I've just taken delivery of parts for a new PC I'm building, and while unboxing everything I noticed some dents on the radiator of the Corsair Hydro H80i. 



I've never used a watercooling kit before, so I don't know whether this is normal or whether it warrants an RMA.  Will these dents affect the performance of the radiator in any significant way?  Should I RMA it, or will it be fine?

Not in a significant way, no. It will be fine.

Effect on performance is not really the issue. Definitely raise it with the supplier. They may want to give you a new one anyway. This unit may have been knocked about and if you have a problem down the track...
