Its a ripoff unless you like to waste money for no good reason you would still be better off with the EVGA SuperNova G2

to be honest, I doubt EVGA SuperNova G2 is able to handle tri titan SLI as overall power could easily go over 1000w after some overclocking. I oveclock CPU, RAM and GPU.
One good reason I go for ax1200i is corsair's after-sale service.

What do you have against EVGA?

I ask because despite you have been told its a very good PSU many times you still dont want anything to do with it

EVGA service is also just as good as Corsair´s so it makes little sense to go with the AX1200i when its priced higher

Installed the water blocks today and noticed the factory heatsink don't make contact with 3 of the 10k capacitors but the EK's block does.


Anyhow blocks installed,

The G2 is a 1300 watt unit, and is extremely tough, & only 200$. I think you have it confused with the p2 1000W... EVGA Customer service>Corsair customer service any day. Took corsair 2 weeks to respond to my headset RMA request. Took them 8 days to respond to my blown HX850 RMA request... Took EVGA 2 hours (on a sunday) to respond to my blown 670 RMA request, & they emailed me directly when my PSU was part of the re-call.

Those are inductors, and they don't normally get all that hot at all, so it's not too important that the stock block missed the end ones.

Having them all covered does look soooo much better though.

Hello,

Thank you for the information but are you sure adding thicker thermal pad (>2mm) will not drastically reduce heat transfer from vrm's to waterblock?
When you stress your rig (by playing, benching etc.), the waterblock is hot?

Thx wink.gif
post #4160 of 14602
I doubt the waterblock gets hot, if the thermal pads do reduce the heat transfer, it would get even less hot. I'm sure it does add a bit of inefficiency, but my case needs them, the memory blocks all airflow to the vrm heatsinks and with a 3930k at 5 GHz, it can actually bun my fingers to touch the stock heatsinks. I'll be buying the XSPC Black edition block kit when they launch, but I'm only using the vrm block, the chipset is fine and I like the ROG light on the board.
