    Accidentally knocked a couple wires loose (I think) off of my water cooler identical to this, and now I can’t seem to figure out where my lead cables from the cooler plug in. I know where the fan and the usb one plug in because ones marked and one is simple. I don’t know if these cables NEED to be plugged in but I am under the impression that they do. Please if anybody could help me figure this out ? I am desperate noob lol

    I was always scared of water cooling cuz of those pumps and shit leaking over expensive hardware, but this seems easy enough

    Should you tighten the cooling block screws as tight as they can go? I have heard if you over tighten them, you can damage the MB. My Screws never seem to fully tighten and I am concerned about over tightening. I have an AMD FX8150 & Sabertooth 990FX & antec h20 620 cooling system. I know it is old, but I built it years ago, sat in storage now I am bringing it back to life. Thanks

    My fans on my h100i are constantly spinning up and down, from quiet to REALLY loud. Also in Corsair link it shows 0 rpm for the fans.

    What is the point of installing the fans on the bottom? Aren't you just blowing hot air from the radiator into the case?

    When I'm looking at parts:
    Corsair psu: Well it's expensive but if it dies it takes everything with it so okay I'll go with quality.
    Corsair ram: Well it's cheap but the clock and latency are good… wait what.
    Corsair cooler: Well it's cheap but if it dies only the fan goes with it.
    Corsair fans: Holy christmas what is this, a noctua rebrand? I'm not made of money! Might as well use 12g CO2 cartridges.
    Corsair SSD's: Okay seriously guys you get everything else right HOW DOES THIS COST SO MUCH?!
