Ostrog is a nice case, too bad it only comes with one fan and this sale is meh...
Cooler on the other hand is rather good. Nice reviews on Newegg ($47 AR there) and rebate is actually $20 which makes price AR at Frys $35 with FS. Maybe I will get one

Never heard of that brand for water coolers. You should really invest in a known brand if you don't want water leaking. Corsair is the best, you pay more, but they cover your parts in case of a leak.

FTR, the Enermax Ostrog Pink was $19.99 AR at Fry's earlier this year, if you're trying to go bargain-basement on your build. Got one sitting next to me. Definitely worth the money, but wish it had thumb-screws for the side-panels. Great powder-coating on the interior.

The pump is hard plastic, you can't turn off the white LED, which is not too bright. But sure to check if it fits with the rest of your build.

Even though Corsair does pay for the damage, let's say for example right now the AIO leaks all over a GTX 980ti that you bought for full price lil after launch. They will only repay you for the current price of the card now, not the retail price you paid for. Plus, you have to pay shipping to send the damaged items to them. The whole process takes like about 2 weeks or more to settle everything. Corsair's AIOs are quite likely to leak too, possibly the same chance as this Enermax cooler. Or maybe its just the H80 and H80i lol. Go for a nice dual tower air cooler like NH-D14 or PH-TC14PE if you wanna be on the safer side and have great performance.

If you are ever curious who the OEMs are: http://www.gamersnexus.net/guides...olers-oems

CoolIT designs are nice, but I still wouldn't trust them after what happened with their retail market water cooler. Apal(ling?)tek seems like a newer company.

I still have my giant NH-D14 for the reasons you mentioned Cool Better safe than sorry.

Thanks for the info, didn't realize seems like people have had problems with CoolIT. I'm a little hesistant now to use my H80 GT...

However I will say I still think that is really good of Corsair--paying for current market value is really quite reasonable, imo. If not, think of all the people purposefully abusing that 1 month before the warranty ends, getting full price on desktop parts (a lot of which drops in value and can be obsolete quickly). There's definitely going to be unscrupulous people out there, so I think this is pretty fair, especially when they could really just cover the cost of the cooler.

I searched and found a thread about a CoolIT cooler leak (here [bit-tech.net] in case anyone is interested). OP posted how they thought it was smart cutting out the middle-man--well this is exactly what you "save" (aka lose out) by cutting out the middle man (Corsair). That extra money goes to things like customer service departments, warranty, etc that people don't usually realize.

Having issues with my Lepa AC 240 currently. Popped in my old Corsiar H55 and it's back to normal. So I'd be much less cautious about going with Corsair than some cheapo Chinese brand.

Water coolers seem risky. I'd prefer sticking with heatpipe and traditional aircooled designs.

Corsair doesn't even make a majority of their own products.

For the Record I own a Zalman water cooler, so I'm a huge hypocrite, a lot of Zalman stuff sucks. Just saying, water is scary. I'm probably never going to do water cooling again, for the same price you can get nearly the same performance with a decent air cooler.
