Fan header broke off during install! Scary indicator of quality...

Summary: Just received this closed-loop liquid cooling system this afternoon to use in my new gaming rig. Got everything installed, and went to go plug the Y-connector for the fans into the top of the unit. It felt like it wasn't seating straight-on so I went to pull it out, and after a gentle tug, the entire left fan header connector popped out, stuck on the wire! What in the world?!
pump failed within two months, corsair link shows pump working fine. don't trust your expensive computer to this junk.

Summary: a few months ago, as i was deciding what kind of specs i wanted in my new system, i got around to deciding if i'd be building my own water cooling loop as i'd done on my previous two systems, or purchasing a product like the h100i. of course, i still have my old w/c gear, which btw has run flawlessly for the last three years, but i figured what the hell, i just have to cool the cpu, and these pre-built systems are nice and compact, perfect fit for my nice new htpc case.
Summary: Study up on your mobo before ordering, make sure you have a proper fan splitter. Spend hours verifying if Corsair Link will actually work with your motherboard/chipset. DO NOT trust Corsair's compatibility claims.
Pros: Cools great! I've not been able to get my processor above 38C, even with the fans on low. Easy to install, especially since my CPU is AMD FM2. The fans get the job done at 50% speed. (see cons)
Cons: Fans are really loud a full RPM. I mean like you have to raise you voice to talk over them loud. The 4-pin PWM fan splitters included are JUNK. On first start fans did not spin up. Luckily I had a nice quality aftermarket splitter that I had bought for my side panel fans, or I would have had to wait, or worse, install the OEM cooler until I got a real splitter. This is a rediculous issue to have on a product that is touted as being of superior quality. Now I just have...
Summary: I needed this for my cpu, what i got was a bag full of liquid and a bubbling rubber hose that was leaking when i open it. My God the rumor was true that it leaks and to my horror i wasnt gonna install this above my motherboard with the gear i got. Sorry Corsair but u did me wrong again. I got a Noctua 6 instead andits running good for now. Now im gonnna give Corsair another chance on those speakers but if they screw me again (pardon my french, wee wee).
Summary: I've always loved Corsair products, but this cooler disappointed me. Looks like it's time to RMA. I will be trying one more so hopefully I have better luck with the next one and will update when I have received it.
Pros: Installation was fairly easy, although the included instructions were lacking.
Summary: Luckily I had sense enough to jump right in to my CPU temp. Temperature kept rising, up.. up... up. checked wiring, replace sata cable, changed ports on PSU, changed thermal paste, checked fit with CPU, USB connector, nope dead. Frustrating after a painstaking install. Reinstalled stock cooler, waiting for replacement. Amazon was great, they made the exchange painless!
Summary: putting new system together unit just sitting on the table. The hose blew off the the cpu cooler side! The coolant went every where. 12 feet to my right, hitting my daughter in another room, the ceiling took some, and 10 feet to my left also got wet. Not to mention my new biuld also received a bath!
Summary: Packaging for this unit was in great shape, no damage and the unit was well packed. There is a plastic covering the copper block upon opening. I took this off to find coolant around the plastic edges. The pump housing is attached to the heatsink by 8 - 10 screws. One of these has been wet long enough to corrode. The rest of the unit was in good shape. I hope i'll be able to get a replacement quickly in better shape. Big delay on a build i've been waiting on. No fun!
Summary: Fick hem en där pumpen verkar trasig då den ej kyler ett dugg. Har testat om-monterat den flera gånger men ingen lycka. Den blinkar bara rött och fläktarna går på max. Ren besvikelse. Går nog tillbaks till gamla beprövade kylflänsar med fläktar... Även fläktarna som medföljer denna är av usel kvalité.
