Nope :( I'm searching...

Well if anyone wants the BF3 board, I have an extra the Amazon is refusing to take back because they claim they never shipped it to me...

 


gone..

derickwm 11-28-2011 06:26 PM

OHHHH man that is a nice looking block! +Add to cart.

Oh wow just went and looked at the price... alrighty then.

OverK1LL 11-28-2011 06:28 PM

What's worse is the shipping. I might just ground ship this.


shnur 11-28-2011 07:06 PM

Sweet! I can't wait for my local store to get some :D


Tobarus 11-29-2011 01:44 AM

Thx for the update overk1ll!

So, so far only koolance has waterblocks out for the extreme iv? EK as previously mentioned has some in the works which according to their website will be out the end of Nov, but it's that time now and no new news?

Don't you just hate it when you buy the latest and greatest, yet have to wait for all the upgrades to be released after?

Still haven't even put anything in my system (still waiting for all the "accessories")

The must of just updated that...because I checked it about 5h ago and it said end of Nov ...now Dec 8th like you said.

Anyone see any pictures or anything of what it looks like (the ek block)?

Dunno if I should just get the koolance blocks now, or wait for EK. I'd love it if the EK blocks were all black.

Levesque 11-29-2011 05:13 AM

So after getting my first 3930K and Rampage burned, now my 4 months old Corsair AX1200 is giving me those random restart. Sigh. When using another cheap PSU, I don't get any restart. rolleyes.gif

Just ordred an Antec HCP-1200 to replace it.

Tobarus 11-29-2011 05:48 AM

EK's blocks (from EK's website)

What do you guys think? Go for Koolance's blocks, or EK's?

derickwm 11-29-2011 05:51 AM

Mmm tough choice but I think I'm going to have to go with Koolance on this one.

I'm thinking the same thing... leaning more on Koolance. From my experience, the steel threads for the compression fittings are much more durable as well (as apposed to acetal ports/threads on EK's). That, and EK's block reminds me so much of an ammo magazine for a machine gun!! Ugg... flashbacks of Gigabyte's euthusiast x79 mobo!!! yuck!

Just wish the entire setup of Koolance's blocks were black though.... *sigh*.

Levesque 11-29-2011 06:26 AM

I'm personnally waiting on the EK since I'm using an Ek Supreme HF.

But the Koolance block looks good. smile.gif

shnur 11-29-2011 01:16 PM

I'm going with Koolance, it's available, covers more and contains more metal over-all.


Jingiko 11-29-2011 04:42 PM

The Koolance block isnt that pricey, considering my Bitspower Classy block for the 1366 was about $160-180.

I will have to wait for the EK one to be released with the clear top.

Thanks for the updates guys!

You have ridiculously bad luck with getting this build running. I say toss in two 1200 watt silverstones or enermaxes and call it a day. I've been making cables for mine over the last few days and fingers crossed they don't fry anything when I use them.

derickwm 11-29-2011 05:06 PM

I know. Terrible bad luck. Never had that much problems in another build. Pinpointing the source of a problem on a new build can be really frustrating.

I will use 2 Antec HCP-1200. Those are good PSU. smile.gif But I, again, have to wait for the mail. Sigh.

Good luck with yours. smile.gif

Levesque 11-29-2011 07:23 PM

My first bench finally lol! Was able to do something without any crash. Took out the $%^#! Corsair AX1200, and my puny little AX850 is powering everything like a champ: 3930k, 2X Lightning 6970, 16Gb of DDR3-2400, 32 GT fans, 6 HDD, 4 SSD, 1 Blu-ray writer. smile.gif

My AX1200 was my problem all along. Sigh.

Everything at stock. 3930k stock, and 2 Lightning 6970 at stock. But him so happy lol, first time I can finish it without crashing, even at stock. The AX1200 is going to be RMAed ASAP. smile.gif

LOL. Everything at stock. Look at me! I'm alone to the right of the chart! Funny.

Anyone else here have problems with AMD display drivers constantly crashing?

Running a TFIII 6950, which is definitely working properly.

Drivers used to crash every 30s or so, everything else was fine, could bench the [email protected] as long as i disabled the display driver.

I may have managed to isolate the problem to the PCI-e power saving feature in windows 7, which may have caused the TDR, timeout detection and recovery issues causing the driver crashes.

Could anyone with more experience with such problems chime in?

Trying to make sure everything is stable before i O/C it for 24/7 use.

TIA.

Lord Vile 12-01-2011 01:24 AM

I'm waiting on the EK board block. However I don't currently even have a cpu block, do I just order a 1366 block and adapter screws or are they actually coming out with cpu blocks specifically for 2011?

