H80 came apart :(

I was always afraid of doing a water cooled and my fear became real. I was running the h80 for 2 days with no issues and raved about it. Today, I saw my computer had nothing on the monitor and was on a black screen. I thought maybe video or just windows locked up so I rebooted. I rebooted and nothing came up and figured I better look in the case. I almost shat myself when I saw the heatsink unit split in 2. I am not sure if it messed up my video card or motherboard yet. Check the picks. I sent an rma to Corsair, but I am still verifying if my components work.

Well just tested my video card in my back up box and it is dead. I tried a different video card in my main box and the motherboard will not power on, yet the lights are on. So it might have killed the cpu too. Just great it happens on a Saturday.... WTF!!!

It's very weird that your H80 spontaneously split like that, and your video card died too. Any chance your PC was knocked over by someone (kids, rampaging roommate, your idiot brother or sister, mother or significant other vacuuming.)

 

Your Intel CPU should shut down on it's own if it overheated, so it's probably Ok. Did you remove the H80? If not, that might be why the PC won't start.

 

Your situation is very strange, keep an open mind about the cause and don't jump to conclusions. I'd be interested to know how it goes for you.
