I was flushing them with the tile off to get some of the X1 out, plan on opening them up since the CPU block appeared questionable. Good thing I have other CPU blocks at my disposal

Because OCN changed a lot. Most of the manufacturer forums disappeared.

Ok well I'm pissed at what I found on my BitsPower monoblock set, definitely shooting an email over to them on this crap. As I used Mayhems X1 and flushed the hell out of the rads prior to using with X1.
So here are my findings on the blocks and why I'm pissed:
CPU Block

South block components (thanks to a crappy coating job I noticed the coat was bubbling up which is a sign of moisture breach/corrosion)



I have one more block to inspect but after this I'm done with BitsPower's products

I'm just glad I still have my Aquacomputers block from an 1150 build that looks like it will match up mounting on my 2011-v3, so now to install the stock coolers and call it a day for now unless I can find a steal on some mobo blocks

You definitely not the first one, I also have this issue (http://www.overclock.net/t/584302/ocn-water-cooling-club-and-picture-gallery/96710#post_25049835), I RMA the blocks & they send me the new replacement, this time I only use the VRM & PCH blocks, CPU block I change to EK Supremacy EVO block, unfortunately the VRM block still facing the same issue since only used for couple of weeks, in future I will never buy any BP block.

Is it a known issue with bp blocks?

Daaaaaaauym, the moment when you can ditch sponsors like Bitspower, then you know you are a well-known/established elite-modder in the modding-scene biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif


But I completely agree with you! I only use the products I really like! And when it comes to sponsors, which I do have now for my second project, I only chose products I personally REALLY like and without questions would pay for myself if I wouldn't be sponsored with them. So I make clear with the companies I am working with that I will use other brands and products I may prefer over theirs. I know this could be a big issue with some companies, but you have to meet somewhere in the middle I guess.


And Congrats for the success in the Taiwan! smile.gif Thumbs up buddy thumb.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif

i see that bits is still on the low side in terms of quality. Friend of mine had bp rampage 2 block. Cooling performance was crap, so he took it aprat. What he found is just a fluid passage, no fins or anything else to expand the heat transfering area. The moment he saw that, he just tossed it to trash bin.
