Thank GOD his motherboard didnt get any on it. But ya these reservoirs I DO NOT recommend. Because of their cracking issues they have. he was talking about fixing his with some epoxy, and that jogged a thought in my mind about getting some acrylic sheets that are the proper size for the 2X5.25 drive bay reservoir and making my own reservoir using the acrylic sheets and epoxy resin.
Uh. There are over 175 people in the RASA kit thread and none have reported an issue about leaking from cracking. The only person that had a problem was someone that found there was a leak where the power cable goes. That was it.
I don't see why your brother didn't leak test before installing it into his PC. The kit does come with the PSU jump starter just for that. I believe in your brothers case, it was user error and not the fault of XSPC. They have had pump issues, but everyone has contacted XSPC and got it replaced. Not to mention showed up to their door step in 2-3 days from Hong Kong.
So before you start knocking their product. Make sure it's not user error. Because I know for a fact when I received mine, I took a good look around all the stuff and made sure it was good to go before it went into my PC.
