The guy is a muppet, why do people even bother to mention him? He was yanking on the tube because it was too short and causing the card to cause pressure on the pci-e slot.

He is a straight up moron.

Think of all the noobtubers out there though, with the 35" run of 1\2x3\4x tube pulling on that terminal, bound to happen because we aren't all even OCN members.

Igor already informed Corsair of their flaw in 2019!

Quote:
Unfortunately, the terminal was a bit weak. If you put it on it, use very rigid hoses and then also slightly edge them (but only then), then there can be a bending of the terminal foot and thus also slight leaks. With angles, normal hose or hard tubes, however, you can give a calm warning. But it is a possible source of error that the manufacturer was able to reproduce according to my indications and wants to replace with a new injection molding terminal.

...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.
Agree!

Corsair probably wanted to save cost using 2 screws closer together.
But all other blocks have been using 3 or more, i think these vendors are more experienced and know better not to save here.

Corsair rep response was just the kick to our nuts. Makes the situation worse to accuse YT of fishing for views.

The rep was pointing out that Major w/e channel is phishing for views. Which he clearly is, he's putting force on it to make it leak just like Jay did but at least Jay explained it. Just like Linus explained his tubing he was planning to use was too short causing the terminal to leak.

If it's a flaw it would of leaked without his hand on the terminal cover. They can improve their design by adding the third screw.

It is a flaw because a simple tug during installation caused the leak.

Igorlab reported to Corsair last year and they acknowledged it and was supposed to retool a fix. Probably they forgot!

And no Major is better than to phish for views. Oh please. Stop speaking up for corporate mistakes, which is pretty clear in this case.

Did you watch Jay's or Linus's video? That's not just a simple tug.

And i will. Tell me, how many times do you pull the tube or pipe when your loop is full od liquid? Once, to drain it. 2nd thing. From Corsair reaction i can tell you already that those videos is straight up fishing for views. Normal guy would call Corsair first and inform them about it. They got this info before as i can see, maybe 2nd call would change their point ov view and made them to use more screws to fix working thing... Whatever. But those half celebs are fishing for views. They havent called Corsair first (can easly assume that by the rwaction od Corsair guy) as they should and imo, Corsair should sue them for bad and intentional PR.

And tell me how i cannot look at USA as motherland of stupidity when you have people like this

End users are often idiots; engineers kind of have to account for this. Even if the design works 100% flawlessly in the clean white design room, once it reaches the hands of some rando that can barely read but has loads of cash to drop you can bet they will find a way to mess it all up.

The Iphone6+ could bend much more easily than its contemporaries. Did it only effect some people, people who used their phones in ways Apple hadn't considered "proper use"? Sure. It was still a problem and one the Iphone6s+ was adjusted to alleviate.
That's just phones. If you want to look at "dangerous" things look at how modern firearms are designed. Features and ergonomic decisions that protect users without them even knowing. For example, everyone knows you shouldn't drop a loaded gun, it still happens and good guns designed within the last 100 years have nearly all been designed(or later modified) with firing pin blocks for just such an occasion.

People like whom? The Winnebago driver that doesn't exist, the 5 year old girl that got her fingers chopped of by a poorly maintained machine, or the greedy *expletive* that formed a shell company to falsify maintenance reports? Explain with simple words please, I'm an American.

The guy was probably already protected several times in his lifetime by overengineering, but he's sitting here defending a company (which he can't even publicly trade).
