Is my H100i likely to leak?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Doing some upgrades after my mobo died (rip sweet Prince) and I whilst taking the old pc apart I noticed how damaged the tube on my H100i is around the CPU block. It is nearly 3 years old. 

 

Here is a picture of the area

The rest of the connections have similar mini cracks. I could also hear the water moving when I tilted it, something I can't remember hearing when I first installed it, so i *think* it might have lost some liquid, though I an not too sure about that.

I'd replace that. If those joins between the pump and the tubing are damaged like that the tubes could potentially break away from the pump altogether. 3 years sounds about right, that's usually when AIOs start showing problems.

I am not a professional. I am not an expert. I am just a smartass. Don't try and blame me if you break something when acting upon my advice.

Most likely it could be reused, though I'd recommend having it replaced. After three years most likely some of the liquid inside the loop has evaporated which isn't going to let it function very well. AIOs unfortunately can't be reused as much as air coolers, you could refill the loop yourself, but it would be easier and probably safer just to buy a new loop.

not good

these AIOs have 5y warranty, RMA that shit

I'll give it try, I don't see it as worth the risk, especially after just upgrading.
