How long do these things last?

It'd probably cost more to service it than to just buy a new one, especially with the consideration that it could possibly be serviced incorrectly potentially damaging it more or other hardware.

So this is my first PC with liquid cooling it, I have a Corsair H100i v2. This thing has served me great and its about 3 years old. I just wanna know, do these things have like a set lifespan? I know water slowly evaporates via micropores, how much life does it have left? Is it worth it to service it after so long or is it a case of, once its dead its dead by a new one?

They have a 5 year warranty and will probably last longer than that.  I would recommend replacing it before your warranty runs out though.  Just in case.

~5 years.

Though some have been known to fail earlier.

 

They do have a finite life unfortunately. its why generally its best to stick with a top end air coolers rather than get an AIO, unless u know u need something a little better than air performance wise, in which case u grab a 360mm rad AIO. The more popular 240mm AIO's , and smaller, are really not worth it performance and cost wise.
