Hello Guys,
I want to buy the H100 but i heard that it has leaked sometimes with people, is there anyway i can make sure that it does not leak? like if i cover the tubes with tight plastic bags(the ones you put sandwiches in and tie the ends with napkins (a lot better than it sounds, and nothing will touch the motherboard or other components) that way if it leaks it will go into the plastic bag or the napkins, i don't live in the united states so if it leaks i cant really get in contact with the company and i don't want to build a custom water cooler or buy a huggggeee air cooler and hang it on my motherboard, ty

jump start the power supply and have the h100 connected, wrap the tubes and the heatsink block in paper to see any leaks

i personally have the same cooler and I have installed it without testing for leaks, if it leaks ill contact corsair for a cooler replacement/refund and any other pc parts that has been affected by the leaking fluid (mobo, cpu, video car)

The Hyper 212 Evo would be my suggestion. It isn't huge, and you don't have to worry about ruining your motherboard, cpu, or video card. It is half the price of the H100, if you're buying today. If not it is 1/3.
