Worse than that mate !
They had the backplate when i took the order but since my order is delayed because of the pre-fill option they give it to someone else !

Aaah. I'm sorry. I misunderstood. I thought it was about the mlc setup.

Yeah that is pretty lame then. Surprising as they're CS is generally some of the best.

You contact them at all? Maybe they can work something out for you?

Have we gotten any confirmation on the delay? Can't seem to find any "official" information about it. It's really sad for me as Skylake-X seems to be pushed for an earlier release this summer. Was going with pre-filled EK for both the CPU and GPU on might next build, but it doesn't seem like MLC will make it in time and the predator line-up is End-of-Life so I'm forced to be looking at something else. Going full custom seems to be a little bit too expensive and time consuming for little gain.

Your gain would be in having a custom loop prior to launch of mlc. Sometimes you have to look at things with a different perspective other than performance. wink.gif

I wish I could help speed things along for you, but honestly if they are undergoing a move there is not much to be done if anything. Short of hopping abort a plane and showing up at their doorstep ready to help out with manual labor. Although showing up with the preferred 6pack of suds may speed things along. biggrin.gif

Yup, send them some mails, nothing to do really, either cancel the order, cancel the pre-fill (which in my case is not possible) or just wait which is what i am doing

Why the pre filled so important? Just the no hassle of a custom loop?

I started with the predator and managed to work my way up to custom. Always starts with the little things. External res, then gpu block. Before I knew it I'm ordering a d5 pump res, 360 rad, and fittings.

leak-free warranty
I could pay more and go for a custom loop but yes there is the hassle of building it, and in case something goes wrong and i fry my hardware because of a leak, i would have to pay for it again.
With the pre-fill block, ek will be the one to pay in case there is a leak which is something less to worry about wink.gif

Hopefully the mlc line will have a d5 pump available and the possibility to put two res in the loop.

I can all but guarantee it won't come with a d5. Too expensive and would push it into a price point that's just not 'attractive'

I'm sure you'll be able to put another res inline. My only real Co seen is the expandability of it though. If you scan through some posts earlier on this thread it would appear that ek is a little picky when it cones to that and covering the warranty.

I don't remember specifically but it would seem if you didn't expand the predator in a particular way they wouldn't cover it. For instance, I think my Bitspower gpu block alone would have negated the warranty. I mean, I sort of get it, but since ek didn't make a gpu block for my card, I had no real choice.

Look back a month or so and you'll see where there was a conversation about this. Kind of shocked me to be honest and is one of the reasons I went custom.

So I've got 2 predator 360s in my case in a parallel loop they are both cooling my CPU and are attached to a very big reservoir. Do you guys think there's any issues with the pumps running in sync through the same lines. Been months and so far so good..


Also I had a question. I unpluged both of the predators pumps and plugged them directly to the motherboard and have them at full speed I had to set them to DC in my bios but they are both working 100% I read somewhere they have to have Sata power to run but mine are running at 3-3100 rpm just fine?

Just curious.