This. smile.gif

FattyBoomba 12-01-2011 02:52 AM

I'm just curious Levesque about your AX1200 power supply situation. I too have the AX1200 in my 800D Case with X58 Rampage Extreme III Motherboard and tri sli gtx 580 3GB version cards.. My system is overclocked to 4.45Ghz on watercooling, and I gotta say, that every since I upgraded to the EVGA 3GB Video Cards (from previous MSI 1.5GB tri sli video cards) that I have had an abundance of BSOD's.. and random restarts..

Well to cut a long story short, I have returned the video cards for testing and two out of the three 3GB GTX 580's was faulty!! They ended up today, approving credit back to me for all three video cards, so now I am going to buy the MSI Lightning Extreme Overclock GTX 580's 3GB and put them in Tri SLI. For good measure (to try and alleviate the BSOD's) I am ebaying my motherboard (Rampage III Extreme after it gets replaced from warranty.. faulty eSata built in) and replacing next week with RAMPAGE IV Extreme and 3930K CPU and 16GB of Corsair Vengeance 2,133Mhz RAM Kit...

So this way, I THOUGHT... I have covered all my bases, and am replacing all the crucial components of the system (total overhaul) ie. NEW Motherboard, RAM, CPU, Video Cards x 3, and therefore I thought.... I will definitely (should) eliminate BSOD's and random restarts?

MY PROBLEM NOW... is that i read your thread, and your faulty AX1200??

What if my AX1200 is the cause of some of my BSOD's?

How do I know for sure.. Do i wait till i put all my new components in and fresh install.. and test? How did you test and kick off some of these issues?

Thanks for your insight..

Cheers

Nick

I'd get a block that already is 2011 certified, Koolance's 370 is, EK Supreme HF is. I'm not sure about the other ones. I'd save the headache and buy the block you want when it'll be available for the 2011 bracket.

A bad PSU can fry all your components one by one, but I think that by changing everything, you should be OK. Maybe there's some issue with your PSU, but except if you have very expensive equipment, you can't really test it.

The only way to know for sure is doing what I did: remove the AX1200 and try another PSU, even a cheap one you have in another system. Using a Corsair AX850 instead of the AX1200 solved my computer restart completely, so I knew it was the AX1200. Just use another PSU instead of your AX1200.

I think the Rampage fried first (after 10 minutes...), and that ''frying'' killed my 3930k, and damaged my AX1200, since the AX1200 was working perfectly fine the day before with my Maximus + 2600k + 3X6970. Sigh.

My Antec HCP-1200 is coming in later today, so I will (finally!) be able OC my 3930k and try my 4X 6970 set-up. smile.gif I hope...

I wanted to get the EK Supreme HF and was waiting to see if they were going to release one for 2011. I hadn't read anywhere that it was 2011 certified or I would have already ordered one. When I place my order do I also need to buy an M4 conversion kit, or do you think the block will ship with the mounting hardware? Thanks for the help.

Edit: Found this on the EK site, right under my nose the entire time. EKWB has released new mounting mechanism for Intel's latest LGA-2011 socket architecture. All CPU water blocks sent as of 14th of November, already include this new mounting mechanism. Thanks for the reply shnur.

shnur 12-01-2011 12:34 PM

It includes the easy-mount kit; which should support 2011 if it's shipped after Novermber 14th.

 

EK statement: http://www.ekwaterblocks.com/index.php?mact=News,cntnt01,detail,0&cntnt01articleid=112&cntnt01origid=15&cntnt01returnid=17

 

They will release both nickel and copper. Nickel is actually copper, but plated in nickel, so you can mix them without any worries.


Michalev 12-01-2011 01:04 PM

They are back in stock at Newegg!

FattyBoomba 12-01-2011 01:21 PM

Thanks so much for sharing your experience..

I just got an update last night on my 3 x EVGA video cards that were sent for warranty repair back to EVGA offices here in Australia.

They have come back to me with confirmation that all three video cards were faulty, and they are now crediting back the money for all three cards because the particular model I had card has been discontinued.

I have in the meantime, applied the online store credit (from EVGA initially) back to the purchase of 3 x MSI GeForce GTX 580 3GB Lightning Extreme Edition OC Video Cards and I should receive them in the next 3-5 days.

EVGA Warned me NOT to accept the PC system back from the supplier without a replacement Corsair AX1200 power supply, or else, I will definitely start experiencing the starting of BSOD’s and random restarts again, sometime in the near future because of very likely damage again!

