My R5 had no issues. Everything works, fits, looks good, feels good, sounds good, smells good ... Not gonna taste it.

I got a missing define S front mag filter no charge. CS was prompt and polite. Used the support email in the states. I might spend more on a case to get happier, but the define S looks and functions good at its price point. I did email support about things I did not like about the design, but no response, lol.

My Fractal Design Define R5 Case Mod

So I had every intention of spending my weekend putting together a build log showing progress made on my first water cooled and modded computer build.
...BUT...
Last night I completed the water cooling loop and the system started up with no problem. I was super nervous water would just start gushing everywhere, but the system didn't have any leaks and booted without any issues What's the first thing you do after water cooling your PC? OVERCLOCK! I figured I'd play it safe and used Asus' automatic overclocking utility in the Ai Suite. The system reboots a couple times, which is expected. On the third reboot my computer did not come back on. I instantly had a bad feeling about this, like it was more than just a little Windows 10 quirk.
When I tried to turn on my PC again it posted fine, gave me the DEL or F12 to BIOS option (which did not work), and afterwards I got a message saying "Data in the EC or EC cash may be corrupt".
WHAT THE HECK?! I checked all of the usual things. I did the routine CMOS jumper, battery, power supply, change ram, unplug non-essentials, blah, blah blah. Nothing has worked. So I got the pleasure of taking apart my new water cooled system so I can try to fix the motherboard. Waiting for a reply from Asus as to what I should do. I'm hoping they will have an easy fix or will be able to replace my board.

I was/am so upset about the situation that I figured posting something will make me feel like I've actually accomplished something. So here are the exterior shots of my case.

The design is rather simple. 3 blow holes with MnPCtech overkill fan grills and the MnPCtech machined side panel. Eventually there will be a digital thermometer display behind the front cover that can be seen through the middle fan grill. Other than that I don't plan on doing much more to the exterior. My aesthetic tends to be rather simple and clean as opposed to the flash computers that will turn heads and I'm OK with that.

Beautiful work on the exterior there, just sorry to hear that you board is having problems.

I've had nothing but problems with an Asus X99-A board so maybe their QC is on par with Fractal's these days...

Could you use another computer to download the latest bios for that board and pale out on a flash drive per the EZ Flash instructions? Maybe by re flashing the bios it will live again. Oh and save the flash drive with the bios until you are satisfied with your OC. I have read that Asus's flash drive bios flashing can work without a CPU and RAM.

I thought about that, but it won't let me get into BIOS or EZflash.
I hit delete to get into BIOS to possibly boot from disk and no luck.
t just locks up and reboots after the logo/go to BIOS screen.

What is your mobo model?

This is the method I am referring to.
