Default Corsair Hydro Series H110i GT

Hello, I'm a bit affraid about Corsair Hydro Series H110i GT, what if it leakes and some of this water come on my pc components? It's dangerous or it's distilled water and it can't make any short circuit. I naver had any WC so i have to ask for it.

The issue with the H110i GT was specific to that model and the very cold North American Winter last year. Packages were exposed to sub-zero temperatures during shipping. The freeze-thaw cycle on the product led to leaks on some units. That should not be an issue for you at this time. Any liquid inside your case is potentially destructive, whether it is distilled water or something else. Corsair handles damage from coolers on a case by case basis, but leaks are not common.

Agreed,water cooling isn't for everyone
but the benefit far out weighs the risks
Some hear about one failure in a thousand and get worried but there's failures with every product......

There is no lottery involved. Try to avoid leaving your PC outside in sub-zero winter conditions and don't take it for high altitude rides in a non-pressurized compartment. However, as wytnyt pointed out, water cooling isn't for everyone... at least until we get a handle on a non-conductive liquid that still conducts heat energy.

We take risks in every aspect of our lives,drive on the interstate with hundreds of others and any one of them can do a suicide dance with us ,we hear about tainted beef but we still eat it
bottom line everything has its risks...

I understand but most any component can cause catastrophic damage such as a drive shorting out or a Psu burning up or one of dozens of wires rubbing causing a short and any of these can cause a total loss.
I have hydros in all my builds,my newest is a custom cooling build with over 8k invested that's way more prone to leaking than a hydro but I wouldn't have it any other way.
Waters advantages are well worth the risk and the failure rate is quite low overall...
I can say this if you go with a hydro,you'll never go back to air...

The water used in these hydro's isn't totally conductive,Ive seen where components get wet but were not damaged.,and its unlikely every component would get damaged in a worse case scenario .another way to look at it is if you did get a leak say 2 years down the road,the hydro is warranted and by that time components are due for upgrading anyway.
I have half a dozen computers now but when I got my first hydro in 2012 I only had one and I too was very nervous getting a hydro but as stated Ill never go back to air regardless...
Take a look at my build in my sig,,much more risk of a leak than with a hydro

That's bad this water should be 0% conductive to protect other components from the worst scenario
And how i can protect my pc from leak? After thinking air cooling can break mobo and fall Down ruin gpu and psu...

water cant be completely non conductive,there's other liquids that are but none dissipates as good as water...
