Well, since i am waiting for an RMA on my H100 and it's laying next to me;

1: The hoses are 300 mm long
2: Yes, it's a closed system so you can mount it any way you'd like

Hej, no problem :)

Well, even though mine died after 6 months i will not hesitate putting the replacement back in.

I have not experienced any noise problems other people have talked about, everything have worked perfectly and quietly since the day I installed it. Until the pump suddenly decided it had enough. I realize though that there are or have been some issues. I do believe that Corsair is one the most serious companies out there that will take care of things if they go wrong which simply cannot be said about several others. If you want to go watercooling "light" which this system is, i could not´recommend any other that Corsair.

  • Can someone tell me if the 8 screw-holes in the radiator go all the way through? Is it possible to use a longer screw (or bolt) and make it go all the way through to the other side?
  • And what's the diameter of the screws, used to connect the fans to the radiator?

I need to know before buying, because I may have to improvise a way to mount it into my old case. I don't want a new case, the current one has good ventilation and it looks good.

The screws for connecting the fans and radiator to each other and to PC case that are provided with any of the even numbered H-series coolers are 6-32, 1.25" screws. The threaded portion really does not extend through the radiator, that is on a tab on each of the four corners and two sides of the radiator, for eight total. The area behind the threaded tabs does have the very thin heat dissipating fins that will obstruct a screw if it was put completely through the screw holes in the rad. But they contain no fluid, and are easily pushed aside with a toothpick or very small screwdriver. That will not cause a leak or compromise the cooling efficiency. I have done that on two H60's, with zero ill effects.

I needed custom length screws for my application of the H60's, so I bought extra long screws of 6-32 threads and size, and cut them to length with a hack saw. I've never threaded a screw through two aligned threaded holes on one of these radiators, but I'm certain it would work. It would help to move the thin fins away from the path of the screw before attempting to thread it through both holes.

If passing a screw through the threaded holes in the rad is all you need to do to allow mounting the radiator, you should be fine.

GUYS IF H100 LEAKS ON MOBO, PROXY OR PSU WILL CORSAIR DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT?

I mean its their responsibility to make the water cooling to be safe and not leak, right?

I got paranoid after watching this video & reading forums

Yes, they will.

I have seen examples whith leakage also breaking mobo, gpu's and psu and Corsair have replaced all of it.

I would assume though that you will need to ship everything to Corsair and they make an assessment on what happened and what to do.

Luckily it is a very very small amount that leaks.

It's not guaranteed - it's on a case by case basis.

its extremely rare case that it leaks right?

So is it worth the risk, for a pc worth nearly $3000

You can (some say should) always test any liquid cooling system components outside the box (prior to installation, obviously) - the length of testing time is up to you - a few hours, overnight, 48 hrs, ect... ...
... place it on a type of material that will show any liquid very obviously, & power the unit on ...
... after testing, wipe the complete unit; especially any & all connection points - look for visible signs of any liquid on the material ...
"Most" leaks; if any; will show themselves during this pre-installation testing ...

However - a totally sealed cooling system should not leak by design ...
... as that's the concept of a "sealed" system - "zero maintenance / zero leakage worries" - right ?? ...

You don't show your specs but, if you mount the radiator assembly USAdystopia Style (against the hdd cages) you can "minimize" the damage from an unlikey leak.

A cooling system leak can occur from anywhere in the system ...
... the waterblock(s), any of the fittings, hose connections (either side), radiator, pump, reservoir, hoses, ect ...
There's a couple of good reasons those hose grommets are on the rear panel of most cases ...
... although, that concept doesn't really work for the H100.

But again, with a "factory sealed" system - the risk should be extremely minimal, & if it was to leak ...
... well, then that's on the "factory" & their QC - at least, I would imagine so in "most" cases.
There's very little "end user" involvement in the H100 system - you/we/I are totally trusting that the "factory" did it right ...

Any water cooling system has risks, that is a given. No one can make the decision about whether or not it's worth it except you. How can anyone here guarantee anything about one of the H-series coolers leaking or not.

The number of complaints about leaks in this forum is very, very small, I can think of two apparent cases in about a year that I have been active in this forum. We also don't know how those units were installed or treated. That is not a comment about those people, just a reality.

IMO, if you are at all skeptical about water coolers, don't use one.

...OR put it in a place that is unlikely to affect the components in your build.
