Corsair has issued a recall notice to customers as well as retailers for their Hydro Series H100i RGB Platinum SE all-in-one liquid CPU coolers. Corsair is saying that coolers belonging to a specific manufacturing lot show signs of faulty seals, which may cause the coolant to leak between the tubes and sleeves.
“We discovered that less than 1% of Hydro Series H100i RGB PLATINUM SE coolers sold to date are leaking small amounts of coolant into the hose sleeving. These leaks are easy to spot, as the sleeving is white, and coolant is bright green,” the notice reads.
If you have a Corsair H100i RGB Platinum SE check the 12-digit serial number, digits 5-8 are the manufacturing lot. If the lot number matches “1852” it belongs to the bad lot. If you happen to have one of these coolers Corsair will be giving free replacements, including shipping.
