@RJR: Sadly, ECS mainly works as OEM brand. :lol: I think you don't know that.

Well, I might have known that (look at the top left and first paragraph):

Take a good look at the pictures on the second page, you can get a good idea of the quality of their boards by just looking at them. There guts are still OEM quality, not to say you can't get lucky but I wouldn't take a chance for this kind of money.

Winds' reviews usually last a day then they fade away, this one is still going....hmmmm

ECS is a crap board. They are still trying to breach the enthusiast market with their OEM quality boards.

They can add all the bells and whistles they want but until they build better quality PCBs they will remain crap compared to ASUS/Gigabyte/Etc.

Thanks for the crap review.

In Topic: Could I have a faulty temp sensor?

wow rjr, how did you come up with that solution ?

I tried to increase my flow rate by using a larger pump, when this didn't work it was obvious that something was restricting the flow. That plate was the culprit (dog hair, don't ask :lol: ).

The HeatKiller blocks have a plate inside with little slits in it. I know the only time I ever had a temp problem with mine is when these slits became obstructed.
Once I took apart the block and cleaned it, been good to go ever since. Right now it's folding at 100% (i7 2600K @ 4.6) and maxes at 57c. You may want to take your block apart and check.
