Seasonic RMA A+

15 December 2017 - 08:33 AM

I sent in a Seasonic Platinum (first generation) after 5 years of use because it failed to hold a load above 600watts and received a Platinum ULTRA Prime in return. Seasonic got my unit Monday and today (Friday) a new one showed up at my door. Haven't had to RMA anytime to Seasonic until now, but its good to know they stand behind the warranty and extremely easy to deal with.

galvanized corrosion in nickel loop?

08 September 2017 - 09:08 PM

So I am observing some light galvanized corrosion in my loop. Expect what confuses me is that all the blocks are nickel plated copper. Only the Fittings and Radiator are Brass. Neither of which shows any signs of corrosion. So I'm really confused of what causing it though it seems the worse on the block connected the radiator which has the nickel partly stripped and turning green. I took the loop completely apart and cleaned all the blocks, the CPU block had a nasty big green goop all in it. After I cleaned it the block still has all the nickel plating on it unlike the other blocks. Other the replacing the fittings and Radiator I'm not sure what to do.


Anyone come across this before?

I bought the wrong waterblock...grrrr!

Its kinda my mistake for not realizing the part number didn't match when ordering. But EK briefly made a 1080TI FE only block and than realized they could sell Titan Xp blocks and with a little extra milling the whole pascal series under one block.
Well I somehow had the bad luck of finding the one place that still sells the old block. Just my luck... I got a hacksaw and I just have to cut the front acrylic off so the DVI ports fit than it the same as the new blocks.
I'll post some pictures once I start cutting into it.

Montana Earthquake

06 July 2017 - 01:24 PM

Anyone else feel the earthquake last night about 12:30AM (MT)? It was 60miles Northwest from where I live. It shook the house and set off a few car alarms. The aftershock felt like a train next to me. This was one of more intense quakes I've felt, usually I can't tell between the local coal train going through town and a earthquake. You know the normal low rumble.
