Thanks again George!
This is a very valid point. Maybe a version with longer tubing? For extra large cases and a version with less tubing for more compact cases like my 350D?
The wait for release is literally killing me... I believe the current estimated release date (according to George) is end of August or early September. We are still a few weeks out from a public release... We should be able to hopefully see some official reviews of test units in the next week or two though! Just sit on your buying hands and wait people, it will come eventually. P.S. - On a side note, if any of our official Corsair guys are still monitoring this thread,...
Yes....And double yes! I would definitely pay an extra $10 if this came with a backplate. Please consider it Corsair!
...And this is why I will be buying TWO of these for both of my Reference R9 290's. Shame on the haters, I for one am very excited about this one. Good on you Corsair!
I definitely will if it happens again, but I bet you're right about the fan lube. It could've dripped down from the 290 directly above it!
I guess some types of RMA's wouldn't require a receipt but as for HIS's they definitely do. The receipt has to be attached to the RMA form to even be considered for an RMA service number. It is a really annoying form too. But regardless the card is fixed and you are just as amazed as I am!My theory is that the residue from the slight corrosion was conductive, which was in turn blocking/scrambling signals that were being sent through that part of the card (power management)...
It's Fixed! Alright everyone! So I fixed the card! I stripped it down to the complete bare PCB and used 91% Isopropyl Alcohol and a microfiber cloth to clean the ENTIRE PCB, front and back. Then, on the problem area on the back, I used a coarse scrubbing brush to clean away and shine the entire area leaving it void of any residues. After I cleaned all the corroded materials off and reapplied TIM and the cooler I tested the card a voila it runs just like new! I have no...
This is what I have been saying the whole time, but we think it might not be the temperatures that killed the VRM's, we think it was just that too much voltage was trying to be pushed through them.So true.Some Off-Topic (but still cool) CPU talk here: [[SPOILER]]Yes, I live in a very small town in the midwest, so random power outages and power outages during storms are very common here. But that is why I have my Anti-Surge support enabled in my BIOS, and I spent a ton of...
Yeah all the stickers and everything still seem 100% intact and none have been removed! The RMA form for HIS is very confusing so hopefully I fill it out right. But other than that, as for overclocking, I know we "don't need to" but where is the fun in that? Also, I just emailed the guy who sold it to me on Ebay. He was very nice the first time around so lets see if he can drum up the original purchase receipt. Otherwise my RMA is going nowhere!
