    Hi,
    Yeah same for the gpu blocks really
    More turns they use a sticky gasket for assembly making it easier.
    That stuff does leach.

    Just took apart my copper titan Xp water block that thing was about to leak liquid outside the gasket :/

    You are right but my suggestion was mostly based on the fact that a SQUARE base would also perform better....I don't know the size of the targeted audience though. Indeed, a custom IHS makes more sense but you still have the less than ideal "round" base leading to users "dropping" the monoblock for standalone blocks...

    Yeah I would be happy with a square cold plate upgrade I would buy it.

    You could also sell it as an upgrade to existing Monoblock owners so that the it can be saved...As it stands now it will go hanging on the wall for decoration for those delidding and its a shame since it does look great.

    If you will, please submit a support ticket for both. The oring oil is something well known to us. I don't like it myself, but there will need to be sufficient requests from the community to get this change to happen

    Got some pics of that? And was the oring damaged or anything? Used a new card when you purchased it? Anything of issue like that, I like to follow up with the team so we can make sure everyone in QA/QC is doing their job properly.

    Raja, so far the Omega is working perfectly with my 7900X. I do have a question though. On top of the SATA ports, there is a gorgeous (just a joke) pink sticker. Is it OK to remove that? Perhaps remove it gently and stick it to the back of the board or in a less obvious/visible spot?

    Hi,
    Nope no images
    I bought it from EK directly 12/2017 few days after I received my titan Xp yeah tip top of the crypo mining craze so titan Xp was only a couple hundred more than another 1080ti ftw3 :/

    Seemed to be the screws weren't all the same torque

    Flushing out my x99 now and I'll break down the cpu/ evo block and 1080ti ftw3 block and clean them out
    I'll photo op if anything looks the same

    I get in a hurry and often don't document stuff like this just thankful things didn't leak

    Almost stripped a x299 prime deluxe mono block screw breaking it down darn things were tight kind of too tight boy just can't get a happy medium

    Do you still have the little QA stickers on the side? If so, feel free to just go ahead and RMA it and save yourself some headache. Otherwise, keep me in the loop with it and let me know if you have any more issues. I'll help you get everything taken care of. If you need some additional block screws, we can send those out, too.

    Yeah, please don't remind me about the crypto craze. Those are dark times that are best forgotten...

    Raja, tried updating Bios today and get error code 70 and it no longer boots. Tried inserting the USB and hitting the Bios flashback button, but nothing happens.

    Is it a fat32 formatted drive and have you renamed the file correctly? Details are in section 2-16 (page 64) of the manual.



    Chinese New Year so the office is closed until next week. Can’t do much for you until they are back.
