Who takes a $600 mobo out of the box and mounts it in a water loop with hard tubing for initial testing?

Not to be snooty, we all have our sloppy build and testing moments, but I’m guessing this is user error 2X (he claims his first R5E10 was DOA).

Whenever you have a chance would be great. I'll have to overclock vicariously through you until EK releases that monoblock.

I don't mind at all, I'm vicariously running a 10-core. biggrin.gif


Here's the 6800K with 44 multiplier at load. thumb.gif


Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 running in the background, it starts with Win10.

It doesn't look like it's doing anything, no?


According to Anandtech (link), Turbo Boost 3 has to be enabled in the BIOS.
Quote:
Turbo Boost Max 3.0 has to be supported by the motherboard manufacturer in the BIOS. The TBM3 settings have to be set in the BIOS, which means that the usefulness of such a feature is actually down to the motherboard manufacturers.

The software may be running, but is it enabled?

Edit: TBM3 is only supposed to run in single-threaded applications. Do you have any games we could try out?

Oh you wanted it installed configured running AND enabled? Well why didn't you say so? tongue.gif

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I've had mostly good experiences dealing with Daz, but working on Arcane Sanctum I had a negative one. Disclaimer: it was my fault, but the customer is always right. Certainly we could blame the interpretive tones of email communication and/or second languages being involved, but it left a sour taste in my mouth regardless.

I accidentally ordered the wrong sized soft-tube fittings for my build (5/8" OD instead of 1/2"). I took them out of the bags to take a photo for the build log before realising my error.

Anyway, I emailed Daz to ask about a partial credit later that night.
Quote:
The soft tubing and compression fittings I ordered aren't the size I intended. These eight 3/8"ID - 5/8"OD Straight Compression Fitting - Black Nickel are too large and won't be used in my loop. I did remove the fittings from the bag to take a photo, but I'd be happy to send the fittings back for any partial credit you'd be willing to consider.

I then went on to explain that I had a long list of items that I was about to purchase for my build to see if that would help my cause.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
What I was going to order:
14 - 3/8"ID - 1/2"OD Straight Compression Fitting - Black Nickel
~12-20 - Ultra Clear Tubing (3/8 - 1/2) 10/12mm Tubing
9 - 90 Degree Rotary Adapter M/F G1/4 Black Sparkle BP-BS90R
2- 90-Degree With Dual Inner G1/4" Extender - Black Sparkle
5 - EK-AF Pass-Through G1/4 - Black Nickel
4 - G1/4" Bitspower Multi-Link Adapter Low Profile - Black Sparkle (Single fitting)
2 - Bitspower - Ball Shutoff Mini-Valve - Black Sparkle
8 - Bitspower - Premium G1/4" Black Sparkle Stop Fitting
2 - Bitspower - 4-way Splitter, Q Block Crossconnect Adapter - Black Sparkle
6 - Bitspower - 5mm Spacer Extender Adapter - G1/4 Male/Male - Black Sparkle

He responded with a one liner:
Quote:
Sorry, but I only can accept return of unopened items.

Also explaining that some soft goods are final sale (tubing etc).

I wasn't expecting a full refund by any means but I was frustrated by this response. For a 10% store credit on the returned fittings (~$9) I would have at least felt that Daz was willing to provide a viable option to what was a frustrating mishap. While I'm sure he certainly didn't mean it, this basically came through as "Sorry not sorry, f--- you, you're on your own!" and it cost him my order (which I placed with Performance PCs later that day).

Forget partial credit, even a haphazard explanation of why this was the policy would have preserved my order.


I've since placed orders for some odds and ends with Dazmode and certainly wouldn't hesitate to do business with him, but that's the value (and cost, in this instance) of customer service.

I had a similar situation. My side rad mount for the S8S I ordered from him turned out to be for the pedestal. I only realized after I opened it and tried to mount it. I sent him and email and explained the situation and he gave me partial credit. In my case it worked out, he also let me return some 3/8 5/8 tubing to exchange, but that was unopened. My past builds have all been from PPCs or Dazmode and each time I've been happy. Daz can be a bit high on shipping charges though.

Really miss that CPU super-binning guy.

Where he be? redface.gif

Really love the performance of the 6800K at the binned 4.4GHz 1.344volts for working a long day, the temps are nice the responsiveness in my apps feel much faster than my 6700K at 4.8GHz, although I cannot explain why by the numbers alone, something inherent within the X99 platform itself? M8E vs R5E10?

The 6800K and R5E10 FEEL during normal workaday computing the simple tasks, as if you're running on an 8-lane highway and there are no other cars, and all the lanes are yours alone, I think that was a Seinfeld episode.

Not sure if that makes any sense, but I do know the 6700K and 6800K at the same overclock feel MUCH different, the quad core feels very quick for short bursts within a narrow bandwidth, while the 6-core feels less hesitant, garnering more overall power and command of the task, and that greater metaphorical bandwidth luxury superhighway I tried clumsily to explain above.


I could drive all day with the BWE.


Thank you guys for making me spend more money, that’s what friends are for. tongue.gif
