Titan X Pascal Waterblock release date expectations - Page 16

post #151 of 317
Just saw this, and yep, not the right place, maybe over in the new Titan thread once I have more time! And I agree with you, if there is segment to try stuff like this, it is with people like us who buy this card, that is the same thing I told myself when I blew a C note on those FUJI pads. One thing that I didn't mention in my post... I was one of the people that was having issues with the EK backplate fitting properly on my Titan and I tracked it down to the length of the standoffs on the backplate vs. the different contact surfaces on the backplate, there was no way with the prescribed pad thickness to make contact on all of the GDDR chips and the VRM area at the same time. That was kind of easy to fix with the EK pads (which I read in a few places came from Fuji anyway) because their consistency was so nice, where it was near impossible to fix with the extreme stuff I bought. Maybe I never got it right and that is why I saw no improvement, the stuff in my post above was just a theory. If I would have just machined the backplate to fit correctly it would have been a better test, using two or three layers of pads as I saw recommended was probably terrible for thermal conductivity.

It would be nice if they ship this card out a bit early so those who preordered will get it on release day. I remember EK doing the same with the Predator 360 AIO

They kinda didn't really announce a release day, on their site it says "We’ll start shipping the blocks on Tuesday, 16th of August, 2016!", which really isn't defining a release day at all I don't think.

Well the 16th is basically the day the blocks are officially for sale, in the case of the Predator 240/360 it was the same thing( We'll ship on "x" date) but as a courtesy to those who preordered they shipped out the units early so customers would get them the day they went on sale.

No shipping yet but I've got the nickel with pre-filled + EDC's so that likely adds a day or two - but they are showing as in-stock or "Ready for Assembly" - soon I hope!
