    Arghh, another reason to choose air cooling! Good luck, hope they can fix it free of charge.

    I wish I were able to get the cooling from my air coolers but it just wasn't enough to get my OC.

    I'm already annoyed by Corsair, two days to get a reply from the ticket I submitted, I may order one from EVGA, the support would be better and I could keep whatever RMA part as a spare. I wish my Hyper 212 wasn't in a HTPC, I could toss it in.

    You could probably do it with a Noctua NH-D14 or NH-D15 - I've got an NH-D14 for my 4.7Ghz 1.4V 6700K.

    How long did you have the aio before it failed. I have a nzxt kraken x62 and run it at 100 percent pump because gamers nexus said to. I wonder if that's bad for the life span.

    @DukeCLR sorry to hear about your pump failure bro. I have the same h100i v2 but mine has been flawlessand is just a week shy of a full year of service. My previous Corsair h55 was also a decent cooler and never had any issues with it either in its 2 years.

    Let us know how it works out with the RMA support.

    What were you guys able to get on your overclocks. I was able to get 4.8 with 1.30v. Is that good or bad. I didn't really try to go any higher than that.

    4.8 with 1.30v (6700K) is good.

    At first they said it would be two days, I was leaving for the crash pad so I ordered an EVGA 280 CLC, by the time I got to the pad I had a reply form corsair, they offered to send one right away with a hold on a CC or just send the other then they will replace it. I'll use the EVGA one as I think it will be quieter and I'll keep the Corsair as a spare.

    I have hundreds of hours gaming at 5.0 with 1.35.
