I have no ideas how you guys are getting the temps you are. My 5930k at 4.3ghz @ 1.2v and 980ti at 1450 / 8000 during gaming are at low 60's idle is 26 - 32.

Well they finally replied and will be sending it back for a refund and going custom loop. Thanks EK thought I would share.

It's always nice to see an active company.

Just some feedback on the Rev 1.1 for you guys at EKWB, just installed mine tonight noticed a couple of things

When fully tightening the stand off screws and mounting the water block my ASUS ROG M8 Hero wouldn't post I had to adjust the stand offs a bit and my mobo started to boot got a feeling some design work is needed on the rubber gasket or the bracket as its like something was touching something it shouldn't do.

When installing in a 900D at the top the tubing is very tight I do think you need to make it slightly longer two inches would improve things greatly

update
Found the little washers stuck in the nut used them and it sorted my boot problem out.

They finally got back to me the other day. Saying it would ship out by the end of the week. It doesn't even sound like they want my R 1.0 back.


I will be interested to see if the new R 1.1 will drop my temps anymore. I already impressed with what 1.0 does with my hardware. Sits around 30 to 34C with XMP enabled. All the other AIO have used would Idle at around 38 to 42C.

I do have a smaller case, Cube sized one from Case-Labs.

Change all the hoses to clear. Add a reservoir and add Pastel Blood red to the mix =) and of course save more money and add another 980TI down the road =) Currently in talks with Avexir and hoping ill get sponsored from them and if so ill be changing out all my Ram and my SSD's for their ROG line of products

Let me know what you guys think. thumb.gif

Are you using Quiet edition or performance edition SP 120s?

Those LEDs sound like a cool addition too...any chance you could show us the inside of your rig? biggrin.gif

Here are some pics for you !

I'm doing the same. All in for a custom loop now. Micro Center wasn't getting back to me via phone or email. I finally went there and the manager said he hadn't been notified and wasn't aware. I ended up getting a credit for my 360. It had been over 30 days and they tried telling me that RMAs are typically done through the manufacturer so I also had to explain my back and forth wth EK and who's responsible for what. Shouldn't be so painful. Anyway, my EVO Elite arrived yesterday. Still waiting on my 2 980 strix blocks. I put the Micro Center credit towards a Revo D5, an X3 250 res, 2 360 coolstream PEs and I went with the same EK tubing and fittings that the predator uses. I figure why do a crazy loop based off the predator when I can just do a full custom, no predator. I'm still going to cut my other systems over to the predator 240 once things are ironed out and 1.1 has proven itself.