So there you go.. Your experience and my experience with AX1200 causing issues and damage..

My PC Supplier also separately confirmed damaged/faulty motherboard as well.. so you can't possibly have all these faults on motherboard and all three video cards, without the power supply being the cause..

Again.. thanks for sharing..

My NEW System will be 1-2 weeks from arriving, but under no circumstances will I accept it with the original power supply!! Unless I want to kill three new video cards, and a new motherboard and NEW CPU and NEW RAM!!...

Cheers

Nick

Levesque 12-02-2011 06:13 AM

Here it goes again. I think Sauron is living in my computer. ANtec HCP-1200 just died. Sigh. This build is a nightmare.

And now my 3930k seems to still be working fine, but reporting a speed of ''4006'' at post instead of the real speed. rolleyes.gif

A good friend electrician came to check my electrical circuits, breakers, everything. And he don't see any problems.

Can i got 2 bad high-end PSUs in a row? Can it be possible?

Now the puny little AX850 is powering everything up again.

All my employes are coming for the Christmas party tomorrow. I will get drunk to forget this nightmare. biggrin.gif


SLK320 12-02-2011 06:17 AM

How is the EATX power connector supposed to be connected. I'm using a Corsair AX 850W PSU. I have connected the 8-pin cable to EATX12V_2 using all pins on MB. What's the EATX12V_1 connector for?

Please give me instructions on how it should be connected or if I done it correctly.

It's not entirely impossible to receive two faulty PSUs in a row. And if the 850w can power it without problems, then I think it most likely was a faulty 1200w.
Have you spoken to Antec about it? See what they say about the situation

Levesque 12-02-2011 08:32 AM

No. I just RMAed it for an exchange where I bought it.

But Corsair customer services is unbeleivably AWESOME! They are sending me a new AX1200, Express shipping 2 days, 5000km, cross shipping WITHOUT a credit card number! It's on truck for delivery today. Wow!

They really live up to their reputation.

And I tried an ''old'' HX1000 and it's also working fine in my system. The Antec worked fine for 1 hour. I closed to computer to go to work. Come back later, press power... nothing. frown.gif Tried EVERYTHING, and wasn't able to get any power from it. Even with the paperclip trick. frown.gif

They only think bothering me is the 3930k showing a speed of 4006 (target 4.2) at boot. But spped is fine in Windows, all Prime95 tests are fine, 3D Mark 11 loop is fine... What the hell? Is it a BIOS bug, or something is broken on my 3930k????


shnur 12-02-2011 08:35 AM

I wouldn't say it's impossible to have 2 faulty PSU's. The Antec HCP 1200 is a special PSU and should be doing great vs any other PSU's... If the 850 runs it fine; keep on running on it?

You're talking about the 4-pin? It's to stabilize your CPU VRM's power. It would be useful to reach higher clocks with a stable voltage.

``Everything`` means CPU + mobo + only 2X 6970`Crossfire. The AX850 can't power 4X 6970. smile.gif So I'm using Crossfire and not Quad-Fire with the AX850.

I have test every 6970 alone, or in any combiantion of 2, and they are working fine. Was afraid those faulty PSus could gave damged one.

And I don't "mix" power. The AX850 is powering only 2 GPUs, 32 fans and 4 pumps MCP655, while the 1200w is powering everything else: mobo, CPU, 2 GPUs, SSDs and HDDs.

But the 1200w is always dying.Unlucky? I don't know anymore.

In fact any pics of watercooled setups with this board would be sweet.
Thanks.
Damn Dec 8th seems like an eternity away. I really want to get this rig together lol.

WILCO! The mobo block has arrived at the shipping forwarder, so should be another 3 days till it gets to me, then maybe a few days (I'm unbelievably busy - shouldn't be working on the rig at all) or more to get it together/post pics for ya

...unless someone beats me to it

Well, my supplier will get it mid next week... so I'll only get it by the end of the week redface.gif

Why doesn't Windows 7 show the correct speed of my overclocked 3930K? See screenshot for details and why is my CPU rating still @ 7.8? It was at 7.8 before I started overclocking.

370

shnur 12-03-2011 03:19 PM

It's WPI, it has some problems reporting speeds sometimes...

 

Can you go in advanced; maybe 7.8 is something else.

No CPU is at 7.8.

have there been BIOS revisions that take care of the high voltage problem?

Alatar 12-04-2011 04:03 AM

Just ordered my RIVE and 3930K.

