Purchased mine today, it kind of hurt my wallet tongue.gif.

Can see what I got by clicking the name of my rig, the new OCN is pretty neat!!

I'd get a block that already is 2011 certified, Koolance's 370 is, EK Supreme HF is. I'm not sure about the other ones. I'd save the headache and buy the block you want when it'll be available for the 2011 bracket.

My system is overclocked to 4.45Ghz on watercooling, and I gotta say, that every since I upgraded to the EVGA 3GB Video Cards (from previous MSI 1.5GB tri sli video cards) that I have had an abundance of BSOD's.. and random restarts..
Well to cut a long story short, I have returned the video cards for testing and two out of the three 3GB GTX 580's was faulty!! They ended up today, approving credit back to me for all three video cards, so now I am going to buy the MSI Lightning Extreme Overclock GTX 580's 3GB and put them in Tri SLI. For good measure (to try and alleviate the BSOD's) I am ebaying my motherboard (Rampage III Extreme after it gets replaced from warranty.. faulty eSata built in) and replacing next week with RAMPAGE IV Extreme and 3930K CPU and 16GB of Corsair Vengeance 2,133Mhz RAM Kit...
So this way, I THOUGHT... I have covered all my bases, and am replacing all the crucial components of the system (total overhaul) ie. NEW Motherboard, RAM, CPU, Video Cards x 3, and therefore I thought.... I will definitely (should) eliminate BSOD's and random restarts?
MY PROBLEM NOW... is that i read your thread, and your faulty AX1200??
What if my AX1200 is the cause of some of my BSOD's?
How do I know for sure.. Do i wait till i put all my new components in and fresh install.. and test? How did you test and kick off some of these issues?
Thanks for your insight..
Cheers
Nick


A bad PSU can fry all your components one by one, but I think that by changing everything, you should be OK. Maybe there's some issue with your PSU, but except if you have very expensive equipment, you can't really test it.

The only way to know for sure is doing what I did: remove the AX1200 and try another PSU, even a cheap one you have in another system. Using a Corsair AX850 instead of the AX1200 solved my computer restart completely, so I knew it was the AX1200. Just use another PSU instead of your AX1200.

I think the Rampage fried first (after 10 minutes...), and that ''frying'' killed my 3930k, and damaged my AX1200, since the AX1200 was working perfectly fine the day before with my Maximus + 2600k + 3X6970. Sigh.

My Antec HCP-1200 is coming in later today, so I will (finally!) be able OC my 3930k and try my 4X 6970 set-up. smile.gif I hope...

I wanted to get the EK Supreme HF and was waiting to see if they were going to release one for 2011. I hadn't read anywhere that it was 2011 certified or I would have already ordered one. When I place my order do I also need to buy an M4 conversion kit, or do you think the block will ship with the mounting hardware? Thanks for the help.

Edit: Found this on the EK site, right under my nose the entire time. EKWB has released new mounting mechanism for Intel's latest LGA-2011 socket architecture. All CPU water blocks sent as of 14th of November, already include this new mounting mechanism. Thanks for the reply shnur.

It includes the easy-mount kit; which should support 2011 if it's shipped after Novermber 14th.

 

EK statement: http://www.ekwaterblocks.com/index.php?mact=News,cntnt01,detail,0&cntnt01articleid=112&cntnt01origid=15&cntnt01returnid=17

 

They will release both nickel and copper. Nickel is actually copper, but plated in nickel, so you can mix them without any worries.

post #248 of 9809
Thanks so much for sharing your experience..

I just got an update last night on my 3 x EVGA video cards that were sent for warranty repair back to EVGA offices here in Australia.

They have come back to me with confirmation that all three video cards were faulty, and they are now crediting back the money for all three cards because the particular model I had card has been discontinued.

I have in the meantime, applied the online store credit (from EVGA initially) back to the purchase of 3 x MSI GeForce GTX 580 3GB Lightning Extreme Edition OC Video Cards and I should receive them in the next 3-5 days.

EVGA Warned me NOT to accept the PC system back from the supplier without a replacement Corsair AX1200 power supply, or else, I will definitely start experiencing the starting of BSOD’s and random restarts again, sometime in the near future because of very likely damage again!

So there you go.. Your experience and my experience with AX1200 causing issues and damage..

My PC Supplier also separately confirmed damaged/faulty motherboard as well.. so you can't possibly have all these faults on motherboard and all three video cards, without the power supply being the cause..

Again.. thanks for sharing..

My NEW System will be 1-2 weeks from arriving, but under no circumstances will I accept it with the original power supply!! Unless I want to kill three new video cards, and a new motherboard and NEW CPU and NEW RAM!!...

Cheers

Nick
