How true is this? Pamphlet included with my new EK waterblock. - Page 3

post #21 of 37
You probably won't see any real difference in temps using EK coolant and IMO would be better off using distilled water EK is just adding that notice to cover their broken products and bad engineering .

Alright then. Distilled with biocide it is.

Anyone got any thoughts on the jetplate thing? 5c is a big difference if using the third plate is somehow better when EK themselves say the second one is optimized for LGA1155 CPUs

with jetplates the bigger the opening the better, EK's instructions are bollocks

Alright thanks, going to replace it with the jetplate with the larger opening then. At least I found this out before assembling the whole system, still have the motherboard in the box, just attached the blocks to it so far.

Hmm. I guess I'll just continue on with my plan to use mayhems Pastel coolant with my loop then.
And yea the more I think about it, the more it makes sense that the biggest jet plate would be best. LGA 2011 chips produce more heat on average anyway right? So it would make sense...

I dont get why EK would give such instructions o__o
What happens if we run the block without a plate at all? Or does that cause seal issues lol.

Well I just took my block apart and changed the jet plate to the biggest one, all done. I was looking at the rear backplate on the back of the motherboard and was a bit worried about something. Obviously I have the rubber gasket between the board and the backplate, but the backplate looks as if it's touching the regular CPU-holder backplate, should I be worried?

Backplate:


Close up:

The two metal plates look really close, is there no danger of shorting the board/cpu out or something if they touch? is the plate on the back of the CPU grounded? They just look... way too close. Like if there's any pressure applied they might touch and zap, dead board/cpu, or not even that, surely electrical current can easily jump that small distance on it's own? or am I worried about nothing?

to my knowladge with backplates, if the two where to ever touch, it should not short the board. but still ask for a second opinion. Come xmas. i am taking my pc right down to the bone, and adding a rad and stuff to it. when i do i am going to take off the backplate to my Maximus Extreme-Z IV and check its ground, i would think the IV to the V wouldnt change that much in the sense of backplates, and what not. so when i confirm my answer, you should have yours confirmed.

Also in EK's defense, some loops are in parallel loops not series. Therefore by having the smaller jet plate in the block, when more water is restricted, more of a volume in water can go to the other components in the system. Where in a series loop you want as much water as fast as possible threw each block, thus the bigger jet plate use.
for the 2011 socket in parallel with GPUs and chip sets, ect. more heat off the cpu thus needing more water to keep an overall lower temperature.
where smaller cpu doesn't need as much heat dissipation in ratio to GPU or chip sets therefore you can restrict more water.

Code:
Parallel Discription (EXAMPLE)

                                    
|Rad -> Res -> Pump| --+----------+--------------- +                                 
|                  |  CPU        GPU              Ram
|Pump <- Res <- Rad| --+----------+--------------- +        

Well there is my epic fail at a text pic. but kinda shows a Parallel Loop.

Thinking about it, I would imagine it would have to be safe, because surely there's a bigger risk of someones rear case panel touching the CPU backplate, and we would hear about things like that happening a lot?
post #30 of 37
I have not had a problem with my backplate touching the stock one. I only have padding around the stock plate and between the waterblock plate and my mobo.