Will join soon-ish, will have to see how quickly the etailer ships, but they did have stock. 960€ is kind of expensive but hey that's Finland for you! thumb.gif

Funny guys. smile.gif

Guys, don't be afraid to tweak your BIOS settings with the rampage. It's not SB anymore.

For exemple, it was impossible for me to stabilise 47x100 = 4.7 at 1.35v with my 3930k, but 131x36 = 4.7 at 1.35v is working fine! biggrin.gif

My aim was to find my max 24/7 OC at 1.35v, and I'm happy with 4.7. But 47x100 was impossible. With alot of BIOS tweaking, 131x36 = 4.7 is working just fine, and is rock-stable for me. thumb.gif

shnur 12-04-2011 10:19 AM

Really? I'm reading more and more, the BCLK is not tied to the PCIE anymore?


Levesque 12-04-2011 10:38 AM

Don't know why, but it's impossible for my chip to be stable for me at 47X100 1.35v, and I have try EVERYTHING! You can believe me... smile.gif

But 131x36 =4.7 is rock-stable at 1.35v. biggrin.gif

am getting my board and cpu on the 7 of the week. i already have the ram.

derickwm 12-04-2011 09:14 PM

What kind of OCs has everyone been getting?

badjz 12-05-2011 12:38 AM

Can you list your settings bud?

Whoa. Really?

 

What monitor are you using?

 

Did ASUS state that anywhere?

 

I was just ready to buy triple 120 Hz...

Guess I'm sticking with my 1920x1200s


fat_italian_stallion 12-05-2011 07:21 PM

That sucks... I hate my 1200p monitors. They look like crap compared to my 1440p frown.gif

ReignsOfPower 12-05-2011 07:58 PM

I've got a 30" monitor and a 22" in portrait. Will use that for my OC key. Does it support a portrait orientation at all?

Mine? Nah I just want everyone to start listing their OCs and such so when I completely rehaul the first post with beautiful stats and such I can add a whole lot of OC'ing info.

When you enable the OC key, a semi-transparent overlay appears on the main-display. I could of sworn the manuals say its it can be moved around the display.. for the life of me I can't get it to budge.

So I got my processor in last night and went to install it.

Last week I received my Thermaltake Frio upgrade kit for 2011 compatibility. It looks as if they sent me the upgrade kit for the Frio OCK and not the Frio. I tried for about an hour or two until I finally realized it wasn't the right kit. Very disappointing - I have my new board/processor staring me down until they ship the correct kit.

I actually almost ordered an H100 overnight but decided against the impulse buy wink.gif. Anyone else using an upgrade kit for an older cooler? The holes seem to line up alright, but the problem is that the mounting bars are interfering with the socket itself - not enough clearance.

andytom69 12-06-2011 03:32 PM

i try the O.C. key whit my samsung S27A950D , at 120 hz 1920x 1080 normally , the screen flash on dark ..
but ...at 60hz is ok..
OC key don't have compatibility whit 120 hz..mad.gif

Lord Vile 12-06-2011 03:39 PM

O.K. so I'm waiting for the EK board block to come out on the 8th, and I read the following info on their website:

"A maximum diameter of barbs/fittings on SB part of the water block kit must be 22.2 mm in order to allow the installation of the graphics card mounted with EK-FC series backplate in the first PCIe x16 slot!"

I have 2 EVGA Hydrocopper 2 graphics cards, anyone think there will be a problem with installation? I am planning on using bitspower fittings, but can't find specifications on their diameter. I'm assuming they are all standard, but assuming often leads to problems.

Thanks.

shnur 12-06-2011 04:22 PM

Lord Vile, I think you should be fine, usually that would be if you're having irregular fittings or 45 degrees pointing towards the gpu's.

I just measured one of my Bitspower 0.5" ID 0.75" OD compression fittings, and the outer diameter was about 1.025" or 26.035 mm. frown.gif

Does the Koolance block have this limitation too?

Edit: I looked at the pics of the EK and Koolance blocks, and it looks like the Koolance connections are a little farther from the first PCIe slot than on the EK. It's hard to tell from the angle that the pics were taken though.

shnur 12-06-2011 07:17 PM

Yeah; Koolance block also covers more.

I looked at the EK-FC series backplate that they mention in the quote I posted. I originally thought it was a GPU cooling block, but it looks like it's just a protective backplate for a non-water cooled GPU.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQOmInFQLyU&feature=related

It seems that if you are using that backplate and just doing board and CPU water cooling there might be an issue with fittings larger than 22mm and installing the GPU in the first slot. Hopefully shnur is right and there won't be a problem biggrin.gif

I'm going to order it and hope for the best.
