Corsair H60 cooler seems to be clogged

Hi there, I have a Corsair H60 cooler on an i7-930 and temps were fine around 35-40 C idle. Recently over the break the computer was off for 2 weeks and now the temps are at 80 C idle! I tried to figure out why, maybe the thermal paste, who knows. I moved the loops around and bent them and the temperature instantly dropped down to the 60s. With even more wiggling I got it down to 55 C but that was the lowest. I left it alone overnight and now the temps are once again at 80 C.

Is there anything I can do to clear them? Or is it just time to RMA the thing?

    time to Rma it. it sounds like the pump has gone. the units are sealed but they still suffer air bubbles so its possible 1 could cause a pump to burn out.
    as for blocked, they shouldn't as they should use sterile pure water or sterile pure whatever they use to fill them.

    Thanks Hexit, you're probably right. I will RMA this sucker away. It's still under warranty so why not.
  3. Just did an express RMA. Won't mess with it anymore, I don't want it to burst. Thanks for your help.
  4. Yeah, express RMA is the way to go. Pump problems aren't unheard of with really any brand of closed loop coolers. If you have any other problems either comment on your ticket or send an email to ramguy@corsair.com and we'll clean it up for you as soon as possible.

    Hey a1r, thanks for your reply. I am glad I did the express so I can just swap it out and send it back. I will let you know how it goes.
