BS. EK gave me the runaround and pretty much denied my RMA (purchased through PPCS)

Luckily I don't notice it anymore.

 

Wow that's a pretty decent warp man. Good to hear you got some help to bend it back in to shape a little, but seriously that is pretty poor on EKs part.

I managed to squeeze the power and reset but the pled and hdd leds have no chance of getting in. Has anybody run into the same issue and found a fix?

 

Hey man have you tried just slightly bending the header pins?

That's really bizarre that it would do that just changing mobos. Did you actually see the hardware work on the techs mobo? 282fps in Thief seems a pretty crazy number considering 1x R9 290x only gets 65fps and a 780 ti gets 68fps! 2x R9 280Xs wouldn't triple the frame rate.

Have you tried to eliminate any other bits of hardware? Like using different combinations of RAM, using just one of your graphics cards, running your CPU at stock/overclocked, taking out your raid card and installing a game or 2 on your SSD?

Hi, let me clarify some things. The 282fps wasn't in the benchmark. That was just somewhere in game. The bench, got a 79 average fps. I did see the tech install on his mobo and daw the 282 fps. Thief is actually installed on ssd. Only game that is. I'm replying from my phone so can't upload, but i took photos of the rig on techs mobo, benchmark as well as the 282 fps. Will try and upload later. We thought it might be part problem but the tech tried all his components on my board first before trying the board switch.

Cool :thumb: How much of your hardware is being used in that picture on that mobo? I just noticed it looks like there is only 2 sticks of RAM being used in that shot. It just seems strange that 2 of the same mobos could have the exact same problem, it sounds to me more like one of the other components is having the issues.

sorry, this is the one where we started with my parts on his mobo. The other was just my cards in his mobo. And all parts were individually tested on my board.

Wow, that is very very strange hey. I honestly don't have any other suggestions at the moment for you sorry man. I run a triple SLI setup and haven't run into any issues like that at all. I can understand why your at your wits end. Have you got any other pictures of your M6E setup? Maybe we have missed something. What other troubleshooting have you done?

Tried it a little but I will go back and use some pliers this time and see if I can get them near vertical. Thanks smile.gif

Sorry if you already stated this but can you say which PCIE slots your two 280x are in? Are you following the manual on where to put them in a 2 way config ? Have you checked the bios under northbridge PCIE to make sure they are running at gen3? If it's set to auto and the card is pcie gen3 it should do it automatically hence the name but always good to check. I haven't been having problems with cards in a multi gpu setup. Everything is scaling properly, wish it would more but that's a driver issue not mobo.

Just snapped a few more pics:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)











The tape I used to secure the pumps to the frame came loose, and that's why the tubing kinked. Had to getter better tape to hold them in place.

My AS Media USB ports (2.0 and 3.0) also stopped working yesterday. Tried updating the driver, but keep getting a "can't find asm107x hub controller in current platform" error. Anyone else have this problem?
