EK - 8 days and possible corrosion - Page 7

post #61 of 77
Thread Starter 
GUYS!..

i have posted pics in page 4/5 where i took the block apart.

That brownish stuff was some crap that i just wiped off... No flaking or copper yet

But upon closer inspective, there seems to be uneven plating .

Bottom and top below the jets there are black dots.. they are abit lumpy.
Bottom right corner yellowish ring around the hole.

^^Uneven plating... w/o seeing what you're seeing I'd unfortunately have to say that's par for the course with Ek.

anyway i took it apart..

it seemed like it was a smear of something..

however i closely inspected the quality and i wasnt too happy about that..



i cant get those black speckle bits out.. they seem that they were missed when they were EN coating it.
You're pics couldn't possibly be any blurrier? Btw, the jet plate is stainless. Get a real camera dude.

possible plating discoloration. This happens due to phosphor in nickel,

There is nothing wrong with your block except that is is not all shiny and beautiful anymore. So your entire complaint is about nothing that effects performance. It's not corrosion.

Eddy is a fine fellow. I've been buying EK blocks before many of you ever joined OCN let alone put an LCS on your rig. You want to run the guy into the ground over nothing. Pathetic.

Lol you can tell just how many ek haters jump straight to saying its corrosion and dont buy it....

I did have corrosion on my 580 blocks but they are taken care of nicely, i dont see a problem with their service at all. To all the people who praise koolance i can tell you they have crappier customer service.

I did wonder if it was flux from the rad myself. It may not be the block's fault here (yeah, I know, shock, horror).

Still running strong, if I wanted to cool my video cards I prolly will go with EK. Was surprised how fast it shipped from Slovenia, and cheap to.

Cyber, you of all people should be aware of the fiasco regarding the corrosion and terrible plating on EK products from the last year. It was headline news on every enthusiast site.

Eddy sank his own reputation with his lack of customer support, again, an area that you are all to familiar with. I've never heard of a complaint about your customer service. Eddy, on the other hand, denied that the problem was with his blocks, his plating process, the materials used, etc. In fact, he denied everything and blamed end users for using kill coils. Then he blamed users using distilled water with pt-Nuke. Then said the only thing that people should be using are pre-mixed coolants.

So, tell me. Why, within the last year he would do such a thing when before that, it was never an issue?

He's crooked. That's why.

Molecules, not atoms, and the moment you open the cap it's not 100% pure anymore. Also, most RO systems are not 100% effective, more like 99.97% effective.
