finish this project in the next few days... this is a disaster. please help
post #27336 of 28253
you couldve just connected the sata power directly to psu in the first place ..it runs OK and at 100% then....im no circuit guru im afriad..contact corsair rep Joseph here on the OCN..they can maybe hook you up with schematics....

or get another pump block and mod the unit...like use an eisberg or raijintek block..ive heard good things about them:thumb:
post #27337 of 28253
WHY does the corsair link software constantly ping the hard drive? its always using a TINY bit of cpu which i guess i understand but i'm not even logging things with it and it is always hdd access.
post #27338 of 28253
So, Newegg has a flash sale for The h100 for about 60 (refurbished). Should I bite? Is getting a refurbished one okay? A point was brought up that a refurbished one could potentially be more reliable since it's had to go through rigorous testing, therefore could be less likely to break than a new one.

Kind of outlandish, I know, but would love some thoughts before I pull the trigger.
post #27339 of 28253
As a service tech, I tend to avoid refurbished products except for computers. However a few people over the years have purchased Corsair refurbs and reported here that they worked fine. I think it's a pretty good deal for $60.

Hello guys.I have a 5820k,Msi x99 Mpower board and an Enthoo pro case...So in case of reliability what should i buy the h110i GT or the Gtx?Gtx is 20 euros more expensive.What should i buy?I am targeting at 4ghz and 1,12v.Would i be able to get away with an h100i maybe?Also anyone knows if i mount the fans inside the case as exhaust if i will have any problem fitting the cpu power cable because it will be near the fans?Thanks
