I used to like GPU Tool but opening this program causes an instant red screen of death, it's a shame as I love that program.

I use about 30 minutes of looping Heaven. 50 runs of Crysis 1 Benchmark max settings, and a few runs of 3dmark Vantage to check for gpu stability.

EK blocks are flakey, from what I understand. I think that's the first time I've ever used that term literally

Working great. Very easy install.

Wasn't that just one production run or are they still like that? I haven't bought any full cover blocks for a while, none of my older EK nickel blocks ever flaked.

Well judging from the fact nobody else replied on this, I guess there is nothing that can be done - that is really disappointing.

In any case, thanks for letting me know guys.

That's sort of the big deal about the premium cards, I think the Asus DC II and Galaxy SOC also use the chips needed for software voltage control, everybody else has to do a hardware mod with soldering connections on the cards. I think EVGA uses a another method of voltage control on their cards, but I'm not sure there's much you can do with a reference card without a soldering iron.

AVOID EK like the plague.
Plating fiasco aka. nickelgate, blaming water, PT Nuke and anything but their plating for their bad practices
Not to mention their customer service which sucks.

undoubtedly there would be people that have had good experiences; but I cannot in my conscience recommend EK anymore.
You can read my sig for details of my situation that has prompted me to do so as well as statements from Sidewinders on RRTech.

Careful; RRTech has some NSFW content so i advise reading these at home or somewhere where you won't get shouted at by your boss/teacher ;p

Edit: For the record; EK EN plating (their new plating process) has still flaked for some people. More information can be seen in the "Nickel flaking" thread in the WC section.

Thread Starter 
well i got my new card in today and have done some quick testing and it seems to be a better card than my first one. My first card could do 1315/6800 on the LN2 bios without any voltage adjustment. This card does 1326/7012 on LN2 bios without any voltage adjustments. So, the core OC is about the same (~11mhz more), but the memory OC is a LOT better which is important in some of the 3d benchies.
