I've changed my mind from liking the Corsairs, to liking the Swiftech instead. When I eventually come round to replacing my CNPS20LQ that's probably what I'll go for, unless something shinier comes out.

All well and good but do Swiftech do the "if it leaks we replace everything it destroys" that corsair does?

I know they have a low failure rate.. BUT is it worth it?

If Swiftech had a single 120mm push pull configuration,I would buy it right now. I don't have room in my case for a dual fan set up. I'm a "quiet" freak,and that cooler is QUIET. As far as any leakage damage etc.,I believe they would be responsible for any damage a faulty product causes.

Most things have a disclaimer that the company is not liable for any loss or damage resulting from the use of their product.

If any damage resulted from THEIR product being faulty,they would absolutely be responsible. There are myriad consumer protection laws in Canada that ensure a buyer is not responsible for a faulty product that causes the damage. I would sue the pants off of Swiftech,or any other manufacturer selling a product that is faulty. And I would win!

Your kidding right? This is like going out and tinting your windows to 5% then when you get the fine you sue the cops and the store who installed it.

Sorry mate, but thats dilluted thinking.
They have a very good legal disclaimer on most of these products that states when you install it in your system you waive 'ALL' liability of damages caused by said product.
Unless the item has an inherent reproducable flaw that passed CSA or UL inspection, you don't have a leg to stand on.

Thats what I thought ^

It's true with software and the vast majority of hardware. How else would PSU manufacturers stay in business? HDD's failing and losing data? motherboards frying processors, etc etc.
They are well protected that if it wasn't an inherent flaw in the product design that you can do squat.

I dont know about the H90 or H110 (yet...havent opened the boxes and looked for it) but the H55, H60 2.0, H80i and H100i all came with a slip of paper that basically says that if they leak and kill other parts....Corsair will fix or replace (at their discretion) to make things right. I have heard some say that they have changed their liability to $150 max....but since I have never had one leak on me...no idea if that is true or not. Corsair are known for their customer service so I doubt that they would not cover you. A sealed AIO that leaks would be rare...otherwise they would not be selling them generation after generation.

Basically, my understanding is that with sealed all in ones you are buying a ready to use device. IF it leaks it has to be from a mfg'er defect (ie final builder is at fault). Thus they have to cover you under law (they can limit their liability, but cant void it entirely. this is why and how hdd and ssd can get away with not covering data on the drives, just the drive itself...but IF it takes out another part as it dies you could force the issue...but that doesnt happen all that often). After markert custom loops...do not have such liability as you are buying the separate parts (even in kit form) and are responsible for the build...thus YOU are the final builder and responsible for damages.
