Wish I could find EK Uni Bridge blocks. Only PPCs' really had them and now that EK went to their sturpid Bubble design it's damned right impossible to find them and a Parralel Block.

Now Im rather worried about my FC8V2... Only one fan per channel though. Any other good options out there that look as good?
The US Lamptron rep is looking into it for me,because these have had the front panels modded (screws removed and cyanoacrylate dotted in to stop it falling off) RMA wont be entertained from the vendor and rightly so,they shouldnt have to swallow defects like this.
Modded or not, thing should not have caught fire. Pretty sad that it did all you changed were the LED color and unless you accidentally bridged a connection(highly doubtful) Lamptron should at least get you another to get you through the Event. This way they save face, you make your event and everyone is happier all around. I don't expect them to RMA the unit but 60 Quid is still 60 Quid so it's worth conferencing with them and see what arrangement they can come too, to everyones satisfaction.
*Edit* Just changed out the last two EK fittings and re-pinned my splitter harness to keep the blasted thing from coming off the controller. That was pretty quick even for me. I think the longest part was when I was tearing up the house looking for my replacement pins. This place is still in disarray a month removed from carpeting. I seriously need to get my Workbench here so I will know right where everything is at. Gonna have to replace the top to accommodate the Anti-Static mat that I have in the corner of one of the rooms. But at least my work area is being fixed up proper. Just need to start going through boxes to find everything and put it in its proper place.
