Hey guys I'm considering an Antec 620 for a 24/7 folding rig but I've never liked the idea of water inside my machines, especially for expensive machines that I run at full load 24/7. So I was wondering if you guys here would be comfortable running something like an Antec 620 24/7 and trust it to not leak for at least 2 years. Has anybody run an ASetek made all in one for folding for a long period of time? Has anyone heard of any leaks with any Asetek/Antec coolers? I remember reading about 2 leaks I think with the H50/H70 a while ago but wanted to know what the estimate for known leaks is up to. Any information on the subject of constant long term Asetek WC use or on any leaks we've heard about would be appreciated. Thanks. smile.gif

If I am not misstaken, you got warrenty to cover that. And if you get leak, antec buy you new mb if that has been broken due to water leak.

So if all you worry about is that it is water, then go for it! 99.9% certain you are covered if **** should happen. It's is actually mutch safer to buy a sett rather than build a custom loop when thinking of water leak..

Well technically according to Antec's warranty they only cover the actual unit, not any damage it causes, though in the two leaks I remember hearing about Corsair definitely took care of one of the guys and there was very little information on the other.

Either way I'd rather avoid having to think about what would happen and if antec/asetek would help me out or not if there was a leak. I'd rather just find out as much info as I can about the number of known leaks (just a handful of known leaks out of however many sold would be acceptable odds for me) as well as a some people to chime in who have run an asetek cooler 24/7 (or close to it) for a long time.

Lol! I was mistaken it seems. When i talked to them, they sayed that if i have doesn't have anything to do whit the reason that there is a leak, they would cover it. But as you saied, they are not obliged to do it.

Have run mine 24/7 for 3 months, got a friend that have had it seens it was realeesed. I havn't actually heard of someone who has gotten a leak whitout modding the pump. Having it at "stock" I mean that it is almost imposible to get leak...IF you dont damage it somehow.

Dude go for it, they are pretty solid unit's, major improvement over the h70 design. Get one, its only $49.95 now, it wont leak and you wont regret it. thumb.gif

microcenter has them on sale, here: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0361180 smile.gif

VI. Local Law And Your Warranty
This warranty gives you specific legal rights. You may also have other rights granted under local law. These rights may vary.


How are you rights in your contry?

In norway I get 5 years warrenty, not only 3:-)

Edit: In Norway, cell phones, computer parts etc have ALL 5 years warrenty, even if they only state 2 or 3 years. Not very many in norway know this, the law changed it 2009

I appreciate all your opinions but I'm really looking for two things: Any leaks that people have heard of, and impressions of reliability from people that have run the cooler 24/7 for long periods of time. I understand that the odds of leaks are so small that they are insignificant to most of you and I'm not trying to say it's a bad cooler or that I expect it to leak. I think it's a good cooler and I'd imagine the chances of a leak are less than 0.1% but I'm trying to find out roughly what those odds are, if they are 2 known leaks out of all the units sold, 10 known leaks, 20 etc.

Thanks. smile.gif

I was worried about the same thing as you, and googled, searched etc but couldnt find any numbers on leaks. Failure in pump etc is not that uncommon, but they just give you a new one. Leaks, as they sayed at my store, you can never be safe, but it is mutch more likely that your house get hit be lightning. If you dont put stress on the cables, and install it corectely, it is "impossible" to get leaks.

But i have sendt an mail, i want the exact number as well,hehe

24 hours ago I was right where you are now, looking for info. I got the 620 last night and I cant be happier. I've tried 4 coolers in the past few months to keep my aging C2 955 cool and the 620 is by far the best in its price range.
