    Great Job Paul

    Just a note about the RMA to corsair, My pump showed it was working great but the temps still went up (and back to normal at times). Think it was air in the system as when I tapped the hot pipe the temps went back down but will climb again soon after. Had to do that a few time a day until I decided to RMA my AIO.
    Thanks Worf .

    You reckon it's best just to go ahead with the RMA anyway? I don't know if Corsair test these things or if they can determine whether it's faulty or not. I suspect they just send replacements out without much trouble.

    Thanks Doug . It was a little scary doing it but everything went according to plan and it was much easier than I thought in the end.
    Yeah, der8auer has made delidding easier than loosening a girls bra(just not so potentially dangerous).

    Think they only check that you have sent everything that came in the box back. If you feel that all is now OK then I would not bother but if you are unsure or worried then do.

    It's playing on my mind. I might just go for it.

    Go for it. Whether something's wrong with yours or not, you'll get a new cooler.
