The system would not boot up. I called my computer tech in and after he could not located the problem, he removed the radiator and saw the indentation in the fins and saw some fluid stains on the mainboard. He took the video card and ram home to test on his machine. They are fine. He doesn't have an AMD mainboard to test the cpu on, so I won't know whether it is ok until I replace the mainboard. My choices are Crosshair V Formula Z or Asrock Extreme 9. My only hesitation on Asrock is the numerous complaints I have seen concerning bios issues. I'd love feedback on the Asrock board from people who have purchased that particular board and their experience with it good and bad. I have to say I think it a design error by Corsair to allow the screws to be tightened causing radiator damage. Either the screws should have been slightly shorter or a small bracket on the radiator should have been installed to prevent punctures at the site where the radiator aligns with the screw holes. I wonder if it is worth the attempt to get a refund and compensation for mainboard damage.

My vote goes to the Crosshair.

Asrock9 is great for people unfamiliar with overclocking. The auto settings work better than any other board I've dealt with.
Down side is bios gives you almost no control, you pretty much have to use axtu (asrock oc software) also.
Board is niche for people who don't want to mess with bios.

CHV-Z better for you.

Hello gentleman,

I am stuck with a small problem here. My CPU is now clcoked at 5.1Ghz and pretty stable so far. Well, it's 30 minutes Prime stable (i never did more than 30 minutes). It is also very stable in games like BF3 and GTA IV, so no BSOD in 4 hours nonstop-gaming biggrin.gif
Now the problem is i get 'BSOD 124' when i come to OCN or GURU3D. It's kinda weird when you can play games and benchmark without BSOD, but when i go to browser everything starts to change. Whats the deal with that?

Normaly BSOD 124 means low Vcore, but why only in IE, or should i just try Google Chrome or something.....

Wow 5.1Ghz? What sort of cooling? Have you tried just upping the vcore 1 notch?

Does anybody think based on knowledge of Corsair warranty that I have a resonable chance of success in getting reimbursed fot cooler failure and destruction of my mainboard?

i doubt it only company that does is aphacool. and i think they may have a patent on it.... it is a comman thing with rads . you gotta watch your screw length.....




as far as the other things there is a reason it is more expensive over seas..... allt he government regulation ( you have what 30days to return a purchase no questions asked? who do you think pays for that kind of stuff? i promise the company wont....

I just realized how older coolers pre 2008 don't fare well with the fx 8 cores, just got an ek supremacy and got a temp drop and higher clocks smile.gif
