Corsair H115i lifespan

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've had a Corsair H115i in use for 3 years now.  System has been on 24/7 and has seen a lot of gaming and even long periods of crypto mining.  I have replaced the thermal paste, cleaned the radiator but the coolant readings at the pump have been creeping up lately causing the fans to ramp up.  No leaks, but I sounds like bubbles in the system like with my custom loop is freshly filled and still has air trapped.  Is this a sign that the AIO is needing replaced? Thinking of going with a mid-range air cooler.  Something around the $50 price point.

All of our Hydro Series pumps are rated to last at least the length of the 5 year warranty.  Try removing the pump, gently shaking it, then run it with the pump logo facing the ceiling for about 8 hours with the radiator elevated higher than the pump.  You might have some trapped air bubbles in the system.  If you still run into issues, we can have the pump replaced through an RMA on our support site.

Are you suggesting running the pump with the system on, or hooking it up to an external USB source and running it at room temperature?
