post #1431 of 3633
3 is a bit much in my opinion and id probably rma in that case unless they are super minor. still probably has zero affect on performance but out of principle when Q&A is that questionable id send it in, but thats your call. good luck though either way!thumb.gif

1. these pipes transfer heat mainly by conduction through the metal of the pipe and convection of a gas in the pipe (may be just air or maybe some other gas I don't know)
2. the kinks should have very little affect if any on the conductive properties, and unless the flow of gas is severely restricted (major kink) then the convective process of the gas should be very minimally if at all affected
So the conclusion I would make is. DON'T WORRY because it should be just fine and not affect cooling performance at all. The only reason to RMA it in my opinion is if it really ruins the visual appeal and if you can't live with it. For $200 per board it should be perfect ill grant you that but it is a good board and you will likely never be able to see it or never look at it once its in your case. Hope that helps thumb.gif

mine does not have any, maybe i'm just lucky ...

In the future, if I attempt a clock rate that requires a voltage increase it seems like changing the Turbo multiplier no longer works as it's not possible to manage the CPU clock/voltage configuration once it's below the Turbo (overclock) speed.

Under CPU features "Limit CPUID Maximum" set to disable

Got mine yesterday, no kinks, perfect.

Looks awesome, much better than my old mobo

Only problem was I bought a new CPU cooler and didn't take into account that there's heatsink stuff around the top/left/bottom of the CPU slot and so i can't fit the cooler

Nice one. I'm pretty unlucky to have three kinks on a pipe then. Haha

Unsure yet, but it seems I will. You don't even find at least one kink on one of the pipes? Refer to my pics at page 142.

knicks in the cooling pipes dont matter.. they are sealed.. so long as the heat pipe is not punctured there will be no performance difference for cooling.

 

*aesthetically though.. redface.gif .. yeah.. kind of a bummer

post #1439 of 3633
I had a quick look. The pipes between heatsinks definitely have no kinks though

Yeah agreed CL3P20, but for people that have a windowed case or like things as they should be, small kink could be as bad as a puncture smile.gif

I'll have to check for kinks properly when I get home, was half asleep when I was putting it into case so didn't particularly look
post #1440 of 3633
So built everything into new mobo and case today aaaand... BSODs! Windows logo for a split second, then bsod for a split second, then reboot
