Corsair 800D water build: Modded for TWO 480mm radiators (final incarnation) - Page 9

post #81 of 789

Well, tested the MSI on its own, which I should have done from the beginning, it did not boot . Paired with either Zotac in dual sli and it crashes with any benchmark. I didn't notice that in gpu-z and in triple sli, this MSI was barely doing any thing, most of the time usage was @ 1%. Sent rma request to new egg. waiting for shipping label.


EDIT: I just read Newegg's rma policy, if the item is out or stock, they're going to refund me. Im going to call them and ask if they are getting any more msi gtx 470 in stock soon, I can wait as long as I get a working card.

Im not sure if I should rma with MSI, but then they might issue a refurbished one. I'm hoping newegg will wait until they have them in stock.

I have yet to receive a reply from newegg, but more crappy news. the msi is deactivated, meaning its n/a anymore . it seems like Im getting a refund, there is a zotac on sale, I'll probably get that one instead. My first zotac oc like a champ, the 2nd was weird but now its fixed. Im going to send the card tomorrow


EDIT: I called newegg, the rep told me there is a chance I will be a offered a "comparable" replacement or a refund. The gal was nice enough to provide a return label for free. Though the rma/returns department would make that decision as the MSI is deactivated. I'm crossing my fingers I can get a replacement.

This blows, Im getting a refund as newegg aint going to get the MSI back in stock and they won't exchange it for a Zotac . oh well, at least I submitted the MSI rebate already and the Zotac has another rebate available. Any one have a discount code for vga cards for newegg? thanks

on a side note, the R3E only has one usb header, so I bought a couple of wires to use the other front panel header of the 800d from frozencpu, they were in back order though I got an email a few days later telling me it was shipping, a week goes by and nothing, no email w/ tracking. I check their site, the cables are in stock. its been two weeks now, I emailed them, got a reply from Mark (the ceo) he said they were in back order and just arrived today. really!?!?!? They just emailed me its shipping today, it seems my order fell through the cracks and they forgot about me .

Yeah, just my bad luck here continuing here folks.

lol ^^^

Ok, even though newegg could not exchange the MSI for a Zotac, asked for a discount and they are giving $10 off the Zotac, at least it's something. The Zotac also has a $20 mir and I've already submitted the MSI $35 rebate, so in all its about a $65 off the price, which will be a bit more than the MSI w/ that rebate during the BlackFriday crazy sales. I just put in the order and I got free rush delivery so hopefully it goes out today and arrives shortly. Im cool w/ the Zotac, as my first two oc to 850 core easily.

My two Zotacs have been benched quite a few times and oc'd to 850/1700/2000 I squeezed out 30k in vantage (dx10) and 20k for the cpu (no physx ). hopefully I can break 40k gpu with all three
