Question WC failure

OK guys just oredered my Coolit Domino, I wonder to know if any of you have already had failure with Water cooling like broken tube or liquid loose in the case leading to short of the mobo or any other pieces. I know that coolit product are Factory sealed wich reduce to the max the case of leaking water ( well any liquid it is ). well...it could be interesting to short everyting my job could help me get brand new from RMA haha:)

Thx

Just so you know, if you have a leak and it kills all your components, that's usually not covered by any warranties. So don't purposely go have a 'leak' just to RMA everything.

Can't imagine how much I dislike the mentality behind something like this. At any rate, the chances of a failure on CoolIT unit is fairly low, they are buttoned up very tightly.

Fail. Again.

There's some serious ethical issues surrounding that kind of attitude. There's a whole thread at XtremeSystems about ethics with RMA'ing hardware when it's clearly your fault that it died. Typically if you break something, you should cut your losses and accept that you made a mistake (be it a costly one or not) and it wasn't the manufacturer's fault.
