H100i RMAed 3 times.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Has anyone else had issues with Corsair H100i lasting, every year or so it seems to just give up.


Bought it April 2014.

1st RMA was September 2014 because the pump had packed in.

2nd RMA August 2015 fan header on the pump had failed. - Replacement H105

3rd RMA June 2017 - pump failure. Replacement H100GTX


All I know is that when my warranty runs out i'm going to try another brand out.


Anyone else had problems with this or am I unlucky?

This is why I'll never buy an AIO or use water cooling.  I'm super paranoid about my hardware getting damaged.  Just the idea that it could leak freaks me out.

Warranty doesn't restart by every RMA? It should...

i5 6600k and GTX 1070 but I play 1600-900. 1440p BABY!

Still, don't put too much faith in my buying decisions. xD

Good job the R7 1700 came with a stock cooler, I was hyped when my AM4 bracket came.


It cooled it pretty well for like 2 weeks.


I have 3 AIO coolers in my case now, so Id have to guess which one leaked never had one leak so far and its usually covered.

Sorry to hear that, that's very unfortunate to have 3 coolers to fail on you within the 3 year period. That's really rare. 


Send me your last ticket # and I'll make sure that we take care of that for you.

That's really disappointing. I have the Corsair H100i v2 and have noticed that at times the pump will make a weird sound... It sounds like an old hard drive trying to spin up but getting caught by the headers. This happens two to three times every hour. I don't know if this is normal, but in your case I don't even know what to think. Sounds like someone might have dropped it... *Stares at Linus*
