    It does not surprise me that the Dutch review also shows the $350 MSI X299 Pro Carbon beating out the R6E and most other Asus and Gigabyte X299 mobos. I mentioned to someone in the Apex thread that...
  2. When I placed my EK pre-order for three R6E...

    When I placed my EK pre-order for three R6E clear-nickel monoblocks last Monday when they first listed the product, their expected ship date was listed as Sep 25. But last Wednesday, two days later,...
  3. Newegg has not made the 7940X/7960X/7980XE...

    Newegg has not made the 7940X/7960X/7980XE available for purchase today. I know, because I run various Python Web-scraping scripts to monitor changes in prices and in-stock status in various U.S....
  4. EK has previously replied to some people that...

    EK has previously replied to some people that they will provide a solution for cooling the 10G chip, which is very likely a small heatsink. A little 2-inch heatsink only costs about $5 USD. So cost...
  5. No, the 10G chip will not also be water-cooled,...

    No, the 10G chip will not also be water-cooled, and it really doesn't need anything more than a 2-inch finned heatsink. Our discussions on this thread have been about having EK provide a replacement...
  6. If you can follow their instructions to remove...

    If you can follow their instructions to remove the VRM heatsink and I/O cover screws, and if you are installing a water loop anyway, it is a very safe assumption that you are mechanically-inclined...
  7. EK posted the Installation Manual for their R6E...

    EK posted the Installation Manual for their R6E monoblock this morning. The clear-nickel and black R6E monoblock versions point to two separate PDF files, but they are identical files, so both...

    If you are going to delid your 7800X yourself, are you using a delidding tool (der8auer's tool has not been released yet), or a razor blade, or a chisel and bench vise, or....?

    Keep in mind that...
  9. Yep, the Prime denoising is a CPU-muncher, which...

    Yep, the Prime denoising is a CPU-muncher, which was why I mentioned it. Photomatix HDR also has some a number of settings that chew up CPU time, especially since I sometimes twirl the knobs and...
  10. Video and photo software would not bottleneck 18...

    Video and photo software would not bottleneck 18 cores. But none of the software out there, including Adobe's Premiere Pro, Photoshop, and all of Adobe's other software, which tends to be more...
  11. I plan to use two 7900X and one 7940X CPUs for...

    I plan to use two 7900X and one 7940X CPUs for three R6E workstation builds. I already have two 7900X, just waiting on the 7940X and I pre-ordered three EK monoblocks. Back in June, I was thinking of...
  12. Yep, hemostats have the adjustable locking...

    Yep, hemostats have the adjustable locking notches on their handles, which makes them more useful than forceps in situations where you need to clamp something. I have also used a locked hemostat as a...
  13. That is great to know that EK is aware of the...

    That is great to know that EK is aware of the issue and fixing it!

    I am not even going to use the "RAMPAGE VI" name plate on their clear-nickel monoblock though. Once you remove the black name...
  14. Meh... along with mobo installations, if you...

    Meh... along with mobo installations, if you modify and disassemble PC cases, other electronics, build furniture, etc, nothing beats a great beefy ratcheting screwdriver with a thick handle. You can...
  15. I wouldn't worry about DIMM slots or PCIe slots...

    I wouldn't worry about DIMM slots or PCIe slots being in their open position. That can happen just through regular handling. And Asus likely went back and modified all their previously-manufactured...
  16. Yep, they make a great kit too. Sometimes,...

    Yep, they make a great kit too. Sometimes, though, you need far more torque that what can be applied using the skinny ratcheting screwdriver. So you put the bit onto the Snap-On*ratcheting...
  17. Yep, surgical hemostats have a multitude of uses...

    Yep, surgical hemostats have a multitude of uses in electronics repair. Another indispensable tool is a magnetic ratcheting screwdriver. And here in the U.S., the very best magnetic ratcheting...
  18. The I/O cover is not totally enclosed. Along the...

    The I/O cover is not totally enclosed. Along the upper-right edge of the I/O cover, where the cover meets the mobo, there is a 2 1/4 inch long and 3/8 inch high opening where heat radiates out from...

    Yeah, I will post some photos of the patient's innards all taken apart (as my wife words it) either this evening or tomorrow evening at the latest.
  20. Ideally, the replacement heatsink would just use...

    Ideally, the replacement heatsink would just use the same two mounting screws and screw holes that are used by the original I/O heatsink. Any use of an adhesive would not be the right application in...
  21. Their wording of "the monoblock will cover all...

    Their wording of "the monoblock will cover all the essential cooling including the 10G chip" will likely mean that they will supply a separate heatsink, ideally using the same two mobo screw holes as...
  22. For thermal pads, I just use the ones supplied by...

    For thermal pads, I just use the ones supplied by EK both on their MSI Pro Carbon and R6E monoblocks, and also the thermal pads included with their M.2 heatsinks. My three favorite thermal pastes are...
  23. To remove the PCH chipset cover, just unscrew the...

    To remove the PCH chipset cover, just unscrew the one visible screw that is located over the on-board M.2 slot's armor and located above the bottom PCIe slot. Once you remove that screw, the M.2...

    Just to clarify...My top rad is pulling cool air from the outside and the fans are intakes pointing into the case. The rad fans are not exhausts that push warm interior air through the rad.

    I am...

    Woohoo! Santa Claus arrived today, dressed in a FedEx uniform, and delivered three boxes of R6E. Initial inspection of all three mobos show pristine socket pins without a single bent socket pin, and...
