Iʻve had the Corsair H80 (watercooling system) for about 3-4 months now and a few nights ago, i installed a fan on the ceiling part of my USP 100 case. I went to put the H80 back in and it ran like normal. I shut my computer off then hooked up everything (like my 2 other monitors, headset, etc). When I started it up again, the H80 ran for 4-5 seconds then shut off. So then i restarted my computer and then a poof of smoke came out of the block part of the cooler. I also saw an orange spark under the light that indicates high speed for the fans. Im guessing itʻs dead now. I tried to contact Corsair about it but they didnt give me a reply. Has anyone else experienced this?
oh thats probably it then. I bought it from Amazon but the it was by Corsair. hmmm. I was just wondering if anybody else experienced this problem. Amazon allowed me to return it so I still need to get a box. I ordered the Antec 620, which will be my new cooling system. Hopefully it will do the same job.
Well, I consider overclocking my AMD ii X4 955BE from 3.2 to 4.1 is slightly heavy? Im starting to doubt the 620. I think I should have went with the 920 only because it is similar to the H80. The H80 never went passed 47 C and that was on full load. Ill have to reset my clocking speed once i get the 620 then from there, start overclocking and see what I get.
mcnumpty, ive been doing a lot of extra research on the 620 and i have this feeling that my chip will go over the 50 C mark. Im not a fan of that.
There was a review on youtube about the 620 and the max load temp was 80 C!!!!!! and the user was comfortable with that!! thats crazy! i dont want my chip going over 50 C. If it does, i think im going to either buy another H80 or possible the 920. I really liked the H80. That only problem with it was the fans being loud but i didnt care much because I always had my headset on.
