Corsair cool faulty water block


Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a new corsair cool water cooling kit from http://www.frozencpu.com


When i began installing the kit. i took my time and finished fairly simply, i followed the instructions to the T


When i fired up the system i was pleased to see everything was working and there was no leaks at the time.


About 20 minutes later i checked the system again for kinks and leaks.. there was none.


then about an hour after that while i was playing a game i recieved the blue screen of death.


I imediatly thought to power off the cpu and look at the water cooling loop.. i assumed i had a leak and i was right. there was water everywhere in my case.. on the floor and on my 2 gpu cards.. i proceded to try and find the source of the leak. all the fittings i had secured were tight as could be.. nice and dry. i then saw some water dripping off my water block. and i found that a faulty cpu block had been the source of the leak.. the copper contact of the cpu block had a small hole in it. and had been the source of the massive amount of water...


I was wondering what to do here... becuase the accident was not my fault.. but the result of poor construction of the block, so i need to know how to go about requesting that first my cpu block be replaced as promply as possible.


And if i have damaged components is corsair responsable for replacing them aswell?


Because that would be messed up if they just said i was S.O.L


if i could get some tips on how to report this and get it fixed as soon as possible that would be great.


even after this accident i look forward to using the corsair cool system.. becuase had it not been for the faulty cpu block i would have been extremly happy with this product.

i did the problem report. havent recieved a reply yet though.. if somone knows could they tell me if corsair will replace my damaged hardware from this accident though. because if they dont i need to start buying all new stuff :(


at the moment i am assuming they will though. because i did not read any fine print about them not being responsable for a faulty product.


and can somone tell me the exact odds of having a faulty waterblock so i can know exactly how poor my luck is :)

it has now been about 2 weeks since i emailed corsair about there faulty product... i have received no responce.


If anyone is thinking about purchasing the watercooling kit from corsair i urge you to instead spend a bit extra money and go with a danger den kit.


I had to purchase a new water block because corsair did not email me back. i went to danger den and they had me an awsome one extremly quick.


I have already had to replace the faulty cpu block from the damn corsair kit. and soon i will have to replace the pump because its goin out also. no matter what from now on out its danger den parts for me.. and i recomend all others do the same
