I recall people complaining about the poor quality build on those when they came out so I'm not really surprised unfortunately. That top bit has always been a weak spot on GPU blocks ever since they started chopping it off for sli link bridges.

That looks like it would require extra bends and too much work

...possibly, but it really depends how your system / cooling is set up. In my current build (Spoiler), it would have worked great and reduce the number of bends

Spoiler!

I own some Corsair things
900D
220t
2 k70 keyboards
2 pro mice
Ax1200i
Xg7
RGB eco system in the xg7 build.

Zottys response is 100% inappropriate.

Corsair, you're ******* up by not behaving as the premium brand you try to present yourselves to be.

I gave you a chance going with the XG7 instead of an kyrosgraphics next on my 1080ti. It works great, and I don't have leak issues, but your response will limit future purchases.

A 1000D was in the near future to replace the 900d... Will be going phanteks now.

Don't be snarky ****s when the consumer base is largely made up of enthusiasts with deep pockets who like being catered to. This was a chance to shine and you ****ed it.

Put a leash on Zotty.

First thought was iPhone bendgate... kinda stupid way to carry phone that can make it bend if you sit on it...

Same here... Looking for a hole... Also aint that strange that 2 out od 3 videos are made by two most clickbaity morons from "IT" part of YouTube?

EK seem to have done that, but, then again, they've gone through QC issues of their own (and, at times, also mismanaged the criticism).

With that in mind, that Corsair rep/support sounds incompetent. You need some humility and ability to manage situations emotionally intelligently if you want to represent a big corporation, and that's not what they've done.
So you are telling me that i should buy a sports type of a tyre set and try to do offroad, than complain it's underdesigned? Only in murrica people have to pet idiots like jay.

I agree with @tcclaviger re. Zotty's response...no matter what the technical arguments are / aren't, he made it much worse for Corsair's business . Also, no matter what I (or anyone else) think/s about Linus in general, the relevant Linus vid posted up front was the more convincing for me as he did nothing too extreme.

...I do in fact think that leaving out the third (center) screw / bolt can certainly contribute to a technical weakness. With only two on either side, you have pressure on only one side of each of the two o-rings...but with a third (center) one, the o-rings are secured on both sides, in addition to more overall rigidity of that mount. In fact, all the GPU blocks I own by various manufacturers (some for 8 yrs plus), have three screws @ that mount instead of two.

Oh yeah, that would be great for a build like that one.

I like the serial GPU plumbing you got going on there.

I'm not telling you anything. Meanwhile, though, EK got some nice publicity. Jay's big enough that Corsair probably lost more than anyone.

But if your point is that they're in the right, well... I hope being right trades well.

if you watch linus video, he wasn't even trying to test for it and he got the same leak when he was trying to pull the tube up gently to attached his cpu tube that was slightly short. he had to go back up into his attic to find a longer tube to use. he wasn't even doing anything near the pressure that jaw was doing. the corsair block is clearly designed for absolutely no extra pressure pulling on the fitting at all.
but you can sit there and mock america like a stereotypical, smug european.
