If you look at where the inner screws of the FC Terminal are connected, each of them has a crack... The block leaks badly from there. frown.gif

I just sent an RMA form to EKWB, hoping it's dealt with fast... Got them yesterday and they were sealed so not sure how it passed their quality control. frown.gif

I hope you get your RMA quick. Iv'e been waiting about 3 weeks now for my RMA to show up. Applied for the RMA 5 weeks ago. I see more cracked acrylic tops than anything else it seems, the the acetal seems to strip. So it's a trade off I guess.

Yeah I had my first 290X block's acetal threads from the in/out ports strip off from factory on one of the holes, so I had to RMA it and they sent me a new fc link/terminal quite fast and I kept the damaged one (which is useless tho biggrin.gif).

I just hope this RMA goes fast, the block is brand new and I had been waiting for 2 weeks for my order to be here, so not happy at all.

mad.gif that's terrible... I'm getting ready to believe that my package is lost in the mail. They sent it "posta Slovenije" which has no tracking information. It was shipped out on December 27th... sad-smiley-002.gif

I will probably reuse my motherboard, CPU, GPU, and GPU block. Perhaps some of the fans, storage drives, PSU, will stay as well.

Buy now explain later tongue.gif

How long did it take from the time you submitted an RMA to the time they shipped your replacement? Not sure if they'll make me ship this block back, it's completely useless to be honest, and I'd hate to pay shipping back to Slovenia...

By the way, that "Posta Slovenije" was what they used for my part that I RMA'd and only took a few days to arrive to Spain, maybe yours is stuck at Customs or something?

I opened the ticket on December 11th. So, a month from today. They are also only sending me replacement plates for the GPU's. Though, I did convince them to send me a whole new CPU block.

so what are peoples opinions on Parallel Vs. Serial when running tri-sli? I'm having some temp problems with my top gpu (in parallel) it runs a good 7-10c hotter than the other two cards. I checked the TIM & pads, everything is gravy... So all I can assume is that it's not getting enough flow. Thinking about switching to Serial, anyone have any opinions/advice?

Serial>Parallel

The first card always runs slightly hotter...10c is a bit beyond that tho,probably a duff mount.

As for cards being uneven in serial....
I can do a Heaven run and show you that my triSli rig has 1c between them...the middle card is in fact the coolest....

Usually parallel gets you more evenly cooled GPUs across the board than series. The flow is the same across all 3 cards in parallel, so you would be having flow problems over all 3 if you were having flow problems at all. The flow across each card of course is much higher in series.

There really isn't a huge difference either way though and mostly is an aesthetic decision

What does your loop consist of? What pump?
