post #3521 of 11740
Built my prodigy build yesterday.
Case is amazing, got a few plans with it but i have a ram ior mob issue, ASRock Z77E-ITX.
My system won't boot with two sticks of ram installed, fans will spin up for 5-10 seconds and then restart.
Removing one stick and it boots fine. Tried both stick one at a time and both are fine. Am i doing something wrong or a broken mobo? (ASRock Z77E-ITX)

Have you tried it with one stick in a slot then trying it in the other slot, just to establish if one slot is not registering?

Yeah, it won't boot with ram in the second slot, even if that is the only ram installed. Im thinking its a issue with that ram slot on the mobo

Sounds like it mate, that sucks. I'm sure you have it seated right, but i have seen several people comment how hard they have to push the RAM in on this motherboard, due to clips at one side only, i don't see the issue with mine.

Yeah i wish it was just a seating issue, Tried taking them out and making sure they are back in correctly so many times. Oh well, i bought it through amazon and they are pretty good and replacements. Thanks anyway

That stinks nb14, sorry to hear that mate. frown.gif It happens though and you have my sympathy. My 3750k is a bad overclocker requiring 1.35 Vcore just to get to 4.5 Ghz.

In recompense, my 7950 is golden though. 3rd fastest single GPU on OCN right now in the Heaven 3.0 benchmark Top 30 thread, besting the majority of the single gpu 7970's, and all of the single gpu 670's & 680's that have submitted results so far. Can't be mad about that! biggrin.gif

Hey all,
I'm expecting to build my prodigy in January and am still sorting out a few options before I start buying stuff. I'll just hop straight into my questions (apologies if these are repeats, but 350+ pages is a lot to filter through)

1) XSPC 750 X2O where the hdd cages are. I foresee no issues with sliding this in, but haven't seen anyone with it. Would it still be possible to fit one in with a 200m rad at the front?
2) speaking of 200m rad, has anyone managed to squeeze one in with a gtx 690 in there as well?
3) 690 waterblocks. XSPC is presumably no problem, but how about EK with their (stupid) holes on the front. Anyone been able to get some fittings to sneak around over the top without colliding with a top mounted radiator with 2x120mm fans? (I mention the EK because I really prefer the aesthetic of it over the XSPC and it's lack of backplate.)

p.s this is my first watercooled build so feel free to give me advice if you see some hideous errors. I'd love to be able to cool the 3570k and gtx 690 on one 240 rad, but I expect to be looking at a TDP of 450w after overclocking (hope my calcs were right) and whilst I don't mind a temp delta of 15ish,I really want to avoid thermals holding me back!

Thanks in advance smile.gif

Hi Random, I'll answer what I can for you. smile.gif

I just took a measurement, and there is 5.25" exactly between the back of my 180 mm fan (without a radiator in the front). So I'd suggest either a different rad arrangement/plan, or a different reservoir & pump combo. I can highly recommend the Swiftech Apogee Drive II to that effect. smile.gif

Sorry, I haven't seen it attempted, so I can't really properly comment on this.

I would guess based on my setup, that it could be done with a little clearance work, and the tight radius 90° single or double rotary Bitspower fittings like I have on my AD II & gpu block return line, that yes it can be done. But the specific dimensions of the EK block when mounted on the card would give me a better idea, and then I can take measurements and tell you for certain. A Heatkiller block is a better choice in the Prodigy with anything less than a 45 mm thick rad due to the orientation of the inlets & outlets, over that, and you'll be cutting a small notch in the radiator casing to accommodate fittings. That said, the UT-60 can be made to fit handily with a slight bit of modding. biggrin.gif

Again, I'd have to guess here based on TDP's. Being that my gpu alone, which is massively clocked, is peaking in the 300w range occasionally, and being kept well within specs even when running some ridiculous Vcore on my cpu on the same loop with a single Alphacool NexXxoS UT-60 240 mm radiator. I'd say you'll be fine. My max temps were 64° on my gpu and cpu cores once the loop reaches equilibrium. Perhaps with a GTX 690, a couple of (few) degrees hotter, but still well within safe limits. If you run into a wall with temps, you can always add another radiator later. Also, a nice feature of the UT-60 in a Prodigy, is the multi port arrangement. I use the additional two ports on top for filling and de-aeration, very handy to have up there, let me tell you! smile.gif

Moar rad! is nice, but not always necessary. wink.gif

for those of you with modular psus (seasonic x650) did you bother extending the cable cutout or is leaving it stock acceptable?

Happy to have helped. smile.gif I was thinking about building a Prodigy myself, but I decided to go with the Fractal Design Node 304. Good luck with your build!
