1 in 10? OUCH!!!

Props to them for being prompt and honest, but that's going to really hurt their rep with newer customers...

pegotico 2 Builds 1 point 39 months ago

yes... CAOS.

Not good. I almost ordered one of these for my recent build. EKWB is doing the right thing, if only VW were so honest! lol

oh shoot, just helped my friend install his, better let him know :-/

pegotico 2 Builds 1 point 39 months ago

lets hope he has the newer revision..

kazini 1 point 39 months ago

he doesn't he hasn't had any leakage yet, but he knew before i told him and is already in the process of getting a replacement, also still had his kraken x61 laying aroudn so that works in the meantime

pegotico 2 Builds 2 points 39 months ago

That is great! :) I can't imagine a leakage and damaging all components. Just the hassle one would have to go through..

kazini 1 point 39 months ago

however his new RAM may be faulty and last night he spilled soda on his razer blackwidow chroma so he's pretty upset. Keep in mind this guy is usually super conscientious about that kind of stuff (Literally won't let me drink stuff near his desk usually.

Literally won't let me drink stuff near his desk usually

and he drinks.. go figure.

Apparently it's limited to revision 1.0 coolers right now.

I just got my replacement, R 1.1. It still leaking. So much for just R 1.0. I think it's time I get a different AIO, Maybe Swiftech's new AIO?

zerealfrenchy 1 point 39 months ago

yup, I am using one right now. Unfortunately for me I modded it by adding a bridge to a mobo block....so draining and changing the unit is going to be a pain in the xss.

Though so far I have NO problems at all and the unit works perfect.....but under it is about 2500$ worth of parts so no choice but changing it.

:(
