think there is any posibility that there could be a leak?


edit: does the Corsair H100i or H100 have better cooling results then the H80? and do they cool better then top of the line air coolers?


and if these all in one water coolers are significantly better then top of the line air coolers then the only thing that bothers me is the risk of a leak, that scares me the most.

no they are not better than a top of the range air cooled heatsink, on a par i'd say, but a lot quieter usually, yes with anything to do with liquids there's a chance of leaks occuring but to be honest i'd put the risk as very low to non existant.


i run a custom built water cooled loop without having any leaks ever in over 3 years, and my daughters pc has a h50 installed again without having any leaks ever in the 2 plus years it's been up and running, i'd guess the first thing that's going to fail will be the pump long before it starts leaking.

im thinking of going SSD for my OS drive

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820167121 this is my choice


i do have some concerns, planned on installing the OS and Antivirus and AntiSpyware software to SSD and games and other stuff to a Raptor i have.


will running antivirus and anti spyware programs be bad for the SSD?

alright now thats settled and is my new choice thanks CB :mrgreen:


any important information i should know about the SSD? i already know defragging is not good so i wont do that. but will virus scans and spyware scans be bad for it as well?


should i put the paging file on a seperate drive? i have a laptop HDD lying around if i need to use it just for the paging file.


and whatever i download from the web i can set to go to my Raptor drive ill be using for gaming
