I understand where you're coming from, but that's a concern we try to ameliorate here, probably because all we sell is liquid cooling. ;)

That's why we warrant our liquid coolers specifically against leaking and damaging your other components. So if on the extremely off chance they do leak inside your system, you can send us the stuff they damaged and we'll typically replace it.

FWIW, I've had a leak or two early in the lives of my custom loops, during assembly. You always expect this massive arterial spray of coolant just shooting out and causing sparks and fire and carnage and death and kittens crying, etc. But the coolant in a custom loop isn't under pressure; it's usually just a small, BS leak that's typically pretty easy to clean.

Since AIOs are assembled and tested at the factory, the one time they would develop a leak is when there's an engineer on hand to fix it. So while a couple of coolers in the wild will develop a leak - that's just the nature of any manufactured product - it's really not something to worry about.

That is good to know. I didn't know Corsair would cover any other parts damaged in case of a leak. I typically benchmark with battlefield 4 and my I7-4770k runs ~72c at heavy loads overclocked @ 4.5 with my current Zalman cooler. How much benefit would I see in temps with a H110i GT or H80i GT? Thanks

Honestly, you might get another couple of degrees, but nothing that will really get you any more headroom where overclocking is concerned. The i7-4770K is limited in thermal conductivity and hits a heat wall pretty fast regardless of what cooler you put on it.
