The main issue I have with refurbs is the 30 day warrany for some of them, if not all.

I got the H100i GTX to cool my i7 3820 @4,1 GHz and it almost never goes over 50°C, got the SP120Q PWM in Push/pull setup blowing to the outside.
For images check my sig.

I agree. I feel that, if a manufacturer refurbs their products for resale, they should stand behind them with same warranty as a new product. I feel that, if they are unwilling to do this, they are admitting that do not have confidence the refurbished unit will last as long as a new unit.
I seem to recall the Corsair rep stating the returns have the same warranty as new and it was just the store (New egg in this particular case) that was stating incorrect information. I would suggest contacting Corsair for clarification before purchasing. The one thing that stands out about Corsair coolers is the warranty and without that I'm not sure I would purchase their coolers over any other brand.

Just for clarification, Corsair refurb cooler does have a 1 year warranty from us. Matter of fact, the refurb 1 year warranty policy is applicable across all our product category. So if you purchased a refurb Corsair product, we got you covered for 1 year, there's no need to contact your reseller after their return policy period.

For some reason George (Lampard) mentioned 30 days on a PCMR thread on reddit, and that stuck in my head. Thanks for the clarification.

Hi people i figured this being the Corsair Hydro thread it's the best place to ask for help. My sig rig has been chugging along since 2010 with parts being upgraded as £'s permit. She's an old girl now biggrin.gif but still does the trick for me @1080p. My latest edition (an XFX R9 390) seems to be having a rather negative effect on my overall case temps. My H50 has handled my 1055T@ 4060Mhz like a boss (with my evil 4KRPM Nidec PWM 120x38mm). During IBT Max level passes it used to get a high BUT always stable 57c after 10 passes.

Now when gaming with the added heat load dumped in the case from the 390 and perhaps a LITTLE degrading of the CPU over the years games are now crashing and for whatever reason i can't get IBT to pass EVEN 3 passes with the same settings!! (again why i think degradation). It locks up and has to be powered off. So i guess a small VCore boost would keep this rig rolling till Zen time......

...... However this now puts me OVER 64c!! with the H50. I have for the time being switched the Nidec from exhaust to intake and it will pass standard 10 passes@ 56/57c as normal. Now i don't really want to leave as is (intake) as it's NOT filtered and will just make a darn mess LMAO!! I was just going to get a H110i GT but as i just raided the "kitty" for the £269 390 another £100 would be rather hard to justify at the moment i was wondering what my other (Corsair of course thumb.gif) options are.

Soon this rig (well CPU/MoBo/DDR3) will be put out to pasture for the equivalent tier Zen CPU/MoBo/DDR4 as available and funds permit. So i want to upgrade this H50 to another Corsair AIO. My K62 has 2 x 140mm fans on top and a 120 on the back where the H50 is. Now i was wondering how much of a difference a H80i GT would be over this H50/Nidec combo? I'm hoping Zen won't be a toaster oven so i perhaps won't need the H110i GT and the £20 or so difference between the two will "sweeten" the deal some. I just don't want to get buyers remorse if i DON'T go the whole hog (H110i GT) and get the H80i GT and find it only shaves a degree or two off my load temps!!

And vice versa i don't want to go overboard and throw £100 at something and find Zen sips power and the cooling is overkill (no such thing i know but..... biggrin.gif ) but a H80i GT would of been "good enough"

So any recommendation? (won't lower clock speed tho..... MWAHAHAHA). She's getting 1.42v's VCore and whatever LLC adds on if that helps.

EDIT: Just tried IBT max settings and it locked up before the FIRST pass@ 58c mad.gif

Thanx.

Hi mate no problem i have also removed the top cover so you can see where in relation the 2 140's are. For now i have also reversed the Nidec around so it is an INTAKE (on the H50). Bottom right of the pic fan is also an INTAKE. Top 2 are EXHAUSTS. Naturally would like the Nidec to be exhausting really as it's unfiltered but for now it WILL pass IBT standard tests x 10 and more importantly play Fallout 4 without the case being taken off biggrin.gif

The bad thing is now when gaming i can put my face to the top left 140 and i would say there is quite a fierce heat (and nice cooking PCB smell which i guess is the 390 warmin' the place up LMAO!!). I can see now why the H50 was struggling choking on dat hot air! biggrin.gif. I will leave as is for now or i have to start removing case sides and i feel this a better solution until i can get the H110i (decided to just stop nickel n diming and just buy ONCE and be sure my Zen CPU will be nice and "snug").

I would love to do the Red Mod though i have to say this XFX with a custom fan curve/redoing of the TIM with Ceramique doesn't go above 67c. It't just the heat load it dumps into the rig i think. The 470GTX and then the 6870 were much easier on the heat load. And i guess before we were "sailing close to the wind" with 57c IBT with them. Unfortunately my ASUS MoBo in it's wisdom makes the BOTTOM PciE slot the master x16 and the top a x4 i think. And right under the 390 is my Xonar. And the H50 has a high block/pump and wouldn't fit i think..

Any tips though if you have any would be appreciated.

Thanx.
